Two Bit Tip

The other night some guy tips 25 cents, and that's just something that happens that you have to take on the chin bc if you always turned it into a battle, you'd be yelling all night. But this guy takes it to the next level by winking -winking!- as if to say, "no, really, all that is for you!"

He comes back a few minutes later with his friend and proclaims, "I can't believe you recommended that ale! It was horrible!"

All bets are now off.

"Really? That's funny because I can't believe you tipped just twenty-five cents!" Then to his friend I say, "and then this guy winks at me as if it were some sort of goddamn prize!" Guy is visibly holding back his anger, but come on. Twenty five cents? He burbles something about do I expect to be tipped a dollar every time and maybe he was going to do a dollar the next time. Note to tippers, if that's what you're going to do, tip the dollar first time, then do the quarter. Or nothing at all. A quarter is pretty much a zinc coated "fuck you".

Yet just the other day you were talking about how craxy tipping is in this country and how you think it's ridiculous to get a buck just for opening a beer for someone.
