The Tip

A blackjack dealer and a player with a thirteen count in his hand were arguing about whether or not it was appropriate to tip the dealer.

The player said, "When I get bad cards, it's not the dealer's fault. And, when I get good cards, the dealer obviously has nothing to do with it. So, why should I tip him?"

The dealer replied, "When you eat out, do you tip the waiter?"

"Yes, sure I do," responded the player.

"Well then, he serves you food, and I'm serving you cards. So you see, you should tip me."

"Okay, I see your point," agreed the player. "But, the waiter gives me what I ask for ... I'll take an eight."

  1. Unfortunately, the wait staff does not always give me what I ask for. Just last year this one lovely server asked me if there was anything else she could bring me. I told her, Yes, please! I would like her to bring me a man who wanted to cruise, who loved cats and had great health insurance.

    *sigh*

  8. That is an excellent point and if he doesn't get his 8, then it is just like a restuarant. We like that one. Take care.

  12. If I had dealer that would do that, I sure would give him a tip. And the better the service, the better I tip.

  14. Well now, this makes sense for back when I was a Blackjack dealer and no one was tipping! Guess I should have been giving them what they wanted!
