The meal was $250... $20 is an insult...
I'd have chased him as well and give it him back for his cheek.

I saw that in LA last year when we were going into a good restaurant (Little door I think ?) a waitress was running after a Brit asking what was wrong as he only left 20% ! My LA friend was shocked - at the small tip rather yah. 25-30% he said locals tip - as a Brit I was shocked she was actually chasing the customer !

We still went in and had a fabulous meal and as I didnt pay now sure what John tipped ... but we didnt get chased lol

Really? If you had done that to me Id have taken the $20 tip back. Personally I would have tipped more but unless its a compulsory tip then everything should be accepted graciously and it would be bad mannered to confront a diner

My Mum was once chased by a waitress screaming at her because she hadnt tipped, Mum told her politely that it was on the table if shed bothered to look. Had I have been there, Id have gone back in and taken it back after being shown up like that

Ive never understood why tipping is done in percentages

Dors the waiter/waitress do more work serving lobster and caviar in a Michelin starred restaurant than in a greasy spoons cafe ?

25-30%?! Wowsers! That seems like a ridiculous amount!

If someone had chased me, I would have took it back too ! How do we know that the server was worth more than $20. She could have been miserable, not checking on them, not refilling drinks etc...

$20 for probably about 1/2yrs work ( on that one table) is perfectly acceptable.

Anyone who chased me to get me to increase their tip would result in myself going back and demanding my tip back and compensation from the employee/restaurant. I certainly would be taking it up with management at the time as well explaining why.
