Judging by the hand writing and grammar I'd say it is probably fake. I work in social services and all I can say is the ones who would pull that stuff weren't brought up in a proper household to begin with and wouldn't be able to write that well. And I'm not saying it was well written either.

Though, I wouldn't push it past someone to try that.

The basis of this story whether it is true or false is whether it is ok to not tip when you go to a restaurant me and my mother in law and son went for mothers day brunch one time when my husband was working had horrible service yet the table behind us (filled with good looking guys) with the same waitress got outstanding service everytime we tried to get our waitress we were ignored when we finally got our meal and drinks about 30 minutes later we were not once asked about our food or if we needed another drink or anything so when it was time to leave we had to flag down another waitress to get our waitress to bring our check (by the way the place wasnt even busy for a restaurant I work in one so I know what busy in one is like) so we were deciding whether or not to leave a tip and decided to leave none as she had not earned it and had done nothing to show she deserved one but everytime we go to the restaurant I work at we always leave a tip because even before i worked there the service was always wonderful (they dont do mothers day brunches) so yes i believe people should leave tips always unless you have experiences like mine,

Your government shouldn't be allowing your employer to do that to begin with. Tips shouldn't be seen as mandatory, as your official wage should be the minimum. I've always wondered why a somewhat civilized country had such a dirty system.

Actually their is a way around paying minumum wage as long as the tips they recieve make up the diffrence. Imagine making only 2.13 a hour? That was what the servers make in some places like Sioux Falls where I spent most of my life, but in Portland they make as much as the cooks and get most of the tips since they smile and the cooks do most of what makes a good meal.

I usually don't carry $100+ on me. I use my card to pay for meals out and tip with cash. Probably what she did. I believe it makes it easier for the waiter.

Your a jackass! I've been a waiter, and if someone did this to me I'd confront them. She could have bought her kids happy meals for $20!

I don't tip. My money, I decide what I do with it.

Got too many fucking bills to pay to to dole out extra on some social norm I never signed aboard on.

Waiter pay system is horrendous, and should be reformed in the first place.

It's not required by law to pay them. So, why should I pay them? What if I don't have much money myself? People should only pay when they want to pay. They shouldn't be obligated to pay extra for your meal that you paid a significant amount for.

The restaurant I work at the wages between the servers and cooks are different as in canada each type of job has a different minimum wage such as if you work in a liquor store or in this case a restaurant the wages for the servers is only $8.90 per hour while us cooks make $10.25 per hour the servers depend on these tips to ensure they have a proper paycheck they are trying to survive paycheck to paycheck just like the rest of us if you dont have the money to go out for a meal and are complaining about having bills to pay and such why are so many people going out to eat then when they could go to the grocery store and make meals for the whole week for the price of one meal at a restaurant? I believe that if you get good service and good food that you should tip your waitress as they are just like the rest of us trying to make a living by working

its hard to tell it could be real but with the 2 different looking hand writing make you wander if its fake. I will say this if its real then how could she not tip when she just spend $140 on a meal if she really is a single mom she should of used that money for food at home and not spend it on a meal for the 1 night.

Whether it's fake or not.... single mother spends $140 on one meal instead of her kids, plus no tip. I'm sure it's very possible and has happened. It's not right regardless, though maybe I am letting my personal feelings get in the way a bit.

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.


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.


Do you hate women that much? Shit she was talking about single mothers, not random sleep arounds. how the hell did it go from single mum to abuse as a child.

Not all single mums are single because they chose the "bad boy"

Have you been rejected so much that your first response to a simple message like that is to have a sook about single mothers.

"Likely not enough to date them". as if they would want someone with their head stuck up their arse.
