Pretty Waitresses - in black
and
Handsome young men - all in black

I'm thinking, "Uh oh. This could be expensive."

The Matre-d- comes up to us and asks, "Do you want to sit HIGH or LOW?

WHAT the heck?

Thinking fast - I say, "Low". (High must mean we'd sit on one of those stools
at the bar.)

Sure enough - we are escorted to a "Low" table Surrounded by well dressed
folks sipping wine and beer.

Our Waiter Ted approaches. Hands us a menu.

I Hold up a Fake 50.00 Bill with DONALD TRUMPS smiling face on it
next to a real 1.00 bill. Ask, "Which do you want as a Tip? Donald or a REAL
dollar."

Ted took the 1.00

I Added up the Cheapest Meal
we could possibly order from their Menu. (Half of which is wine and beer.)

10.00 - Soup of the day is a cup of Chili
15.00 for an Appetizer
25.00 for the cheapest Fish dish
8.00 for Dessert
=====
=====
58.00 PLUS TIP

Yikes.

I Quickly explain - To Ted - "I am a vegetarian."

And order:

3.00 - baked potato - side dish
3.00 Broccoli - side
3.00 Coleslaw - side
===
===
9.00 PLUS Tip (Much better)

First I tipped TED Before the meal.

2nd - I tipped Mike - who brought butter for my baked potato on a
weird looking plate. (Mike Chose the 1.00 over THE DONALD too.)

3rd - I tipped Ted when he came back with our food.

Surprise Result:

THE MANAGER Rushed over to our table.

Apologized.

Explained that they have a SPECIAL MENU - Vegetarian Plate and Vegetarian Lasagna - that is NOT on the usual menu - because it is so seldom asked for.

Very Entertaining.

By Surprising two Waiters with My-CHOOSE-YOUR-TIP
Before-You-Bring-the-food - Golden Rule Tipping Strategy.

We attracted the Attention of the BOSS with only 3 bucks.

Thanks,
Glenn

Glenn, I always appreciate your posts.

I like the Trump dollar examples, and have used the same idea myself, when I was introduced to it by the "Ambassador of Enthusiasm", the late, great, Ira M. Hayes.

Back then, Reagan was president and it was early in his administration. People liked him or they didn't, but he could bring out a smile in just about anyone.

Not so with Trump.

I've never witnessed a country more divided, or angry.

Just before Christmas last year, I was standing in line at a grocery store waiting to check out.

I heard some squabbling behind me.

I turned around to see a see a guy with a Trump hat, "getting it on" with a couple of other guys, who were not happy about his hat. Just then I was hit from behind and shoved out of the way, by someone eager to jump into the action.

I left my basket full of groceries and exited quickly, passing an excited store manager. He was on the phone with the police.

Trump excites people. No doubt about it. At my age, I can't handle that much excitement.

Ron
