A waitress named Taylar Cordova took to social media to share her disappointment at a customer who refused to tip her on a $187 bill. The post has since gone viral.


In the viral Facebook post, which has since been removed, Cordova posted the picture of the receipt and opened up about how she did not receive any tip from one particular customer so she took to social media to teach everyone the value of labor in America.

The screenshot of her message was later tweeted by Dinkleberg, who asked her followers for the ‘thoughts’ on Cordova’s message which she accompanied with the Facebook photograph of the receipt.

‘You’re the lowest of the low,’ she wrote in the caption, attacking the customer who did not pay her any tip. ‘Whenever you feel like it's probably fine to not tip your server, that's one more bill stacking up because they're short on money’

Cordova explained that the extra money that did not come her way would have been used for the week’s food for her family. She also argued that the tip was an absolute necessity for her as well as a daughter, but she would not get it because ‘even TWO more dollars’ was too much for the customer.


She also explained that the servers at restaurants are paid $2 to $5 every hour as per their employer, which is extremely low for feeding off a family.

‘Could you pay your bills based on that pay alone? Could you feed your family AND yourself? Because that's what happens when you choose to not tip,’ she wrote in her post.

Toward the end, Cordova has a harsh advice for anyone who is not willing to tip the waiter or waitress at a restaurant.

‘Don't even bother walking into a restaurant if you can't afford to tip,’ she wrote before suggesting that such people can always choose ‘McDonald’s down the street.’
