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.
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:
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?
(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
I wish people didn’t key cars. I don’t like it and neither does my neighbor’s dog, Wallace
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 ;)
What do you think of either story?
Have you ever received a crazy rude note?
Have a great weekend!
