Is David Beckham a good tipper?

~ Roll mouse over photo to Derobe ~

Thanks for the great story, Claudia.
Location: Culver City, CA
Place: Joxer Daily’s Pub

I’m a former bartender at Joxer Daily’s. Sorry I waited so long to submit my story but I would have been poor form to discuss this while I was working there. It was early November when a few boys from the LA Galaxy came to the Pub. They come in from time to time because the crowd at Joxer’s knows their football and nobody treats the boys too special.
The Galaxy had just played Hollywood United F.C. for charity to benefit victims of the LA wildfires. Troy Roberts and Landon Donovan came in first. Everybody loves Landon. He’s always nice to everybody when he comes in. Nobody suspected for a moment that Becks would ever show up. Then after about 20 minutes, Beckham himself walked in! The whole pub tried not to stare but it was so amazing. The team didn’t go party-crazy. The boys just had beer and pub snacks. David only drank mineral water. He’s much taller than I thought. Becks signed autographs for anyone who asked. After a couple shots, I finally mustered the courage to talk to David. I said I thought he was the best player on earth next to Ryan Giggs. Becks perked up, “Yeah, I’m a huge fan of Giggsy. He’s one of my favorites.” I asked for a picture and he had one of the players hold the camera! Can I just say he smelled so nice! Really! I hugged him so tight and he didn’t mind at all. Everyone was in good spirits.
When I gave them their tab, David snatched it away from his mates. They argued with him a bit but he just looked at them and told them to hush up. I know your website likes tipping stories so you’ll love this: The tab was about $100 and Becks had just added a zero to $1,000! – A $900 tip! I had to ask him if it was correct. He just said, “It is. Is Giggs still your favorite player?” “Not anymore!” On a day where the Galaxy played for charity, David really meant it! I know it’s not a windfall of cash but the tidy sum helped me fix my ailing car and get a cavity filled so it meant a lot to me. What a magical evening! Thank you, David!

Steven, I don’t really think you know what you’re talking about. Have you actually followed Beckhams careers? No one who’s watched him play since his early days at United would call him injury prone. You can count on one hand the number of serious injuries he’s had. He had an absolute nasty year last year because he barely had a break from football so it was inevitable that he would pick up a knock at sometime. Don’t spout rubbish mate.

I call BS. I’ve been inside Joxer’s many a night and the background of that photo is not Joxers. Also, I’m fairly sure I’ve met most the bartenders and that is not one of them….

He’s a sexy player. I am his loyal adorer. Seems he has a personal account on a celeb&millionaire dating site called’. Is he single? He wanna hook up with hottie or cuttie?

AdamOctober 20, 2008 @ 11:53 am

I agree with Ben. I waited on Beckham at the Ivy and he was nice. He and his wife had a $150 tab, paid with a credit card, and left NO Tip! Now, I chalked it up to being English, and new to America, but since I am a fan I thought I’d shake his hand anyway. he looked at me and said, “Oh, there you are, thanks so much,” and handed me a wad of money.
I was stoked, thinking, “$300 may be more?”
Imagine my surprise when I opened my palm and found $31 in 1’s and 5’s.

The socce crazed busboy chortled, “He has no use for 1s and 5s.

whoops! I meant I agree with Scott!
Ben sounds like a freak. ;-P
