No.  They are part of the bill and in many higher end places now it is already included in the bill (a practice I hate!)

I would choose not to eat at a place that included the tip in the bill. I like to tip on how well the service is. Unless I was 100% geting laid. Lol jk on the last part.

Little tip for my ficonauts, make sure you make a line on the tip part if you are gonna tip them with cash. One time they gave themselves a $15 tip for a $18 worths of drinks and i didnt noticed until 2 weeks later.

Re: Tips .. cash advance ?

Some people prefer their tips in cash so they don't have to run it through the POS system at the end of the night.

I actually like to keep  cash on me for tips.. because I used to like that when I was a server, plus it makes me think twice about tipping too crazy with my credit LOL after a few drinks. ahhaa

Definitely always fill that slip out showing no tip if you tip in cash. Back when I was a server we had a couple of girls fired because they would give themselves tips on card slips that weren't filled out.
