Celebrity Cheapskates Show Us More Money Means Smaller Tips
The Miami New Times food blog, Short Order, recently published a list of the Top 10 worst celebrity tippers. These celebs may have cash-aplenty, but they are pretty stingy when it comes to tips. One of the worse tippers is par for the course.
There are many celebrity top 10 lists, and many dealing with the cheapness of the financially blessed. As much as we love our favorite celebrities, it’s hard to imagine our favorite TV dad or our favorite singer skimping out on a tip. Earlier this week, Kimberly Schlegel Whitman reminded us that tips are 90% of waitstaff income. Knowing how much restaurant staff depend on a good tip, it’s hard to swallow when wealthy celebrities make a fuss in a restaurant and don’t leave a tip for the waitstaff’s troubles.
