New Trend in Tipping?

PhillyPhanatic | Jul 1, 2011 02:38 PM

I have a quick question for everyone. I have been to two separate restaurants in the past week that have both included an 18% gratuity for my party of two (with the option to add more). I didn't necessarily have a problem with it, as I usually tip 20%, but I wasn't real happy about it either. Is this part of some new trend or did I just happen to pick the two places in Dallas that do this?
