Not leaving a tip is bad enough, but to leave an ignorant comment in place of a tip is completely uncalled for.
NBC is reporting that a waitress at Bamboo Thai Bistro in Redondo Beach, CA last week returned to the table to pick up the check from Jason Naglich. When the server, an unnamed Thai immigrant who is in her thirties, returned to pick up the signed check from Naglich and found a racist note that read “Tip for U.S. citizens only.”
The note, and receipt with the signature on it has now gone viral. Many people have pointed out that if the customer had a problem with Asian immigrants, then why go to a Thai restaurant?
One of the waitress's coworker told NBC that the waitress thought “it was her fault, that maybe she did something wrong to offend him or something.”
The waitress involved has told NBC that she is legally in the U.S. on a working visa and hopes to get a green card soon to “give her two kids a better life.
