A furious waitress lashed out at a customer who gave her a 10% tip even after complimenting her for giving amazing service. Emma, who posted as @iheartveggiecorndogs on TikTok before deleting her account, had a major outburst on the platform as she believed she deserved much more than she received.
- The customer left a $10 tip on $100. While $10 doesn’t seem bad, Emma believes it was a bit measly given that she gave such good service. “I just want everyone to know that if you tip 10 percent, but before you tip 10 percent, you say, ‘oh my god, thank you so much, everything was great and we had such a great time, you made me feel great,’ and you suck my t*****s with praises, and then you tip me 10%?” she said in her video. “That’s so rude.”
- That wasn’t all she had to say. Emma continued by saying she wished the customers ‘smacked me across the mouth’ if they only planned to leave a 10% tip. !I would so much rather you stand up from your table and smack me across the mouth and say, ‘you are ugly, you are stupid, this was the worst service I have ever had,’ and then leave me $10 on $100,” she ranted. “I would so much rather that and respect it because you looked me in the eyes like a person, and you stood up to me. But no, if you actively tell me, ‘you did a great job’, and then you tip me 10% [I] want to fight you out back.”
- She actually got a lot of sympathy from commenters. Times are hard in 2022, and a lot of people thought Emma had a point. “Less than 20 percent is unacceptable in 2022. Respect your service workers,” one person commented. Another sarcastically added: “The good old verbal tip.” A third pointed out that Emma won’t even get all of that tip. “And that 10 percent gets divided by the bar and the busboy and sometimes the host.. yeah thanks also making 2.65 an hour,” they said.
- To be fair, waitresses should be paid far more for their time. US federal law said that tipped employees only have to be paid $2.13 per hour, as authorities claim that tips would cover the difference to hit the Basic Combined Cash & Tip Minimum Wage Rate of $7.25. Sure, the system’s not broken or anything!
