Restaurant Customers Stiff Server, Leave "LOL" on Tip Line

In Depth

We have a very strong new contender for Worst Restaurant Customer of 2015.

Via the Asbury Park Press, Jess Jones was waiting tables as D’Jais Bar and Grill in Belmar, New Jersey earlier this week on a particularly busy night. Even though they were (according to Jones) apparently notified from the moment they sat down that the kitchen would be running behind, and were kept up to speed on drinks, they were so incensed they had to wait an hour for their food that they left the above example of what happens when a family’s gene pool becomes a septic tank. As you can see, they left “LOL” on the tip line of a (not inconsiderable) $112.03 check, along with the words “1 hour for food,” as if that makes them any more justified in acting like wastes of perfectly good oxygen. Jones herself posted the receipt the next day with the customer’s identifying information blurred out. From her Facebook post:

My experience with this table was cruel and unnecessary but sadly it’s not uncommon. With that said: Please be good to your waiters. I know it’s annoying when things aren’t right. I know how aggravating it is to receive a hefty bill when all night you’ve been wondering why the table that came in after you was served before you. But waiters are mere messengers most of the time, and it’s wrong to shoot them, however bad the news.

For those of you about to point out that these stories are “always” fake because of the two times that happened (which constitutes “always” to some of you, I guess), here are all the people that care what you have to say about anything:
