We begin the week with Elly accidentally stiffing the bellhop because she tipped the cabby too much. Hmmm. I wonder if the reason the waitress ignored her is that the buzz is "The women from the puppetry thing think they can stuff you on the tip."

(Strip Number 819, Original Publication Date, 18 March 1985)

Panel 1: Having arrived at the hotel, an anxious and unsure Elly thanks the cab driver and fumbles through her purse so she can pay him.

Panel 2: She continues to fumble through her purse as the bell-hop takes her luggage to the front desk.

Panel 3: She then gets extra-apologetic and hopes the the peeved looking fellow doesn't mind a seventy-five cent tip.

Panel 4: Having noting that he's stormed off and left the bag at the front desk, she thought-bubbles that their must be an art to tipping.

Summary: We're probably staring down the barrel of an angry comment about how unreasonable doormen and waitresses are for expecting tips despite not serving Lynn adequately.
