So a woman comes in and her group runs up a $190 tab. Then, she tips me $5, but leaves me this…
So, I responded with this e-mail, and yes, I told my boss I was going to:
Thank you so much Kate for blessing me with your cellulite pamphlet. How incredibly sweet and endearing. I bet you do a lot of business this way.
Unfortunately with 3% tips I can’t afford to get these cellulite wraps, and neither can my coworkers. We actually have to live off of tips that customers give us.
What a concept. I know it’s hard for some people to grasp.
Even with the amazing discount you gave me, alas I still can’t afford it, because, well, I don’t pay my mortgage with 3% tips or with business cards from people who leave them and expect me to give them business.
Now, if I received adequate compensation, I may have been able to spread the word about your company. But again, I just can’t afford to do so.
But thank you so much for thinking of me and letting me know that you believe that under my fabulous uniform I’m laden with cellulite.
On top of the great tip, it just made my day!
