    If I was the waitress he would have been wearing his leftovers out the door.

    as if this sort of assholishness is new and only accounts for bankers or other financial sector workers.

    The only reignition of this phony classwar nonsense is articles/blogs like these.

    Tips are meant as a reward for good service.

    When the service is poor there logically should be no tip as to leave any is to encourage poor job performance.

    But leaving no tip may lead the offending wait-person (wow, I'm just dripping PC!) to believe that it may have been an oversight.

    In this instance $1.33 may have been too generous. More like $0.01 would have been more appropriate. When service is poor the cost of the meal is irrelevant. It's the value of the worker's performance that's the issue.

    But please don't glue the penny to the table.

    i don't have any problem leaving a small tip if the server didn't do their job. writing something like "get a real job" is over the line imo.

    Which leaves one wondering if it was "bad service" or a rebuked advance?

    Maybe next time he comes in he'll get a nice big loogie in his salad.

    The Op link links to a HuffPo story. I thought it might be worth a giggle, so I checked it out...

    Here's the 'receipt'...
    [​IMG]
    That looks like a VERY goo photograph of the receipt. Not something the average cell phone would produce.

    here's the UPDATE:
    A... they don't know yet if it's real, but certainly could be.
    B... Breanna is going to be one popular waitress for a while
    C... Mr. 1% got the math wrong! :rofl:

    I rather suspect there won't be a next time for that restaurant from a customer who was that disgusted with the service, the food, or both.

    But, yes, that would be a typical liberal approach to something they cannot comprehend. And, they won't take the valuable advice either.
