Psychic Night

I just realized I didn't really write about Wednesday night's Psychic Night. The event itself was great, but not nearly the turn-out we had last Wednesday for the Dinner, Dancing and Drinks event. But, it was fine. The psychic definitely did well, as there was a steady stream of people for readings. She actually turned away three people who walked in at midnight because she was tired and wanted to leave.

Now, there was a really fun group that was there for a good part of the evening. They really appreciated the fact that all they had to say was, "Another round, please" and I remembered what their drinks were. Not that extraordinary a feat, as far as I'm concerned, but they liked it. At one point, one of my brother's friends, J, who was there hanging out went out to smoke a cigarette, and when he came back, he looked like a kid who just saw Santa Claus. He asks, "Who's driving the (insert name of really expensive car here)?" I have no idea what the hell kind of car it is, but he told me it cost over $100,000. I almost think he said $130,000 or $150,000. Anyway, the guy who owns it says it's his, and he takes J back outside to look at it. It turns out they went for a drive and everything. Pretty nice of the guy, huh? I'm certain J came back sportin' a chub!

Well, this guy was with this really fun group. Toward the end of the evening, the group moved from the couch on the other side of the room to the bar. The guy says to me, "You've been doing an outstanding job all night!" I just said thanks and laughed it off. When it came time for us to close, they asked for their tab, and when I told the guy his total, he acted a little goofy. I assumed it was because he thought it was too much, but later I was told by a couple of girls that were sitting with them that he thought it wasn't enough. He just kept repeating the total out loud. Well, he goes ahead and signs it and gives it back, and I see he had put a $200 tip on the bill! I tried to talk him out of it (yes, I'm an idiot) but he insisted. He said, "Just give me a shot on the house!" Well, hell yeah, I can do that! Naturally, I split that tip, and all the others in the bucket, with my brother after we closed, so we both had a great night! Man, do I really have to go back to school in a few weeks? This job is definitely more fun, and most nights, more profitable!

Wow that's an awesome way to end the night. Generous people make up for all the rest of the tight wads in this world.
