Servers/separate checks and were professional

I recently completed a 10 day tour where most of us had separate checks, and the two couples who didn't, well, it wasn't always easy for the servers to remember because they weren't necessarily sitting together.

Not once did any of them display their feelings about what must have been a real hassle considering that at times there were 18 of us, and the minimum was often16.

Often the servers auctioned off the meals but who can blame them, especially when the restaurants in question were not exactly high end.

I know how much of a hassle separate checks can be so I was impressed and tipped them more than 20% because I suspected some of my fellow travelers didn't feel the same or understand the difficulty.
