2015’s NFL rushing touchdown king DeAngelo Williams is a rich man. Last year, he signed a 2-year, $4 million contract with the Steelers, including a $1,130,000 signing bonus. This contract followed the jaw-dropping $43 million deal he signed with the Panthers five years back.
So, if DeAngelo Williams walks into the restaurant you wait tables at, there’s a solid chance you’re going to get caked up, unless you shit like shit in his salad or something.
Welp, a waitress who had served DeAngelo and five of his friends, exposed him on social media for leaving a 75 CENT tip on a $129 bill, or a .0058% tip.
“Just now at work I had Deangelo Williams come in and I waited on while tending bar. His check was $128.25. He left me $129 with no tip but .75 cents. So there you go Stealers fans, your running back is cheap as s**t!!! Smh.”
Williams took to Twitter to defend his actions, claiming that the waitress made a slew of mistakes that warranted the snub.
DeAngelo claimed that he waited for his food for 1.5 hours, but the waitress said that he and his friends were only there for 45 minutes.
It’s impossible to decipher whose telling the whole truth here, but if they really just swapped out the shrimp from the salad into the pasta, leaving a shrimp tail in the salad, then fuck ’em. I know restaurant staffers deal with shitheads on a daily basis and rely on tips as primary form of payment, but you’re only entitled to someone’s money if you do your job correctly and/or correct your mistakes in a timely manner. Period. If you rely on tips to pay your bills, then don’t jeopardize that by cutting corners. You’re not entitled to anyone’s money, no matter how rich your customer is. This “Wah wah a rich person didn’t give me his money for sucking at my job” bullshit is far too prevalent nowadays and is the millennial version of crying for a participation trophy. Take some fucking accountability.
Give me a break, man. I tried…
