According to the receipts, each customer left no additional gratuity. <br>No Tip Night 1 <a title="bartending" target="_blank" href="" rel="noopener">#bartending</a> <a title="atlanta" target="_blank" href="" rel="noopener">#atlanta</a><br>The video caused a massive rift in the comments section as commenters debated whether or not bartenders deserved an &#8220;additional gratuity.&#8221; <br>Many of the 333 comments noted that there is an 18% mandatory service charge already on the receipts.<br>&#8220;I&#8217;m a bartender too, but girl it says additional gratuity,&#8221; @amandaeidlin1 said.<br>&#8220;Gratuity in ATL is like 18-20%. The tip is included in the total,&#8221; @ms.davenport commented.<br>Others, however, pointed out that the bartender doesn&#8217;t walk away with the full 18% service charge since it&#8217;s spread around to all service workers. <br>&#8220;Even if tip is included if I have a good server I always tip more on op of that. They get paid like $5-$6 an hour. What is wrong with y&#8217;all?,&#8221; @diamondmsaint said.<br>&#8220;Gratuity goes to the entire house! Servers and bartenders most likely see $2 of that. Just educate yourself,&#8221; @y.xiovu remarked.<br>Although it may sound the same, a &#8220;service charge&#8221; is a percentage added on by the venue that gets equally distributed to every employee. This means that an 18% service charge is a mandatory gratuity included in your receipt that goes to service workers like the cooks, janitors, wait staff, etc. <br>According to <a href=""></a>, &#8220;While the &#8216;tip&#8217; versus &#8216;service charge&#8217; distinction may not seem too important to a customer, it may make a big difference to your server. That&#8217;s because a &#8216;tip&#8217; belongs to the server, according to the IRS, while a &#8216;service charge&#8217; may not.&#8221;<br>The Daily Dot reached out to @beautiyfulbones via TikTok direct message.<br> <strong>Must-reads on the Daily Dot </strong><br>Clara is a full-time digital nomad writing about culture, food, and music.
