He stopped to eat on the route, showed the ticket indignantly and opened the debate: did he spend a lot or a little?
A truck driver decided to stop at a restaurant on the side of route 38 in Valle Hermoso, Córdoba, but what was supposed to be a moment of rest turned into a nightmare: he left outraged after seeing what he was charged for the “menu of the day”. For a plate of noodles, a wine, a soda and a dessert paid 3200 pesos. Obfuscated, he published the invoice on social networks.
In the account you can see the detail of the values: Noodles with meat, $1490; (wine) Bull, $820; Sodas $380; and a mixed flan $510. Among the users, most agreed that lunch was expensive, while some also questioned the driver for drinking while stopping on the route.
According to him Diary of Carlos PazThe incident occurred on January 7. “Only the soda has an 800% increase in its original value”, discussed about the purchase. Also, from the middle of an area near Valle Hermoso, they reflected: “It is not the first time that this type of situation is recorded during the summer season and is exposed on social networks, with the intention of unloading the impotence that they cause” .
The use of social networks to reflect, claim or be outraged by situations of all kinds within gastronomic premises is not only the power of consumers, but also of owners or employees.
In fact, a worker at the renowned Applebee’s restaurant chain in Staten Island, New York, showed a unusual message that a client left in a ticket that went viral on social networks.
Through a video posted on TikTok, the waiter himself made a peculiar claim for the attitude of customers who left him a tiny tip despite the excellent service he provided. Accompanied by the song “Oh No” by Marina and the Diamonds, the user showed the details of the ticket and asked all his followers a question: “Your thoughts?”.
The images reveal that the total consumption of the table was almost 80 dollars, but what most caught the attention of the worker is that they only left him a tip of 6.55 dollars, accompanied with an unusual message that carried with it a sad face. “You were nice. Vacations are tough right now,” they wrote in the note they placed above the ticket.
Although tipping in the United States is not mandatory, the custom is already ingrained in the country and this attitude justifiably provoked the waiter’s indignation. According to the International Experience site, the figures usually vary between a minimum of 15 and a maximum of 30 percent, however, this family’s tip only amounted to 8 percent of the total cost of the dinner.
