"YOU DIDN'T HAVE TO DO THAT!"
While eating at a downtown restaurant, my luncheon companion picked up the check. I insisted on leaving the tip. When the waiter came I handed him the tip and he said, "You didn't have to do that!"
Shocked, I said, "Yes, I did!"
He said, "You must be from out of town."
When he returned with the change for my companion, I said, "In all my years of eating in restaurants, I have never heard a waiter or waitress say I didn't have to do that."
He told me that he was just so surprised, because he isn't used to getting a generous tip.
