    I don't hide anything. Cash tips aren't taxed at banquet events.

    Not much to explain, they held off on firing me due to Christmas so they did it on New Years. I had 3 write ups and got a 4th for accidently handing a $200 check I cashed back to the customer instead of putting it in the drawer.

    Never lied about or exaggerated my money on any forum. Like I said banquet bartending is a great job and no one really realizes it.

    With this company my hourly wage is $13 an hour. On New year's eve I was running the bar in the VIP lounge of a big Gatsby Party.

    Most drinks are $7.50, so if someone gets one drink they usually put a $1.50 in my basket and keep the $11 after they give me a $20 bill.

    If they're buying all their friends drinks and rack up $65 on credit card they'll tip me $15 to $20 on that.

    Then there was these 100 free drink tickets that were handed out. Everyone of those I took I got a $1.50... Plus, they almost always tip on top of that. So, I probably averaged $2.25 for those 100 drinks plus my hourly wage and at least $1 a drink on the drinks without the hosted tickets. I showed up 6pm and left work at 2am serving drinks from 9pm to 1am at about a rate of 1 every minute.

    Easy money.

    Spent New Years volunteering for the city firefighter crisis response unit. We go to crime scenes and help counsel those in need.. whether it be one person or a family ... often times when someone codes *dies* the family members are understandably in shock. We've a CR van stocked with supplies.. from food, blankets, clothes, even pet supplies. Usually stay until the medical examiner releases the body for removal. Seen some bad s---. Pros outweigh the cons.

    Me on the right
