Did you watch the World Cup at a bar on Tuesday? Did you tip your waitress afterward?
Hall of Famer Warren Sapp did one of those things but not the other after watching the United States play Belgium at a bar in Florida. Sapp racked up a $69.39 bill during the match and left a zero dollar tip.
Sapp took a lot of heat for the no-tip after a picture of the bill made its way onto Twitter.
Lighten up, Frances.
So he thought she was racist?
Working in the food service industry, folks will tell you that blacks to a person tip ONE DOLLAR PER PERSON. Doesn’t matter if the meal was 50 bucks. ONE DOLLAR tips are the standard here for black folks.
Then they complain and scream racism if there’s any hint they aren’t having their a**es kissed.
The poor tipping of blacks led to a Denny’s shakedown. The waitress ($2 an hour) didn’t want to wait on them for free. Jesse and Al shook them down for being ‘racist.’
That’s not much food for Warren Sapp. He must have eaten before he left the house.
She couldn’t win either way - if she “Sir’d” them all evening they’d have bitc*ed because they thought she was pandering.
saying “boys” to black males is fine unless they are the type that see racism in everything.
safer to just say “guys”.
Children no matter how old.
I can verify. My youngest daughter worked in a restaurant in Oklahoma while she was in nursing school. The minimum wage for ‘tipped’ workers was $3.63. Not one Black ever tipped her more than 5%.
Insecure people are easily offended.
He’s just using this as an excuse. I worked as a taxi driver, waiter and food delivery guy. Guess which race rarely if ever tips? That’s right, the black race. Anyone who’s ever worked in the service industry, am I right or what? I’ve heard every excuse in the book from them, and this is just one more example “She called me boy” Yeah OK you cheap ass overpaid mofo, F U.
She’s lucky she got any tip. Here in New York they NEVER tip, and if they do it’s usually like a penny or a nickel.
When pressed for an explanation, he’ll claim head trauma and sue the NFL.
what a ridiculous idiot
Yep, and a lot of them are a total pain in the butt. They want extra this and that. It’s just a game to them but if you don’t do it, they play the race card. They have no trouble complaining about everything as well.
He played in tampa and has a very bad reputation here. Was always nasty to fans.
Same here in New York city, cabbies will not pick up blacks because not only do they NOT tip, they also do NOT pay the full fare. BLACK cab drivers will not pick up blacks! I use to drive a cab 10 years ago, all the time they would bitch and complain and then under pay me and bitch and complain about that if I didn’t accept their 3 dollars for a 6 dollar fare. It’s the slave mentality that they are taught by liberals: The country owes them restitution for slavery even though a small fraction of them have any roots at all to US slaves.
so are “entitled” people.
Brits & blacks. Very. Bad. Tippers.
Well,*I* tip, and unless I receive crappy service, I tip generously, even though I’m retired and on limited income - and I’m a guy.
Oh yeah, when I use to drive a cab, right away as soon as they go in they would go into the rants “This seat is filthy, the AC don’t work, it smells in here, you are taking the long route, you are going too fast, blah blah blah” then they would give me $7 bucks for a $11 buck fare and pull the race sh*t if I complained. They get that ALL from liberals who constantly tell them they deserve social programs, and total restitution forever and ever for slavery even though a very small fraction of them have any actual roots at all to slaves. Liberals play them for the victim so THEY can enslave them for votes.
I’m not a mermaid. I’m a merMAN!
Larry Elder has said that blacks (not including Larry, of course) are frequently lousy tippers and that’s why they frequently receive lousy service.
Are you a black guy?
Warren Sapp is another prime example showing that possession of money cannot buy class. He likely NEVER HAD CLASS and will likely never have it in the future.
Tip culture in the UK is very different. Worked in NI for many years. As a noob in Derry, I left a tip on the bar and was chased down the street bar the barman and my tip was returned.
They see it as an insult as if we view them as unable to make a good living at their job.
If you received good service, you didn’t leave money on the rail, you handed them enough cash to purchase a drink for after hours consumption.
I lived in Florida when he played for the Bucs. Big star in the Tampa Bay area. I guess he’s not getting his fat butt kissed like he did in those days. Mighty big chip on his shoulder.
If I call him a pecker head that can’t be racist since it is usually reserved for southern white folks?
Some (small p@@@@@@) over-sensitive entitle minded men(?) of a certain persuasion object to the term “boys.” Especially ones with certain sexual proclivities.
No, but I’m a guy.
Been in that biz. Have friends in that biz. While there are exceptions, your statements are generally correct. That is why my African American friends in the biz HATE waiting on other African Americans. Again, with exceptions.
“Guys”? Nope. Too “white.” Seen that.
As a limo driver (back in the day) had a black doctor. Guess what, no tip.
Anyone who knows anything about restaurants and bars knows blacks are the cheapest, most rude people in the world. Ask any bartender, waiter or waitress.
I've been to functions where there were black and white people at the same long table in the restaurants. Blacks would always make a fuss, act stupid, order extra drinks etc. I was embarrassed to be sitting with them. Then when the check comes around they throw in $5 or $10 dollars for their $30 meal and 3 drinks. You have to have another black person talk to them and do the addition for them and tell them to shut up and stop embarrassing the whole table. If a white person does it they make it into a racial dispute.
What bar was that? I ran a bar in Derry for 8 years. There is no tipping culture but frequently you’d buy the barman a drink, which amounted to the same thing as he’d simply put the amount of cash in a jar beside the till.
I worked as a waiter in the US and was surprised at the end of my first month when I got a pay-check, I had thought that waiters simply lived off tips, which was what I was doing, and had no idea there was an actual wage paid by the restaurant too, foolish of me but that’s what I thought.
Blacks weren’t great tippers but not too bad either, they at least left something unlike French Canadians who always thought a Canadian quarter was a sufficient reward.
I might also add that I only ever twice saw a family pause before eating to say grace when I worked as a waiter, on both occasions the families were black.
I am not a waitress but I order a lot of delivery food. If it is under $30, I tip $10. My grandson who used to work at a pizza place, says I have made friends for life. If I can order delivery food, I can also afford a good tip. Most are young people and they deserve being treated nicely. I do not understand this no tipping nonsense.
It’s basically a good reason to get rid of the tip system.
So’s working at McDonald’s, but you don’t feel the need to tip them, do you? Why not? They’re servin ya food. But no, society says don’t tip these guys over here, but tip these guys over here. That’s BS.
I was just thinking about this tonight.... I’ve had tragedy during my years of life on this earth. I have had to come to terms with it and accept God’s plan for me. How do you use your great-grandmother/father’s grievances (being sold into slavery by their own race) to eternally rationalize your perception of injustice?
Depends maybe on where you are. The wife and I tipped frequently in Ireland when vacationing there a few years ago. Nobody ever returned our tips.
You are quoting part of the dialog from Reservoir Dogs.
You are correct, you win a cookie.
My step-daughter worked as a waitress in pizza places and restaurants for a number of years. She said the worst tippers were old people. The best tippers were single men. Or men in groups without their wives.
So you want to get rid of a true merit system because of a certain ethnic group?
