Waiter: Oh, I see sir, the check!
Nigel: No, I always pay by credit card – I haven’t got any cheques!
Waiter: No, sir, I have all the checks – here’s yours!

(Nigel pays by credit card and starts to leave).

Waiter: Excuse me, sir – the gratuity?
Nigel: Pardon?
Waiter: A tip, please sir?

Waiter: No, sir, my day off is tomorrow.
Nigel: Oh, so you’ll be back at work on Wednesday?
Waiter: Yes, sir.
Nigel: Oh, good, then I’ll be back here for lunch.
Waiter: It’ll be my pleasure!
