Re: Tipping the guys at the marina?

The Marina Rule:

Big Boat, Big Tip
Small Boat, Small Tip
Sailboat, No Tip

Hiya Don! I have never ever eaten at a place where the furniture is bolted down. (Yes, I know...I'm a deprived child!)

If they waited on the tables that would be one thing.

What's worse, is I heard them interview a guy in Chicago who worked at a fast food place for 20 years and never got a raise. I'm sorry, but if you put up with that, you deserve what you get. I would have found a new job.

Some view money as a measuring stick of worth vis a vis ones production. You have to earn it.

Others use money as a surrogate for communicating or expressing emotion or acknowledgement; it's the basis of their day to day relationships. I really don't want to talk to you but I acknowledge your existence and your needs.

Still others view money as elemental, a fact of life. It should flow freely like water or food or any other resource.

Some people are hypocrites. They feel they should earn every penny, but once it's theirs, they like to spread it around, to family friends and people that do work for them. I guess that's why they earned it in the first place.

It's a personal thing. That's why money makes for such a good thread.

I only have one objection a few comments made earlier. That if some people would just stop tipping or start tipping, we could change the world. With all due respect; really?

Next thing you'll tell me is that my vote counts.
hmmmm i thought i was tipping the girl in the bikini because she is a girl in a bikini.

Re: Tipping the guys at the marina?

I worked at McD, for a week, they kept me in the back. I figured out, I could make a lot more money hustling tips at the fuel dock in a marina, with sailboats . Not really, I made more money commercial fishing and filleting tourist halibut, until I got my first license. My Great Grandmother always told me, "I never vote; it just encourages them."
