Skip to comments.“Single Mom, Sorry” Tip Receipt Excuse Flares Tempers
Posted on 11/06/2012 3:33:24 PM PST by Altariel
(Reddit.com) A woman had enough money to pay for a $138.35 bill, but not enough to handle 15 percent more than that. The explanation written in the tip line, Single Mom Sorry. An online discussion has broken out around the country after the included photo surfaced on Reddit.
The photo was posted by editor PhenixSongFawkes on the online forum. He wrote, Im sure $140 could have gotten you and your kids a week worth of groceries, but instead you spend it one one meal?! For shame!
That tends to be the general sentiment of comment posters on Reddit and other social media sites, with most insinuating that if the woman could afford a $140 bill, she could probably afford to add a somewhat-obligatory 15 percent tip, which would total $21.

Definitely an Obama voter.
I say legit
I have seen too many play the “Single Mom’ Card. They try to wear it like a disabled placard that will allow behavior that is not accepted from others
Wagyu or Lobster?
tips are not obligatory.
$131 meal is enough, paying extra is stupid
If the restaurant isn’t paying the waitstaff, it ain;t the customers fault
Single Mom is the politically correct term applied to what used to be known as “slut, tramp, easy-lay, etc.”, but now, it’s “Chic” to have no father supporting the kids they created, and expecting that to be an excuse for lack of self-reliance/self-responsibility, and in so many cases, relying on OTHERS to pay for your mistakes and/or “good times”.
Service charge really should be part of the bill.
I’m all for tipping. Spent years as a bartender.
Tipping is for businesses that hire employees.
Certain shops in my area are owner run and operated, the owner(husband and wife) drives the latest model car. Yet when I go into their business to buy something they have a tip jar out and the wife is extrovertly hustling for tips. No hired employees there. After a while I stopped going there because of the overt tip hustling. They lose.
“tips are not obligatory.”
Unless you have a sense of class.
When you go to an establishment like this, it is understood that part of the bill is a tip to the person that waited on you. That is part of their salary.
That 131.00 might have to pay for the food, utilities, taxes, chef and cook staff. It was just wrong to walk out and pay nothing.
” If you can’t afford to pay your server, go to McDonalds, or better yet, the grocery store.”
Or order the meal as takeout. But to go to a restaurant for the service and not pay for the service...that’s real cheap.
Who knew FR was so full of occutards?
The restaurant needs to include the tip in the bill or STFU.
Obama Supporter. Could have gone fast food where no tip would be required, but she was sure she deserved this...
exactly, if its not part of the price, then it is optional
