Just about everyone has worked at a restaurant or done something where tipping was an important part of your income. From the pizza delivery guy (who needs tips just to afford the gas to deliver your food) to the hostess who's been on her feet for 13 hours straight and needs her tips to keep the lights on at her house... Just about everyone's been there. And this story caught my attention in two ways. It made me feel sorry for the person who was serving the table, and it made me feel just as sorry for the person who did it because they apparently have no sense of decency. The lunch bill was for $133 and he left a $1.33 tip... Even if the service is terrible, that's just rude.
A very well-to-do person left a 1% tip at a restaurant in Northern California, and even went so far as to circle the word "Tip" on the receipt and write above it "Get a real job!" The reason he tipped 1%? Because, according to the news source, he's proud to be that well off and part of the 1% everyone talks about in the news these days.
Don't get me wrong, if the service is bad, a lesser tip might be in order... But to insult someone who's serving your meal? Just not right. I've been there and gone through that, and all I can say is, "Keep your chin up" to whoever drew the short straw and had to deal with the guy.
