Diners leave huge tip after receiving terrible service

Most people deduct from the tip when they receive bad service at a restaurant, but two diners in Iowa took a different approach.

According to their Facebook post, even though they waited 20 minutes for water, 40 minutes for their appetizer and over an hour for their entrees, they left $100 on a $66 bill.

The post had more than one million ‘Likes.’

It explains why they decided to be so generous.

    When they left that comment on the receipt, there are most that don’t have a clue what the servers go through, not that is what to expect from them, but they do work the rear ends off and when you leave less the 20% I would say that is an insult I have been there myself as well and when the customer does come first, and the server does his/ her darndest to give great service, don’r be so chincy. Switch place with them for a year and you will see a big difference in your opinion.

    In my opinion severalt hings were the waitressed . When a meal is being late one must always speak to the customer and keep them calm if possible. The water as on her and several other things. However, i hope tje note made her sit down and realize that WE must try and be OUR best regardless to whats going on around us…

    I was a server for about 10 yrs or more. It doesn’t take much to turn a bad situation into a good one. Main thing is acknowledge the customer, don’t just try to avoid them. Bravo to the customer that understands what they go through. I do also and always make sure I leave 20 to setomes 50% tips.
