A WOMEN took to Reddit to share how she days have the audacity to tip their poor service staff.
In a post on the website, which she cannot remain anonymous, she insists she has never been subjected to such abuse.
“I met a guy on a dating app. We started meeting and arranged for a first date,” she wrote.
“So far, everything has been going well. We sat down and started making small talk.
“Then our waiter came and asked what we wanted to order.
“I said what I wanted and gestured to him to let him order. He ordered and then pulled what I thought was about $15 on the table.
“He said, ‘Here’s your tip. Every time you screw up, I take some away.”
“The waitress looked immediately worried. I sat there a bit shocked, but mostly embarrassed because I wasn’t expecting this.”
“She must be new because she spilled some drinks on our table, gave us the wrong food, and overall seemed lost,” she continued.
“He took away $13 dollars.
“I asked him why he thought it was a good idea to give money this way. He said it was the best way to ensure ‘good service’.”
“When I disagreed, he said, ‘You’re not always nice to these people, it’s not a respectable job.”
“Then I decided I didn’t want anything to do with him, and called the waiter over to get the bill.
“I smashed the $20 bill into her hand and got up to pay for my meal.
“That night, he asked to know why I had tipped her despite her poor service.
“And I told him it was because he decided to treat her livelihood as a game.
“He said because of me she would never improve her service and that I was just a people pleaser.
“I blocked him, but I was wondering if it was really the right thing to do.”
The majority of comments left on the post agreed that she was not at fault for tipping the waitress even though she frequently made mistakes throughout the night.
One said: “Yes, that’s a big deal-breaker.
“If someone shows them as big as a hole**, I’ll walk away immediately.”
One second wrote: “I wish that $20 in her hand wasn’t the only thing you slapped that night.
“It’s good for you to do the right thing.”
