    That’s clever, except the tip amount strikes me as being rather small. I usually tip between 15-20%.

    Not just irrational, but only 12% or so assuming the check was about $25 before tax.

    If I was a server I wouldn’t care that it’s slightly small, it’s the idea that is great

    So, what is the “proper” tip amount? This is an age-old debate.

    Maybe the diner left additional cash as a tip, so as not to ruin the clever joke.
