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.

don’t get mad at the customer for not giving you free money for doing your job

Okay, I agree with most of your sentiment but this is just uncalled for. Tipping is supposed to reflect the quality of service. If you serve well, you’re given extras for your dedication. It’s not “free money”.

I’m not saying that the toxic tipping culture in America is good, but saying that it’s “free money” is insulting for the workers.

It absolutely is free money. Its expected no matter how good your service is. Op was upset because they didnt tip on a large bill AS EXPECTED. tips in america are nor for hard work or due diligence, theyre there to benefit employers and direct all anger at customers instead of them.
