Tipping between shifts

LARaven | Mar 6, 2008 04:17 PM

When you happen to dine near shift change how do you tip?
My dad and I went out to eat and we had already gotten all our food, refills etc and the waitress said she was going home and someone else would be taking over. The only thing we had left was our bill.
She was a good and attentive server and I wanted to make sure she got her fair share, I pretty much knew what the bill would be so I tipped her accordingly. Should I have asked for the check before she left or just wait and leave tip for whoever brought the check but did not do any actual service?
Most of the time when I got between shift or near break it was mid meal where I would still be needing refills or maybe order dessert or something so I just leave tip for the last server.
