Jeff Ruby's lawsuit highlights absurdity of tipping protocol | Letters

“ The typical meal at Jeff Ruby’s runs $150 per person for a table of four. That amounts to a minimum bill of $600. At 20%, the server would receive a $120 for the tip. But that same server, doing exactly the same amount of work at a typical restaurant would have a table billing of $250 to $300 leaving a tip of $50. This discrepancy only highlights the absurdity of the American tipping protocol.
