A restaurant in Philadelphia, PYT, recently posted on their Facebook page a photo of a receipt with a $0.20 tip left by Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy. The bill was for $61.56…
After receiving some backlash for posting the receipt, the owner then posted a status to explain his side of the story:
Les Bowen of The Philadelphia Daily News then shared McCoy’s side of the story via Twitter:
Asked LeSean McCoy about the restaurant receipt thing. “It’s bull****, man,” he said. Declined request to elaborate.

On McCoy receipt thing: my understanding is, he was really ticked about service. But org wishes he’d handled it differently. He understands — Les Bowen (@LesBowen) September 8, 2014
The restaurant has received some mixed reviews on the posting of the receipt. It probably wasn’t the most professional move on their part, but it’s refreshing to see an owner stand up for his employees…
Irresponsible move or well deserved?
