I'm not very familiar with how they handle the table game paperwork. All I know, is next time, I intend on going to the cashier window with one thousand dollar chip, and not with multiple ones at a time.

So, if someone tips a dollar, they're A OK, but if someone tips 45 cents, almost everyone will get all up in arms over it?  Give me a break.

Promark was absolutely right to lecture her in public.

I've worked for tips.  Getting stiffed is a fact of life.  Getting small tips is a fact of life.  And for every small one, she'll get a generous one.  You live with it, and move on.

You have to be a major idiot to scoff at 45 cents.  From what I've seen, the standard tip for a cocktail is a dollar.  So she got 45 percent of the standard.  It was a half-tip.  Half is infinitely better than nothing.

These people skip out on taxes too.  It's a cushy job, and no one should feel sorry for any of them.

But I emphasised that that wasn't my normal tip by saying "only" in my first post and I was labled a tightwad.

I'll tell you what, I've seen many garbage-hole bathrooms along the strip and many very clean ones.  If there's a porter keeping it clean, I'll tip him too.  I've noticed they used to have a tray for tips on the counter but they don't any more.  Too bad.

Bad bathrooms:

Planet Hollywoood-For some reason, all their bathrooms are small and the dudes piss on the toilet seat all the time.

Cosmopolitan-Same thing as PH

Good bathrooms:

Venetian, Pallazo, Wynn, Bellagio, Aria, suprising a real good bathroom is the one in the Forum Casino at Cesars Palace.  You have to take the escalator down but you leave the noisy casino and get a quiet, peaceful place where you can do your thing.

If you can't afford to tip at least 15% then you should not be taking ANY drinks. Most girls have to "tip out" with the kitchen or bar and you ended up costing her money basically

How do you tip 15% of something that is free?

 Let me get my two cent tip on this thread.

Tipping has gotten ridiculous.. I was cashing out recently at a poker room..Every cashier had a tip jar ! What ?

Just sitting there begging ?

Promark.. You meant well, but it was an insult to her.. Next time don't order a drink if you don't have enough to tip at least a buck..But she was out of line to make the wisecrack.

I would have calmly told the manager the story, let him decide if he wants you has a customer, or her as a waitress.

Don, it feels a little strange communicting with you in a different forum. 

Your answer is probably the best one of the bunch.  Yes, I just shouldn't have ordered the drink.  Like I said before, and slot players are really guilty of this, when gambling, we lose our train of thought.  I can't recall at which time I realized that I only had 45 cents (when I ordered the drink or when she arrived).

I did think of going to her manager, but when she appologized, that was good enough for me.  She learned her lesson, and later I realized I didn't handle the situation professionally either.

At the Flamingo sports book, they got ticket writers with tip jars.  Actually, it doesn't bother me that much.  BTW, if you are in the Flamingo Sports Book, playing the races or sports, you get free drinks NO MATTER HOW BIG OR LITTLE YOU BET.  No drink tickets, the waitress comes around and takes orders from everybody.  The reason the sports writers' tip jars don't bother me is because if I'm tipping the waitress, why not the writers too?  Remember, I appreciate a writer who moves the line along efficently without a lot of small talk as kick-off time is approaching.

If it's day time and there's no sporting events getting ready to start, I've seen Flamingo writers telling somebody who was going to make a futures bet on their team to win the Super Bowl to step aside and take a race bet of a horse race that was getting ready to start.  That's real service!

Oh indeed you did the right thing after she apologized. It was over.

I have a problem with tip jars.  The management thinks that people are making too much money then they cut back their salary. It winds up in management's pockets.

The old way was better, you could slip someone a little extra if their service was good. Now if you don't tip, even if you get bad service, everyone thinks you're a tightwad.

Personally, I don't care.. If I get terrible service. I might not tip at all

You would think any person with an ounce of common decency would check to see if they had an appropriate tip on them before ordering a drink.  And then to chase this girl down - your lucky someone witnessing that didn't slap you silly.  And then to start a thread because her actions upset you so much - wow - just wow.  I don't want to make assumptions but you were upset because you lost once again and took it out on her.
I wish you better luck in the future.

You are out of your mind.......no one deserves a public lecture in this situation.

ProMark, you are a cheap piece of garbage. That story just shows what a pathetic human being you are. You are not entitled to garbage and you have to tip. If you cant afford it then dont get the free drink you friggin loser

Jeez not another one. 
We have enough clowns trying to work the system here to get something for nothing. I got news for you buddy, this is a tipping town; Did they forget to mention that on the TV show you watched that glamorized this town to compel you to move here? 
It's people like you that ruin a good thing for the rest of us! 
Here's a tip if you MUST live here, Always keep a dollar in your pocket. If you don't have a dollar for a drink...then don't order anything!

How the hell do you 'think' you were the only room to tip the 5 bucks per day?  Did you interview every member of the cleaning staff or everyone staying in the hotel?

Sorry, I should have said
The way the room was cleaned day in and day out, We must have been the only people tipping 5 dollars a day.
Never have I seen a room so meticulously cleaned.
It had to be because of the tip, I refuse to believe the cleaning staff would take that much pride in there work.

This is a tipping town?  WHO THE HELL CARES?  A TIP IS EARNED, NOT A RIGHT.  AND FROM THE WAY YOU "SERVICE" PEOPLE HAVE ACTED, I WOULDN'T TIP MOST OF YOU.

PS, I HAVE FOUND THROUGH EXPERIENCE THAT SOME WHO WORK FOR TIPS ARE SOME OF THE TIGHTEST PEOPLE ON EARTH.  YES, THEY HAVE THEIR HANDS OUT, BUT WHEN IT'S THEIR TURN TO TIP, THEY REVERT TO TIGHTWADS.

This statement is flat out FALSE .. a lie!

 

Servers and bartenders, or dealers playing poker on their off day, are some of the biggest tippers there are because they understand their plight

 

You actually just said people who work for tips are tightwad tippers???????  Maybe you and your tightwad friends pro....... but not in the real world.

and one more note...........

 

Your a real brave person to run down and yell at a person who's clocked in at work too.

 

Hey pro.... i know your unemployed and all ...... but just imagine that if you had a job....... and were handcuffed because you got mouths to feed and cant lose your job.

 

Im willing to bet if you yelled and screamed at her while she wasnt clocked in, doing her job.......... she (or someone she knows) woulda whipped your monkey behind back to your chair in the back of the casino with your $0.45 to play penny slots........... REAL TALK

Promark is an ignorant piece of garbage and dont listen to anyone.  And these retards who defend him are equally dumb.  Just drop it people this has been going on for weeks and he still dont get it and continues to defend is actions.

that was the point I was trying to make to him, He chased her down and Yes she apologised (Not because she did him wrong)
She apologised to shut him up before a supervisor saw her and fired her as waitresses are a dime a dozen.

He was wrong, he kinda admitted it, Lets move on.

yeah i know $0.45 is better than nothing at all but if i were you i would also say to the waitress "i'm sorry couldn't tip you more this is all i have at this moment" she would understand and will appreciate it.
