After receiving bad service, a customer left this unexpected note and tip behind for his server…
Dear Patricia T,
I am attempting to show you more kindness and attention than you showed me today. I have also arranged to buy your meal during your shift with your manager as well. I was once a server and I know it sucks! I had crappy days and bad tippers but never gave attitude. It was always about guarding my words and actions and rising to the job I was hired to do. Take the money and buy a snickers.
“The black guy they sat in your section and you didn’t want to serve because the don’t tip”
Have you ever adjusted your service based on a stereotype?
Yea, this happened to my coworker tonight!
Another excuse for someone to use a cause to be cheap. This isn’t the first time this has happened…

Why do people feel the need to publicly post their receipts showing how incredibly ugly of a person they are?…
Rose’s post on Applebee’s page:
Two tips in one …. it doesn’t get better than this right Applebee’s? ?
Receipt Reads: Next time it would be nice if you asked what sides we wanted instead of just assuming. Your tip is due to my compassion NOT your service.
Receipt Total – $94.48
Receipt Tip – $10.52

Last night, we were unusually busy at work. I had a couple come in and sit in one of my booths right under one of the televisions. After getting their drinks they ordered their entrees. The woman asked if I could “hook her up” with extra extra extra onion on her steak for no charge. (I thought “No, I have to charge you for the things you eat… It’s my job”). This caused an argument between the two because he apparently doesn’t like when she has onion breath. Her boyfriend turned to me and asked if I would change the channel on the TV to the Cavs game. He then looked back at his girlfriend and said that if she got extra onion, he could watch the Cavs. She looked at me and said that he didn’t need it, but he asked me again to do it, very politely. So I changed it. Please keep in mind there were at least 8 other TVs in the restaurant playing the Cavs game that, if he had turned his head, he could have watched if I had not changed the channel. I never heard anything from them about the Cavs game for the rest of the night.
Their drinks were kept full, their meal came out hot and they told me their food was excellent. When they finished eating I gave them their check. She paid. After she signed they left very quickly. By the time I saw that the Cavs game that he” didn’t need” had taken all of my tip, the couple was gone. I just wanted to share this. I know it wouldn’t have been a huge tip or anything, but this just really got to me.
Sharon: A waitress I work with had this left for her today!
Note reads: To the waitress who had a table that had a tab of $117 and didn’t tip (AKA: Blond in Grey Shirt)
I waited tables for 5 years to help put myself through college, I have a great job now, I am married to a guy with a good job. However I remember what it’s like to get stiffed by a big table.
It’s not much but I hope it helps make up for that.
Apparently this is becoming the new thing to do when tipping…grow up kids!
In case you are clueless like me, there is a song out called “Tip Toeing In My Jordans”…it’s quite the jam. 😉
The artist of the song has recently responded to the tipping fad on Instagram…
