Waiter Gets Fired After Complaining About Tip
The subject of tipping comes up pretty frequently on the show. If you go out, chances are you’re going to encounter a situation in which you’re expected to tip.
We can debate whether the industry standard is 15%, 18%, or 20%, but I think we can all agree that 10% is not a great tip. That’s what a server in Florida got and he wasn’t very happy about it. As reported by WPTV, the waiter was so incensed that he took a picture of the receipt and posted it to his Facebook page. His employer, Duffy’s Sports Grill, did not appreciate the post complaining about one of their customers, so they quickly fired the waiter in question, based on their policy about their employees not posting Duffy’s related on content on social media. I’ve seen these stories before where a server tries to publicly shame a customer, but I don’t remember a case in which the employer acted so swiftly or decisively.
