A lot of people in the service industry don't
respect big tippers at all, they resent them
for the very reason the guy is making the
tip.



I assume this is what you thought every time you got a big tip while working in the service industry. It fits well with your persona.
One person's freedom is another person's annoying crap.

It's not about the tipped, it's about
the tipper. Remember the scene
in Goodfellahs where the Deniro
character is throwing hundred
dollar bills at the restaurant staff?
He's saying screw you, look what I
can do and you'll never do. You'll
never be where I am. He could care
less what they do with it or how
it helps them.



Basing an understanding of real people by watching films? In the future, will you be citing what Rex Harrison does and says in Dr. Doolittle? Or what DeNiro says and does in Analyze This?
Sometimes, people are just a bottomless mystery. And, after all, this is just a sh*tty little forum in the sun-less backwaters of the online world.

So you edify yourself by talking rather than listening.



I read posts and respond, isn't that
the internet equivalent of listening?

Actually, I based it on a what a friend
who hung around Mafia people told
me. He's a Jew, so they never really
accepted him, but in the 50's and
60's they let him hang around and
run stolen jewelry to pawn shops
for them. It never dawned on him
till years later they were using
him as a patsy.

Also, I've read the same thing in
books about wiseguys, I mentioned
Goodfellahs because my Jewish
friend was impressed that Scorcese
got it right in the movie. Sinatra
learned it from his Mafia friends
also. It's screw you money, that
you flash in the faces of people
beneath you.

incorrect. your edification program isn't working well

Meyer Lansky, Micky Cohen, Dutch Schulz and Bugsy Siegel were all Jews who were high up in the Mafia or well connected to it

from Wikipedia:


"The largely Jewish-American and Italian-American gang known as Murder, Inc. and Jewish mobsters such as Meyer Lansky, Mickey Cohen, Harold "Hooky" Rothman, Dutch Schultz, and Bugsy Siegel developed close ties with and gained significant influence within the Italian-American Mafia, eventually forming a loosely organized, mostly Jewish and Italian criminal syndicate known in the press as the "National Crime Syndicate." Jewish and Italian crime groups became increasingly interconnected in the 1920s and 1930s, as they often occupied the same neighborhoods and social statuses of the time. The two ethnic crime groups became especially close in New York City following the establishment of the close relationship between partners Lucky Luciano and Meyer Lansky and their subsequent elimination of many of the so-called "Mustache Pete", or the Sicilian-born gangsters that often refused to work with non-Italians and even non-Sicilians. The Cohen crime family of Los Angeles and Las Vegas was notably part of both the Jewish Mafia and Italian-American Mafia, and lines between the two ethnic criminal organizations often blurred throughout the 20th century. For decades after, Jewish-American mobsters would continue to work closely and at times compete with Italian-American organized crime.[5"

Possible. I run around a lot though. Where are you? AC?

Last time I met someone from this forum (excluding the spring fling) he turned out to be a scam artist so I probably will reserve meet n greets for the annual get together. Not sure if I am attending this year though

Especially with some AP's here adding me to their hit list. I might wind up taking a one way drive into the desert with a shovel
