Vegas Chatter dug up some good reader tips about some unusual charges on dining receipts. First up, an automatic 21 percent tip on parties of six or more at China Poblano at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.

“Our reader found out that 18 percent of the tip goes to the staff, but the extra three percent goes directly to the restaurant for ‘training and incentives.’”

The other? Le Thai in Downtown Vegas charged a “rounding adjustment,” rounding the check featured up two cents from $18.38 to $18.40.

Previously the site uncovered a 50 cent fee for water at Border Grill at Mandalay Bay.
