Op I'm glad you said something that was terrible for them to say something within hearing of customers.
I hate it when we get an automatic tip added for our brood (parents and kids=8) Many servers in our area seem pretty lazy and inattentive when they get a big group mostly kids. We don't go out as a family too often and I am pretty picky where we go because of this.
