Default Restaurant auto-tipping

Many restaurants add an automatic gratuity for "large" parties. My wife and I ate lunch at a little cafe in Fort Lauderdale yesterday, and while I could lose a little weight, I don't think the two of us constituted a large party. And yet, our bill of less than $30 included a gratuity. The amount was less than I would normally tip. But I decided that since they set the rule, I would abide by it and the server lost out a little bit.
