Cash only gratuity allowed ... you may NOT charge the TIP to your CC.

Why is this even a practice at certain restaurants? Cash only tip??
Certainly it's one more reason to always carry ca$h on your person, but come on now. I'm especially thankful that none of us had to scurry off to a nearby ATM to get cash. So, fellow posters (and waitstaff included) ... please chime in explaining WHY such a practice even exists. TIA.
