UPDATE: Looks like this receipt was a PhotoShop job. We take back everything bad we ever wrote about bank executives.
Hey, terrible, soulless, scurrilous, awful banker leaving a 1% tip on a $133.54 bill — if your server takes your advice and goes out to “get a real job,” who is going to be there to proffer up your sparkling water and steak cooked medium rare?
The Huffington Post reports on the story of a big bad banker boss who left just less than a 1% tip of $1.33 on a meal of $133.54, apparently to express his disgust in the working stiffs of the 99% who don’t have “real” jobs. Like the one he has where he gets paid ridiculously large amounts of money and then turns around to shove it in everyone’s faces.
His crappy behavior and photographic evidence of such was chronicled on a blog called Future Ex Banker, which has subsequently been deleted. The blogger says his boss’ reason for such truly heinous behavior is that he does that every time he “feels the server doesn’t sufficiently bow down to his Holiness. Oh, and he always makes sure to include a ‘tip’ of his own.”
HuffPo talked to the vice president of operations for the establishment where the 1% incident went down, who says they’re not taking the story lightly.
“The first thing we’re going to do is to make sure the server is taken care of,” he said, “and make sure the server wasn’t treated badly or insufficiently tipped.” They’ll also ask the server named on the receipt if she remembers the table (something tells us she does) and if her service “was up to the level” they assume their employees would deliver.
Then, “they would do everything they can to make it up to her somehow.” If the customer has the gall to come back to the restaurant, he adds that he’d love to talk to him, ostensibly not to ask him about his penmanship.
