Second Drunken Mishap of the Year

Flying high on Sapphire and bass-heavy latin-arabic beats at Le Souk for my roommates' birthday bash, I closed the tab on our table, putting down what I thought would be a generous 20% tip. After all, we had a reserved table in the VIP area and there were plenty of guests we brought in.

I didn't realize how generous I was until we were in the cold, sobering air and I looked at my receipt; they had included a 20% gratuity! Yes! That means I bumped her tip up too 44%!

Now, it wouldn't have been bad if the bill was $100 or even $200 dollars, but this was a club, and the Grey Goose itself was $300, the Bombay Sapphire $250. I am so not joking. You figure out the rest; I need all my concentration to stop myself from banging my head against the wall.

No wonder the waitress was so grateful; I know I would be to any (and every) drunk big tipper.

The night was a blast and I wouldn't change a thing (err.. except maybe the tipping part). If so inclined, check out the debaucherous pictures here.

Holy Crap! That's a big-ass tip, and an ass-load of pics... all hot, by the way. Hope you had a great time to justify the big grat!

Yeah, no wonder she was grateful! And I'm pissed at you because now I can't make any more jokes about Chinese people being cheap. ;)

God if only I was the waitress serving you that night. Baby needs a new pair of shoes honey.
It's only money my dear and the universe works in mysterious ways. I'm sure that there's a well hung stud working his way up through the mix to find you even as I write this.

You have hot friends. Especially one in particular who, after seeing the pictures, now owns my heart.

You're holding out on us! I looked at the photos, but I didn't see any real debauchery! Come on! Let's see the rest! ;)
