  1. mojo says:

    I’d give it back, with the advice “Get a personality, jerk.”

  2. AliceH says:

    Hmmm. I went to the site because I was certain there was some backstory here, but nothing there. I’ve just never met any rich folks who would expend a thought about their waiters, much less take the time to snark at them on a receipt… UNLESS there was some serious provocation. It’d take more than just bad service, I think.

  3. JeffS says:

    I thought much the same, AliceH. OTOH, Breanna didn’t send the receipt in, someone sitting at the table did. That looks like a cell phone photo.

    Some people are a$$hole$ because they can be. So it’s possible that Breanna’s only crime is being unable to respond in a suitable fashion to this provocation.

    I bet they remember him though and he will probably get something extra in his next meal, what a douche bag.

    There’s more on the story at AOL. Seems the receipt was sent in by the young lad DINING with the big spender ~ a subordinate at the bank they both work at. He had a Twitter acct that this pic was posted to initially, but all have been discontinued, probably out of self-preservation impulses.

  6. JeffS says:

    In the interests of fairness, Dave In Texas, over at Ace of Spades, thinks that the MFM is in full MSU mode now.

    Could be, could be. The story can be neither confirmed nor denied. Me, having met some truly arrogant jerks in my life, put the odds at 70%/30% for true/false.

  7. tree hugging sister says:

    Ebola has a few “having spent time in the service industry” stories he could share, so I’m willing to believe it could happen. Especially if one of these guys has a cocktail or two with lunch ~ they feel even more bullet-proof (whereas with me and Kcruella, we tip even better buzzed and we’re 20%ers to START with).

  8. Greg Newson says:

    I bet this guy drives a BMW.
    I worked at a service station,while employees still pumped gas,and BMW drivers were the biggest as#holes as customers.I still see them weaving in and out of
    traffic and say to myself” BMW
    driver,of course”

  9. Ave says:

    My experiences waiting tables and tending bar amply showed me how having money and having class are not the same thing.

  10. AliceH says:

    I’ve been on both sides – a waiter and a diner with rich banker types picking up the tab. Not a question of which side of the transaction is more likely to be an ass – that’s about break-even in my mind. It’s a question of which would be more likely to take such stupid, petty, ignorant action as this – and for that, [again, in my experience] it’s hands-down wait-staff.

    And fwiw, I was composing this comment before I saw Bingley’s link, which I will now read.

  11. Syd B. says:

    I’m not ashamed to admit that my tipping pattern is more impacted by the size of my server’s Macaroons than the level of service she provides.

    When you’re over 50, these things are important.

  12. nightfly says:

    This has happened to me, complete with the same “friendly advice.” The offender wasn’t a 1%er, either – just an everyday jerk.

    It’s not the money that causes it.

  13. Larry says:

    Yep, it’s a hoax. I have found when something is too outrageous to be believed it’s either a Government program or it’s a hoax.

  14. Syd B; says:

    Not always, Larry. Obama is no hoax, although is is definitely a joke.

  15. Julie says:

    Greg, I used to ask if you had to be an asshole to drive a Lexus, or if you became one when you bought the car. I finally got an answer: it’s an free option with purchase. Who knew?

  16. Larry says:

    Syd B, I would lump him in with Government programs. I can think of at least one that would apply.

  17. The fact that the Huffington Post would publish this without even bothering to call the restaurant first speaks to the MSM journalism skills. pitiful.
