Good Day, Bad Day
Overtipping, hogging credit
OOD DAY FOR: Overtipping, after a Kansas City grocery store worker received a $15,000 check in the mail from a recently deceased customer to thank her for making the extra effort. The worker, Eva Betts, has been at the store for more than a decade. (AP in USA Today)
BAD DAY FOR: Hogging credit, after a federal appeals court ruled that Sony Music has to pay Steve Popovich $5 million for leaving the logo of his record label, Cleveland International Records, off reissues of Meat Loaf’s wildly successful “Bat Out of Hell” album. Popovich signed Meat Loaf in 1977. “I worked too hard for them and made them too much money to get robbed now,” Popovich says. (AP in CNNMoney.com)
