Okay, so we can all agree that the tipping situation in the United States is f*cked up. It shouldn’t be the customer’s job to pay the worker a living wage based on how hard they laugh at your stupid jokes. The business owner should pay them a living wage. Unfortunately, until this changes, customers are on the hook for tipping their servers.
Someone on Reddit’s AITA page asked if he was in the wrong for not tipping his waitress friend who had recently won $20,000 in the lottery. It sounds like a lot of money, but it’s really not if you have any kind of debt.
It’s not exactly clear what this guy expected from posting this, but clearly he thought he was in the right. Yes, his friend won a bunch of money, but she is clearly still working. If she didn’t need the money, she would have immediately called her job and quit. Believe me, no one waits tables for fun. Does he think that she should share the money with him in the form of letting him off the hook for tips? If so, I hope she can find some better friends soon.
