In an article in The Mirror, a waitress gets the ultimate revenge on a toxic diner who retracted a $100 tip when his date wasn't looking.
The man had put on a show for his date. He tried to impress her in every way possible by being as courteous and well-mannered as possible.
For the date, he ordered the highest-quality wine and requested that his date choose the most expensive dishes on the menu. He ordered every single appetizer on the menu for his date and told her that she never had to worry when she was with him.
Once it was time to settle the bill, the waitress brought out the receipt. The total on the tab amounted to almost $300. The man seemed to be only too happy to pay the bill. He also made a big show of including a $100 tip for the waitress and thanking her for her service.
It looked like the couple had left the restaurant after paying. Suddenly, the man reappears claiming that he had forgotten his car keys. He appeared alone leaving his date to wait for him.
The man walks over to the waitress and tells her to mark the tip down to $20.
'Mark the tip down to twenty bucks, hun, I was just playing it up for my date. You understand.'
if I see a cent over the twenty on there I’m going to dispute the whole meal with my credit vendor, so, don’t try to pull anything'.
The waitress couldn't believe it but kept her cool. She decided she would amend the tip since it was not in her place to argue.
However, she was concerned that the man's date would not realize how sleazy he really was so she hatched a plan.
The couple was still outside the restaurant dealing with the parking meter when she ran out to confront them. She told the man who was with his date that the receipt needed to be signed due to the amended tip. She made sure to mention that the tip had been changed from $100 to $20.
Initially, the man pretended that he did not know what she was talking about but he finally acknowledged the receipt and signed it.
Now, his date would know that he had been playing her all along. The date seemed to be visibly shocked while the man was angry.
The waitress was praised on social media for keeping her cool and having the foresight to expose the man's true personality in front of his date.
