A Banker has decided to have his say about the Occupy Wall Street Movement. He has decided that when he goes to eat he is only going to tip 1% on all his bills in complete disregard of the 99%.
One of his dining partners was so disgusted by his behavior he took a picture of the check he saw and posted it online. In addition to leaving only a 1% tip he writes a bit of a tip of his own, writing “Get a real job!”.
The employee who took the picture of the check write a little background about the Banker on his blog saying,
“Mention the “99%” in my boss’ presence and feel his wrath. So proudly does he wear his 1% badge of honor that he tips exactly 1% every time he feels the server doesn’t sufficiently bow down to his Holiness. Oh, and he always makes sure to include a “tip” of his own.”
He further stated,
“I work in the corporate office of a major bank for a boss who represents everything wrong with the financial industry: blatant disregard and outright contempt for everyone and everything he deems beneath him. On top of that, he’s a complete and utter tool. At the same time, I’m still cashing paychecks, an admittedly willing—albeit reluctant—cog in the wheel of this increasingly ugly industry, so I’ve created this blog as a confessional of sorts. It won’t entirely clear my conscience, but hopefully it’ll help. I’m sure I’ll get fired eventually. Until then, enjoy.”
The restaurant was made aware of the poorly tipping customer and told the Huffington Post that they will be compensating the waitress for her service even if this jerk would not.
Do you think he the banker is being fair to the waitresses by only tipping 1%?
