I'm betting the company with which the dude was "disgruntled" actually covered the entire bill. Gotta love company credit cards and travel expenses!

Great stories!

Oh yes... that was 100% the case. Sorry forgot to mention that part in my rambling. He was very honest that his company was flipping the bill. So we all drank and enjoyed ourselves. I can't remember the exact story (it was either 2000 or 2001), but something like he was upset about his travel arrangements or something.

5 years ago or so, I would go to a nearby chillis. The 1st 3 times I went I got tanked and tipped $20 each. From there on after, for some reason or another, the tab always came up as 3 tall draft. Like seriously, I'd drink all night (10-12 talls) and the tab was always 3 tall. The $15-20 tip never stopped.

I did this for well over a year (maybe 2), until I met my significant other and started to settle down.

That's despicable. No, seriously.

I mean, good deal for you, but that staff was basically stealing from the owner. They were giving away his beer and instead of collecting the cost from you, they were pocketing the money as tips. That's outright employee theft.

Ok, fine. If you guys just want to call each other cheapskates and venomously suggest etiquette, we can simply be done with this thread.
