Restaurant receipts aren’t technically a soapbox to express emotions and thoughts, but that doesn’t stop some people.
According to Fox40, a newlywed wife used a receipt this past weekend to take her anger and jealousy out on a server. The woman, who is referred to as Jenny, was dining at a restaurant in Ohio with her husband and another couple. The newlywed couple were apparently there “celebrating their honeymoon.” Server Jessica Morris wrote in a now deleted Facebook post that she thought the night had gone smoothly, but when she saw the check, it came with a big fat zero for a tip and a not-so-kind note: “He’s my husband, go find your own. Good luck =).”
Morris says that when she sat the table and learned that they were newlyweds, she revealed that she was also a newlywed herself and thought that the table heard her. Morris explains in her Facebook post that to make money waitressing “you have to be nice, and show personality,” two things Jenny interpreted as flirting. Jenny was upset that Morris and her husband developed a small inside joke:
To make it all worse, Morris writes, on top of leaving her no tip, Jenny also stole Morris’s last pen, officially making her the worst kind of customer.
In response to the tip stiffing, Morris posted an open letter to Jenny and held back no punches in the process. Turns out a male server also working that night is Morris’ husband. She writes that he she “found [my husband] on my own, and [he] looks better than yours.” Morris then throws in a brag about how her husband treated her to a cruise for their honeymoon, not just meal at a restaurant in Ohio with another couple. Ouch.
Morris leaves Jenny with one last piece of surprisingly sage life advice: “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.” Someone needs to turn that into a poster.
