OP did not mention how many people were dining. What if this person is hard working and poor, and can only afford this outing once a year and truly doesn’t have much money?

Fucking thank you! I was thinking this too. I hardly eat out if ever, but if I am craving something after a long month then I am going to try to treat myself and my family. Also, this could have been a take out.

If this was a $1000 restaurant bill then yeah, dudes a terrible person at worst, or just really bad with money.

Bunch of high horse morons in this post. Not what antiwork should be about.

Also curious I haven’t seen anyone consider maybe this person was getting food for people who couldn’t go out due to illness or injury and had a specific budget. What if this person needed to not cook that night, for any number of reasons that have nothing to do with being an asshole? I’m pretty sure an asshole wouldn’t have thought or cared to say anything about not tipping.
