commented on Food News: Renee Erickson Eliminates Tipping, New Restaurants for Queen Anne, the Central District, and Belltown
@6 fair point and making it clear is probably necessary because of the tipping culture. But it also, like separating sales tax, sends the message "this amount is someone else's fault"
@4 but in that situation you are billed for (and expect) the labor costs. You don't just choose to give the mechanic some amount of money separate from the payment to the business (and determined by you based on .... based on what? The conventional amount that year, or whether you have a headache, or whether the mechanic was attractive enough?.)
