I was reading this story on yahoo news about a single mom not tipping a meal of $140 at 1st thought it was real but as I read lot of peoples comments most where saying it seem fake as I reread it was starting to think maybe it can be fake.

Here is the link to the story

Probably fake, since it was posted on reddit.

I think being a single mom definitely entitles you to leeway in a lot of places in life, but this obviously isn't one of them.

Even if it's real, who cares? Not all people have extra money to spend on tips.

Then don't eat at a place where waiters get paid less than minimum wage. (especially if it's a place where you can rack up a $140 bill wtf)

The tipping system in America is really frustrating and awful but ensuring the person waiting on you makes less by not tipping them is a really terrible thing to do.

Oh come on. Single mothers typically choose their douche bag, sperm donor love interests. They lied before pregnancy stating that they found Prince Charming, but they really dredged the bottom of the barrel for scum they could "fix."

It's simple attraction for bad boys which sways these poor, unfortunate women. Maybe they were victims of abuse as children.

I do, however, feel sorry for them, but likely not enough to date them where I would be constantly compared to the previous lover, hence the inevitable undermining of my own confidence for no good reason.

Real.

Knowing and working with people...

I have nothing positive to say about them.

This chick, IDC if she is a single mom. Why...Why would you spend $140 on a meal? Wtf??
and then not tip, then add insult to injury....






and LOL. 'Single mothers typically choose their douche bag, sperm donor love interests.'

So much truth to that.

Harsh as my words were, it's an ugly truth. I once felt for a single mother, though it ended quickly in the dreaded friend zone.

It was a good end to what may have been an extremely bad relationship.

That is legitimately one of the most misogynistic things I've read in a long time.

No, but if there is a scientific term for disapproval of dating single mothers, you can glue that one to me.

I'll bite.

Would you care to review reality? Sexual attraction with women is like flies to shit. They have to eat a little of it to get hurt, then they figure out what husband material is really about.

Isn't it illegal to pay people under the minimum wage in america? I know it is in Briton, unless it is cash in hand (but nobody knows you have paid them), and I can't see the big fuss, if the waiter was absolute shite and a dick to you all evening then why would you tip them? there is a lot of holes in the story so I cannot conclude, whether or not this is real.

It's fake. The handwriting on the two notes clearly do not match.

I agree. One must carry a tip calculator at all times for those who actually did their job correctly.
