    Truth be known you are just saying these things about our northern friends because they are making your wait at the early bird special longer right?

    Not sure about Ric. At my favorite steakhouse I have remarked "how many Canadians do I have to beat to get a table"? Any server will tell you their take home is markedly lower during snowbird season.

    You are just Jealous Because I get the Seniors discount at the Movies. Maybe I should look into Early Bird Special. But I am more Nocturnal and prefer to have late dinners. Besides by going to dinner later in the day the Crowd is gone and the chance of being mistaken as a Canuck who gets extra spit on their steak is much lower. Every where I go the waitress know I tip good but I don't over tip either. If I am in a working class bar I always tip a higher percentage because Drinks are Cheaper.

    And you thought spit-roasted was a cooking technique.

  5. You guys must deal with the wrong snowbirds. The ones in my area are from NY, NJ, Mass, Conn, etc and they tip just fine. I did work in a higher class joint but my tip average was 19-20%.

    Location location Location. It might be one state but there are a lot of differences. Traditional the North East goes the South East Coast of Florida to vacation and the Mid west and Canucks come to the Gulf Coast. My son has a degree in Hospitality management from FIU and lives and works on South Beach. His percentage share of the automatic 20% gratuity is more than his base Salary and he make big money before his gratuity perk.

    Just pull up your shorts, pull down your cap, hunch over, shuffle, smack your lips and use words like dadburn, you'll get your discount. Don't forget to wear an AARP t-shirt.
