Always nice to see a douche try to get out of the douche hole (har har har) by digging faster.

So, basically, you preemptively spit in salads? ...or do those in the service industry take cell phone pictures and share an "America's most wanted" bulletin of those who don't tip?

I'm well aware that it evens out. And you seem to know a lot about what I think and am like and know. Especially for a guy WHO KEEPS MISSING THE POINT THAT I WASN'T COMPLAINING ABOUT THE 50 CENT THING, BUT POINTING IT OUT AS PART OF A SET OF, IMHO, POINTLESS CHEAP BEHAVIORS.
your point is still ridiculous because it descends into "people try to save small amounts of money in situations that bother me. aren't they stupid and annoying?"

Un****ingbelievable. I'm seriously speechless. I don't think there is anything else to say except you are worthless scum and I feel sorry for you and anyone else unfortunate enough to encounter you.

Also there's a difference between gambling and paying for a cab. There is no alternative to gambling, a nice walk in Vegas in the summer in the middle of the night is > cab ride with crazed individual looking for the longest possible route between the Wynn and Bellagio.

In a crowded bar with a bartender that hates you, it can take a lot longer.

In a crowded bar with a bartender that likes you, it might take less.

Re: Wtf Cheap People

What do bartenders make on average at a decent bar/restaurant? $20+ an hour? Too much for a job that a monkey could do. This thread has inspired me to tip 50c instead of $1 per drink from now on.

Re: Wtf Cheap People

pretty bad penny pinch examples here. i remember from a long while ago, when i was on a boring holiday with my parents in germany, and i dropped 10 cents on the street. so she walked back to pick it up. i berated her, and a while later she bought some lame thing she didnt need and waas waaaaaaaaaaaay overpriced in some souvernir shop. now THAT is penny pinching at its best.

And that samsonite guy sounds like a big idiot. messing with someones food IS NOT COOL, YOU HEAR ME??? If i get proof someone just did it, after i ate it, i will 100% kick that person's ass. that **** just pisses me off so much. just do not do it.

another subject that recently annoyed me about the fish stands here, is that alot of them suck badly. the fish just tastes like ****. i mean you have a fish stand, which is a pretty damn lame job, at least make sure your fish does not tast like ****. like make it a challenge to get a bunch of good customers, get a good rep so you sell more. instead they just stand there with theyr dumb ass all day selling theyr junk that tasteslike ****, untill they dissapear after a while.

This was a fun multi-stage implosion by OP. It's always fun to watch people get more and more defensive on the internet to the point where they absolutely lose it.

The best part about the blow up is that there is a 100% chance that he is gonna come back and check on this thread later on. I can't imagine what kind of crazy douche the OP is if he can't handle himself to respond to criticism on the internet where he has all the time he needs to think out responses.

You chose to work for 2.13 an hour. If you don't like it don't be so stupid and useless to the point where you aren't qualified for a better job.

When you enter a restaurant or bar you enter a pact that you're going to order food and drink and pay for it. If people choose to leave you a tip for a job well done, it is up to them. If a bartender/server is a self-absorbed arrogant POS, I use my right to not leave them a cent to my advantage and show them what happens when they don't do their job. You apparently have a hard time conceptualizing that tips aren't mandatory, and that is why you are broke and a piece of ****.

I hope that the next time you spit in someones salad, they find it and come up to you and smash your teeth in. You are a true worthless scumbag.

I don't think you understand. He is an awesome bartender and customers go way out of their way just to be served by him. To tip him 50 cents when he takes the cap off of a beer is insulting given his level of competence and you will get a loogie in your salad for it as sweet payback.

Re: Wtf Cheap People

Veecee - I used to not have a problem with driving further to a non-service charge ATM. With gas prices now though, eff it.

Edit: This only applies to when I find myself needing cash + not knowing where the nearest ATM for my bank is.
