Great Moments in Hubris

16 Sep 2003 /

I had lunch with a couple of colleagues today at an Indian buffet. When the time came to divide the check, one of them announced as he tossed in his money, “I don’t tip at buffets.”

When this met with silence, he added, “And I had to ask for more water. That indicates a lack of attentiveness. So no tip.”

As we were leaving, the “inattentive” busboy came running up and handed Mr. I-Don’t-Tip-At-Buffets not one, but two cell phones, which he’d left behind at the table.
