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.
