TIP stands for - To Insure Promptness.
Now, it seems to me if a bartender is slammed, and you slip him a fat tip straight off, you will be remembered next time you go to the bar. Promptness is more likely, it you have done something To Insure it.
Insure yourself against being neglected.
Specifically, to secure against a loss by a contingent event, on certain stipulated conditions, or at a given rate or premium; to give or to take an insurance on or for; as, a merchant insures his ship or its cargo, or both, against the dangers of the sea; goods and buildings are insured against fire or water; persons are insured against sickness, accident, or death; and sometimes hazardous debts are insured.
Dude, it's like complaining that hot chicks get certain opportunities that ugly guys don't. And they get certain disadvantages as well. Smart people. All people. That's the way the world is.
As to the double or triple charging of the tip (in the ticket price, included in the drink bill, and at your whim) well, that's just plan old corporate greed. Ask Ticketmaster, where you will see similar practices. Or ask Enron, where it came to a head and popped.
Let's wait till after the event to judge to policies.
After all, I paid on a credit card, and the credit card company won't be giving any money to anybody, unless I still agree at the end of 30 days. That, my friends, is consumer protection.
And if anyone is still even reading this rambling THCinspired post, Rock on 'cause we are gonna party down!
