In another example of offering something in lieu of a tip, this customer decided to give their server some career advice. Talk about unsolicited advice! Certainly, the last thing a customer wants (along with no tip) is advice about their low-paying job.
It’s difficult to understand the motives behind the “advice” and whether it was meant to be rude or as some sort of genuine guidance. But motives aside, this move came across as inappropriate and impolite.
Not So Big Tipper
It can be a very fun day for restaurant staff when a celebrity comes to dine unless they are rude. It looks like Jackie Chan was at this particular restaurant, and, sorry Chan fans, but he was a bit rude.
Maybe the server did not know who was at the table, but the teeny tiny tip left by Chan was a little surprising. If this was really the famous action star) Jackie Chan really should be able to give a very generous tip to their server.
Kids Are Too Expensive?
Most everyone knows that having kids equals many added expenses, but using them as an excuse for not tipping? This seems pretty weak and just plain wrong. After all, if you can afford to go out to eat, why can’t you afford to tip too?
While this person probably didn’t want to offend their server, their excuse certainly would not make them feel any better about not receiving any tip at all. We all have expenses, but hopefully, you can budget a tip for your evening out!
A Cheap Move
Many people have been low on cash right before their paycheck. If you find yourself in this position, you might want to wait till you get your check before you head to a restaurant. Servers understand what it’s like to be strapped for cash, but that doesn’t mean you should take advantage of them.
A simple frowny face scribbled onto a receipt is little more than a mockery to a hardworking waiter or waitress. Next time this customer might want to review their budget before they order a meal!
Thanks For Your...Sympathy?
This ridiculous (or perhaps confused) customer decided to leave a sympathy card behind for their waiter. Did they want to mock their server? Did they sense they were “going through a difficult time?” Who really knows.
The only sympathy this server wanted was the sympathy for working in a demanding job with often lower wages. Clearly, the customer didn’t really care for the person waiting on them. Otherwise, they would have shown their generosity in the form of a tip.
