    Perhaps get the manager to approach someone else in the group as they leave and ask for some customer feedback? It could be phrased somewhat like this "we notice that you didn't tip our staff and that's perfectly acceptable. What could our staff had done to improve your experience this evening?"

    You know what, that's not a bad idea. If said properly it could seem quite innocent. I like!

    I would consider this stealing/rude and just plain dishonest. I think it's very unfair of her to do that. I would do as suggested and try to trip her up on it.

    Id hate to be her friend!
    We always pay group bills on our card, but will hand over the extra cash into the tip jar.

    Do you have the right to say something? No.

    What a way to get a free lunch - by ripping off your friends.
    This is what I am thinking.

    No only is she getting a free meal, but she's making money of her/her friends outings.

    It's just wrong.

    Is the current place where you work one where you can pick up the bill and money from the table when it is all collected? Maybe be faster than her.

    Hand her the bill and ask will you be paying by card again today mam.

    I like the one about bringing over the credit card recipt.
    I've tried 'beating her to the bill' before, she just says 'i havnt put in yet, I don't have cash, can I put it on my card etc' there is always an excuse.

    Yes it is stealing. My bil's friend is notorious for doing this! He asks everyone for their share plus tips, then pops the bill on his credit card and pockets the money lol I don't agree with it. It's kinda messed up.
