It appears we need to have an honest, frank discussion about tip-shaming—an internet phenomenon wherein a server posts pics of crappy tips they’ve received. The latest recipient of tip-shaming was Drew Brees, who left $3 for a waitress at a California restaurant. She was later fired after making the receipt public.
Here is the evidence courtesy of The Dirty, a reputable website visited by only the finest of folks. /fart noises
Now, Drew Brees seems like a stand up guy, a guy who doesn’t stiff hard working Americans. Is it possible he’s cheap? Sure, I don’t know him personally, neither do most of you. But there’s a more logical explanation here right? One that doesn’t involve Drew Brees as the villain.
Simply put, Carissa probably sucks at her job, Carissa probably didn’t deserve a tip, Carissa was probably smoking out back when Drew’s kid wanted a refill on his Coke.
As a society we need to stop this nonsense of tip expectation after crappy service.
YOU DON’T DESERVE A GOOD TIP IF YOU SUCK AT YOUR JOB! GOT IT? GOT IT AMERICA?
Drew Brees responded on Twitter last night. The order was takeout. Carissa and The Dirty need to die in a fire.
In case anyone still cares about this report: I tipped $3 on a takeout order. Had we sat down it would have been 20%+ http://t.co/Ktfnnl10pX
