People only do that when they want you to know they aren't tipping you because you did a crappy job.
What I have always been told is (if you plan on it) leave a cash tip rather than filling it in on the receipt for a couple different reasons. But ultimately, I've heard surprising/upsetting stories of servers who will take it upon themselves to fill out that part of the receipt so they are giving themselves a tip and youre paying for it. I have always crossed out the tip line (like you would for a check) and fill in what my total was at the bottom leaving no room for anyone else to write a number. So it could have been nothing personal, or anything to do with service. Just a customer whos probably heard the same things and protecting their financially security.
maybe next time you should serve a table topless? I'm just sayin'
