Man Sparks TikTok Debate After Tipping Restaurant Staff Negatively

A man has sparked a debate after giving a negative tip to restaurant staff because of the poor service he claims to have received.

In a viral video that has been viewed over a million times, @gameoftony filmed himself tipping-$ 32.49 adding the caption to the clip: “Bad food, eternal wait, rude waitresses , so sad. “

It would appear that the user was trying to play a joke because while he did not appear to have left a tip, his attempt to leave a negative tip would have seen him pay nothing, which is not exactly allowed. In addition, after further inspection, he writes on the copy of the customer’s receipt.

One person replied, “I don’t think it works like that. You still have to pay, man.” Another person said: “Unfortunately, it is not working.”

While this is clearly a joke, many felt the gag was unfair to staff, especially in the restaurant industry, as tips can be a big part of their pay.

One person replied, “As a former waitress it makes me sad. I always tip even if there are problems. We are human, mistakes happen.”

A second said: “I mean, I think tips should be based on waiter or waitress service, but that’s ridiculous.”

A third asked, “Did you say something to the waitress about bad food?” Did you give them a chance to fix it? Are they understaffed? Was the restaurant busy? “

However, as expected, it was a joke. In a comment given to Daily point, @gameoftony said: “Half the people got the joke and the other half hate me now.”
