Heidi and Spencer: Annoying AND Cheap

5/18/2008 3:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A source tells TMZ that Heidi Montag, Spencer Pratt and two friends ran up a $783 bill at an L.A. restaurant last night -- and when Spency paid the bill, he tipped a whopping 16 bucks!
Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt
A camera crew was with the vomit-inducing twosome at the time -- no surprise there -- and our source says that when they stopped filming, the server approached a producer from the show about the measly tip. The producer forked over $60 from his own pocket to cover Spencer's shortcomings.

Included on the bill were 12 shots of platinum Patron at $60 a pop. Drinking and simple arithmetic just don't mix.

Tip Generously Or Eat At Home, Cheapskates    

Yes it's true... Greedy selfish imbeciles (like "Tom") and these two pseudo-celebrities (who I have never even HEARD OF!) will grab ANY excuse to NOT compensate their server/ wait-person what they rightfully deserve.
Restaurants and bars only pay their help 1/2 of the MINIMUM wage, and a great deal of their service personnel rely and depend upon AT LEAST a decent 15% tip just to buy their groceries, baby formula, pay their rent, etc.
Churlish knaves like "Tom" need to live THAT life, so they understand what it is like to barely scrape by upon the so-called "generosity" of cheap, rude, often abusive misers who dare not tip a proper amount, for the sake of their own greed, after others have greeted you, followed your orders, kept you content, and then cleaned up after you and your filthy, noisy brood.
DO UNTO OTHERS AS YOU WOULD HAVE BE DONE TO YOU, dumbphucks!!!
And WHO in hell ("Etiquette"? you claim) says NOT to tip on ALCOHOL??? It IS served per your specious request, so what besides greed could possibly be your excuse NOT to tip on ANY kind of services rendered???
BAD KARMA to you lousy cheap tippers!!!

Comments by Eolra and Tom are exactly the same.
The wording suggests that Spencer is responding to TMZ,
and is trying to justify his $10 tip
SPENCER YOU ARE CHEAP
You can not justify a $10 tip on a $800. bill.
The server does not get the profit from the bottle, you jerk

I'm a server at a high end restaurant and though I don't watch that show, you can believe if they ever came into the restaurant where I work, I would love to spill red wine on them. They are immature snobs. freakin losers.

#26, I agree with you 100%, They shouldnt automatically assume they are getting a tip, or that a tip is expected and guaranteed. I also thing it was extremely rude and unacceptable of the server to approach a producer demanding a bigger tip. That server should have been fired for extremely unprofessional behaviour.

You are NOT supposed to tip on alcohol, unless that is all you are being served and then you usually leave a small tip. How extremely rude for a server to approach someone for a bigger tip!!! I am fairly generous with tips normally, but if they do a bad job, I leave them a bad tip. If the server walks by 5 times and fails to refill my water, yeah, they dont deserve a huge tip. If they do an awesome job I will leave a bigger tip, sometimes even 50%. Who knows, it could have been a crappy waiter. Probably was, considering they didnt even use proper etiquette.

Maybe they dropped a decimal place on the tip? $160 would have been just over 20%.

to all you cheap douches...

if you want to tip on etiquette and not the goodness of your heart, this is the proper etiquette...

10% on all booze
18% on all food

no, a server is not entitled to these percentages. however, a douche does not have a god given right to sit there and take up table time and money put of that hardworking americans pocket.

This isn't terribly newsworthy, Spencer has long had a 'rep' amongst his friends and on the set as being very, VERY cheap and is notorious for being somewhat of a mooch. He has a nickname in this regard but that's for other people to write.

with all do consideration that a camera
was there, it's doubtful that there intent
was to magnify their lack of generosity.

it's quite obvious when given the chance, these
2 are practicing the ethnic way of appreciation.
