Ruby Tuesday: Bring Back Auto Gratuity on Parties of 6 or More

Add automatic gratuity to large parties for servers, because often these large parties are shared and tips must be split between multiple people in the restaurant.

Why is this important?

This would eliminate guesswork on bill paying for servers. With auto gratuity, servers can wait on large tables without the fear of their money or time being wasted by a party that gives a minuscule or nonexistent tip.


Reasons for signing

  • I signed due to the patrons that come to eat with parties of say “30”, and run the server crazy and leave nothing but aggravation. Also the server still has to tip out the total amount of the bill whether they’re giving a tip or not. Which is completely unfair! So the automatic gratuity should be added to parties of six or more due to this.
  • Parties are hard work, and especially with very large parties you're sacrificing other tables to wait on them and give them the attention they deserve. It's time we start getting the tip we deserve for losing other tables and the work we do on these parties. I've seen servers get stiffed on parties of 10+ and that's devastating when you're getting skipped for 30 minutes to take the party.
  • Too often I see cheapskate large parties leave no tip either because they don't have to or because they were mad that it took time for their food to come out to the table.
