I work at an upscale bar, a dive bar, and a family run Italian restaurant. I have been in the restaurant business for almost twenty years and I have never encountered such stupidity. Anyhow, I usually get asked for a “dip cup” or a “spit cup” in the bars, but tonight I was asked at the Italian restaurant.
I prepared the cup like I normally do… a beverage napkin stuffed to the bottom of a cup. I always ask the person who needs the cup to dispose of the cup on their way out. Never have I had a person complain about throwing their spit cup away. Well, tonight was different. I dropped the cup off that I prepared so neatly and asked the gentleman to dispose of it on his way out. His stupid ass f*** girlfriend replies, “We have never been asked to do that.”
Well, in my mind I’m thinking, “You stupid f*** white trash person. Who would ask for a “dip cup” in a restaurant?” Anyhow I reply back, “Well, I have been in the restaurant industry long enough that I don’t need to throw your spit away.”
I guess that offended the white trash girlfriend because this is what she left me on the receipt which I kept: “We are locals who come here once or twice a week. My husband is an amazing tipper which you will see from this check. However, we were offended by being told to take our cup with us. Any server who claims being in the industry as long as you have should know NOT to offend the customer who PAYS YOU!” Can you believe this???
Well, I couldn’t control myself which I regret, and I did call her a bitch. Long story short, I left the 20% tip in an envelope labeled “Dip Cup Couple” so next time they come in they can have their money back.
No, I didn’t throw the cup away. I did call out to them as they were leaving that they forgot the cup. Stupid bitch moans and takes the cup out of my hands (which I was holding in a cloth napkin) and slams the spit cup on the bar and yells what awful service she had.
I have worked at this restaurant for almost 20 years and never have I experienced such stupidity for a white trash bitch. I hope they come up and get their tip ($20) because I sure don’t need it from them. Again, why would anyone want to throw someone else’s spit cup away??? So RUDE!
