Big Tips. [View all]

When I was young my mother had a rule: You tip 15 percent on the meal but don't include the tax. She could do the math in her head well into her 90s. When I got older I would do 15 percent on the total bill, just because I couldn't do the math.
Then I married my wife. She has a Harvard Phd but remembers being a waitress when she was a teenager. She can't do math but always insisted: 20 percent.
Lately we've been going to the local Mexican place and I order my usual martini. The young girl inevitably comes over later and says: The bartender made too much! and she pours another half drink out of the pitcher. She gets a big tip.
It's nice when someone brings you stuff.
You have to take care of your people!
