The Hook On… Tipping.

The worst tippers of ’em all?

Dead guys. Not only are they terrible conversationalists, all they have to offer is “wisdom from beyond the grave.” Like I’d ever have any use for “wisdom”…

Pharmaceutical reps pretty much suck too. What am I going to do with free samples of Viagra? I’ve been married for twenty years; I’m lucky the wife still tolerates me enough to share a bed with her, never mind anything else!

Stay thirsty, my friends….

About The Hook

Husband. Father. Bellman. Author of The Bellman Chronicles. Reader of comic books and observer and chronicler of the human condition. And to my wife's eternal dismay, a mere mortal and non-vampire. I'm often told I look like your uncle, cousin, etc. If I wore a hat, I'd hang it on a hat rack in my home in Niagara Falls, Canada. You can call me The Hook, everyone else does.

    And I guess dead pharmaceutical reps are absolutely the worst.

  2. @list of x ….well at least you could hack one of them down, “walking dead style”, without the risk of going to the jailhouse

    Pharmaceutical reps really are the worst. But they also occasionally bring me free food soooooo…

  4. I’m guessing a certain Pharm rep didn’t tip? or tipped you poorly? Maybe he was a dead guy posing as a pharm rep? LOL! I hope you have a better rest of the day… :-*

  5. I’ve never met a pharmaceutical rep, or a dead person. However, drunk people are really bad when you’re working behind a bar. Would it be possible to get a drunk, dead pharmaceutical rep?

    Pharmaceutical reps? Ye gods, didn’t they listen to what Hunter S. Thompson said about giving drugs to reptiles??!!

    ha! If you ever need a dead guy Hook, I’ll tell you a little secret as long as you promise not tell anyone. Dead guys often authorize use of their bodies for science and most of those go to medical schools for autopsy training for med students. Well, it would be too sad if you were a med student and Uncle Fred’s body ended up on your slab for autopsy – so the powers that be actually address that problem. There are temperature controlled tractor- trailers (unmarked) that travel the highways daily whose whole job is to haul dead guys from the east to the west and from the west to the east. I met one one day and he showed me his load – sure enough a trailer load of dead guys. Even when you’re dead, trucks are busy serving you. Ha!

    Just had to drop that in there as a conversation starter. Bwahahaha! Beer anyone?

    Couldn’t you sell the Viagra to some of your other more…promiscuous guests?

    My first thought when I saw the title is that this post was going to be about cow tipping. Then I thought, Jesus fuck Hollie you need to get off the prairie and into a city, pronto!

    Always thirsty. Good to see you posting. Bad tippers suck in whatever position they hold.

  11. pegoleg says:

    You’re looking at this the wrong way. Be happy to get the free samples of Viagra, which you can discreetly slip to the middle-aged guys who are there for some of the action detailed in your last hysterical post. They’ll be so grateful they’ll leave an enormous tip.

  12. Maybe the wife would be more inclined to let you in the bed with the Viagra? Although now I just read she’s into the Twilight stuff. Good God. Sorry buddy you don’t stand a chance.

    Looking forward to reading more of your blog!

    Hahaha! My husband is the worst tipper! That’s why I do all the tipping – but then he just gets mad at me for “throwing away” money that we don’t have. I hope his attitude changes when we actually do “have money.”
