The Evil Notebook

Have you ever worked in a restaurant? Tips can be the least of your worries when you have a table of rude demanding patrons. Waiting, hoping, wishing they’d skip dessert and leave as soon as the bill’s paid.

And I’ve heard horror stories about bad tips, but this one really takes the cake. I saw a Today Show story yesterday about a waitress in Seattle, Victoria Liss, who was left NO tip along with a note scribbled under the credit card signature (not a smart move) saying “P.S. You could stand to lose a few pounds.”

As Stephanie Tanner would say “How RUDE!!” And while I’m not surprised by anything, why would a customer ever write such a snarky inconsiderate comment? Totally unnecessary.

Victoria+Liss

The waitress, Victoria Liss, took to her facebook page and the story went viral outraging people over the man’s snarky stupid move. I wonder how great of food service he’ll get now that his name is all over the Internet? He should carry cash.

This story made me think about a psycho note left on my car a couple weeks ago. My brother borrowed my car to drive to class at San Francisco State. He parallel parked on a busy street near campus and there was a 20-something year old Caucasian woman sitting in a mid-size reddish car parked behind him.
When he came out from class he noticed the entire driver’s side of my car was KEYED. But that’s not all, there was this note on the windshield:
Note+on+car+Savvy+Spice+vandalism
Dear whoever keyed my car,
I’m guessing you’re not an art major. Oh, and thanks for letting us know the “appropriate amount of room” to park in SF.
P.S. I wish you made a key for this diagram. Is that 5ft or 10?
Sincerely, Dale
(Sidenote) Having a car in SF can be a huge headache. You’ll need Austin Powers parking skills, plus there’s citations, super steep hills and your bumper is guaranteed to get scratched and hit on a regular basis. My car is nearly 5 years old and it’s a C-class (I’m not a baller), but I really try to take care of it. I put a helpful “Bumper Bully” protector on it when it’s parked which she watched my brother do that day.

   It will cost $1800 to repaint the entire side of my car so I just want to give a little shout out
to State Farm Auto Insurance 
Savvy+Spice+car+vandalism+in+San+Francisco
I wish people didn’t key cars. I don’t like it and neither does my neighbor’s dog, Wallace icon smile
We reported the vandalism, called my insurance and tried to see if the likely SF State student(s) who did this parked in the same area the next week. No luck. I’m sure she had a bad day, so boom, she ripped out a piece of paper from her evil little notebook for an afternoon arts and crafts session that took way longer than it would have to just pull out of the parking spot.
So if my Nancy Drew detective efforts remain fruitless, there’s always Karma. hehe icon wink
What do you think of either story?
Have you ever received a crazy rude note?
Have a great weekend!

    no didn’t receive a note but equally rude is when someone hits your car hard enough that it leaves an 8 inch long 5 inch wide scratch mark on your car… I can only assume they don’t know how to pull out of the space parallel to me.. not sure how it happened because they didn’t have the curtesy to leave me a note.. IN MY OWN APT COMPLEX… I have my very own Nancy Drew investigation going on as well.. Here’s to finding the dirty rotten scoundrels (tipping my wine glass to you).

  3. Chococcuro says:

    My car was keyed for, I believe, the same reason! It was like the week after I bought it :( All the way from front to back on the left side of the car…people must think it’s well within their rights to damage your property when they have been inconvenienced…especially if you have a brand new car, therefore implying you have the money to fix it????? >: (

  4. Teddi says:

    both stories are unsettling, but so completely real. i think that waitress chick looks like roseanne barr. anybody else agree? i like to leave really nice notes for my server on the receipt with smiley faces & thanks etc. dale, sorry your car car got keyed. some people are inconsiderate idiots. the end.

  5. Jay says:

    not cool, this makes me lose faith in humanity. :(

  6. Sam says:

    Good gosh! I can’t believe someone keyed your car, that’s terrible!
    So sorry.
    Am following you now :)

  7. Vanessa@Luxuria says:

    OMG! Why are people pushed over the edge to be so damn nasty? Thankfully Spanish people are extremeley passive people. So sometimes when my car has been hemmed in because of bad parking, it’s really hard to be angry when the person appears very apologetic. However, envy is the country’s national SIN. Consequently my car was keyed 3 days after driving it out of the showroom! Karma is all I hope for in these situations; and it never fails ;-)

  14. Francesca R says:

    I am really impressed by what happened to your car and that waitress, I’ve got flat tires but no notes a couple of times and my car was keyed once.
    I think that these people should undergo psychiatric treatment!

  15. Carolyn´s Photography says:

    I hate rude senseless cruel people who do not seem to care who they hurt or anything else for that matter. They could be the reason that she kills herself, eats more because she is depressed & so much more… Grow up is what that man should do literally & oh wow I am so so sorry about the keyed car that is awful. I would have been so pissed… I wonder how the person who keyed your car would have felt if it had of been theirs & not yours… I cannot stand immature people who cannot seem to grow up!

  17. Jessie says:

    I am so sorry about your car and for that waitress! So many rude and inconsiderate people nowadays! I hope karma gets them!

  19. Sandy at Ooh La Frou Frou says:

    I am sorry to hear about this – it’s a shame.
    I have never keyed a car, I always think that I COULD BE THE ONE being keyed so I just stay away from it.
    I have gotten angry notes left on my windshield – but i forgot about them quickly.

  21. Kaleido Mind says:

    omg that’s horrible!!! people can be so irritating…

  22. Gosh that’s so evil!!! so sorry doll that such horrible things had happened to you. People sometimes can be so terrible and have such an ugly black heart! Sorry doll :(

    That is horrible! Some people are just crazy in the head! Even to leve a note to the waitress is insane.. Sorry about the whole car situation! It happened to my friend once as we were walking out of work.. For your coworker to do that is a bit messed up…

    Hugs! ~Angel

  24. Gawgus things... says:

    I can’t believe these rude notes! What are people like nowadays?? In France, the bumpers are used all the time when parking i.e. you don’t stop until you’ve touched the other person’s bumper and quite often cars are left out of gear so you can push them forward or backwards a bit to make room for your car!! Far more civilised ;) xxx

  25. Paulina Mo says:

    what ?!? a note is one thing but to key your car in addition is just crazy… whenever I get a mean person or someone rude, I always say 1.karma is a biotch and 2.their Karma is living with themselves day in and day out. Imagine having to be mad all the time? and going to the extent of damaging someone else’s property? as long as you don’t hit a car you can park as close as you’d like! …. girl, I love your posts, they always get me talkin’ about something! hee hee

    Really really sorry about your car, that is just so unnecessary and upsetting.

  27. Chrisology says:

    lol, really with the picture of the three cars. They should have left the 5 to 10 feet like you said. I hate when people do stuff like that. I have a foot print in my door.
