A waitress named Jessica’s response when an insecure patron gave her zero tip. Brilliant!

receipt-with-zero-tip

This story not only made me giggle a bit but it made me smile because one person knew how to respond to someone who puts other people down to lift themselves up.  It is ironic that I’ve had this experience many times (from the same person) except that I no longer speak to that person.  I wish I had a better response like Jessica Morris did.

After a long and tiring day, and serving two couples she mentions in her story, she received a $4 dollar tip from one couple and she received nothing as far as tips go from the other couple but a note on the receipt that said this:

After a long and tiring day, and serving two couples she mentions in her story, she received a $4 dollar tip from one couple and she received nothing as far as tips go from the other couple but a note on the receipt that said this:

“He’s my husband, find your own. Good luck :)”

After the experience, she went on her Facebook page to tell the story and respond to “Jenny”.

Here’s her story.

“I don’t typically talk about work this way, but this needs to be shown/addressed. Mainly because it’s hysterical but partially because I’m offended lol.

Anywho, today I had a table of 4 come in. Two couples. The one told me they were there to celebrate part of their honeymoon, which I replied, ‘oh, I just got married last month, congratulations.’

So, this lady (Jenny) and her husband place their order and she asks me what my name is. I tell her ‘Jessica’ she responds with, ‘oh, we don’t really like that name. Can we call you Jess?’ and I laughed and said, ‘yeah, you can call me anything you want. I’ll even respond with asshole.’ In which her husband laughs and proceeds to call me that throughout the whole experience we had as server and guests.

When I come back from singing “happy birthday” to another guest, the couple and company have left, and on one ticket they tipped me $4, well Jenny decided I did not deserve a monetary tip, so she wrote me a nice note, with a $0 tip saying ‘he’s my husband, find your own. Good luck. :)’

And I want to add, Jenny stole my one pen, which she knew was my last because I had apologized that I only had the one to share between the two tickets at the table.”

And this is how Jessica responded to Jenny:

“Dear Jenny,

I would like you to know, the server that was in the section across from mine, that I kept talking to and checking on throughout the time of you sitting at my table IS MY HUSBAND.

Which I found on my own, and looks better than yours. Also, I would like you to know that I’m sorry MY HUSBAND treated me to a cruise for my honeymoon and not a restaurant. As well as, MY HUSBAND would never let me feel so insecure that I would feel the need to write such a terrible note to a server and make them feel the way you have.

So Jenny, here’s a life tip for you from me, your insecurity as a woman is heartbreaking. Have pride in yourself and your relationship with YOUR husband to where you don’t need to put another down to bring yourself up. Especially a server who lives off her tips and needs them to help her husband pay bills.

Also, Jenny, I hope you like the pen, because it’s my present to you. One NEWLYWED to another.”

I think, someone just got SERVED!

Good job Jessica!  And congratulations for not letting these types of people belittle you and get you down!  Keep your head high!

I would have responded this way:
