Not The Check.

President Obama stopped for lunch yesterday in Rochester between his other stops in Upstate New York. It was a surprise visit and the people in this young, upscale part of town gave him a warm welcome.  He seemed like a nice-enough guy eating his lunch of cream of tomato, artichoke and cheese soup and 1/2 of a grilled cheese sandwich. Mr. Obama looks too thin without a suit and I would have suggested he eat both halves of the sandwich – but he probably wouldn’t listened.

The restaurant didn’t want to give him a check but he insisted and paid with his own credit card.  Lunch for his small group came to about $100-bucks including the mandatory 20% tip.  Mr. O was more than generous with an additional $30-gratuity.  So together, he tipped about $50 on an $85-dollar tab.

No wonder the country is broke.
