Bill Murray -- The Check's in the Mail

2/6/2010 2:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Bill Murray took a chauffeur on one helluva ride at the Sundance Film Festival last month when he didn't have enough cash to pay his fare -- but this story has a happy ending ... it just took a few days to develop.



It all went down on January 23rd, when Murray racked up a $200 tab for several hours of car service. When the driver tried to collect -- Murray handed over a credit card ... unfortunately, the driver only took cash.

Murray pulled out his wallet and forked over what he had -- $73 bucks -- and promised to send the rest in the mail ... hold your breath, right!?

But according to the driver, Bill delivered -- 'cause the producers of Murray's new movie sent a check to the guy for the remainder of the fare ... plus a $23 tip!

The end.

Lousy tip indeed! $200 tab = at least $40 tip. Come on people! 20%+

Don't listen to Oprah.

The driver should be grateful he got a tip. A tip is not obligatory. If you are not paid well enough go see your government representative and don't expect citizens to prop up your wage.

Last time I checked, they have ATM machines all over Utah. The driver should have parked Bill Murray in front of an ATM machine. Did Bill really think he could drive all over Park City, Utah all day long for $73.00. The real insult was the measley tip. After driving him for hours on end, he should have slipped the guy a benjamin.

Hey people, re-read the story. BILL didn't pay, the "producers of Murray's new movie sent a check to the guy for the remainder of the fare ... plus a $23 tip". The check came from a Dean Zanuck. What??? Murry too good to pay out of his own pocket? Another spoiled celebrity.

Cindy, re-read the story...AND click on the link to the check. It was for $150, not $100. He also didn't owe $73, he had already paid $73. He still owed $127. $150 minus $127 leaves a tip of $23. Don't you remember the "if a train leaves Chicago" scenarios in Jr. High math?

Now, having said that, $23 is a pretty crappy tip. Even for Utah.

That tip shoulda been twice that amount. Murray's a disgusting creepy drunk. This is just more proof. And those "producers" also have no class.
