After eating out at a restaurant would you consider it rude if the waiter was to come up to you and ask you if you had left a tip?

long story short this is what happened to me last night. It took me aback because I've never had a server ask me if I left a tip, which I always do anyway. After I had paid the bill I placed the tip in the bill holder the waiter claimed there was nothing in there and after I insisted that I put 7$ in it he tried to say maybe it fell out which I know it didn't. So I was wondering if you guys considered it rude for a waiter to ask about their tip.

    I saw a waiter get fired for complaining to a customer about the size of his tip...

    But if i did not leave a tip it would be because the service was bad,and if asked i would tell them.My wife was a waitress for several years,a very good waitress,but she told me that the worst tippers are woman,and the most demanding on service!

    Of course it's rude. You don't just go up to someone and ask if they left you money.

    Under no circumstances should a waiter or waitress EVER ask the customer if they left a tip. I believe in tipping only if they have done a good job..I don't like the tip included crap.

    Yes,it was very rude.I would have asked the manager if that was the policy of the restaurant.

    say what?
    Depends on his motives. He might be concerned someone is stealing his tips or he just might be rude.

    I always do even if they do a bad job, I just give those one significantly less of a tip.
