The alliance partner and I were enjoying dinner at a local British pub a few nights ago, when our server arrived with a puzzled look on her face. Apparently, a patron had left her a tipless receipt that had a message on it that confused her.  After some prodding, she showed it to us. The text read…

“This is not the tip you’re looking for.”

She thought this was some kind of creepy come on. Fortunately for her, we’re well versed in the nerd arts. We explained that it was more likely a reference to the scene in “Star Wars” where Obi-Wan Kenobi used a Jedi mind trick to get by some Imperial Sand Troopers.

Jerkiness of not leaving a tip aside, how messed up is it to use the Force as a way to cheat someone out of money?

And also, how easy is it to fake one of those “A-Hole leaves message instead of a tip” news articles?

Even More Whatnot…
