Tipping Over The Top

, , , , | Right | July 6, 2016

(I am the customer. I’ve had bariatric surgery so I’m very limited on what and how much I can eat. My husband likes a certain dish at this restaurant, so we go and I as usual order a glass of water. I usually eat a third of his salad and maybe a bite of his seafood. I feel really guilty about not ordering a meal, so to make ME feel better, I always double tip the server. I get the bill, see the little calculation for tip on the bottom, and doubled the 20%… in cash. The server looked at me like she was going to cry.)

Server: “Oh, you don’t have to do that!”

Me: “It makes ME feel good; because I’ve had bariatric surgery and why should you still do all that work to serve us even though I don’t eat?”

(She was overcome; I guess that’s the nicest anyone had been to her that day.)
