SFGate:

Taylor Swift leaves a $500 tip

Taylor Swift stunned employees at a Philadelphia, Penn., diner last week when she handed them a $500 tip for agreeing to work extra hours for her.

The singer called ahead and asked staff at Ralph’s Italian Restaurant to keep the place open for her so she could grab a late bite – and they willingly agreed.

Swift, tour mates Austin Mahone and Ed Sheeran, her band members and entourage spent $800 on food and then she slapped down a huge tip before posing with waiters and waitresses for pictures.


We hear so many stories about asshole celebrities it’s nice to see one who remembers to be nice to the little people who work very hard for a lot less money. Always tip your food servers. (Otherwise they’ll spit in your dinner next time.)

This is an open thread.

    The doctor, after an examination, sighed and said, ‘I’ve got some bad news. You have cancer, and you’d best put your affairs in order.’ The woman was shocked, but managed to compose herself and walk into the waiting room where her daughter had been waiting.

    ‘Well, daughter, we women celebrate when things are good, and we celebrate when things don’t go so well. In this case, things aren’t well. I have cancer. So, let’s head to the club and have a martini.’

    After 3 or 4 martinis, the two were feeling a little less somber.

    There were some laughs and more martinis.They were eventually approached by some of the woman’s old friends, who were curious as to what the two were celebrating.. The woman told her friends they were drinking to her impending end, ‘I’ve been diagnosed
    with AIDS.’

    The friends were aghast, gave the woman their condolences and beat a hasty retreat.

    After the friends left, the woman’s daughter leaned over and whispered, ‘Momma, I thought you said you were dying of cancer, and you just told your friends you were dying of AIDS! Why did you do that?’

    ‘Because I don’t want any of those bitches sleeping with your father after I’m gone.’

    Ralph’s is a great place, but it’s hardly a diner. It’s an old school Italian restaurant that’s been open since 1903 or something. Anyway, great place. They’re a really nice bunch, I’m glad she treated them well.

    What a nice and decent thing to do! Go Taylor!

    The worse bunch I ever waited on were some union bosses, with all their fancy gold jewelry and expensive cars. They ran us ragged, kept us open two hours late, and left a lousy tip. I actually had to jump on the chef because as he was leaving, he was so mad he tried to key one of their cars.

      I thought the US was supposed to be the most racist country, just ask Jessie and Al, etc.

      It would probably be best to divide eastern and western Washington. Or maybe combine Washington and Oregon and then divide the resulting huge state down the middle north and south. In both states the insanely liberal population centers are in the west and the eastern parts of the states are more agricultural, different climate and more conservative/self reliant people who aren’t getting any representation. Also we need to change so the electoral Presidential votes are not winner take all. No one but foaming at the mouth liberals are getting any representation in our current system.

    My niece has pictures on her FB page of a concert she went to last night. I think I see a sign that says, “Eat your heart out, Klown”. She’s a big Taylor Swift fan, too.

    Another story I read said that the chef’s daughter is developmentally delayed and a huge Taylor Swift fan. Upon hearing that, Taylor handed them a couple tickets to the concert held the next night(?)

    She did a nice thing.

    • Klown says:

      I really don’t understand celebrities that seem to despise their fans. Taylor never fails to thank her fans whenever she is getting an award or appearing on a talk show.

      That’s smart business.
