What started as an innocent post to the Cracker Barrel Facebook Page from a guy named Brad, quickly spiraled out of control on early Tuesday morning.
Brad demanded answers for why his wife was fired from Cracker Barrel earlier this week and boy did he get them! Once someone responded with a smart ass comment it opened the door for thousands of other trolls to feed off of Brad’s post. And what happened next may be the best thing to ever happen in the history of Cracker Barrel Internet History!
This. This is the reason I work so much. This is why I cry in the shower. I STRUGGLE to put clothes on my daughter’s back and food in our bellies because of THIS. You, are the lowest of the low. Whenever you feel like it’s probably fine to not tip your server, that’s one more bill stacking up because they’re short on money. This is food for the week that our families will go without because you didn’t think it was necessary, even after asking for everything under the sun and receiving it free of charge, mind you. This is one less basic necessity my daughter needs because even TWO more dollars is too much for you. Every decision has a consequence. Servers are paid a base pay of $2-5/hr depending on the employer, so next time you don’t want to tip, regardless of the situation prior to receiving your bill, think about how much you would have to work that week off $2-5/hr to feed your family, not just you. Could you pay your bills based on that pay alone? Could you feed your family AND yourself? Because that’s what happens when you choose to not tip. Please, please tip your servers. Even if it was the worst service you’ve ever received. A 10% tip is a big enough slap in the face, this completely tore me apart. Don’t even bother walking into a restaurant if you can’t afford to tip. There’s a McDonald’s down the street if you’re that cheap.
Ben: Completely lost my appetite looking over to see this in your Petoskey, MI location. Wish you would enforce a no shirt, no shoes, no services policy – doesn’t health code require this?
And the man then claims he never alerted a manager or anything. He just waited to complain about it on Facebook…I smell free gift cards in Ben’s future!!
Here are our idiots of the day!
Nothing like using a death in the family to score free food at Olive Garden!
