OK let me get this out of the way

How many people did she date and break up with during dinner?

Second, nice, decent thing to do since they stayed late just for her and her crew. Kudos

she handed them a $500 tip for agreeing to work extra hours for her.

Most people would do something similar under the circumstances. Surprise, sometimes famous people aren't total dicks.

This.
 In my experience MOST are not, but treating people like human beings doesn't make the tabloids.

Good on her. In more relevant news, I just used my pocket knife to pick a dried up blood blister out of my hand. Looks to be healing nicely. Scarring is not anticipated.

Just take a number and have a seat over there. There are  LOT of people she needs to date and dump ahead of you, so please be patient. She'll get around to you eventually.

Meh. She should have given them a percentage of her next song about tipping the waitstaff $500.

Beiber would have peed on them.
 
2013-07-29 09:03:50 AM
Granted, this is the nice (and right) thing to do, but it's not like she had to dig deep for that tip.  $1300?  Yeah, she makes more than that in an hour.
 
2013-07-29 09:05:45 AM
Rumor mill around town has her as a prude and shiatty in the sack. Like literally lay there cold and expect you to do all the work.

So as much as I would like to pee in her butt, I'm pretty sure even after she goes through several thousand datings and dumps that once it was finally my turn that it wouldn't be worth the wait.

According to Forbes she made $55,000,000 from January to June 2013. She makes $1300 about every 6 minutes (if my math is right). In the time she ate dinner (if she spent 90 minutes), she made $18,810.

You know, sort of like how we pretend we want to drop a large meteor on a chick.  That seems like that would kill somebody (or many people).
 
2013-07-29 09:24:44 AM
OK, um... Is it just me, or is that really not that much of a "tip"?

The employees are working extra hour.  If the tab was $800, that's a LOT of food for a restaurant, for a lot of people.  That means that you had to have a bunch of employees working OT, probably at close to minimum wage.  So, what... $50 a person, for working how long?  Yeah, not that big a deal.

There is no gift tax on the receiver, that tax is paid by donor.  Also if the gift is something other than cash (i.e. Elvis and his Cadillacs)  there is no tax as long as the item is used by the recipient for a period of time.

The funniest part is that you'll rarely if ever run into anyone remotely famous or some entertainment status playing the popular games. I mean you will on occasion, but its like getting hit by lightning. You will on the other hand run into a lot playing your off the wall most banal simple games.

It's almost like they play the stupid stuff to avoid contact with people.

It's 62.5% of the bill. Do you regularly pay that high a percent? Why shouldn't it be considered an unusual occurrence?

That's about $480 more than I would've guessed.

2013-07-29 09:32:25 AM
On the flip side of the coin, I once waited on T.I. and his entourage when I used to work at a restaurant in Times Square. Sat for three hours, ordered a couple of meals, a lot of drinks (none of which anyone "could taste the alcohol in") and left me $5.00 on $245.00.

Could have put the automatic gratuity on it, but was advised by a couple of fellow servers not to because it was considered an "insult" to do that to a famous person. So, yeah, my mistake for not slapping the auto grat. But still a crappy tip on a huge bill.

Do you think a lot of businessmen who are worth as much as her tip that much?

The bottoms on that suit are horrible. High waist suits should be outlawed. If you can't see a belly button the cut it way too high.
