Humor: How to leave your server a tip when short on cash

See also

By now, many of us have heard about Ryan Bensen and Erica Manley leaving their server at the Twisted Fish Steakhouse in Seaside, Oregon an unusual tip. However, this is not the first time we have heard or even witnessed someone who is short on cash paying with an alternate form of payment. Sometimes an IOU is given and other times special favors are exchanged. When it comes to dealing with a server at a restaurant, you need to choose your alternate payment method carefully.

Some methods of payment are more accepted than others. Then there are those that are just plain illegal to give and receive. As much as a server could use the tip, I am sure he or she does not want to face jail time for a $10 tip. Before arranging to lay down that alternative form of tip, check with the server to make sure it is appropriate to give it.
