FREAK Shots: An Irrational Tip

Here’s some nerd humor. This one comes to us from the Fail Blog; it’s titled “It’s Not That Your Service Was Irrational, Just Your Tip Amount”:

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

jjdaddyo

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

cjones

Right, Will! There are good reasons for such a tip: Maybe the service was substandard, maybe cash was left, too (by someone who didn't pick up the check), etc. Just go with the humor! Quite clever... -former waiter

Pi

No, it equals 30.0015926...

Will

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

Ian M

Yup, I agree. An extra $1 would have put the tip over 15%. The smile this brought to the waiter's face would have been worth far more than $1.00.

Bill

So the guy knows about pi but doesn't understand decimal placement?

kevin

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

Jasper

Small tip...

Platte Boy

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

RObger

What in the picture suggests a larger tip is warranted?

From the picture it's impossible to tell what the product or service was and what country it's from. Or maybe the service just sucked. That's more than enough of a tip for plenty of things in plenty of places.

Alan T.

Perhaps the service was transcendental.

Steve

Probably the service was imaginary.

Enter your name...

HAHA.. Probably an irritated customer who had really bad service..

Kevin

Should've tipped (e-1)*pi to get around 20%

Jan

Simply elegant n creative!

Mike

Could have been a buffet. Standard tipping there is 10%

CDC

I don't understand why we should tip...

I just don't get it...
