A MAN decided not to tip a waiter purely because he looks like Blurbassist Alex James, it has emerged.
Tom Logan and his friend Norman Steele were served by Julian Cook in the Ciao! Italian restaurant in Peterborough.
Although the waiter was polite and attentive without being obtrusive, Logan decided that Cook’s resemblance to Alex James was sufficient reason to not leave a tip.
Logan said: “I know it wasn’t him and I like Blur too but something just stopped me.
“He’s probably just some student who’s probably living off his tips but he was the absolute image of Alex James. So, he must have been a knobhead to some degree.’”
Julian Cook added, “It happens all the time. The only way I’m ever getting a tip is if Alex James comes in here.”
