I Hope Waiters and Waitresses in the Shreveport-Bossier City Area DO NOT Have This Happen TO Them

On the surface this looks like an awesome story… There was a great story this summer about a waitress in Scranton, Pennsylvania who got a $3,000 tip on a $13 bill.

The waitress’s name is Mariana Lambert, and it happened in June.  She was blown away and said she’d use the money to pay some bills and take her family on a vacation. 

This guy named Eric Smith left the tip and said it was part of a “Tips for Jesus” thing — whatever that means… Mr. Smith turned around and DISPUTED THE CHARGE with his bank – so this small restaurant had to give the money back. Kudos to them for not making the waitress give the money back, they’re not suing the dude.

There are some shady people out there, but, I hope this doesn’t happen to any restaurant staff at any restaurants in the Shreveport-Bossier area.. just plain rude!

Side note — this restaurant was mentioned on an episode of “The Office” once!
