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

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.

I think it's hilarious when people try to group shit like this into antiwork hoping to garner support and outrage that someone didn't tip them only for the comments to basically all be about how tipping is stupid and your boss should be the one paying you more.

If you're upset that you aren't being paid enough don't get mad at the customer for not giving you free money for doing your job. Get mad at your boss for not paying you to do the job they hired you to do.

I hate this sub now. Everything that gets touched by these billionaire cock sucking Americans gets ruined. Even the mods have allowed this post for so long. This sub was about the uber rich multimillionaires and billionaires to pay their fair share of taxes but these Americans would rather choose to shit on middle class and lower class families and lick billionaire balls all day long. At this point I don't think they deserve even basic shit like paid vacation or long maternity leaves for themselves which even some third world countries already have. I hope Trump wins next time and makes their billionaires even more richer and pay more PPP loans to all businesses while shitting on these workers. Let them enjoy their self imposed slavery.

Bro bro im american and i hate these kinds of posts too please dont doom us all for the actions of a few :") we're literally brainwashed from day one to accept the status quo and even enforce it. We are convinced that this is the price of freedom, we are convinced the american dream is possible for anyone and that those that cant achieve it are just lazy. We are literally TAUGHT this from childhood. Many people who are vehemently against any change are completely and utterly brainwashed. Your anger makes sense but holy hell calm down a bit.

I'm sorry but I always talk about worker issues in my daily life. Even fight for those who don't get their fair wage but then these people come and make me feel like shit. I constantly argue and quarrel in real life to try and garner support against the uber rich class just so these jerks won't ever have to rely on tips ever again. I've spent a good amount of my time and energy trying to educate people about their rights. But tbh if someone's poor ass tries to go against the lower class and the middle class you bet I'm never ever going to support them. And I'll also tell my peers and acquaintances to do the same. Maybe the boomers were right about server jobs being meant for kids only.
