I just saw this on happyplace.com, and my jaw dropped from the sheer douchery (and idiocy) of it all.
Like, REALLY dude?
If you “can’t” afford to tip, why are you eating out???? Your discretionary spending covered the food your ass ate, but not the service?
I also particularly love how he justified the paragraph alignment, allowing for that *awesome* dramatic spacing between the words.
I just had to share this mess. Feel free to vent about past encounters with jerks while working in service here too.

Wow…I used to tend bar, and for the most part I loved it…but where do guys get the idea that shoving your tip down the front of my shirt is a good idea, let alone the first step to the seemingly endless stairway that leads into my pants?

Oh, wow! I didn’t realize we were already nominating people for the “Asshat of 2013” already. My vote goes to write-in #1. 🙂

LOL….that’s a pretty good way to ensure that you’ll never get decent service anywhere, ever.

omg. what a total douche. If you’re making enough money for that to legit effect you, you can afford to tip.
I had a lasy flip her shit on me becuase the lotto counter I worked at didn’t take debit. She told me a “better find a way to take it” becuase she doesn’t carry cash. I told her I don’t physically have a debit machine, and if she would like there is a cash machine just outside the store in the lobby. Literally like, 20 steps away. She told me off, called me a bitch, slut, fucking whore, etc. I was like.. well that escalated quickly. So I cancelled her tickets, becuase, fucked if I’m going to serve you when you talk to me like that. She came back and was screaming about how she was going to call my effing manager this, get my bitch ass fired etc. I told her that she was being refused service. I told her she can take her buisness elsewhere. Well, that certainly didn’t calm her down. She was like “you can’t do that!! THOSE ARE MY TICKETS! THOSE ARE MY NUMBERS!! RABBLE RABBLE RABBLE!!!” I was like. yes I can, and no, you didn’t pay for it so it’s “my” ticket actually. Well then she was full on “going to fucking kill me” so I told her to get away from my counter or I was going to call security (lol.. I don’t have security.. but the store that the counter was in had “loss prevention officers”) She didn’t even hear me, so I yelled to their customer service people to call security. Well, the LP officer had been there the whole time and seen most of what had happened. She came over and this psycho was like “oh gee whiz, no ma’am I just want my tickets golly gee” all innocent. The LP officer was like..”I saw everything..get out” So this psycho woman lost her shit on the LP officer. The called 2 big guys and escorted her off the property and she was banned from the store.
OVER A $2 LOTTERY TICKET
I had to write a big report and be escorted to my car for a while. I would have loved to have to police called and pressed charges.
She had crazy scabs all over her face. Maybe she was tweaking?

Ugh, that’s worse than the religious “tips” I used to get as a server. You could not pay me enough money to ever be a waitress again.

I worked at McDonalds when I was younger, and I really started to hate people in general. The entitlement is just disgusting! The worst was when a lady threw her coffee in my face for not taking her expired coupon. McDonald’s coffee is HOT: I had to be taken to the emergency room. Luckily it didn’t cause any permenant scars…
People are terrible to service workers.

A friend of mine got one once that said “TIP: You’d be kind of cute if you lost some weight.” The worst thing is, she really isn’t even big! Apparently the guy had been trying to hit on her, and she was having none of it.

The quickest way to find out someone’s character? Whether or not they tip and how much.
I always tip a minimum of 20%. I prefer to tip 25-30%. For holidays or other big events, 50 – 60% (that’s usually for things like pizza…not talking tipping on a $500 pizza here).
I pride myself on being good to others and rewarding decent or excellent service. I once dated a guy who, as I learned in the death throes of our relationship, did not tip. he paid by credit card and would always write “$0.00” in the tip section. I’d see him writing and assumed he was leaving a tip. I assume it was to show off for me but save his money. I found out when I found a receipt lying around from a time that we went out. I think we dated another few weeks or so (to be young and dumb) and then I dumped him.
Jerks. There’s no excuse for it other than that. A 20% tip at most diners would still probably be somewhere between $3 and $5. If you can’t afford a tip, you can’t afford to dine out.

@HappySky7: That’s insane. Kind of reminds me of that McDonalds video where the guy has to get a pipe after those two women because he checked to see if their money was real.

@misspeanut: Religious tips? Like, they wouldn’t leave you a monetary tip and chose to leave you the word of God?
