Maybe Scottie is confused and thinks he's in Europe, where the waitstaff are paid an actually semi-decent wage (at least better than $2.00/hour..)and you are supposed to leave only the change...

This sort of behavior explains the circumstances behind his 1st contract extension with the Bulls--wherein even Reinsdorf, after initially offering him what was, in hindsight, a lowball deal, actually warned Pip AGAINST signing it.

But Pip was so insecure, his basic attitude was "My God, I've got to sign something, and I've got to do it right now!!!".
And then he got locked into a below market contract that lasted years and years, a duration of time that allowed his resentment against Krause and JR to build up.
