    What if she sucked at her job and he was giving her an honest, valuable tip?

    If he's trying to be part of the 1%, he has a rounding error.

    I would like to know the back story. If I went into a restaurant for lunch and was lectured by my server on the Occupy Movement's righteousness by my server I might do the same thing.

    Circling tip and writing "Get a real job" implies that he thinks her job is worthless or perhaps jobs that work for tips are not real jobs, which implies that he is a *********. The tip may have been earned however, who knows.

    Because that is obviously what happened here.

    It would make sense with the 1% tip, but I would think that a waiter in an upscale restaurant would be smarter than engaging a customer in a political argument.

    Re: Don't be this guy...

    I read the article on this one.

    Apparently the person who posted it online wasn't the waitress, but another person in this guy's group. Said the guy is a wealthy banker who looks down on other people and likes to lecture them about the merits of wealth. And that the 1% tip is meant as a jab to the 99%.

    The person eating lunch with him was so appalled by it they took the picture and posted it.

    IF, this guy ever returns to this restaurant, I imagine his meal will be full of loogies.

    If this is true and he eats at the same restaurant more than once, it is a great way to expand your menu into all sorts of exotic extras like bodily fluids and insects.

    Yea, I just read the article as well. If that story ends up checking out, what an ***. I can see not agreeing with the politics of the occupy movement. I could even let the ****** tip go. But the smart-*** "Get a real job" comment sets me off. She HAS a real job. The world ceases to function if everyone's "real" job is "rich bank president".

    I guess we have both worked in the restaurant business.
