So sorry, I'm broke so I can only pay you $77 for my food. You were great though.

The US tipping culture is toxic as hell. Shaming people for eating out on a budget because an entire industry has convinced workers it's OK to be paid next to nothing? Ridiculous. People deserve living wages with tips viewed as an added gratuity or bonus for good service.

Honestly it is just a screenshot of a receipt and OP hasn’t respond to most comments. Maybe this was a 4 persons table, maybe the OP added the text after the customer left, maybe it is just fake. Don’t trust the internet :/ .

Ah yeah it is posted on the internet so it is 100% true. 🙄 OP later commented that this was indeed for 4 teenagers. So while it is not ideal, 4 teenagers paying for a meal and not able to pay a tip is not really the narrative op was initially pushing.

I know it happens but it doesn’t mean I can’t be sceptical of a post on Reddit. And it turned out that I was in my right: if op had titled his post “4 teenagers paid 20$ each for a meal but did not have enough money for a tip” it wouldn’t have the same impact right ?
