Bad tippers be warned, there are servers out there in restaurants who may hunt you down if you don't deliver what they deem an appropriate tip. Servers like Victoria Liss, who has waged an all-out manhunt/smear campaign to make "yuppie scum" Andrew Meyers pay for what he left her.
Meyers moseyed into Bimbo's Cantina in Seattle last Friday night with a lady friend where Liss had the "pleasure" of waiting on them. They had some chips, guac, a double-decker pork taco, and no apparent complaints. When the bill for $28.98 came, it was bad enough that Meyers put a big old zero on the tip line, but it's what he wrote at the bottom of the bill that really pissed Liss off: "P.S. You could stand to loose [sic] a few pounds."
Oh, yes he did ... and in doing so raised the ire of Liss and subsequently mobs of Internet users after Liss set out to pay him back via public shaming.
Since he used his credit card to pay, she got his name. Then she took to the web to spread the word about what he'd done. She encountered a slight hiccup when she thought she'd found him and posted his picture and contact information on Facebook. Only after people from far and wide trashed him did she realize it was the wrong Andrew Meyers. Oops.
But she's not going to let that little slip-up stop her from seeking out the real jerk. She told The Stranger:
When you know you're gonna be a total dick lick, DON'T GIVE THE BARTENDER YOUR CREDIT CARD. We live in a social networking hub, don't shit where you eat.
She scares me a bit, but I don't blame her for being angry. Tips are how servers make their livings, and unless there's a major problem with service that can't be resolved, it's just not okay to stiff them. To go beyond that and flat-out insult them is just childish and rude, and it serves him right if he's exposed for the jerk he is. I hope he's shaking in his scummy yuppie shoes.
Are you scared to leave a bad tip for fear your server will retaliate? Do you think Liss has gone too far in her quest to track down this bad tipper?
