30 Service Workers Share The Trashiest Tips They’ve Ever Gotten

Anyone who has worked in customer service and interacted with a fair share of strangers on a daily basis knows how tiring it can be. Waiters and bartenders are no exception; they are fully aware of how much resilience it takes to smile at someone while they curse at you, complaining about (trivial) things that are out of your control. The job demands character and deserves proper recognition. Yet their salary is often so low, they have to rely on tips just to get by.

Sadly, some sleazy customers use tipping just as another way of disrespecting the staff serving them. For example, people leave fake money with a picture of their preferred presidential candidate. Or put a few bills inside a full glass and place it upside down, so the only way to clean the table is to make a mess. In fact, people have developed so many of these dirty tactics, Bored Panda decided to make a list, showing what not to do when you get your check. Continue scrolling and take a look.

#1 Leaving This For Your Waitress, Who Has No Say In The Mask Mandate

Interestingly, a relatively new study has found that demanding jobs offering employees little control are among the most detrimental people’s mental and physical health.

Scientists at Southern Medical University in Guangzhou, China, analyzed the data of over 138,700 participants from six previous studies on job-related health. Using this information, they classified jobs into four groups based on control and how psychologically demanding the role: low demand and low control jobs such as manual labour were labelled “Passive,” while jobs with high control like architects and scientists were “Low Stress,” and jobs with both high demand and high control (teachers or doctors) were “Active.”

The category labelled “High Stress” had jobs that were demanding offered low levels of control. Enter waiters and bartenders

Scientists found that waiters and waitresses have a 22% higher risk of stroke on average than those with low stress jobs. The figure jumps to 33% for women when you differentiate data by gender.

The research explained that while those holding down jobs we often consider demanding jobs like architects and scientists may seem like prime candidates for boiling blood pressure, work-related stress is largely dependent on whether or not you have a job where you feel in control and respected.

A neurosurgeon may be drained after a long, difficult day at work but they probably know society understand’s the value of their labor. But imagine running in and out of the kitchen for 12 hours, bringing people food and ensuring they have a good time, only to have someone say “fu*k you” instead of leaving you a tip.
