Mistake or bad service?

I just got back from a birthday dinner at TGIFriday's. It was the three of us and two of us were splitting the bill so my other friend didn't have to pay since its his birthday. We got excellent service, no complains whatsoever...till the bill came.

I was paying in cash and my friend was paying with her credit card, we both gave it to the server and told him half cash, half credit. No problem until he came back with the slip for her to sign and we notice that he charge the total amount to her credit card. We told the server that we give him cash and put the rest on her card. He thought it was a tip. A 27 tip on a 54 bill?

Was this an honest mistake or bad service? I have nothing against tipping and we did infact gave him a tip because we got great service. I just want to know if this is the norm in your area because I notice a lot of servers in my area are getting a bit more aggressive when it comes to tip such as not giving back change or assuming that like the one above is a tip and so on.
