I don’t think so!
I’m not sure what other restaurants do when it comes to Dine and Dashers or Chew and Screwers, but at the restaurant I work at, when assholes like the table of seven that thought they would skip out without paying their tab did last night, they left their waitress completely broken down because she had to cover their tab.
There is what they call, a skip fund, that all the wait staff contribute to, but it only covers for a certain percentage of the charge.
So when the seven people made their order, stuffed their faces and had a shit load of alcoholic drinks, we’re looking at at LEAST $30 - $60 per person with food and drink. They decided it would be fun to just sneak out without paying.
Sure this always looks funny on the TV, like when the kids from ‘That 70′s Show’ skipped out on a meal, but that’s just TV and it’s supposed to be a comedy.
But when you do it in real life, you’re sticking somebody else with your tab…. Not so funny now is it.
Anyway, I felt really bad for this girl. She was crying for the last few hours of her shift because her paycheck is going to be docked for over $100.
It was a very busy night too and she had to keep serving tables with this burden stabbing away at her back, making for a pretty miserable night.
The thing that made this hard to watch is that the girl that was fucked over is a very Happy and Cheerful one and never had a bad attitude to anybody. I imagine her customers enjoy having her serve them. Then to see her break down like that…. well.. was pretty sad to see.
So ‘You Seven Fucking Assholes!” I Hope you enjoyed your Free meal and Booze! I just hope you get what’s coming to you in Hell!
If you ever go out dining, don’t do this shit. If you’re short on cash by mistake, talk to the manager, don’t make your server pay your tab, that shit is just wrong.
