how does cash by use of need work? Yeah, If you consumers receive the package, The driver went ask end users how to sign by use of The consignment order as well as gettings The capital from end users. If you he returns how to his organization, he without doubt has how to supply The signed shipping order along using The cash or else he'll be implicated. Upon receipt as to the shipping order and The cash, the organization's officials will match them against The original sales invoice and also history The receipt. a great deal that thing, The corporation went recognise which yes, you've indeed received the goods and also paid build up.

Andrea [Visitor]
Personal experience regarding Phil - my husband was an observer @ the 2010 ATT ProAm @ Pebble Beach this year. He walked the Saturday round with Phil's 4some and at the first tee when the observers were introduced to the players, Phil was the one person who didn't even say hello. He completely ignored the intro and walked away towards the cameras. I think the people who say he can be a real jerk are probably telling the truth. My husband walked the entire round and the other pro playing was very nice. Also, they ran into Johnny Miller who chatted with my husband and was very friendly! I think who a person is when there are no cameras is what you really get.

In response to: Golfer or not, Rush Limbaugh's cowardly show hurts America

Tod Kirk [Visitor]
People lets show more intelligence than just your political point of view. Rush does give his one-sided conservative view on most issues, it is his show after all. But you talk like he is the anti-christ!. Be real, he is no different at all than Keith olberman or Rachel Maddow, Randi Rhodes, etc. Rush is the right wing conservative view. The 3 mentioned afore are the liberal left wing. Truth be told, the majority of Americans don't like the drastic agenda of either side. Rush is no worse than the left wing media, and vice versa. More Americans are closer to the center, than the left wing or the right wing. If you dont like their rhetoric, tune them out. Dont villify Rush just because he has made himself a huge sucess financially. It means in our American way of doing business, he has been more sucessful than most. Most people know Rush is going to espouse the right wing agenda only. Dont whine about it, just tune him out if it bothers you. and to those who posted that if your middle class or upper middle class and white you are against Obama and cordial to Rush"s view. Not true! It was white middle class Americans, Like Myself, who elected Mr. Obama. He has strayed from the center line, or even far from the left of center line that he espoused and many of us believed that he would follow. He is no different than the worst traits of President Bush. Cramming his agenda through, regardless of how America or most Americans think. Trampling and side-stepping the Constitution, as did Pres. Bush, on force feeding their own personal agendas. They both became drunk with the enormous power that the office wields. Far right and far left beware. Your views , and some of the drastic views of the current administration have given birth to new and rising groups such as the tea party. Better take them seriously. Incumbents beware! Stray to far from that center line, and out you will go. Right wing, or left wing, you better stop forcing your agendas, and do whats right for most of us Americans and America. Although most of us centrists who voted for and elected Mr. Obama, dont think we will stand by and let you keep usurping the constitution. By the same token, dont think in November we will automatically switch and vote for Republicans either. We are watching intently, and will vote for the candidate that will truthfully work for Bipartisanship on all major issues. And most of all , the one who swears he will follow the Constitution and not side step it to promote their own radical agenda. It is not a Republican or a Democratic issue. It is an American issue!In every national race, vote for the best candidate. Dont vote strictly one party line or the other.

Typical comments from the cheapskates on here. First of all tiger has shown his true colors. He's a classless, self absorbed POS. The lack of tipping just reinforces that observation.

Lastly, you're going to pay an employers overhead one way or another. Sure, lets stop tipping and make the employer start paying a living wage. Guess what geniuses, the cost of the service they are providing will go up and you will be paying the tip (and possibly more) anyway. You can't get something for nothing.

But i forget. You cheapskate nickel rockets are above paying overhead. You're special in that way. The rest of us should continue to subsidize your cheapskate habits right?

What a bunch of nimrods!

Hey Susie,

still hot over Phil getting you kicked out for having a big mouth? Tiger never was seen as the family guy Phil is...I have no hate on for Tiger, but A jerk is as a jerk does and vice-versa...Phil signs autographs for hours and Tiger "the Buddist" defaces the Christian religion...how many times did he use "God" or Jesus Christ" in a derogatory way at the masters last week after a promise of change at his press conference?

Susie, have you ever met Phil? You sure seem to have a hatred for him. You're in love with Tiger and his bad behavior... and you make excuses for him because his daddy died. And you make the RIDICULOUS statement that Tiger is 1000 times better than Phil. How did you figure that? Has he won 1000 times more tournaments? Does he use 1000 times less strokes? Does he hit the ball 1000 times further? Basically, Susie...you're an idiot. To say that Mickelson is a jerk and he proves that to be true because he smiles...it just shows who the real jerk is--you.

His arrogant and egotisical. It doesnt matter that he has a family and seems to be a family guy. So does Tiger and he was exposed. Tiger is a damaged little boy. All this stuff started after his father died. I feel sorry for him BUT he still is 1000 times the golfer that Mickelson ever hope to be. Mickelson is a jerk and he proves it with that big dumb smile of his. I cant stand him.

I can't believe that they would say stuff like this about Phil. He is so committed to his family and fans. He has always been a gentleman on and off the course. He's the only guy I know that always has a smile on his face and can really communicate with the fans. GEE - maybe he should be more like Tiger who CHEATS on his wife and really has the DOUBLE LIFE - Shame on you Tiger

Tipping should be abolished. Why on earth should the customer pay the employer's overhead. Let the employer finance his own employee's labor expense. The employer gets free labor and the cust has to foot the the bill for it by paying the employee's wage. Total BS.

Yoyoma, it's obvious that you have never toiled in the service industry. If you had, you would know that these people depend on tips to make a living. Most waitpeople don't even get minimum wage as a salary. They depend on those tips to make ends meet, and if they don't get stiffed, they still have to pay taxes on the tip they DIDN'T get.

I don't leave a good tip if the service is bad. But if service is good, or even adequate, I always leave a decent tip. If the service is outstanding, the tip is excellent as well. Maybe you're just a selfish soul who doesn't really care whether someone else can make a living, just as long as you get yours.

The best was when Amy was prego with baby #1 and he had his beeper. Well, it turns out she actually had contractions Saturday night and got some drugs to delay it. It isn't bad to delay it, but they why FIGJAM milked the beeper thing was ridiculous. It was Amy who delayed it and I am sure that she would want him to win and do everything she could to put it off, all that is fine but don't make such a big deal about it.

The point Tony made 3 years ago and was refuted by the Under Par was correct. What UP fails to see is the change in our culture where the heart on their sleeve evangelical Christian is no longer marginalized. For example, Jimmy Carter was a bit of an over the top Christian in his day but now that isn't even considered. For example, people can say they believe in creationism without being laughed out of the room.

The problem with these people, like UP, is that while they are more accepted now, it isn't enough, they will only be satisfied when everyone behaves just like them. Look at his response, criticizing everyone that does not fit into his ideal of a good life, i.e. Christian Conservatism. They have the whole thing worked out, because as soon as you criticize that particular behavior, they claim you are criticizing their religion and you are automatically the jerk. Or you can try the use Bible quotes against them and they will say you can't be a "Cut and Paste Evangelist" or that you can't take one line out of the Bible you have to read it all (although miraculously when they are doing it it is fine!)

rebel coach [Visitor]
Well looking at the list of comments it's easy to see a seperation of Tiger butt kissers and Phil haters. When my son was 10 we were at Harbourtown and just about to load the tram to go back to the car when he spotted Phil. He hollered Mr. Phil.. well phil was at the top of a large group of stairs and instead of waiting on my son to come to him, he came down and gave him his autograph.. What a asssssssss. I'm sure there are numerous accounts of Tiger doing the same...NOT. This rivalry is a media driven rivalry.. I'm not saying they love each other but I'd vitually say that either Tiger or Phil feel the need to spend time to have a sleep over with other players...They both have families..I haven't ever heard (other than the people above whose IQ wouldn't hit 10) say anything bad about Tiger or Phil. As for GQ wow imagine that putting Phil on the most hated while having a full page spread when Tiger was man of the year..Guess we know what camp they are in.

Phil Mickelson conducts himself with class on the course and represents his sport well. He acknowledges fans and from most accounts he treats tournament volunteers & others with courtesy. He provides people with an exciting brand of golf and I think most fans would agree he always gives it his all. Win or lose, he handles himself with grace. I'm yet to see him swear, throw a club, berate a spectator, curse a tournament official, or in any other way disrepect the game.

Compare him to a lot of others in major sports today and he looks pretty good.

He is a great ambassador for the game and I'm just not interested in this hear-say about his private life or how he's not really sincere. And whatever takes place in his private life is his own business and not ours.

He represents this great sport with honor and I don't think you can ask anymore than that.

who cares? it's ludicrous that tips are based on a percentage anyways. Just because I choose to eat the $10 burger should the next guy that eats the $30 steak receive better service? if you ask me how hard do wait staff actually work? it's a miracle if most of them even refill your $3 coke without being asked. if you ask me, most servers in restaurants do the very minimum and expect something extra for doing a crappy job? if food servers are able to pull in more income than other jobs such as policemen, teachers, nurses, firemen, etc(which is reality at some pricey, busy or swanky restaurants) than something is definitely wrong with the culture of "gratuity"

As another posting on this site suggests, golf is bankrupt in the charisma bank. If there were more incarnations of the Chi's Chi's, Trevino's, Player's of the past, a diminished Palmer wouldn't be necessary. But there just aren't.

I think big money is largely to blame for this.

Yesterday, here in Bangkok, I was a passenger in the car reserved for British Open winner Paul Lawrie for the Royal Trophy event here. He won one major tournament and that made his career.

I don't think golfers think much about careers anymore. They don't have to. They think about one good year or two and then they are set for life.

Professional golfers not that long ago were forced to think about careers and adopting a style that set them apart. Now they don't have to think that way at all.

As a writer living in Bangkok, I am covering the current Royal Trophy featuring Team Europe and Team Asia. Team Europe has only 4 players in the Official world Golf Rankings including Paul Lawrie (165) and Johan Edfors (171). So it seems the author's point is valid. Expanding the issue, we could ask, for all the top ranked players (including U. S. players) what are the obligations to support golf worldwide?

When in Rome....

Wherever you go, your subject to the local culture and ideas of how things work and are. They came to be after all due to the local status quo. Tiger and all these people who tip poor know it's beneath them and arn't proving anything by not doing it. Waitstaff in most staes make a few bucks an hour and rely on tips for 90 % of their income. Any of you supporting these idiots should be ashamed, or maybe it's time to work at a restaurant.

After all she'll be set for life financially and will be courted by the next crop of boy celebs. She will end her career amid candid upskirt shots of her lining up a putt at a pro-am event and will simply fade into obscurity....
