A Harrisonburg, Virginia waitress was giving the shaft during her shift recently.
Sadie Elledge works at Jess’ Lunch and during Monday’s lunch time rush, the 18-year old waitress, who was already uneasy with one particular couple got hit with the ultimate diss.
After serving the couple the meal and ringing them up for two gyros and a salad for #26.11 she got and extra tip….in bad taste.
Instead of a tip, there was a note: “We only tip citizens,” with the signature of one “Ada M. Doriot.”
“I thought it was real disrespectful,” she told a reporter during a Facebook Live interview.
Elledge, whose father was born in Honduras and mother was born in Mexico, is a U.S. citizen who grew up in Harrisonburg.
She told Rosales she didn’t make a big deal about the insult, mainly because she’s used to it.
“I’ve had people make comments like ‘Go make me a burrito,’ but that’s at school and I don’t pay attention,’” she said.
Elledge’s grandfather, John Elledge, was more shocked by the receipt.
“She was calm and collected,” John Elledge told The Huffington Post. “I was more upset.”
Elledge is an attorney, but his granddaughter did not mention the incident to him at all.
“One of my other granddaughters works at my firm as a secretary,” he said. “She told me and I flew off the handle.”
He also posted the receipt on his Facebook page, where it quickly went viral.
