What? A white customer does not have the right to refuse to tip a nonwhite waitress without a sh*tstorm rising up from the anger?
In brief, a white grandfather of a young Latina waitress took a note left by a customer and went public with it. The note said, “We only tip citizens.” Grandpops, who’s married to a Mestizo woman, later had a hostile interaction with the note writer.
This story is a good example of manufactured news, not real news. Nobody cares.
Ain’t diversity grand?
Excerpt from the Daily Mail
A young waitress at a Virginia diner was left ‘rattled’ after one customer left her a hateful message rather than a tip.
Sadie Karina, 18, was working at Jess’ Quick Lunch in downtown Harrisburg Monday when a man scrawled the message ‘We only tip citizens’ on his receipt.
Karina – who was born in America – was shocked by the note, but it was her granddad who took it public to shame the nasty customer, WHSV reported.
Tips are not mandatory. The Latina is out a few bucks at most. So why is an elderly social justice warriot gotten his jockeys in a knot. It makes no sense.
Karina is an American of mixed Mexican and Honduran descent, and has rarely encountered direct racism in Harrisburg.
Still, she said, the couple gave off an odd vibe when she served them their gyros and drinks.
‘They wouldn’t talk to me,’ she said. ‘They would just nod their heads.’
But it wasn’t until she read the note at the bottom of the $26.11 receipt that she realized how hostile they were.
‘It shouldn’t even matter, I just feel like it’s rude and disrespectful,’ she said. ‘I’ve never met, I’ve never done anything to them.’
But her reaction was nothing compared to the fury her grandfather John Elledge, who is white, felt.
On Monday Elledge posted on Facebook that he’d ‘happily do the jail time’ if he ‘could get just one solid punch in to the face of the son of a b***h’ who left the receipt.
The pair later visited the diner to complain, and they ran into Elledge, whose reaction was far less relaxed than his granddaughter’s.
‘We didn’t talk much,’ Elledge told The Washington Post. ‘She was mad that I posted it … the guy, he was being really belligerent.’
He continued: ‘She was asking me why I posted it. I said “Obviously, it was an insult – your signature against my granddaughter – darn right I’m going to post it. And no apologies.”‘
Gramps is a lawyer. He should know better than to invade the privacy of other people who did nothing unlawful or even immoral. The customers don’t like Mestizos? It’s their right to feel however they want to feel.
These kinds of hostile interactions are an unfortunate side effect of diversity. Aggravations like this do cause stress and sometimes make people snap. Racially homogeneous societies do not have these problems. Stress levels are lower and people enjoy life more.
