    I agree with that. If it was that bad he deserved nothing. It's the people who leave less than four cents (usually zero cents) for really good service that get to me.

    Yeah. Some people really don't realize how much of a tip they should leave. I think that a lot of the time it's just absent-mindedness. Sometimes people will actually think they're leaving a good tip but leave a terrible one (like for that girl's birthday).

    I feel your pain because sometimes customers are just clueless as to how much money they should leave.

    especially if they're wearing the roller skates.

    I would have filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau after that.

    Report: Johnny Depp Leaves $4K Tip For Chicago Waiter

    by Access Hollywood    June 24, 2009

    CHICAGO, Ill. -- Johnny Depp has previously said that money isn't the key to happiness.

    But during a visit to a Chicago restaurant, the star certainly brought joy to one unsuspecting waiter with a reported sizable tip.

    Depp, his "Public Enemies" co-star Marion Cotillard, director Michael Mann, along with about a dozen other folks -- who were in Chicago last week for the premiere of their new gangster movie -- made a stop at Gibsons Steakhouse around 11:30 PM, according to the Chicago Sun Times.

    Once the bill came around 2:30 AM -- totaling up to a reported $4,400 -- Depp made sure the man who waited on the group into the late hours was well compensated for his time, as Mohammaed A. Sekhani reportedly received a $4,000 tip from the star.

    "He had visited our restaurant several times before while he was filming 'Public Enemies' and he promised me that he would return after the premiere," Sekhani told Radar Online.

    According to the longtime Gibsons waiter, Depp and his friends ordered items including shrimp cocktails, Clams Casino, as well as a few expensive bottles of wine.

    "He also ordered some $500 bottles of Italian wine and he was in good spirits throughout the evening chatting with Mr. Mann and Miss Cotillard," Sekhani added.

    Generous tip aside, Sekhani said he always enjoys waiting on the "Pirates of the Caribbean" star each time he visits Gibsons.

    "Because he had visited us before he calls me 'Mo' and I know exactly the way he likes to be treated. He may be one of the most famous actors in the world but he is a very 'humble guy' and a really cool dude," the waiter continued. "I have worked with a lot of stars like Sean Connery and Robert De Niro but Johnny Depp is my favorite He is a very soft spoken guy who is very charming and sweet -- when I wait for him he doesn't like to be too fussed over and is not in any way demanding."

    When contacted by Access Hollywood, a rep for Depp was not immediately available for comment on the story.

    I'd be in good spirits spending the evening with Miss Cotillard too.

    The step kids are very picky and do not eat meat. I usually end up buyin the grilled cheese sandwiches, corn dogs, etc...I tried to get Eric to try a piece of Sirloin steak from Chili's and he spit it out. Not that I'm cheap, but when they order, they usually order the cheapiest items off the menu.

    I went through this thread the last few days and had a god laugh with my date and our waitress last night about it. She said oh I could tell you some stories and she works at HuHot so it really can't be her fault because you are making your OWN combinations there, but it doesn't stop people from being rude.

    When we got their she said, hi my name is Deb and I'll be your waitress. I said Hi Deb, my name is Kristi and this is Tye and we will be your eating customers? Is that what we are? We were off to a good start. She kept our glasses full and checked on us and asked if she could clear our plates when we were done. Tye also tipped the cooks when we went through the line.

    I am an extremely picky eater, but I don't have a freakin cow about my meal if something is wrong. If it is really wrong I'll say something, but most often I'll just pick what I don't want out. It's not the end of the world.

    The fry lady was WOW. I never knew there was such a thing as perfect fries.

    It's a wonder some of you even go out to eat. You can't expect perfection from others, only from yourself when you are making your own food and I bet it's not perfect every time you make it either, whether to yourself or the others you are cooking for. No one is perfect and you can't expect servers and cooks to be either. Mistakes happen.

    I joke around with my servers and I tip well. One night out to eat the waiter forgot my ranch. Not that big of a deal. I asked for it and he apologized for not bringing it and jokingly I said awww man your tip is going downnnnnn. My friends laughed as did he and I told him I was just kidding, but he didn't forget anything the rest of the night. He was great and we left him a nice tip.

    During the Christmas holidays when my inlaws were in town we went out to eat at Red Robin. We all order our food and after a while they start bringing out all except mine. They were busy so we gave them some time. Eventually the manager comes around asking how the food is so we told him about my order. They finally bring my food and the waiter/server asks me if they got it right this time. I told I wouldn't know since I never got it the first time. They comp'd my meal so I guess it worked out ok. My brother in law paid so I'm not sure how much of a tip he left.
