The presumed husband wrote in a Facebook post how he and his wife manipulated their waitress into giving them better service by leaving five dollar bills on the table and taking one off if she made a mistake.
They explain at length how to do it: “You put 5 singles out on the table at the beginning of dinner for the waiter/waitress to see. (Don’t say anything to them) if they mess up, you take a dollar away, and so on.” If this is all true, it’s way harsh.
The writer then proceeds to say that the “waitress kept looking at it as if she was confused,” probably because this is unlike anything they’ve ever seen before. They say their waitress “played her cards right,” so she got the whole tip. They claim you’ll “get the best service of your life,” but you’ll probably also get a reputation as the rudest customer ever.
We have a better idea when it comes to eating out: Tell your waiter you appreciate the hard work they do, especially over the holidays, and pay it forward.
