Quinzy: Silly Jesus: It's illegal to write on (deface) U.S. currency. I hope he's arrested.

No it's not. Only if you try and change the value of the note. So if you tried to change a 5 into a 50.

Otherwise, write on, cut up do what you will. You're fine.

Did not watch TFV, but I hope they gave the pizza guy the tip in cash. If it was on a credit card slip he'll lose his whole paycheck for the taxes.


REMEMBER: Tip people in cash whenever you can! Servers and pizza drivers are supposed to report how much they did in cash tips, doesn't mean they always do.

I delivered pizza a few years back, our system had some weird setup where you could not enter a tip larger than the amount of the bill. Only happened to me one time on a credit card and I was out the $5 or so that the tip was over the total of the order.

Pretty cool. Hopefully we get a few followup videos to this to see how the other $500 tips go.

I spent more than a few years in the service industry and I would have been flabbergasted if someone had given me $50, much less $500.

I was always baffled when I got tips disproportionately large to the bill. It made me feel better when customers explained to me why they gave me the extra money, because it's so easy to assume that it's a mistake. For example, a sweet little old lady left me a 23 dollar tip on a 20 dollar check. I saw the 20 sitting on the table and ran it back out to her as she was paying up front, and she was very grateful because she had forgotten that she had taken it out of her wallet.

If I saw $500 sitting for me as a tip without a note or a nod or an explanation, I'm honestly unsure what I would have done. I understand the idea that quiet/anonymous acts of kindness are preferable, and agree to a degree, but in this case I feel the video was appropriate.

A fool and his money are soon parted.


I leave it to you to figure out if I mean Aaron, who supposedly left a $50 tip for bad service, or for the people donating to this "cause".

Yeah, why pay taxes. Taxes are ghey.

Pocket Ninja: This would have possibly been a very nice and meaningful gesture if it had been something quietly and privately done, a touching meeting between strangers shared by them and held as a memory by those involved.

By producing it as a video, it turns into something gharish and self-serving, a bit of condescension in which people who otherwise cannot afford this sort of behavior select another person at random to serve as the foil by which they can seem like rich benefactors.

This would have been a much better story to read about than to have actually witnessed, in other words. Remember: not everything is better on video.


I think this is the first time I have ever witnessed a cynical Pocket Ninja post.

What happened, man? You used to be fun.

My dying wish is that you take $500 and buy me an anti-death pill.

My older brother is responsible for making me a good tipper, or at least as good as someone in my income bracket can be.
The basic quote I remember is "A few dollars won't worsen your day, but it could make their day a little better"

casual disregard:

It's okay to have a disagreement with events and possibly form a cynical thought as a result of it. He is, as far as I know, a human.

It also earned someone else a $500 dollar tip, so uhh that argument is invalid.

mytdawg: In this case I'll go with "It's the thought that counts".


Agreed. They just made many employees at that pizza place very happy, and in order to honor their dead relative. Compared to the usual stuff we hear about on a regular basis, I'll take it, bad taste or not.

Needs more verbal abuse from a pack of children, a la bus monitor video. Modifying the Warhol quote, "In the future, everyone will be tipped $500 to be the target of on-camera verbal abuse."

Perhaps the $95 health-uninsured tax can be used to fund this endeavor. Utilizing Facebook's facial recognition software, those targeted will then pay the IRS an interest-compounding penalty for not reporting the tip.

"I don't have a Facebook." you say. Soon you will be paying the $195 Don't Have a Facebook tax, which will earmarked to pay for the future I Have a DERAM Act, (Drudgery & Ennui for Real Americans and Mexicans), as you wait, slavishly, to be insulted surreptitiously by a pack of 10 year-olds with an iPhone.

Suddenly anonymous packs of bullying children are welcomed into restaurants and private homes alike, on the off-chance they'll be dispensing the benjamins.

Child murders will increase when emboldened kids think it all right to bully without then paying up the $500. Half of those polled see nothing wrong with the killing:

"Serves them right, thinking they could call him a fat fark--not only did they not tip him--they didn't even have a iPhone! The entitlement of these snowflakes! I must admit the perp's video of the bloodbath I downloaded was worth the $295 Kid Snuff Flick Tax."

The revenue will pour in.

Marijuana will still be illegal.

You're usually funnier. funny I think I misread, maybe.

My only comment on the whole thing is to point out how quick she was to grab the money from him and then hang on to it as tight as possible.

Might be the way I was raised to be humble and appreciative in life but if I were the waiter, and they did that, we would have had a 2-3 minute conversation along the lines of:

Customer: "We want to give you this...."

Me: "Really? No, come on. I can't accept that. Are you serious? Really? I can't. Come on...."

before I finally gave in and accepted it.

With her it was just "we want to give you this $500...." "MINE! *grabs money*
