Reacting to it, people were horrified by the man’s behaviour.
One commented: “I would feel so grimey receiving this message.”
Another said: “Total piece of s***, has probably done this in the past knowing the credit card system will deny the amount since it is higher than the bill, and they can’t put a lower amount because they have to put what is on the receipt. So he basically acted like a big spender, treated the server like s**t and got out of what should have been at least a $20 tip.”
And a third said: “Welcome to another episode of “I’m a gentleman”. I really hope the girl took the money and dipped.”
Some, however, thought the post was fake:
One said: “Yeah it’s awfully fake. But kinda funny for its ridiculousness anyway.”
Another noted: “The pen type appears different between the tip and total?”
