Waitress Floored By What Customers Left Her As A ‘Tip’

A waitress in West Virginia recently had her day ruined by a couple she waited on, and the incident was so disturbing that it has grown into a full blown controversy to boot. This wasn’t your run-of-the-mill interaction with disgruntled and entitled customers, but rather an extremely flagrant display of unconscionable racism that simply has no place in society.

As the Daily Mail reports, Kelly Carter, a black waitress at Anita’s, a New Mexico style restaurant in Ashburn, Virginia, waited on a white couple that sat down in her section. Everything went off without a hitch as far as Anita and restaurant management is concerned, but things took a disturbing turn when the couple paid their bill.

The couple ponied up for their meal without issue, but they left a note on the credit card receipt.

“Great service. Don’t tip black people,” the note read.

The stunning note absolutely floored Carter.

“It was just total shock, that's all that I can say. I looked at the receipt three times because I was so shocked, never ever being a server have I seen that,” she said.

The incident has captured the attention of local media and taken on a life of its own.

“It's appalling, disheartening, outrageous - all of the above. Thought it's kind of in line with the political landscape,” said Tom Tellez, the restaurant's manager.

The Loudon County NAACP Chapter looked into the incident as well, and they took to social media to share some thoughts.

“Hatred will not be tolerated and we will not keep quiet. This has been confirmed and did happen per Mgr @ Anita's in Ashburn,” the group wrote.

A local fundraising page was established on Carter’s behalf, and it’s raised $320 to date. While that’s certainly a welcome and pleasant surprise, it does little to change the repercussions from what was undoubtedly a jarring incident, but at least she can rest easy at night knowing that she’s not anything remotely like the couple she unfortunately had to serve.
