Case in point: Russian oil magnate Roman Abramovich, who is an economy unto himself, decided that lunch at the famed Nellos Restaurant in New Yorks Upper East Side would be a good time to spend more than most people make in a year.New Yorks Rumor has it that on top of the $7, included tip, Abramovich dropped an additional 5G for his servers. Pretty cool to think that you could start a college fund simply by waiting a table during the lunch rush.
Calculate both ways with the Melt and compare the results.
