First, the tip is for the servers, not the owner of the people on the phone. Don’t let that effect their tip if they perform everything well at the reception.

I call and say that I am coming in to speak in person tomorrow. What time do you want me there. Don’t give him an option. Tell him you want the contract available to sign. Bring your earlier contracts to compare them.

Then go with your list of questions, write his answers below each one. Have him read it and initial each question so you can refer to it if something else changes or you have a dispute later.

Good luck!

If tip is included on the bill, don’t give them any extra. My mother did this at my brother’s rehearsal dinner. The bartender had a tip jar out for the open bar she was working. my mother told her to either remove the tip jar or only get the tips out of the jar, nothing extra. The gilr took it down and she got a much better tip than she ever would have with the tip jar.

If someone is adding tip in to the bill then that is good enough, esp when they have been this bad!
