    Couple arrested for not paying tips!

    Gratuities are always a controversial subject, but at least you don't get arrested for not paying them on a cruise! Read this!

    Leslie Pope and John Wagner were handcuffed and transported from the Lehigh Pub

    Well done!

    Good for Leslie Pope and John Wagner -principled people.

    The protest was/is worth getting arrested.
    It'll bring things to a head, service-wise
    -at least at the Lehigh Pub, which we all now know to avoid.

    Maybe this incident will close them down: it's their Management's fault
    that it's come to this!

      quite agree with you here.i don't mind tipping if i've had good service,but it shouldn't be expected when bad service has been given.we've all seen it;the rolling eyes,chewing of hair/pen,disinterested expression.these people need to be trained properly in Customer Service in the 1st place before they're let loose on the public, i HATE it !!thanks,now you've got ME started........must be almost a friday.:mad:
      I'd rather be in my cosy bed !!!!!!!!:p

            You'll both have to wait and see.
            Even I don't know yet what will crop up.

            I play with my signature block (you can too, if you know how)
            Something will come up!

                      In the UK they add service but you can deduct it if you want to...
                      here service is called "discretionary".
                      Furthermore, if you dont feel the meal itself was worth the money, you are able to leave the value you consider the meal was worth, and your contact details should their legal department choose to take the matter further.

                        I'm wondering the same thing myself.

                        The last line of the article says...
                        Pottsville, Pa., said.

                        so it may be in Pottsville, PENNSYLVANIA ??

                          Don't worry Petel, it's in Pensylvania, USA. I don't think this situation will be coming to our high streets any time soon!!!:D

                            it's got to be the usa.
                            is it true that new york waiters chase you down the street if you don't tip them 25%?
                            have a nice day !

                              I think the location is at the Lehigh Valley area in Allentown about 50 miles from Pottsville.
