That guy truly needs to catch a savage beating. I'm living on my pension and disability but still tip 20% or more. Probably because I used to work the restaurant circuit on the South Shore of Long Island as a teenager and knew what it was like to get stiffed by toffee-nosed tightwads.

Wouldn't it make much more sense to have a system where servers were paid for the full value of their work by their employer and tips were eliminated?

regardless, the guy left the statement 'get a real job' on the bill. Maybe this guy is saying that when he dines out, he'd rather cook his own food and serve himself. Since serving 'isn't a real job'. What a dumba$$...uses a credit card to pay, so now it's likely that everybody in the restaurant business is hip to who he is. He's bound to get better service now.

Actually, he didn't. The story is a hoax.

Here's the photoshopped receipt next to the actual receipt:

Let me just say that I speak from experience on this one. A lot of it. This gentleman is going to stroll into a Restaurant one day and be recognized by a server or bartender from a spot where he has dined and done this before. These establishments "share" workers in that, if you are good at what you do and need a job, you'll find work at what was once a rival restaurant because, you know what you are doing and you go about it in a professional manner. One of these professional waitpersons will notice him and that someone will more than likely have had a cocktail or two with the server who was left the $1.33. They'll have a bond and will only be a text message and a photo away, promises will be made and laughter will be shared and it will literally rain **** on this moron. Adding insult to injury, more than one person will be filming it.

You missed the fact that it was a hoax.

well the sentiment is believable even if the check is bogus.

Most Wall Street Bankers are trying to get in your pocket, rather than give something up.

On a slight tangent, I don't like how restaurants don't use carbon copy receipts. It seems that it would be very easy for them to modify the merchant copy without you having any credibility with your own copy since it is not a true copy of the original. Why did they stray away from that? I've never had any problems along those lines, and I wouldn't say that this sort of criminal behavior is particular to the restaurant business, because again, it has never happened to me, but clearly the potential is there. What would hold up in court?

I think that started because it allowed people on expense accounts to report larger tips for reimbursement than what they actually gave. Seriously! Maybe that's not the reason for it, but I know it's used that way. Or so I've heard.

The paper/signature process is a presumed protection device along the lines of a seat belt on an airliner. In the end, it's an irrelevant exercise.

Really? I always viewed it as a legally-binding contract that holds up in court. However, if your copy of the contract doesn't match theirs, and they have the signature, then how does that pan out? Your word against your own signature and what you supposedly agreed to?



Ever bought something with a credit/debit card that doesn't require your signature? How does amazon.com actually know that's you? Or the person that steals your wallet and heads to the nearest Best Buy. They sign for it...but did that stop anything?
