Most people are decent when it comes to tipping restaurant servers. After all, it’s their primary source of income at the job—so if you’re satisfied with your service, why wouldn’t you throw a nice tip their way?
Notice how we said most people.
One anonymous, garbage Facebook user recently bragged about the heartless game he and his wife played with an unsuspecting waitress:
“You put 5 singles out on the table at the beginning of dinner for the waiter/waitress to see,” one Facebook user wrote, as captured in a screenshot taken by Twitter user @pimpcey_. “(Don’t say anything to them) if they mess up, you take a dollar away, and so on. At the end of dinner, how ever (sic) much is left, is their tip.”
The Facebook user went on to detail how the waitress looked at the five $1 bills “as if she was confused.” (Well, yeah.)
“But she played her cards right, did a great job and received the whole 5 bucks,” the user wrote. “I did take away a dollar tho (sic) bec (sic) she forget (sic) the bread, but she bounced back and gave us extra.”
Unsurprisingly, the people of Twitter railed against the B.S. tipping strategy and the Facebook user, who wasn’t identified in the screenshot.
We’ll trust karma to play its part and punish the couple accordingly. That is, if the waitress didn’t already exact revenge.
Remember: There are real consequences to screwing with waiters.
