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.

HE ACTUALLY GAVE A GREAT TIP--you're not supposed to calculate the tip based on the LIQUOR bill, only the FOOD. The tip for the bartender should be SEPARATE. It takes only a few seconds to pour booze--why should that earn a 20% tip??? If the food portion was only $63, then a 20% tip would be $12.60. If Speidi left $16, they OVERTIPPED.

Heidi and Spencer are perhaps the two most important people in
our time. History will look back on them and compare them to
Catherin Hepburn and Spencer Tracy of the 1950's mixed in with a
dose of Steven Hawkins and Mother Teressa.

TO ALL WHO THINK YOU DON'T TIP ON ALCOHOL!!! CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP!!!!

Restaurants report a percentage (around 12%) of the gross sales for food and beverage to the IRS for their staff. This means that if you have a $200 food bill and $200 wine bill, the restaurant will report 12% of $400 or $48 as income to the server. In other words, the server has to pay tax on it whether you tip it or not. If the restaurants do not report it accurately, the restaurant and the wait staff get audited by the IRS.

Please don't get hung up on the 12%. It is just a reasonable example. I recommend tipping 10-15% on the alcohol and 15-20% on the food. 10% on the wine is perfectly acceptable. Whether to tip 10 or 15 percent would depend in large part on how helpful the server was in choosing the wine and serving it.

And not to mention the server has to tip out at the end of the night to the bus boy, cook etc.... So this server probably had to pay out of her own pocket after that lousy tip!!!

well what is there is to say than these two IDIOTS make me sick. They're repulsive, annoying and just plain idiots. The network seems to be soo desperate for ratings that they hire these idiot wannabe actors. Huge mistake. Spencer or whatever his name is, is a freeloader seeking attention but what he's doing is annoying the hell out of ppl. And what about Heidi she thinks she's the bomb when in fact there should be a stink bomb thrown to her idiot ass. Please get rid of these ppl by not following them and photographing them making them seem important when they're not. If you think ppl will miss them, they're truly mistaken. i sures hell wont and most certainly other ppl who actually have a life wont either. Rather than hear these two ignorant for human beings bicker about the stupidiest things these two idiots consider important, I would rather like to see how the network could help society who have real problems rather than have these two idiots complain about a stupid sex tape. PLEASE GET RID OF THEM ASAP.

$63.00 was total tax on $720 @.0875 = do the math!

Who in their right mind would sit in an establishment doing $60 shots but can't shell out a descent tip? If you can't afford it, go buy a bottle and serve your friggen self!!!

What a couple of LOOOOZERS!!!!

why can't people understand tipping? a tip for a $783 dinner is $117.45. you tip 15% of the bill for just good service. then go up to 20 - 25% for really great service. if you have a large group like these losers did and need a lot of attention tip 30% or more. you take up the servers whole night.......tip them good! ... you see how that disgusting looking spencer treats his own family, imagine how he treats servers!!
