Peyton Manning Gives Big Tip To Waiter, Then Waiter Gets Fired
Peyton Manning has been in the headlines all this week as he looks for a new job, but who would have thought that the generous tip Peyton left a waiter would ultimately cost the waiter his! According to msn.com, here’s what happened. Manning went to a restaurant in North Carolina and paid the $739 bill, which already included an 18% tip. Manning very generously added $200 to that tip.
I’m a pretty generous tipper, but I’m apparently no Peyton. But who is, right? According to my calculations (which always run the risk of being ridiculously off, I’m no math whiz), if you take the 18% gratuity off the original bill, the cost of the meal was about $600. That means Peyton left about a 50% tip. I should have been a football player…or a waiter for a football player!
