I went to your bingo hall thursday night 9-24-09.
I won a great deal of money...which after going to your bingo for months and have won nothing. Anyways....when I won this money I was approached by a worker from the kitchen and a member and I was told that I was required to tip all persons 10%...that would be 130 bucks. No. No. No.....there are signs all over your bingo hall that say NO TIPPING!!!! And where do these members have the right to tell me that I ""HAVE"" to tip. Notice that I didn't put this is a form of a question.....Your kitchen help belongs in the kitchen.....your members belong wherever....but they do not belong in ""MY"" business.....I am thinking that the way the economy is, and all the scams that are going on now.......I might just air this to everyone that will listen. This was way above ""wrong"".
I do want to say that two of your workers and 3 players did tell me that I do not have to tip anyone anything and not to listen to them. So I tipped those people. I actually tipped the waitress'....both of them...because they are great at doing their jobs and always make me feel welcomed......I cannot say that about anyone else that works there....is this a scam....is this normal to approach all big winners and tell them that they are required to tip 10% of all their winnings? would really love to hear your answer on that one!!!!!!!
