In America, tipping little or none at all is considered a cardinal sin. So when a group of teens left a measly US$3.28 (AUS$4) in tip, the waiter who served them was pissed – that is until, they came back a week later.
Story goes, the unnamed waiter recently served a bunch of 13-year-olds who had just come from homecoming. Being the kids that they are, they didn’t know the rules of tipping (the expected tip in the US is around 15 to 20 percent.)
The waiter vented his frustration on Imgur, saying: “Nothing more frustrating than when I get little to nothing for a tip and the customer is smiling and thanking me profusely as they exit.”
A week later, though, the kids came back. This time, they brought the proper tip, and more. Here’s the heartwarming note the teens wrote for him.
In response, the man thanked the kids for coming back and making his day.
“I’ve been serving a long time, and nothing like this has ever happened to me, or anyone. I don’t know how you learned or educated yourself on tipping, but I really appreciate the effort and kindness. I hope your Homecoming was fantastic!”
