Soldier Says His Tip Is The Freedoms He Provided While Serving

This tip receipt left by a soldier was posted on Facebook yesterday by a Military Apparel Company, Ranger Up Military and MMA Apparel, stating “Don’t Be That Guy”…


I Refuse To Reward Low Goals And Lack Of Defined Career Path



I am a full time soldier with a college degree and countless hours/days/weeks of military training. If my check were boiled down hourly it would be roughly $30/hr. Which is exactly why I refuse to tip someone more than $10 for my half hour at a restaurant. If they have only two tables, they are making more than me, with zero training for their job. I tip that only hoping that they are serving while pursuing some other form of training or education. If I knew that waiting tables was the apex of their career ambition, I would only tip $2 and tell them to set better career goals.

If it makes me a bad person to refuse to reward low goals and lack of defined career path, so be it. I guess I am an asshole.

Yes John…you are an asshole. For you to judge a server by their career goals and assume they have no goals in life or their future careers, that makes you an asshole. For you to think that you are better or more important than a server, you are an asshole. You see John…anyone can be a soldier as well…but in order to be a good soldier you need to have respect for the people you are supposedly protecting and fighting for.
