Well you got a dollar OP. Was that worth getting written up? No. But you got 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 bosses...you just can't win.
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.
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..
Did you explain to your manager?! I'm sure he/she would have been understanding!
