When Waitress Receives Rude Note In Place Of Tip, She Vented About It On Facebook And The Internet Went Crazy
A waitress’ job is one of the most stressful jobs in the world. You don’t earn a lot of money as a waitress, but you have to work like a horse. You have to deal with rude people on a daily basis.
As a waitress, you often get accused of stealing money. You also do many demanding side jobs besides serving people, such as cleaning the restrooms and polishing the tableware.
The only thing waitresses love about their job is tips. It is the tips that help waitresses earn a living.
However, waitresses don’t get tipped every day. Some waitresses don’t even receive $1 in tips even though they worked hard to serve a customer the right way.
And some waitresses receive rude notes in the tip form. That happened to one waitress who had to serve a group of 8 people. This is what she got instead of a tip:
The poor waitress’ name who received this note is Jess Jones. She’s a 20-year-old student who earns some extra money by waiting tables at D’Jais Bar & Grill. Jess posted a photo of her “tip” on her Facebook page:
She wrote this description along the photo:
“Last night, I was stunned by this receipt that was left for me by a party of eight people, I would have preferred a ‘$0’ tip than an ‘LOL’ tip, but as a waitress, bad tips and harsh notes are all part of the job. Even though they did wait an hour to eat, they remained satisfied with filled drinks and proper notice that the kitchen was a bit busier than normal. I’ve worked in the service industry for five years and I take pride in providing great service to my customers.”
They could have tipped Jess at least $10 if they knew that N.J. waiters, like she, only earn $2.50 an hour.
We hope that Jess’ story and other stories alike will teach you to respect people who bring you food and drinks. It’s not a waiter’s fault if your food or drinks are delivered late, remember that.
