Taylor Swift Shows Real Class and Tips Chef $500
Taylor Swift, the 23-year-old Country singing legend, was on hand with members of her entourage to enjoy some good cooking at Ralph’s Italian Restaurant in the city of brotherly love this week. Head Chef Shawn Gallo was tending to Swift and phoned his mother to inform her that the superstar was dining at the restaurant. As it turns out, Gallo has an autistic son who his mother tends while he is at work.
Both his mother and son enjoy Swift’s music and listen to it while he is at the restaurant.
Gallo reports that his mother begged him to get a photograph with the singer which he requested and Swift politely obliged. What was his surprise was that Swift gave him two tickets to her concert for the following night. If that wasn’t enough, she tipped him $500 when she paid for the bill.
Swift has repeatedly embodied the same adage that another elegant woman, Gwyneth Paltrow has lived, and that is: “Remember, above all: grace.” Perhaps the young Swift hasn’t had any luck with her choice of men, but no one can deny that the singer from Reading Pennsylvania isn’t one classy lady. Swift is currently one of the top three highest paid country singers and enjoys broad crossover appeal.
Here is a great list of the worst of the worst:
- Madonna – Doesn’t always leave a tip, when she does it’s a cheap one.
- Kelly Presten – Notoriously bad tipper. Most of the time she doesn’t leave a tip at all.
- Gwyneth Paltrow – Doesn’t leave a decent tip. It’s speculated she has trouble calculating the proper percentage.
- Barbra Streisand – Doesn’t always tip. When she does it’s $10 for a bill of over $450. She’s very high maintenance and demanding and no one ever wants to wait on her.
- Tobey Maguire – Doesn’t always leave a tip, and when he does it isn’t generous.
- Bill Cosby – Once left a $3 tip on a $350 order. He probably thinks the waitstaff needs to stop taking from others and get a real job.
- Ricki Lake – Once left a tip of $8.00 on a $142.44 bill. This after she let her young son run around the restaurant unattended – and he supposedly made a big mess.
- Bobby Brown – Rude to wait staff, lets his kids run amuk and left a $10 gratuity on a $250 restaurant tab.
- Sean Penn – He and three others had New Orleans waiters waiting on them hand and foot. The tip left on a $450 tab? Absolutely nothing. There are lots of instances of Sean Penn stiffing waitstaff. How many people do you think have spit in his food by now?
- Kirsten Dunst – According to one server she’s whiny and smells bad. Left nothing behind after racking up a $223 bill.
