A waitress in Iowa said that a customer who stiffed her left a note explaining that tips were only for “normal looking people.”
According to The Des Moines Register, Taelor May Beeck posted a photo of the customer’s receipt to Facebook.
In the area designated to write in a tip amount, the customer wrote, “Tips are only for normal looking people.”
Writing on Facebook, Beeck explained that she wanted to give a shout out “to this girl for stiffing me cuz I look like a weirdo~hope she feels better about herself.”
Beeck’s employer, Zombie Burger its parent company Orchestrate Hospitality, said that it stood behind its employees.
“Zombie Burger is a place that celebrates individuality and we think the vast majority of our customers like the fact that everybody there is unique,” Orchestrate spokesperson Chris Diebel said in a statement. “It is a real shame that someone would do this to a person in the service industry. We stand behind our staff and the fact that they celebrate who they are because that is at the core of Zombie Burger’s mission and a large part of what makes that environment special.”
