We’re Celebrities And We Suck At Tipping!
I work at Rochester bars three nights a week (Wicked Moose-Wednesdays, Legends-Thursdays and Fridays) and get to see first-hand how hard the bar staff works, so stories like this bunch my boxers. And if you’re a self-enititled celeb worth millions, it’s angers me even more if you’re a BAD TIPPER. Let’s meet some of them.
Hi, I’m Sean Penn
Not only do I excel in appearing to have dressed myself with my eyes closed and having a face that resembles a catcher’s mitt, but I’ve been rumored to have walked out numerous times without tipping. One confirmed case was in New Orleans with my buddies when we racked up a $450 bill and bailed, leaving ZERO for our server.
Hey, it’s Britney b**ch!
But maybe you should slide the word “the” in between those two ‘B’ words, since I once threw change at the feet of a valet attendant and said, “There’s your tip.” I also left a $26 tip on a $500 bill, which comes to 5%.
I may have judged people on The Voice, but I hope you don’t judge me when you find out I’ve been known to leave autographed pictures of myself instead of cash. But hey, you should love me as much as I do!
Now, maybe it’s because they’ve been removed from REAL WORK, they’ve forgotten what it takes to make a buck. Or maybe they’re just straight up aholes. Either way, AND THIS GOES TO ANYONE WHO TREATS RESTAURANT/BAR STAFF LIKE CRAP: THEY’RE YOUR SERVERS, NOT YOUR SLAVES!
So service industry peeps unite! What’s your worst tipping experience?
Oh, and if you need more inspiration, here’s the rest of the horrible celebrity tippers.
