Waitress Fired By US Restaurant For Accepting ₹3.6 Lakh Tip; Netizens Stand Up For Her

Working at a cafe or restaurant is never an easy task. The workers always need to be calm, patient, and well-behaved while interacting with the guests. They go the extra mile to provide exceptional service to everyone. For their efforts, we give them tips in return as a way of acknowledging their efforts and expressing our appreciation. These tips are a great motivation for them to perform well. But have you ever imagined what will happen if we pay a whopping amount of tip to any waiter or waitress working at a restaurant? Well, a similar incident happened in a US restaurant and the consequences turned out to be against that waitress.

When we hear someone getting fired from their job, the reason behind such instances is mostly their bad performance. Well, a waitress at a restaurant named Oven & Tap in the USA’s Arkansas was fired because she accepted a massive tip. Named Ryan Brandt, the waitress received a humongous tip of $4400 (almost 3.6 lakhs) from a group of guests, according to a report by NDTV. The group had more than 30 visitors and they paid the amount to Ryan and another server.

Though the hefty tip was meant for them, the restaurant had some other plans with the amount. The manager asked the waitress to take 20 per cent of the tip and share the rest with other workers and staff. But Ryan did not agree to this decision by the manager. In the end, she was fired from Oven & Tap just because she did not agree to share 80 per cent of her tip.
