When you’re a waiter, you receive immediate feedback about how well you’re doing your job in the form of tips.
In theory at least, the better you do your job or the more you do it with a smile, the more money you’ll make.
But sometimes, your tips aren’t about you — they’re about your customers. And they can make you lose faith in humanity — or restore it.
That’s what a waiter from Los Angeles, California recently found out when he received a $3.28 tip.
“Nothing more frustrating than when I get little to nothing for a tip and the customer is smiling and thanking me profusely as they exit,” the waiter wrote.
