    it was by accident, I meant to tip her 20%.

    I was doing the math in my head, came up with the 10% number and meant to double it and then add it to the grand total. But this morning when I looked at the receipt, I realized I fucked up and only wrote in the original 10%.

    $200 bill

    gave her $20 instead of $40

    however, out of the $200, almost half of it was wine so that must count on my side for something.

    that industry really bamboozled us on the math anyway. the restaurants food prices are always going up, so the 10% tip rate means an equal increase to the server. but in reality we have to pay for the increase in the meal costs & pay a higher % of that increase to the server....:dontknow:

    Seriously, major dick move. If you are local, I would go there, apologize and leave her the remaining tip. She is taxed based on what she sells. You not only left her a shitty tip, you also screwed her in her "taxable" sales since you didn't even leave the minimum of 12-15%. You are basically Mr Pink, from Reservoir Dogs.

    especially with wine:

    table one orders $10 appetizer and $15 bottle wine: $25 total. $5 tip at 20%

    table two orders $10 appetizer and $200 bottle wine: $215 total. The same waitress doing the exact same service now deserves a $43 tip (20 percent)?

    That tip was not hers to keep, she split that tip with the other 8 servers and the bartender since you probably didn't tip him/her separately. :facepalm:

    it's like an hour's drive, don't know when she's working, etc. no fucking way I'm going all the way back up to give her an extra $20 bucks. It was an honest mistake she can handle it.

    Then you screwed her a third time by not turning the table over to a better tipping customer all night...
