    Cool guy indeed.

    I generally only tip when service beyond what is expected. And when I do tip, I tip big especially when I am in a hurry. I have left 100% - 150% tip. I was in a hurry and it was worth it to make my appointment. Just so in case you were wondering like $50 thats all.

    Note I am never waited on by people I know because it seems human nature to expect your friends to leave a tips. Or at least that is the mentality of my friends.

    Yeah, every year or so there's a story in the news about some shooter leaving an enormous tip to his wait-person. Inevitably when they show the waitress, she's young and beautiful. Never underestimate the desire of a wealthy, liquor-induced guy to try and impress a chick with money. Notice how it never happens at iHop?!

    Here's a tip: Don't bet on the favorite horse to "show". Chances are that he will only pay $2.20 on a $2 ticket. So why gamble $2 in order to make 20 cents.

    LOL, that is a fact. Women with 'huge', 'enourmous', 'massive', 'overwhelmingly large' boobs get the 'bigger' tips over their co-workers.

    Wow, cool story...! That guy rocks...


    i've given 100, 200%; 50 on many occasions, NEVER 15-20% unless the service is horrible... When i was a graphic designer, i took my boss out to lunch once; paid and tipped the waiter who followed us out to the car when we left, to thank me; my boss turns to me and says, "Maybe i'm paying you too much...?"

    LOL...

    I normally tip pretty well, but the strange thing for me is tipping at breakfast. The food is usually pretty cheap, so when you get a $6 bill for eggs, pancakes, whatever, I'll normally leave $10. $1.20 just doesn't seem right, plus the diner set usually bust their rears re-filling coffee, etc.

    I "tipped" her for awhile and then gave her the "whole" thing when she couldn't stand it anymore. (LOL) Usually 20-25% unless I am with the wife and she thinks the waitress is flirting with me, in which case the waitress gets the shaft only about 10-15%

    $111. Have tipped $100 bills several times. Believe me, they don't buy as much as they used to. I'd rather overtip than donate to charities. At least when I tip, I see who the money's going to (I think)...
