In today’s Los Angeles Times’ article, “Revenge of the 1%: Stiffing waiters“:

CAPTION: “Friend got this as a tip. I’d be livid.” (Photo via imgur)

Yesterday, L.A. reporters said, that they had little to report about the details of the note above.

The Laist added:

In lieu of a tip, the customer left a note that complained about tax hikes. The customer remarked that, “… as a direct result of Proposition 30 and President Obama’s insistence that I pay “MY FAIR SHARE IN TAXES.” (Reddit.com)

I wish it didn’t have to be this way for both of us.

It’s worth noting that this customer is making $250,000 at the very least, since that’s who is getting hit hardest by California’s Proposition 30 and the recent deal to avoid the fiscal cliff. We’re sure the wait staff is totally commiserating with this guy (or gal) making six digits.

There are few other details about this “tip,” and we’re not sure it’s legit. (We’ve seen stuff like this before.)

The photo was first posted to Reddit by user nickshambo, who says that he lives in Los Angeles.

UPDATE 1/10: It’s not a hoax! There’s some more solid information about a note exactly like this being left at a pizzeria in San Francisco. Read the full update.

I find that I must cut back on discretionary spending and gratuities.

I wish it didn’t have to be this way for both of us.

While this customer is makes $250,000, San Francisco is an expensive city to live in. Additionally, the customer and thousands and thousands of getting stiffed by California’s Proposition 30. “[T]he recent deal to avoid the fiscal cliff. We’re sure the wait staff is totally commiserating with this guy (or gal) making six digits,” as reported in the LAist.

So we’re not sure if this is the same instance, the same couple striking again or a terrible new trend for the livelihoods of waiters.
