Today, I helped a very large elderly man, who thanked me and tried to hand me a dollar bill. I kindly told him, "We are not allowed to accept tips from customers." His reply was, "You're going to take this fucking money," and shoved it in my pocket. I'm now being written up for it. FML

Yes, because OP can live off a dollar.

Well, that was rude of him. Even if he was trying to be generous, he definitely didn't do it the right way. He was disrespectful for shoving the money in your pocket like that after he was told it couldn't be accepted. It's unfair for you to get written up if you explained the what happened to your boss, even though with some just can't win.

When my mom and I try to tip someone that isn't allowed to accept tips we crumple up the money and throw it on the ground/in the cart. That way they just found some money. It wasn't a tip from a customer.

As a nurse, I'm not allowed to accept tips either. But sometimes the patient will get so worked up by a refusal I take it. I then hand it in to my boss who puts it into the floor charity fund. The patient gave a tip and I didn't keep it. Problem solved. All businesses should have something like this for people who don't take no for an answer.

I'm assuming that it isn't a place like a restaurant to begin with. It might be a job at, for example, an electronics store where you aren't allowed money directly from customers (i.e a tip).

See in some work places you're not allowed to accept tips. Ex, Where I work we cannot accept tips, I work at Starbucks inside a Target. Since we're not corporal we can't accept tips unlike the corporal starbucks. When people try to give us tips we can't accept it, but we can accept compliments lol Most of our customers just pretend they left there change and walk away, we keep there change inside our registers and hand them back to a customer as there change. Overall some places just cannot accept tips. sadly..

I work as a host an a restaurant and our hourly wages are higher than the servers and bartenders. We don't get tip outs and we're not allowed to accept tips. Some people are pushy, though

Nope, some places aren't understanding, they are strict with rules even if you tried to follow them. You are punished for things that aren't your fault, like this FML
