Today, I ordered take out, and paid with a credit card. The cute cashier gave me the receipt to sign, and under 'tip' I gave a couple of dollars. I realized that I had given too much, crossed it out, and changed it. Unaware she was watching, She then responded, "Did you just lower the tip by $1?" FML

  • What does it matter if she saw you do it or not? She would have seen it crossed out in a little bit anyway. It's a weird thing that you would bother to cross it out and lower it by only a dollar, seeing as how a dollar is relatively insignificant in the grand scheme of things, but it's just weird as opposed to horrible. Plus, it was only take out, people don't normally tip on take out at all so if I were her, I'd feel grateful to have even gotten a couple dollars.

  • I think I am going to be one of the new people who will support this and say FYL. I don't tip unless the waiter has done exceptional work. I don't expect him to do backflips, but I always seem to get the sloppy waiters who think they are entitled to a tip just because they do their job. Ugh, no. If you want more money than you make, get a second job or make me feel like a special customer, not that hard. If you didn't think she deserved that much, I stand behind you 100%.
