That's a tip, of a sort.

I realize the actual definition of the word "tip" includes information. That does not mean that a pamphlet for $40/month old people insurance is an appropriate substitute for cash.

Especially not when the waitress is thirty years too young to qualify for it. Assholes.

(What's with the picture, you ask? I don't know. I plugged 'cheap health insurance' into Google image search and that came up. I guess if you have cheap health insurance you can afford an Audi and Krista Allen? Hilarious.)

The picture made me laugh out loud. Hysterical.

Someone left you an ad in lieu of a tip - it didn't even have religious connotations or nothing?

Wow that's a first. :)

Maybe they were the insurance sales person. You'd think they'd realize you'd be more likely to call if they left you a hefty tip with it.

No, no religion on this one -- amazing I know!

Bunny, that's exactly what I think! Our restaurant wants us all to go eat at other places and leave these little "business cards" they gave us with our servers to try to increase business. One reason I haven't is because I don't have the money to be going out that often and tipping as well as I should, and I wouldn't dream of asking someone to come see me while leaving a crappy tip!

I got a coupon that would expire in 2 days for a BOGO fast food sandwich that I couldn't use either, given that I don't eat red meat. At least it was left with the pile of change I'd so nicely counted out for the teenagers' six separate cash checks plus a couple dollars.
