Hannah was a seasoned server in a popular local restaurant. Over the years, she’d met countless customers – the good, the bad, and the forgettable. One regular stood out – the worst tipper she’d ever encountered. Let’s take a look.
Regular Visitor’s Habits
This man was a frequent visitor, often accompanied by friends or sometimes just by himself, perched at the bar, deeply involved in a sports game. He was usually quiet and was known to be somewhat stingy when it came to tipping.
One day, this regular customer entered the restaurant with a lady Hannah hadn’t seen before. The ambiance was different this time; instead of the bar, they chose a quiet corner of the restaurant, looking for a more intimate environment.
This table happened to be under Hannah’s care. Throughout their meal, everything went smoothly without a hitch.
A Fake Surprise
However, things took a twist when the time came to pay. As Hannah was about to present their check, she caught sight of the man placing a $100 bill on the table, nudging his date and whispering, “Watch this.”
It seemed like a deliberate act to catch Hannah’s attention, and he laughingly admitted, “You weren’t supposed to see that!” Assuming he was trying to impress his date, Hannah played along, thrilled at the prospect of such a generous tip.
The Shocking Discovery
But the excitement turned to disbelief when, after the couple left, she discovered that the $100 bill was a fake, meant for pranks! The cheek of the act left Hannah in shock.
The man had planned this deceit either to humor his date or simply out of sheer meanness. Hannah couldn’t determine whether the woman was part of this cruel joke or if she was an innocent bystander to his petty antics.
Reporting the Deceit
She informed her manager, who shared her disbelief, but Hannah decided to keep the counterfeit bill – she knew a day would come when she could finally get back at this guy.
A Chance for Retribution
Fortune favors the prepared, they say. Two weeks later, the same man returned with the same lady. Knowing the backstory, Hannah’s manager spotted him and offered her the chance to serve them again.
Seizing the Moment
Without hesitation, Hannah seized the moment. With a cheeky smirk, she mentioned her idea of returning the fake bill to the man. Before approaching their table, she fetched the counterfeit note from her car, ready for retribution.
The Perfect Moment
As Hannah greeted them, she noted the man’s increasing unease while the woman seemed blissfully unaware. Maintaining her composure, Hannah gave them the usual impeccable service until the end.
Setting the Trap
When it was time for the check, she presented the bill alongside the familiar fake $100, making sure the obviously fake “for motion picture use” was in plain view.
Hannah Gets Her Revenge
Looking straight at the man, she commented, “Hey, not sure if you remember me from last time, but I believe you forgot this, just returning it because I believed it was too much.”
The Lady’s Confusion
The woman’s confusion instantly told Hannah that she wasn’t aware of the man’s previous prank. Flustered, the guy denied any knowledge of the counterfeit bill.
Hannah feigned innocence, wished the lady a pleasant evening, and gracefully retreated.
The Surprising Outcome
On her return, she found a huge “$0.00” tip on the signed receipt. However, a real $50 bill rested on the table, conveniently where the lady had sat.
Hannah assumed that the man didn’t want to tip on his card, so they wrote obnoxiously big zeros on the tip and that the woman had left the tip. She felt on top of the world – her petty revenge had resulted in a tip actually worth her while!
A Red Flag
Whether the couple remained an item post that night or if the woman began to notice her date’s questionable antics is a mystery.
But one thing was certain: they didn’t return to the restaurant for quite some time. And as for Hannah, she hoped the lady would always remember to be watchful of those little red flags.
Beer Night Brawl
Redditors loved Hannah’s petty revenge. One user said, “As someone that has been in the industry for over 2 decades, I love this. I worked as a cocktail waitress years ago, where we wore our own clothes (no uniform) and had to carry our change and tips in a highball glass on our tray.
Along comes quarter beer night, and some jerks literally deliberately made a fist and came up under my tray hard so everything would go flying, and they had a good laugh. Not so funny when I came back with the beers and “accidentally” spilled them on them. Lost the job, but SO worth it.”
