Couple's Stingy And Cruel Tipping "Trick" Is Causing Outrage Across The Internet

Waiting staff across the U.S. are outraged after a couple posted on Facebook about a tipping trick, a post that soon went viral on several social media networks. Indignant Facebook users flared up after a screenshot of the original post was shared by a user named Tyler Anne-Marie, who was fuming over the now deleted post.

The original post details a couple’s last restaurant outing and their recommendation to use a cruel tipping strategy. According to the couple, when you are seated at your table, you should place five $1 bills beside your plate and say nothing to the waiter or waitress. If the server makes a mistake, you should take away one of the bills and “At the end of dinner, how ever much is left, is their tip.”

The miserly strategy appears to have been a success for the unnamed couple, writing: “I s**t you not, you will receive the best service of your life. The waitress kept looking at it as if she was confused. But she played her cards right, did a great job and received the whole 5 bucks.”

However, at one stage of the night, the couple were forced to remove a bill because…the waiter momentarily forgot the bread, writing: “I did take away a dollar tho bec she forgot the bread, but she bounced back and gave us extra. Haha all in all a great evening with my love and a good dinner experiment we both wanted to play out.”

Completely oblivious to their derisory attitude to waiting staff, the couple urged other people to try their tipping strategy, writing: “Try it, you will be surprised!” However, the response from social media users has been anything but supportive. Before it was deleted, the post received hundreds of negative comments and thousands of shares, with the majority of users criticizing the couple for taunting their waitress.

After a screenshot was uploaded to Twitter, the criticism became even stronger. One Twitter user, Angus Johnston, sarcastically posted: “If you want the wait staff to spit in your food, you could always just ask.” Another user, named john lennon, mournfully responded “this is not a real post, right? please, please tell me this is not a real post by an actual living human being. please.”

The insulting attitude of the couple aside, many Twitter users are criticizing the overall size of the tip, with a user, known as @turnbullet666, writing: "This person sucks. When is $5 enough tip for a dinner for 2 anyway?” Across other social media platforms, users are noting that the tip amount was pathetic for a couple’s meal and definitely less than the standard tip size of 20% of the meal’s cost.

Considering U.S. waiting staff endure long hours, high stress and low pay, tips are usually acknowledged as an important aspect of the job. Following the massive backlash, the anonymous couple have deleted their post – maybe next time, they will keep their nasty tipping methods to themselves.
