Sometimes tips are included on your ticket when you dine out and sometimes it isn't. I don't always look at the entire ticket when I pay at a restaurant. I look at the total and pay the bill. A few night s ago my family and I went to dinner. I paid the bill and they left the tip. When I got in my car I realized that gratitude was included on the bill. Our waiter got an included tip and the tip money that was left on the table. He made out with over $50! I almost got out of my car, walked back into the restaurant and asked for half of the tip money because it was a mistake to leave two different tips.
