I agree!

I kept reading comments where people said they don't tip AT ALL for takeout orders. I always leave at least a buck & if it is delivery like pizza I tip a dollar per pizza

Brees is wrong. He should never have tipped at all.

WHO TIPS WHEN THEY PICKUP TAKEOUT!???

And that was how I was raised so as not to dignify gossip, slander, defamation...

Unfortunately, silence is misinterpreted as complicitness...

Hoda defends 'make-believe boyfriend' Drew Brees over $3 tip - KLG and Hoda


Koda Kotb taking about her make-beleive boyfriend. Too funny. She is on his side . See link.

Take-out. That part has been omitted on reports.Take out.
Meaning,you call in and someone answers. That send your order to the ktichen.
A waitstaff brings it out or somebody going to or from the kitchen.
You show up,usually a the bar. No one in particular takes your order.
The have it bagged for you.
You sign. Go home.

Yeah, $3.00 is a small amt.on a $77 bill.
still, what should he have left? $20.00 for take out.
Really? LOL. No.

Read the comments.Most people thought it was ok and have done the same. I leave something of that amt.that left for take-out too. Seated is something different.

I wish he would have left say, $6.00.That is nothing for him, but a nice tip for whoever is the lucky person to give his order , the bag of food to him. Many people probably worked on his order? Give everybody ?
Where does it stop?
LOL.

Not because we are fans, no, he has been very charitable with organizations of schools and things in New olreans.

I feel bad for him becaue the new thing is to show the reciept of someone well-known. Put them on blast . Not fair, ugly and really should be and the places of establishmen should fire those employees who do. Do you want anyone to know what you bought and when, and what restaurant and how much you spent? NO!!

Re: Drew Brees clears up tip controversy

I remember eating at a Mexican place on the Riverwalk in San Antonio that the service utterly sucked at.

I left them a tip - 1 shiny new penny in the bottom of my glass...

What a non-story. Of course, BSPN has been beating this dead horse all day. Lame.

That's what they do, take a non-story and beat it into the ground. Did I really need to see Riley Cooper all over my tv the last two days no, but thanks to ESPN that's all we get. As for Drew, it was take out. That waitress should have been lucky he even left that much

Re: Drew Brees clears up tip controversy

Thank goodness! I was really concerned that Drew Brees only tipped 3$ on a 70$ pick up...I think I'm gonna go put my head in the oven now.
