Rush Limbaugh probably is probably the first person ever to have a waiter or a waitress complain about receiving a large tip. In fact, this waitress is publicly saying she could not stand holding onto the “evil” radio host’s “blood money” and found a way to spend the money in a manner she knew Limbaugh would disapprove of wholeheartedly.
In a related report by The Inquisitr, LeSean McCoy spent approximately an hour at a burger restaurant with three other people and their server, Rob, was left a $0.20 tip left on the $61.56 bill, which amounts to a 0.3 percent tip; a “new record” low bad tip. Philadelphia Eagles fans were outraged when the restaurant owner posted the receipt on Facebook and claimed the NFL player was “verbally abusive” and even insulted women. In response, McCoy claimed the waiter was “rude and disrespectful” and said he would even leave a bad tip again.
Merritt Tierce admits she did not receive a bad tip, but instead claimed the problem was what she should do with the money since it came from a known conservative who is hated by progressive groups. Tierce is telling the story of her $2,000 tip in a her debut novel “Love Me Back,” which tells stories about her time as a waitress at a fancy Dallas steakhouse called Nick & Sam’s.
But the Rush Limbaugh story did not make it into her book, and she’s going out of her way to ensure everyone knows the story. Limbaugh did not tip Tierce $2,000 once, he tipped her $2,000 twice, both on checks said to be of a modest size. Despite the extreme generosity, Tierce says, “That was like blood money to me.”
According to The Dallas Morning News, Tierce happened to be the executive director of an organization called TEA Fund, which provides the money for abortions to low-income women. So Tierce decided to give a “sizeable chunk” of the $4,000 in tips to the TEA Fund in order to provide an ironic solution to her difficulty with keeping the money.
“It felt like laundering the money in a good way,” she says. “He’s such an obvious target for any feminist or sane person. It was really bizarre to me that he gave me $2,000, and he’s evil incarnate in some ways.”
Who do you think is being “evil” in this case; Rush Limbaugh or Merritt Tierce?
