HOAX: Banker Leaves 1% Tip
HOAX ALERT: Just when you think people can't get any lower, we find out that the asshole in question is some jackass trying to make a [expletive] point about the 1%. Sure, there are dicks among the 1%, but this kind of juvenile crap doesn't help our arguments. Click here for the hoax story >>
[Yahoo] Just when you may have thought the ongoing battle between the 99% and the 1% was dying down, it may have been reignited. A wealthy banker left a $1.33 tip on a $133 lunch at the True Food Kitchen restaurant in Newport Beach, California.
To add insult to injury the word "tip" was circled on the receipt, and the banker wrote "get a real job" on the bill. The picture of the receipt was taken and uploaded to the blog Future Ex-Banker by a person who was dining with the anonymous banker. As expected, the blog received a lot of attention and has now been taken down. The author of the blog wrote, "mention the 99% in my boss' presence and feel his wrath. So proudly does he wear his 1% badge of honor that he tips exactly 1% every time he feels the server doesn't sufficiently bow down to his holiness."
