I think I would literally snap if this happened to me at work. I think I would black out and wake up in the back of a police car covered in blood.
Serving IS a real job. It’s not a great career for most people, but it’s a job. I pay my bills every month from waiting tables. I’m supporting myself solely from what I make as a waitress while figuring out what I want to do with my life and working for free as C.O.O of a start-up. I know tons of people who support families on the income they make from serving.
I sincerely hope this is a hoax, because this is just appalling. Servers in every state besides Oregon and Washington are paid sub-wages - LESS than minimum wage. Basically nothing after taxes. Tip your servers and tip them well, because that’s all they get paid. You’re welcome to eat at home if you don’t like it.
the bolded, esp. the bolded + italics
Holy shit, holy shit, holy shit, what an asshole. Poor Breanna :((((
I eat out sometimes and I never tip less than 20%, when I can I overtip as much as possible.
ETA: Also the receipt says 2:28 pm so this was a $130 lunch???
I heard this argument once from a woman who was outraged that her father would have to pay his employees the new municipal minimum wage, instead of the lower state minimum. (In one of the most expensive cities in the country.) “If they don’t like it, they should get a better job.” But then whom would your father employ, dear? If this server had a real job, this man would have no one to wait on him hand and foot. That wouldn’t bother me terribly, but I think it would put him out.
