Serving staff at restaurants have a tough job. They are constantly on their feet, deal with with rude people all day, and make less than minimum wage. They count on their tips to supplement their income, which is why it's always encouraged to tip a minimum of 10%, with 15% being the average.
However, one couple in Illinois felt their server, Samantha Heaton, didn't deserve a tip, all because of a tattoo she had on her arm. The couple left a note on the receipt, claiming her "bad tattoo" was the reason she was being jilted.
“I went above and beyond for this couple, and for them to leave that (note) kind of hurt,” Heaton told the Rock River Times. “Like, I have bills to pay too.”
The bill came to $60, and by normal 15% tipping standards, should have come to $69 with the gratuity.
So what was so offensive about Heaton's tattoo?
