Is The Rock a good tipper?

~Roll mouse over photo to derobe~

Place: Hereford House
Location: Kansas City

Recently, an actor known as “The Rock” was a customer of mine at a well-known steak-house that has been in business for 50 years. He called ahead and asked for the restaurant to open early to accommodate him, as he was trying to avoid fans. I got to be the lucky fool who had to open and set-up for this joker. He ran me with with this little complaint, ten refills on his soda, too much butter on his garlic toast, etc. The whole ordeal was hardly worth the lousy $7.00 tip I got. While this did average to be about 25%, I would think that a man that has dolls and watches in his likeness could have tossed at least a $20 for the extra time and service. This guy is not a “Rock” to me, just a cheap pebble.

I don’t consider myself greedy or ungrateful, I’m just a lowly server and I would tip more than that if I imposed on someone’s personal time like that. He is definitely the poorest celebrity tipper I have ever served.

Also, the Stained Apron has some great stuff.

all you need to know about a person is the tip they leave.

So…let me get this straight, the meal costs $7×4 or $28.00, according to YOUR math, ($7.00 tip = 25% of the total cost of the meal). And you want what? A $20.00 tip? HAHAHA, Dude you’re a trip. Who cares if your job requires you to be there and open early? It’s a requirement of your job Dude, don’t get mad at the Rock, go ahead and bitch at your boss. No?? I didn’t think you would. It’s too bad your job interferes with your couch time, welcome to life Dude. You loser.
