It looks like Mary, in solidarity with the "working stiff," is wearing her own nametag today. It should say "MEDDLER" and not "MARY." And: how generous could yesterday's tip have possibly been? Way to self-congratulate yourself to readers, Mary. Not to mention that waitresses pool their tips. So if "Gina" pocketed Mary's twenty for herself, that's like, totally uncool.
"20 dollars down, $37,463.52 to go! No wonder I feel so much better!"
That must have been a heck of a tip. How do I get a job at Diner?
hmm gina is gonna expect that tip every time so i guess gina will smack mary up or blackmail her to get all her bills paid
Maybe the generous tip was along the lines of "Invest in a startup IPO" or "Get a second job" or "Get a gun and a mask and go rob a bank".I just don't see Mary waving cash around to cavalierly unless it's someone else's cash.Remember, Mary's "Tips" led Liza to quit her $50 and hour job as a nurse to work in the lucrative world of "Sales"
Hmmm -- a healthy salad and a cup of coffee, in a diner. Maybe $8.00 max, even in California.I might consider a $5.00 tip, on a feeling generous day. How many days of a nursing home bill would that cover?
Just how big of a tip our we talkin' about here??At least Mary has a long-range plan for getting Gina out of debt -hook her up with a certain eligible doctor. Now, if she can just convince Drew that he needs a piece of lemon pie...
Ask me about Pie (and my crippling debt)
My favorite "tip story" was the line from the "Beverly Hillbillies" (a very underrated comic show) when Banker Drysdale asks Jed if he wants to leave a tip for the staff in the restaurant they've just dined in.After literally scratching his head, Jed replied, "Plant your corn early".
I'm sorry but Moy is a functional idiot.
I'm going to leave a generous tip, not because the server is working but because I feel sorry for her. If someone waited on Mary and did not have a sob story, would Mary leave her usual 50 cents on a $10 tab?
Anonymous: Instead, Mary should tell Dr. Drew that she knows a certain waitress who has connections to a certain magazine that he adores. He'll be there faster than you can say Rip Taylor!
I anticipate Gina's marriage to Dr. Drew, Mary's acceptance of Dr. Jeff's proposal and Moy's departure in 2012, Mary's 80th birthday.
Oh dear,It is a sequel to an old storyline:Giella vs. the ponytail.He is losing. Again.
Gina has everything that a guy could possibly want in a woman.1) a high ponytail2) easy access to food (and lots of it!)3) bone-crushing debt4) a high ponytailQuicker than a blink (November-ish)we should see Drew over there salivating (and not at the complimentary table crackers if you catch my drift)
Mary is about be scammed big time. Gina's got no dead mother, she got no tuition bills. Gina knows a sucker when she sees one!
And thus begins Mary's road to financial ruin. Day after day she will return for a stale cup of coffee and a $100.00 tip until the pesky medical bills of her new friend are paid off!Hey Mary! I just got a quote for re-roofing my house and I feel a bit queezy after looking at all those numbers. I'm really shocked, because this will most certainly cut into my vacation budget. How about helping me out with a few thousand bucks? I mean, you DO appear to be loaded, girlfriend!
Mary would be ecstatic if Drew were to marry Gina. "Oh Jeff, how wonderful, we don't have to bring a gift! I once gave Gina a $5 tip!"
I'm afraid - or hopeful because it might be an interesting storyline - that Chester@12.41p might just have called it.Of course, if an "interesting" storyline is what we're actually looking for, we ain't gonna find it in the Worthiverse.
Can you imagine what would happen if Mary and Gina's mother -- who is very much alive -- bump into each other and Mary discovers that the woman is Gina's mother. Imagine all the thought bubbles and all the exclamation points and question marks (and let's not forget the shock lines waving from her face.)
"I'm glad I'm able to help" = "I love being rich"
Chester,That's what I was thinking just the same thing.
We know Mary gave Gina a generous monetary tip, but who did Gina give the tip of that ponytail to? And why does the Diner aisle look as narrow as an airplane aisle today? Good thing there are no huge thought bubbles blurping out of Mary's head today. No room!!
Please remember, this is a family friendly blog. Thank you.
I agree with Chester, and all the posters who agreed with Chester, that this is a scam. It was obvious the moment we saw Ted Confey sitting in a nearby booth in Diner. If only Mary had a son-in-law who is an ace detective! Of course, she COULD have one of those, if she would just accept one of Jeff's many proposals of marriage. OOH...neat tie-up of two stories: Mary marries Jeff (and makes the dreaded required concessions) and we find out Gina is Ted's sister, who has already spent the $50K from Adrian!
If only Mary had borrowed Jeff's Kindle, she could have sat there alone at the diner and not be disturbed, as she flipped thru the electronic pages of NANCY DREW BLOWS THE TIRES OF HER ROADSTER.The pressure of all of you agreeing with me is too much to handle...must...have...healthy...salad...with bacon bits...
I was ready to post my "Gina is a con artist in waitress garb" theory when I saw Chester's, etc.Possibly anything Mary could have said would have provoked Gina's hasty, teary exit from the table. Mary could have said, "Hello, dear. Isn't it a lovely day?" Upon Gina's return, she might have said, "My mother used to say that to me! And how I miss her! Her lengthy illness and subsequent expensive medical bills have caused me so much heartache and penury! I might never have a lovely day again (sniff, sniff, face touch)!"the word verification was "fusta," which sounds like a grifter code term for the scam Gina is planning to unleash on Mary, who is probably the only "mark" who's ever worn pearls to Diner!
