The 12 Customers Every Restaurant Employee Would Like To Strangle

11. The Cheapskate


This type of person will either nickel-and-dime their entire meal, or even worse, order the most expensive thing on the menu, stiff the waitress, and write a cutesy little note that they didn’t have enough money left to tip.

Spoiler alert: Both those types of people suck.

So, if you can’t afford to tip, here’s a money-saving life hack—eat at home! What a novel idea, right?

We all know the tipping system is majorly flawed, but until restaurant employees get paid a living wage, it’s not optional. So shut up and pay up.


12. The Sexual Predator


Yea, there’s meat on the menu — but your server is not a Rib Eye! So keep your eyes to yourself.

Better yet, keep your hands to yourself!

Why people think it’s okay to grope and sexually harass their server, we have no idea. But if you’re one of those people, you suck. Ditto if you leave your phone number as your “tip.”
