That's nice. These stories are always nice. Like the secret santa who gave out hundred dollar bills to people shopping.

What I'd like to know is, why don't they come knock on my door? I don't have money to shop. I can't get a job. I need money, too.

I think that amt was the first stim check. Guy probably didn't need the money and passed it on.

These stories show that having a social safety net is not necessary.

I wonder if there was a server that called in that day, or traded shifts with someone.

They were out with COVID. Joke's on them because in AMERICA we rely on the largess of rich customers to relieve employees who actually show up to work, not socialist handouts for slackers.

That is a sweet story.

FTFA:
David, came into her Estes Park eatery on Wednesday for some eggs, bacon, sausage and biscuits and gravy.

Of course, Dave may just be giving his money away before he has his heart attack

"It's $200 to me, but it's also $200 for my husband. It's also $200 for my daughters, for things that we needed to make it," Jayme Johnson said.

unless they all work there, no, it's just $200

At mu old job, I had to call ahead to hotel staff to give them an ETA for service calls. My main point of contact was a guy named Dave. Great guy. Easy to work with, always had cool old Vegas stories.

So I call Dave while I'm driving. Except in my haste/distraction, I dialed the wrong number. Wound up accidentally waking up some sleepy stoner guy. Said, "Hey Dave, it's Claude, just wanted to let you know I'm on my way."

What then transpired was a distracted phone call while driving where I got confused thinking Dave left his phone on the bench, and I was talking to his coworker, Kevin (also a really cool dude). Yet this poor stoner kept pleading with me that there wasn't any Dave there, while I kept insisting on asking when he'd be back, or if he could pass along the message to Dave.

Dude finally just got so upset that he bleated out, "Look! Dave's not here, man!"

It was at this point I realized I had the wrong phone number. I also realized this dude had sleepily yelled out that line, so I started laughing. Dude got pissed thinking I was a prank call all along and just whined at me, "Awww! Goddammit, maaaaaan!". Which made me laugh even harder, and he hung up.

Tipping is an age-old discussion on Fark.

I waited tables through high school and college because working the front of the house (if you hustle) pays-- but places that don't tip out to the bussers and kitchen staff are the worse.

At one place, another server's father came in about once a month who always tipped a hundred bucks. She, too, was working through college. And he would sit in her section if he could, but if she was full, he would tip the same to her colleagues. His appearance was a little like a lottery.

Nice people. Really. But I would learn she was demonstrating a work-ethic to her father (despite the extraordinary incentive) to work as well as study, and I came to recognize tipping is a function of status.

So, if you're of an average? If you're not so fortunate to work in a place in which patrons are demonstrating their status? What is it?

My favorite reference is Tarantino's opening scene to Reservoir Dogs and the comments made to how a waitress and secretary are the few ubiquitous jobs available for a single-mom to live independently. And Mr. Pink, who was agnostic about it, is the only gangster to survive the story.

Tarantino was raised by a single-mom and sufficiently liberated to date Black men and the perspective it gave him was enormous.

No. it's largesse. Take your 'I'm a Dumbass, Make Me Feel Good About Myself Dictionary' and stick it up your LARGE ASS like Tom Brady is doing to the Packers.

It would be nice to get a few hundie unexpectedly, but tipping culture is really weird once you're away from it for a bit.

article: 'She said David lives in the area, but it was only the second time he's been to the restaurant.'

In the 10 years they've been open, and she still recognized him that 2nd time.

If you are at least 55, that album track would probably be the first thing you think of (like me - and i can recite it verbatim). Between 40 and 55, it's Space Odyssey. 20-40 it's either Matthews or Klein.

I thought a lot of these stories were scams. The bank ends up declining the transaction and the customer gets a free meal.

Man, it would suck to be one of the employees who was off that day. I was off for a day I (kind of) regret missing, but for a far different reason...

In Phx around '97, they had people going around and robbing restaurants. They'd get an employee leaving after close, male someone open back up, and would rob everyone and lock them in the walk-in. I knocked half of my front teeth out in a drinking accident and took a few days off. One of those nights these people showed up, but nobody let the employee back in, so nobody got robbed that night. They were able to get a good enough description of the car and the perps that this was the end of their little crime spree.

I wish I'd been there, only because it would have been one of the few actually interesting things that happened at that Applebee's.

If he left outstanding outrageous tips before....You bet she recognized him that 2nd time.

Still should be more Cheech and Chong though
