Pricey Grace, Sophie and Sophia,
I’m penning this letter on behalf of your superior waiter (Rachel). You bear in mind Rachel, don’t you? She’s the one who served you guys after which in return you left her just a little observe and an origami lotus flower. The rationale I’m penning this as a substitute of her is as a result of Rachel’s job most likely prohibits her from discussing on social media about what goes on at her restaurant. Or perhaps Rachel is solely a mature human being who doesn’t hassle sinking to your depths. Fortunate for you, I’m not prohibited from talking about it and I’m additionally 100% immature.
Enable me to refresh your reminiscence as to what you wrote in your observe:
Pricey Superior Waiter, (Rachel!)
We couldn’t go away tip as a result of we don’t have the funds for. Please besides (sic) this origami lotus as our condolences.
♥️, Grace, Sophie, Sophia
I’ll ignore the truth that you don’t know the distinction between “settle for and “besides” and simply chalk that as much as good ol’ customary stupidity. I additionally query your use of the phrase “condolences.” I don’t assume it means precisely what you assume it does. As well as, I want to level out that you simply added the phrase “good” to your observe when describing the tip which clearly implies that you recognize a folded up piece of paper with a tiny coronary heart drawn on prime of it’s something however tip.
Women, what the hell was the observe and origami for? You understand it isn’t going to assist Rachel pay a invoice and he or she definitely isn’t going to have the ability to tip out a portion of it to her busser. The one purpose you left the observe was to make yourselves really feel higher about stiffing a server who you claimed was “superior.” Rachel doesn’t need your observe. Actually, I enterprise to say that 99.9% of servers don’t need it.
Here’s what we do need: a tip. One thing that spends. And when you go right into a restaurant figuring out you don’t have the funds for to go away a tip, then please do your server a favor as quickly as you sit down. Inform your server you don’t plan on tipping. I do know, I do know, it takes loads of braveness to be this open and trustworthy together with your server, however isn’t it extra honest? Perhaps Rachel may have spent her time getting extra lemon wedges for one more desk as a substitute of in your low cost asses. Servers dwell on suggestions and when you’re not going to go away one, we should always have the choice to disregard the hell out of you. Certain, we’ll nonetheless carry your meals and fill your water (one time) and convey the examine, however we’d reasonably do this for somebody who may respect the service. Leaving an apologetic observe on the finish of your meal is cowardly and you recognize it, ladies.
Grace, Sophie and Sophia, I hope you see this. And I hope that somebody you recognize sees it too to allow them to inform all your associates how low cost you might be. No quantity of folder paper flowers or little drawn hearts goes to alter the truth that the three of you might be precisely the type of buyer that so many servers dislike. Develop up and tip. Or a minimum of be trustworthy together with your server. We don’t have time for this bullshit.
Mustard and mayo,
The Bitchy Waiter
