I heard one day that George Clooney tips twice the bill, so I wanted to randomly tip something outrageous. One day I was at a bar and had maybe $20 in drinks. Feeling that this was the moment, I left $100 tip and walked out. I wrote on the check “This is not a mistake. Thank you so much for your great service! :)”. 9 months ago

I need a fortnight to save my money to actually leave the size tip i want. I want to give it to someone who has a grid for appreciating it… ballanced against i dont want it to be about me. 20 months ago
How I did it: There's not much to tell here!
Still looking. Nope, still haven’t found anyone worthy enough.
(P.S.: I always leave tips, since I spend 4 months every year with 4 waiters that just LOVE it when you tip them, but also love to curse when you don’t- thus, I always leave tips, just not “huge” ones) 20 months ago
I have been trying, but no waiter has been “worthy” enough to get this treat, up until today, that is. I will keep looking, though! 23 months ago
How I did it: What is the deal with tipping in our country? That's how waitpeople are making a living, and you ARE paying THEM for a service. OK, so my philosophy is if they're rude or nasty to you, it's absolutely fine to give a 0% tip -I've done that - but if they are effing AWESOME, it is also fine to give them a 500% tip - I've done that as well. Maybe I'm a jerk, but people shouldn't be rewarded for being @ss holes, and people should be rewarded for being good people. Put your money where your mouth is (drum, please!) and if you get waitpeople who are absolutely fabulous, TELL THEM in one of the ways that our society undestands most clearly: financially. (OK, I also will write thank you notes on napkins and tell them why they were so fabulous, and leave that with the tip that's way more than the entire meal was.) Seriously, try it: it is so worth it, and you're making the world a better place by spreading good feelings around. Read how I did it… 2 years ago
