Larry, a grumpy old guy, expected a lot for his money. He tended to be a skimpy tipper and received skimpy service as a consequence. One day disgusted with the service, at the local diner, he left a single penny for a tip. The waitress stopped him before he could leave and told him she could tell a lot about a man by the size and placement of his tip. She told him that: He appreciated value He expected people to give 100% to their efforts He was a bachelor Larry was amazed and agreed that they where all true The waitress then replied: "and your Dad was a bachelor too".
