Actor Jeremy Piven, known for starring in a couple of movies that people might know about, seems to think that his work is worth well more than 20% of any meal ticket.
Piven was actually banned from the high-end sushi restaurant Nobu in Aspen, Colorado, for leaving the wait staff a signed DVD copy of his show Entourage instead of gratuity. Needless to say, the restaurant was pretty upset.
Stories have emerged of Britney racking up an over $200 ticket at a restaurant for her and her friends, but not even a penny was left as a tip. Another story reported by Business Insider tells of Spears dumping a pile of loose change at the feet of a valet and saying, “There’s your tip.”
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson
“The Rock” is essentially America’s Sweetheart at this point. He got his start as a wrestler, but now every home in America loves to see this loveable guy on screen.
However, one waiter reports that his tipping habits are not as nice. When Johnson wanted to eat at a restaurant before business hours to avoid fans, he only left a seven-dollar tip for a large meal when he was done eating. This isn’t acceptable, even if you didn’t inconvenience an entire business.
Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy once left a $0.20 tip for a bill of $61.56 at a burger restaurant in Philadelphia. The restaurant posted this disgrace on Facebook, angry from the encounter.
However, it turns out the real disgrace was the service at the restaurant. McCoy left a statement with NJ.com’s Eliot Shorr-Parks who tweeted that McCoy left such a poor tip because he had a poor experience. McCoy said, "I'll be honest like always. The tip was a statement." Is this still acceptable?
Not only has the famous Barbra Streisand become infamous among waiters for being demanding, but she is also known for not leaving the best tips.
Rumor has it that she once left a $10 tip for a meal that was $450. That is 2.2% gratuity! The standard is ten times more than that. It should have at least been a $90 tip.
Lea Michele isn’t known for being the nicest person. Many people did not like her character on Glee, but people in real life aren’t that keen of her either, especially waiters.
Michele is known for leaving 10% gratuity for most of her meals, which is 5% away from acceptable, and 10% away from customary. Come on, Lea! We want you to be nicer.
Much like Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen is also known for being cheap among Las Vegas restaurants.
In the same "Talking Sopranos" podcast episode where he mentioned Michael Jordan, Schirripa also described Pippen as being known as, ‘“No Tippin’ Pippen.”
Gwyneth Paltrow knows she has the beauty, but she does not claim to have the brains when it comes to math. She told Breitbart in 2016 about how helping her kids with math homework brings out the worst in her.
However, is this her excuse for not leaving good tips for waiters that we know she has the money for? Come on, Gwyn. Just use your phone like the rest of us - $50 x 0.20 = $10. There you go!
Katherine Heigl might have appeared in some of our favorite movies, but she’s definitely not the most popular actress in Hollywood.
Heigl is known for being high-maintenance at restaurants, and it has even been rumored that she is not good at leaving tips either. That’s not a good look.
