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.

Really the server was due about $160 in tip - not just $60. It was nice of the producer to fork over the money but the server still got short changed.

OK. I DON"T LIKE THESE TWO A MUCH AS THE NEXT PERSON.

BUT AGAIN. WHY ARE SERVERS GOING UP TO ANYONE TO COMPLAIN ABOUT THE TIP THEY ARE GETTING.

YES. I ALWAYS tip appropiately AS DICTATED BY PROPER guidlines. but i still think it's tacky and if you check with miss manners ( i won't mind if you take my idea tmz) you would see that it's tacky. A Tip used to de defined as graitutity. Now it's like we are automatically suppsoed to make up for the rest of their wage? SINCE WHEN? I DIDN'T GET THAT EMAIL.

AGAIN IF YOU DIDN'T WANT TO SCRAPE BY ON TIPS THEN DON'T ENTER INTO A PROFESSION WHERE YOUR WAGE IS ONLY 3.14 + tips AN HOUR AND THEN COMPLAIN WHEN SOMEONE DOESN'T TIP YOU WHAT YOU WANT. IS THAT THE NEW DAY AND AGE. A TIPPER CAN COMPLAIN TO A NEWS OUTLET ( term used SOOOO loosely) AND GUILT YOU INTO GIVING THEM A BETTER TIP? I WISH A SERVER WOULD. THAT'S ALL I'M SAYING. I WISH A SERVER WOULD.

it's truly amazing, especially in this town, how many
different interpretations there are with regards to tipping.

with all due consideration that 10% of the dreamers pursuing a
career actually make a living, the other 90% become wait staff.

so there will always be a discrepancy as to what type of gratuity should have
been left for " another " wannabe talentless person struggling to get noticed.....

let's set tihs straight for the record, the term,
TIP, stands for, TO INSURE PROMPTNESS.

when someone elects to go and to be SERVED,
one PAYS for attention to their specific needs.

these " pursuers " of wishful careers who CHOOSE to
become wait staff, then be patient and WAIT on others !

period;

it's self-explanatory.

you WAIT tentatively to
SERVE other people !

you are PAID for your
attention to service.

This is the person who stated her/his name to be Rosa Parks. That is so cliche using Rosa Parks it just goes to show how many people don't have B-lls to come out with a white name because I know ur white. How can I put it to where U can understand. It's not about trying to struggle to get noticed U ding bat. It's about making money to feed u and your family. So for those who think it's okay not to tip and think that servers shouldn't complain because they can't make a living off $3.14 hr, WEll... don't complain when somebody sticks their fingers all up in your food and spits in your soda and coffe for being such a poor tipper......How you like them apples ;) don't mess w/ da people serving ur food u might regret it someday. And if you can't afford to tip then stay at home because it ain't slave time B-tches. If I work i expect to get paid. I thought yall Folks woulda been able to figure it out Yall since yall act so hi and mighty. GUess yall need to go get yall GED because yall lacking sense.

PEACE OUT B-otches!!!

just me, slow down;

firstly, we weren't insinuating that it's appropriate NOT to
tip nor should the servant reserve the ability to complain.

trust they moan and whine to all the other wannabe's
working with them; just not to ownership or management.

but when you take the unwanted profession of someone pursuing the arts,
to take it upon themselves to ACT in retaliation, that's a CRIMINAL act.

so ain't nobody here " acting all high and mighty "
referencing that some actress needs to act like a waiter.

they are professional wait staff getting paid, if they wish to
admit it or not, make their livings SERVING other people.

Technically, you are not required to tip on the alcohol purchases at the same rate that you tip on food...granted he's still a cheap skate for tipping SO low, but 12 shots @ $60 a pop...that is pretty much the whole bill right there...should have been more than $16 tip, but certainly not worth getting into a tizzy about anyway.

Spencer probably thought he was tipping 20%...he just forgot that extra zero.

If they are so annoying and makes people sick. Then it makes me wonder why the paparazzi keeps snapping shots of them?? All they are doing is feeding their need to be in the spotlight or be in front of a camera somewhere. If you stopped takin shots of those two retards then nobody would have to endure the constant tabloid photos of them. They have done absolutely nothing special, but yet they get all of this attention from paps. Do you really think they are going to stop?? NO the paps have to stop putting them in the spotlight..

also, they should stop making up any excuses to leave a tip.....you gave a tip for the service...also its a hard and sometimes low-paying job to work in food service. I do not work in that industry however I have anough respect and consideration to leave a tip. Stop making excuses for two people whi have shown over and over again what small brains and will never have respect from the real world around them. Ladies and gentlemen, real examples of losers.

Hard and low paying? Pa-lease!

What is so hard about their job? Is it any more difficult then say painter houses? How about cleaning pools? Maybe working as a cashier or in the stock room at a grocery store?

And low paying? How can you say it is low paying when it is custom to leave 15% of the total bill. Average dining time is lets say a hour and a half. A waiter waits on lets say 5 tables in that hour and a half. If each table’s bill is $100 and each table leaves 15% that’s $75 an hour. How many people here make that kind of scratch?
