Saturday afternoon, Myron and I met some of his friends for a happy hour. The margaritas were on point (strawberry-mango blend, YUMMY!), the weather was nice out on the patio and since we were kicking it in the ghey area of town, the techno was pumping. When we got there, the bartender chick was taking drink orders as well as sending the food orders to the kitchen. The bus boys made the delivery to the table. Since happy hour was ALL day, (SCORE!) the dranks were flowing. When Myron and I got there, we immediately ordered drinks and food and dropped a couple of bucks in the tip jar. We received a big smile and a thank you from the red-headed bartender lady.
As the afternoon went on, the other ladies at the table are back and forth to the bar, ordering a drink at a time and I guess the red-headed bartender lady got annoyed with them. She told one of them when they went back to the bar for yet another 4 buck margarita, that tips were appreciated. LMAO!! The chick comes back to the table all angry black woman and proceeds to clown the bartender lady..calling her Pepper Anne and talking about she just killed her chance for a tip altogether with that statement. So the bartender lady got no tip at all in the end.
Meanwhile because I’d tipped a few bucks to start with for me and hubs, bartender lady was all smiles and goodness and light with us.
So while I admit that bartender lady was probably out-of-order for making an announcement trying to force someone to tip, I also felt that the chicks we were with were kind of lame for not dropping a buck or two into the tip jar especially when this chick was working the bar by herself as well as taking the food orders. We got our food and drinks very quickly too. Myron got up to get one of the chicks a drink and she gave him the business because he dropped the 50 cents in change she had from her 5 dollar bill in the tip jar! I don’t really like hanging with cheapo folks. If you can’t afford to leave a tip, then stay home.
So what’s your stance on tipping? Was I being too boo-jie?? LOL!!!
