The Bellboy

You may view me as a vulture. Maybe I am. I certainly do my share of scavenging. I doubt you view me as a friend, but I’ll smile and talk nice to you. Or am I just some hustling, punk kid with a little too much go? Yeah, you’re probably getting warmer with that one. However you view me, the simplicity of our interaction is indisputable: I will acquiesce to your request, and you will give me money.

Call the money whatever you want. Call it a tip, gratuity, your way of saying “thank you.” I don’t care what you call it. Put it in my hand, tell me if you need anything else, and have a nice day.
