Today, I was working at Tim Hortons. A lady was in line, and she couldnt make up her mind. 20 minutes later she finally decided to get something, and she reached in her pocket. I was hoping it was a tip, but she gave me a coupon for a haircut. FML

You should have looked her straight in the eyes, looked up to her hair and said "It's okay, I think you'll need it. But make sure the hairdresser chooses the cut, because something tells me you aren't the greatest at making decisions."

I've heard that Canadians are exceptionally polite. Maybe she was trying to subtly tell you that she found a hair on her donut. Next time she comes in and tell her she's won a free cream-filled donut, and then go in the back and make her a "special" one. Include a complimentary hair of a different sort.

Well, if she gave it to you, then you get a haircut.

Exactly, chucking this into the "Nobody cares" category

well maybe he has short hair and doesnt want to grow it out? lucky...i live in texas we have no more tim hortons, when i was in new york i ate there everyday :(

stupid old lady

15- Fuck yeah, Tim Hortons Is the shit.

I used to work at a Tim Hortons downtown, this story made me laugh. The wierdest poeple in the country flock to Tims in groups. Idk why, buy if youve worked there youde agree xD

This is an FML worthy incident? Quit yer whining and use the coupon.

YDI for expecting a tip in the first place. Its not even implied that you spent a long time helping her decide on that something.

maybe she's trying to tell you your hair looks like bum and you need a better haircut... you should be thankful :)

YDI for expecting a tip. You work at TIM HORTONS! It's a coffee joint, not a restaurant.

You've never seen the Tip Jar at Starbucks if you think tips are only for at restaurants.

Yeah Starbucks has a tip jar, but their employees receive minimum wage. At restaurants the waitresses receive below minimum wage and the difference comes from tips. Tips jars at coffee shops are just selfish kids wanting to get paid for work they are already getting paid for.

my daughter used to work at Timmies, she made quite a bit in tips

LOL what's with the denial? Tips exist at Tim Horton's. Done.

The "tips" at Tim hor tons are for children's hospitals and rmhs in Canada's

What's up with north americans and their sense of entitlement?

...If you knew anything about Tim Hortons then you'd know it's common for people to leave their change behind. The "tip" is usually miniscule if they get one at all. If you knew anything about the food service industry in North America, you'd know waiters/waitresses often have a lower minimum wage than some part time high school kid starting their first day of work at Wal Mart... so the sence of entitlement comes from the need to ummmm feed their kids. Not this d-bag, mind you... but before painting an entire group of people with the same brush, why don't you use your head for a second

According to the US Department of Labor, an employer is legally required to pay compensation if the hourly wage and the tips don't add up to the minimum wage. http://www.dol.gov/wb/faq26.htm

wow douchebag, fuck off

You should have tossed off and gave her a double cream filling...

at least you got something from her

What you said: "..." What you should've said: "Yeah, becasue I want a haircut from someone that takes 20 minutes to decide which donut she wants with her coffee!"

You should have looked her straight in the eyes, looked up to her hair and said "It's okay, I think you'll need it. But make sure the hairdresser chooses the cut, because something tells me you aren't the greatest at making decisions."

You score an FML for working in Tim Hortons...

how about a big "screw you." tim hortans is better than your sorry ass

I am Canadian and Tim Hortons is awesome, 'nuff said.
