Monday Manners Rule #18: Tip on the Original, Not the Discount

Attention Bar & Restaurant Patrons,

When you receive a round on the house, or use a gift certificate, or flash your frequent drinker card, and your bill becomes lower than it should have been without the freebie/promo/discount you lucked out on, do not slight the bartender or server. Yes, your meal was free or cheap but that does not mean that the person making your night out enjoyable deserves any less. 

Look at the total of the amount owed before that number shrunk down and pony up on that.

  1. Great post! I was doing research online about taking a princess cruise vacation with my wife and came across your blog. I was talking to her about this same subject so thank you for this information.
