Today, I was working at a place where if you're tipped, you sing. After a lady paid for her ice cream, she pulled out 5 dollars. Thinking it was a tip, I took it, and sang the song. She didn't mean to tip me. I was stopped by the woman slapping me. FML

18 - But slapping OP was incredibly unnecessary. She could have just politely said that it wasn't meant to be a tip and asked if she could have her change. Instead, she blew the situation out of proportion and acted bitchily.

It was a mistake and it was also five dollars. To some people that might be a lot to lose, but if you're out buying ice cream I'd like to hope you're not spending the small amount of money you have on that (unless you really need it y'know sometimes it helps to eat sweets)
So assuming the lady didn't have a problem with spending five dollars, that's such an overreaction. She's in a store where people sometimes give tips, not out on the street in the middle of the night.

People give tips. Key word, we all have a fight for flight reaction when something surprises us...

I'm sure if she wanted to leave a tip that there is a handy tip jar out...

I read it like that too at first but if you read back the whole thing it's very unlikely that's what was meant...doesn't really make sense. I'm sure OP would've had a different reaction if she just took money from the tip bowl.

That's what I thought. If the lady was just pulling it out of her wallet and he took it without her handing it to him, it's a YDI. If she did hand it to him, its a FML.


I was going to apply there but then found out about the singing.... Noo. I don't sing. I'd work there as a last resort. I think it's a pretty dumb policy. It's not like the customers want to hear you sing either. :P
