    How often do you not tip?

    I dunno. I personally hate the term.

    I hope you weren't playing PS with celebrities. Seems like it'd be a waste if you weren't getting plastered and talking crap about other celebrities, or getting them to hook you up with groupies.

    I tip frequently because I tend to go back to places that give and continue to give me good service. If I go to a new place and get bad service. I don't tip and don't come back. On a side note I will argue with management and refuse to pay if they put an automatic gratuity charge on my bill (normal 18 to 20 percent).

    I almost got hooked up with Fabio and his harem one night. We kept the restaurant open just for him and his ladies and since I was head server I obviously took the table. I kept making them all laugh and they asked if I would go with them but I had to close and it turned out to be way to complicated trying to figure out where they would be. I lost out that night, except for the huge tip.

    Apparently her bar doesn't do Bev-Intel reports.

    I admit it. I'm a chincy tipper. I know what waitstaff makes, and it's not chump change. That's why I laugh at concepts like a tip position minimum wage. Anyone even remotely on the inside knows that the actual check they get is such a small percentage of their wages. Plus people seem to want to "go nuts" with tipping. If service is great, I leave 10%. I don't leave more because of public perception and people want to get into some huge pissing match about "oh yeah, well I tip them <enter ungodly number here> percent".

    Well, generally any girl that knocks on my door at 3AM is more than willing to spill the contents of her blouse too.
