    If you are a waiter or waitress, listen up. The new trend seems to be over tipping the staff, and I mean OVER TIPPING! The latest story is about waitress who received a $1,000 tip from a customer ... on a $60 bill. Apparently the two had been chatting casually and she mentioned how her family was from Italy and she has studied art history, but has never been able to go there. On the receipt, the man wrote, “Your ticket to Italy. Enjoy!!” Even cooler – the man simply left the tip and quietly left the restaurant. So there you have it … there are still awesome people in the world. Photo Credit: Gettys Images

    Don't mess with Melissa McCarthy! Melissa, who's co-directing a comedy titled Tammy with her husband, fired an extra Monday because the woman was mistreating her child. According to TMZ, the extra brought along her kid -- who was about five years old -- for a daylong shoot by a lake in Wilmington, North Carolina. Witnesses say the young mom had been struggling with the child all morning, disrupting production several times by shouting at the child to "stop it" and quiet down. The last straw came when the mom jerked the child up in the air by the wrist -- in front of McCarthy. Melissa immediately tossed the extra, reportedly saying she wouldn't tolerate abuse on her set.
