This weekend, one of the restaurant’s customers decided to show off his gratitude — by leaving $1,088 as a tip.
“I think this is a big thing,” Anantatho said after hearing of the tip.
The server who received the tip brought it to Anantatho and wanted to put it in the tip jar, where all the waitstaff shares their tips.
“He said he’d read a lot of stories like this, but usually the tip is a couple hundred dollars, not $1,000,” Anantatho said of the waiter to The Denver Post. “He was so happy.”
Happy — but only for so long. Anantatho encouraged her staff to hold onto the tip in case the customer returned. Which he did, the next day, full of regrets.
“He said, ‘I’m sorry, I was drunk,’” Anantatho said. “He didn’t know he put all the money he had in the checkbook.”
Sooo this guy can never go back to this restaurant ever again, right? I mean, you can’t take back tips regardless of how much or how little. It’s permanent. Just like how you think your Snapchats go away after 10 seconds but there is definitely some creep at home with a database full of all dick pics.
This guy should’ve eaten that bullet. Become a legendary baller. The $1000 tipman. That’s not a bad look. It’s certainly a tough lifestyle to maintain but you know what’s worse? Being the guy who comes back the next morning begging for your cash back.
As you read this, I am currently banned from a bar for tipping 9 cents sooo I completely understand this guy’s need to go back and correct things but I know the rules. Once you throw that cash down or sign that receipt, the transaction is finalized. Those are the rules of life. Respect our society.
