Victoria Liss VS. the Receipt Creep: Capitol Hill Debacle

Posted by on Mon, Oct 10, 2011 at 9:38 AM

EDITOR'S NOTE, OCT 12: Because we haven't been able to talk to the person who left the receipt to get his side of the story, we've deleted certain details and identifying information from this post.

Over the weekend while bar tending at Bimbo's Cantina, Victoria Liss received a less than generous tip after serving a man and woman chips & salsa with guacamole and one double decker pork taco. Not only was the gratuity 0%, the customer added a personal message that has a number of Seattle area service industry workers infuriated. Here's what Victoria had to say:

There's been some buzz the past couple of days about a receipt that you received while working at Bimbo's. What is your position there?

I usually am a cocktail waitress at Cha Cha, so I am used to off-the-cuff comments at work. However, this week I was filling in for my friend Al who bar tends at Bimbo's Cantina above Cha Cha every Friday. Al went camping in Croatia. Al just won employee of the month, and I was more than happy to cover the shift until...

When did the incident happen?

Friday, sometime after 10 pm.

What exactly was written on the receipt?

An "0" written in the tip line and the "P.S. You could stand to loose [sic] a few pounds" added just to boost my self esteem.

Screen_shot_2011-10-12_at_10.54.56_AM.png

Can you recall the events that may have led this person to behave this way?

There are two things that led him to behave like that in my mind. He came in and I was, though I regret it now, very nice to him. Also, he ordered a taco and I recommended he get a double decker (he wasn't drunk and I knew a taco wrapped in a bean taco would keep him undrunk). His lady friend called it "carb hell" so apparently it was a very offensive menu suggestion. He was dressed like "Boy" from Little Monsters with Fred Savage. I remember thinking when she put her gold Kate Spade purse on the bar, "I'm fucked."

After the word of the incident spread so quickly, what else has happened?

Um, I found a picture of him, I found his phone number I think, I have just gotten a lot of commiseration from my fellow Capitol Hill service workers who see this shit from the newer yuppie crowd all the time. When you know you're gonna be a total dick lick, DON'T GIVE THE BARTENDER YOUR CREDIT CARD. We live in a social networking hub, don't shit where you eat.

Do you feel like this situation has gotten out of hand or everything is deserved so far?

I think that aside from a few accidental emails to another guy with the same name, no. I have the biggest tits on the hill since Lindy West moved. Calling me fat is an amateur move. This guy is a bully. One of Lisa Dank's friends complained that everyone was jumping down this guy's throat and being mean just like they were to his friend. Um, Lisa Dank stole a dog, and this guy harassed a bartender. If you are an asshole, you better delete your Facebook or change your name.

Have you received any response from the person?

Honestly, after posting photos of him and his love letter, I worked all weekend and have a pretty full in box. I do have some messages from guys with the same name who are mad, so sorry to all of the sweet [people out there with the same name].

Victoria believes she has located the customer in question on Facebook. I've contacted him to get his side of the story, but he has yet to respond.

@WinTard TORT and PUNITIVE damages? Bwahaha. Please don't make legal comments. Actually, better yet, please DO make more of these comments. I need a good laugh.

By the way, you've accused her of crimes of moral turpitude in a public venue that third parties can and most likely will take as true. You do realize that's libelous speech right? (That means printed defamation just in case your knowledge of legal terms is about as bad as your grasp of tort remedies.)

You specifically told her to enjoy her new reputation? Hmm, yeah. I'd watch what you were saying there buddy.

Seems many haven't heard the other side of the story. Below is a review by the 'yuppie scum' who was so insulting to such a nice bartender. Its from Yelp. There are numerous reviews there stating how awful the service is. Ignored by staff, is a term used in many of them.
I, also, read an older article about this woman getting two men arrested for sexual harrasment, against a gay friend of hers, they were incarcerated, had to post bail, then she and her friend decided that, maybe, they'd accused the wrong men. Sound familiar. This woman is the true scum, and there is, documented, evidence all over the place, including her Facebook page. Who cares how much you weigh. You're still a bitch.

Yelp review:
My girlfriend and I had without question the worst restaurant/bar experience of our lives at this place over the weekend. I don't even know where to begin.

I've been to the attached bar called Chacha drinking with friends a few times in the past, but had never tried Bimbos. I had heard they had some decent mexican-ish food so my girlfriend and I stopped by to grab a bite.

From the moment we sat down we felt like we had just entered a clubhouse we weren't invited to. The woman who was supposed to be serving us seemingly ignored us for 25 minutes. Granted it was somewhat busy, but she certainly saw us. A few of her friends were there and she kept chatting them up... all the while shooting us glances as we uncomfortably tried to get her attention.

After close to a half hour she finally asked if we wanted any drinks. We told her our drink order and she immediately walked off before I could even get a chance to ask about the food menu... I wasn't sure if it was going to be another half hour until we had a chance to place our food order so I kind of shouted "wait!" as she was fleeing to fill our drink order. Bad move, I guess... she turned around looking more than a little peeved that I had interrupted her. I asked if we could place a food order before she left... she slapped a menu in front of me and I quickly ordered a couple tacos. She suggested we upgrade to "double decker" tacos (which apparently are held together by beans... which my girlfriend isn't a fan of)... We declined the upgrade. The waitress looked at us like we were fools... "It's free"... My girlfriend responded with a joke about counting her calories... the waitress countered with some snarky comment about "you could use a little extra weight" (in retrospect this might have been a compliment, but my girlfriend has struggled with anorexia and didn't appreciate it)... We again declined and once again the waitress stormed off looking agitated. Honestly considered leaving at this point.

About 10 minutes go by and we still haven't received our drinks. Waitress is back to chatting with her friends. I flag her down and she literally rolled her eyes made a hand gesture as if to say "yeah, yeah simmer down... one second"... I reminder her about our margaritas... she huffs off, and brings them a few minutes later.

Finish our drinks... wait... wait... wait... no food. Wait some more... wait... Consider flagging down the waitress again, but think better of it. Luckily after close to an hour our tacos come out...

Double decker tacos. Wait, what?! ... Honestly wouldn't have been a big deal, but my girlfriend has a serious problem with beans and she's pretty angry at this point... so she starts giving the waitress a little attitude back and complains about the double decker tacos. The waitress looks at my girlfriend like she's utterly insane. Says something to the extent of "it's free... why are you complaining?" (meaning the "double decker" upgrade) ... It isn't what we ordered! ... I somewhat intervene and say it's no big deal... we can just peel off the "double decker" layer and the beans, but I obviously understood my girlfriend's frustration. Waitress responds with "good idea" and begins to walk off... I stop her once again and order our last couple drinks and ask to close out our bill (which to her credit she promptly retrieved for us... though clearly begrudgingly)...

Never once did she offer an apology. Never once did she offer to waive part of the bill for the mistake. In fact, she actually overcharged us by putting the wrong drinks on our bill... I didn't have the strength to really fight her on it (and didn't want to wait another hour to get it resolved). Horrible service. Horrible Experience. It was almost like "you idiots should be lucky I even served you at all"...

1 Star. However, If 10 dollar margaritas, free (mandatory) double decker upgrades and dehumanizing service are your thing... Go for it!

Wintard, you don't have a clue.

The original Drew Meyer doesn't have a case at all, and everyone knows it.

And what says Victoria Liss "didn't scribble that note" is that she fingered the wrong target later on!!! (how dense can you be?) (had it been, oh, say, the Andrew Meyer who used to make fun of her in 4th grade, she wouldn't have randomly fingered some guy in Texas for the offense)

Finally, your continued stupidity is on exhibit here based on the fact that you still believe this HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE amount of the TIP!!!

Everyone everywhere who has any common sense knows this so-called 'witch hunt' has zero to do with the amount of Drew Meyer's tip. (FYI, WinTard, a "witch hunt" suggests a world of make believe, as there were no "witches" back in Salem so many years ago)

Drew Meyer very clearly instigated that which is soon to come his way, and society all around knows there wasn't an ounce of make-believe involved. We've all seen the evidence.

As for the rest of you... get out there and hunt-down that ass-clown Drew Meyer and his trashy girlfriend.

Victoria Liss: What a stupid bitch!

Bimbo's bar you lost TONS of customers thanks to the negative publicity. Serves you right for hiring such nincompoops!

Sleep easy at night? Now that both of you are liable for release of confidential information, defamation and slander, involving TORT and PUNITIVE damages. Involving TWO individuals, one completely undeserving from all the hate mail and reputation distortion he received.

You got to love these tabloids like the Seattle Weekly for their sensationalist journalism without any due diligence to journalistic integrity, such as verifying the facts, and perhaps such a waitress didn't deserve any tip? And who says she didn't scribble that note?

Same goes for all the shitheads who blew up this non-issue into a witch hunt!

Tipping is an honor and privilege to be received for good service, not a right for poor service and attitude.

But what goes around, comes around. Enjoy your new and real reputation Victoria Liss!

She needs new employment away from paying customers. She obviously doesn't know how to act herself. How completely stupid!

When I was a waitress, I once got a zero tip with a note suggesting I should smile at customers. An annoying but not unfair criticism, as I wasn't having fun and it showed all over my face. (That's why I'm not a waitress anymore.)
That sucked for me but still seemed like an okay thing to do, as the criticism was relevant to the job, and to the non-tip. This is totally different. To the customer, as well as the sloggers saying "Well, she is fat:" Other people's bodies are not your business. This is no different than walking up to a stranger at a bus stop and telling them to lose weight. Completely unacceptable, whatever the level of service.

I read the Yelp review and have to say it sounds quite similar to the one and only time I went to Bimbo's, the difference being that I left after 15 minutes of trying to get the server's attention. Me: "Could I get a menu?" She: "I'll be with you in a minute." Tick, tock, tick, tock. Me "Hi, could I get a menu?" She "YEAH, I SAW YOU, I SAID I'D BE WITH YOU IN A MINUTE." Tick, tock, tick, tock. Me (now at the bar) "Hey, I'm looking to order some food, could I grab a menu?" She: "Fine, WHATERVER, I SAID I'D BE WITH YOU." Me, leaving. She: "WHAT THE FUCK? WHATEVER." There were only two other tables, but a gaggle of her friends up at the bar. Fuck that place, and fuck that waitress.

I would ask that the tables be turned and see if Mr. Meyer would like that ( or any other negatively spirited comment) to be written about him. Don't forget that this is the 100th time you've had someone be ignorant to you while working!

I have been in the restaurant business as employee and owner since I was 15 years old, which is now 31 years. The ability to handle difficult customers with class is a skill and art given to too few in this trade. All kinds of folk will always walk in the door. It is the nature of the business. Is is a sad reflection of the majority of North American wait staff who fail to cultivate any self respect. Getting a tip is a gamble, and an honor, but not a right. I always have great respect for staff who can let a jackass customer with a smile and style, while never demeaning oneself or your place of work. It is called "professional". In this case Ms. Liss, the word "Bimbo" says it all, if they still employ you. They shouldn't. And I'm see how at this point you are the biggest tit on the hill, times two.

Of course not... because even if she identified the wrong guy (how do you do that if you saw the guy face to face for an hour?) and even if she is racist, and even if she makes fun of people that are overweight or drug addicts or poor etc... of course not... because now its old news.... and the only one that pays for this whole thing is an innocent man that received hate mail because the a malicious self absorbed waitress.

Maybe she wrote the note herself? hmmmmmmmm

I was on vacation in Seattle and unfortunately found myself eating lunch at this place. $5 for a burrito and a Bud Light, can't beat that deal. Well, I got a shitty burrito and the beer never made it to my table. When I asked the bartender for it, he ignored me. Hipster douchebag central.

The only positive to this place is the enormous bathroom. You can really stretch your legs if you need to take a dump.

I do not make much money at this point, but I always tip, and very well. Not because I want to be treated like royalty, not because all servers I've ever had were wonderful, but because I like to and want to, and because it feels good to know that bad attitude from the wait staff does not force me to feel like I need to be snarky back at them by not tipping; that would make me susceptible to weaknesses such as low tolerance, would show them that they got to me, and only make them more unhappy. If the wait staff is less than polite, they are often unhappy in their job. Telling them to work somewhere else is not the solution! It is not personal, and I am nice to them through all of their grimaces, glares, mean stares, rudeness, etc., because that is who I am. I do not need to become like them to show them that they are rude. Being nice usually does the trick! Being polite despite bad service can really leave the rude server wondering what their own problem is, and that is satisfaction for me.

The comment about her weight is probably a step too far. However I expect that she was a crap waitress and that is why she didn't get a tip. I find it surprising that in parts of the world where a tip is expected by waitresses, such as the US and Canada, they are so rude to their customers. For some reason people seem to put up with the awful service here and still give them a 15-20% tip.

Gosh every one as a right to there own opinion. Also note she state what she thought the guy dressed like. How do we know she didn’t say it to him? Maybe that why he didn’t like her. Now that aside. They are both wrong but, the 1st amendment allows them to speak their mind. If people keep this kind of BS, up we will May lose our first amendment. Also it's against any company polices to give out or post private information. She has no idea the damage she has done to all those with that name. She may get sued. They were both rude.

so Victoria, is this the first time this has happened to you? From your conversation, seems like you were already expecting crap by telling yourself,"I'm fucked"... So it seems like all you needed was attention and sympathy from society.. I'm sure you have been called worse things than "loose some weight".. I haven't seen your picture and I'm sure you are beautiful, but regardless, why not tell us the real truth of WHY you went this far other than may be the owner of this bar getting into some legal trouble due to your actions..

Wow zero for a tip. Well welcome to the club sweet cheeks. When you like I work in an industry of customer servive sometimes we don't get tipped. Its a part of life so get over it. What he wrote on the message was not cute but so what? Don't lose any sleep over it. The other day I had several people not tip me. So what? It happens. Not the first times I've gotten stiffed -- probably won't be the last. 1 was particularly frustrating to me because this woman asked me to tape over a tear in her bag and in doing so I cut my finger with the tape machine -- my fault yes but even so at least she could given me something other than a thank you.

Huge Support for NO TIP MOVEMENT!!!
Pay your own damn employees USA!

do you pay those poor people at fast food restaurants tips? They earn significantly less than those who earn tips on average.

GET some facts, managers (typically high school grad) at restaurants are earning more than you think (Denny's: $5000 a month) they certain can afford to pay their own staffs.

do you pay those poor people at fast food restaurants tips? They earn significantly less than those who earn tips on average.

GET some facts, managers (typically high school grad) at restaurants are earning more than you think (Denny's: $5000 a month) they certain can afford to pay their own staffs.

VL sounds like a Type A. IMAGINE THIS --- Maybe service her to the customer sucked and the customer overheard her making comments on someone else's weight while gossiping. She could have been catty, talking crap about another under or over weight person. Maybe he gave her a little pot calling the kettle black. OCCAM'S RAZOR. I don't know how many times I've experienced bad service by those that just want to sit around and talk instead of work.

It's funny how nobody mentioned @46 and some of the above who in regards to this mess see Liss as the piss in the picture.
A tip is a generous offering, it's not mandatory. The guy might be an asshole, yeah he is for leaving a note like that, it doesn't mean though you can smear his name across the internet.
Taking someone's credit card in any place of business is considered a confidential document, meaning displaying anything more than the total/tip and comment on the receipt is by legal grounds criminal.
If I were that asshole, Andrew Meyer, I would sue this Victoria Liss for everything she has, including all he tips from that night.
I have worked as a waiter before and I have seen my fair share of asshats but it never crossed my mind to take people's names and make a cry story on the internet. As a waiter or bartender, you can't take people's word for any more than a grain of salt. If people's demeanor or words bother you that much, quit your tip-expecting-ungrateful-job and work at a daycare center.

86, 89, and Lee- you are so right. Hilarious. #66's comments were hidden on my end but I think appropriate responses were given. And the guy who corrected "Capital" Hill- awesome. It's not like the title of this article is a dead giveaway on how to spell Capitol.

This entire communication is so predictable. The number of haughty responders who have jumped in to give their 2 cents-worth are the same ones with incorrectly- spelled commentary. Seriously? This is as stupid as the total dick who left a scathing note with no tip- the note itself made him look like an idiot. If you can't spell words such as "lose" or "could," maybe you aren't mature enough to dine at a restaurant where grown ups eat.

For those who think it's appropriate to leave $0 as a tip- please stick to drive-through places only. Wait staff and alike are not paid minimum-wage [or more] salaries. They rely on tips as part of their earnings. Unless something obscene occurs, you tip at a minimum of 15%. End of story.

And no, there is nothing wrong with Kade Spade purses. There is something wrong with women who go out to eat with a man and pay no f***ing attention to what's going on around them. If I was out with a man who left a $0 tip AND a rude note to the waitress, I would have thrown down $5, scribbled out the note, and told my date to find his own way home.

Good for (not fat) Victoria for outing this ass's behavior. Maybe now more people will keep their rude, stupid, inaccurate mouths shut. At least on paper.

I don't know the situation of This female bartender, but customers will always rule for we come for the service with our hard-earned money. Let me be the first human being to say that customer services in America with young people controlling is foul and filthy. I only go to restaurants and bar once a blue moon now. As a customer service person, this female bartender is also mean to take a business receipt and post it on the Internet to fight for her personal reason, thus can damage the bar's reputation to serve customers for sales. Now she even damaged all the names of those who share the same name as that male customer who wrote her a mean message. America will go down once it's excellent customer service business reputation Goes down. The customer can sue that female bartender for taking a business receipt to fight for her own personal reasons.

Her comment "When you know you're gonna be a total dick lick, DON'T GIVE THE BARTENDER YOUR CREDIT CARD." says it all: I am a loser who will do inappropriate things with your personal information because I don't like you. Like many of the commenters on yahoo, I agree she should face criminal charges for what she did with his receipt. Stupid khunt, tips are earned, not automatic. You get a tip when you deserve it, and you clearly didn't. I hope they fire you.

An abortion of a story... from both sides. Of the comments I've read, all I can come up with is everyone thinks their POV is the correct one to have, which is totally cool. I see that some people can relate because they're the yuppie Capitol Hill invaders, the resident invadees, former servers, people who have rec'd bad service in Cap Hil, etc...

From the outside looking in, it looks like a bunch of people grasping at straws, trying to validate thier POV with perpetuated stereotypes. Sad because I love Capitol Hill and everything about it. Even sadder because I think everyone has a great point.

In all of this is feel the worst for the mis-identified patron, if he wasnt the one who left the note.

I have Zero tipped on a credit card, but only because I've left a cash tip. I've heard horror stories of restaurant owners/managers stiffing wait staff from credit card tips...so I've left cash. However, the comment on the receipt says alot about the jerk and his bimbo girlfriend. I'm 53, have never worked in the food/beverage industry, and have the utmost respect for all you do, all you put up with, and the physical demands of your jobs. Thanks...I do appreciate those that wait on me and my husband. So...having said that, would you hospitality workers please address my comment about leaving a cash tip. Is this ok, would you rather have it added on to the check? Do restaurant owners/managers divide the tips up correctly? (I don't know how those POS systems work, and if they even take into consideration tips left on tickets...)

So, this man is not only rude and uncouth, he is also a thief? Never mind the math of this. Why not have him arrested, press charges for robbery for taking the tip money? Oh sure, it’s not much but it would sure bring him up short to have the police involved. Whatever his job is, his bosses would certainly find out, not that they don’t already know, what kind of A&$ he really is.
If you have his picture, why not post it? Certainly you would be running the possibility of defaming his name or reputation, but hasn’t he already done damage to that himself?

While growing up, I lived next to an old man named Adolf. He was of Austrian descent and moved over to North America when he was a small child. He was in his 80s and had a huge property at the end of our road. On his own dime, he built a bunch of massive dog pens and took in numerous dogs that the local humane society couldn't. I always looked up to this man for being so kind to animals that didn't have homes, or were refused homes by owners who couldn't handle dogs. He always let my friends and I go into the pens and play with the animals and this was one of the best memories of my childhood.

This is a pretty shameless attempt to advertise for the Cha Cha/ Bimbo lounge. This paper plugged the bar last week. Now this week they are making up a false incident to garner support for the bartender and get some viral advertising in to boot. That's why they claim Andrew Meyers works at Microsoft (he doesn't, why they are using a random picture of some guy from the internet, and why after being informed of their mistake they keep the story up.

NONE OF THIS EVER HAPPENED. ITS A VIRAL AD CAMPAIGN.

pretty unfortunate what happened to this person, but you always have to keep in mind that there are a lot of individuals walking around with some type of mental illness, what if the guy had aspergers, or schizophrenia. You always have to give the customer, the benefit of the doubt.

I am sorry, can someone please show me where he wrote 26.98 on the receipt and crossed off the 28.98 - is that on a different receipt or something - because the one posted above has a total due of 29.80, a zero written in the tip section (the zero has a slash through it to indicate it is a zero, not an "o", which is not an uncommon thing to do - I write my zero's the same way because it makes it easier for my job, and it has carried over into real life) and then a total of 28.98 written below it. Is everyone just reading his writting wrong - it looks very obvious to me that he wrote 28.98 in because both 8's are the same (stupid looking but still obviously the number 8). Can you please post the receipt where he tried to change the amount - that would make this article make a lot more sense.

It's clear to me that this is a simple misunderstanding. This Meyer fellow is clearly a Brit, and was possibly upset that his drink had more than 2 ice cubes in it. That's why he wrote "you could stand to loose a few pounds". He was simply adjusting his bill. He forgot that in the states the monetary system is based on dollars, not pounds sterling. And if he was insulting your weight, he would've said "I reckon you could stand to loose a stone or two, mate". Also, anyone in the industry, or anyone who has traveled abroad knows that Europeans, including the Brits, don't tip. In the UK, and Europe service industry employees are paid a livable wage by their employers and don't rely on incentive-based subsidies from the customer. I hope this helped sort out this little misunderstanding.

@94, I think you're right. This paper just shamelessly plugged The Bimbo last week. Who cares if some dyke bartender pissed off a guy till he stiffed her/insulted her weight? I'm trying to figure out why all these hipster fucks think this is particularly exciting... Not like they would actually confront the offender in person, I mean this is Seattle after all... Oh yea, The Stranger even speculated he worked at Microsoft randomly.... I checked the Global Address List today, there are no Andrew Meyers, contractor or otherwise working there as of this moment... Its funny, for as hardcore as these people claim to be, the second you aren't in their facebook circle, you're not quite sure what influence they actually wield over you/anyone/the world in general. Yea I'm randomly judging people now but after seeing the bartender in question and reading this post-op nonsense, I have no doubt that she probably acted in a manner to deserve not only no tip, but a personal insult as well on top of it all.

Congratulations, now when outsiders come to capitol hill (small ch) they will remember what douche baggery exists in the cha cha/bimbo and avoid it... lest we earn the public scorn of some uppity dyke on facebook who thinks droopy tits makes her a phenomenon and her 130 like minded, unemployed, soap averse, knee jerk, ignorant excuses of human waste, friends.

Hey BTW, moving to ch next month so my commute is shorter. Can't wait to meet all of you.

Haha, anyone who has ever been a server/waitress/hostess/bartender knows that judgement is normal. You know what to expect from certain people, and yeah, 1/10 might not be that particular brand of asshat but the majority are exactly as predicted. That doesn't mean you treat them differently, it means you've been doing your job long enough to know when a troll table is in your section and that you aren't getting tipped. Because unlike the rest of the people who work and get paid normal amounts of money, or god forbid something resembling minimum wage, that's pretty much your livelihood sitting there silently (or not) hating you for no good reason.

What 'real Andrew' did was inexcusable. the 0$ tip would have been a legitimate way to demonstrate your feelings about a tip. Instead he was [insert preferred term from above.] As much as we don't like it's freedom of speak is still (mostly) a right in this country. That why you can go about ranting an raving (also see above.) The later carelessness however is downright illegal. And the Andrew that is taking the wrap right now will also be eligible for a settlement from Victoria, and the Cha Cha. I don't agree with @71 however. This does invalidate the arguments, as you have now crossed the realm of free-speech in to inciting hate, and slander of a good name (the Texan Andrew.) Welcome. You have become that which you are against. Working in the tech industry doesn’t make you a dick, having money doesn't make you a dick - only being a dick makes you a dick. And you kind of shot yourself in the foot there. Moving to the hill doesn’t make you a dick either. You moved to the hill too (unless you were born on the hill.) Do you know what Capitol Hill was like 80 years ago? The place has changed and will continue to change. Next it will be central district, then white center.. I don't agree with it or disagree with it. As one cool dude said: "conflict arises from the disparity from what is and what one wants it to be."

I bar tend in 4 different Bars/Venues in Seattle. This shit is the norm. Sure "we should stand up against it" but really it's just as easy as throwing the receipt away and moving on to the next customer. I get 1 asshole for every 30 incredibly nice/funny/well tipping customers. Who gives a shit about this guy? Honestly I see more shitty industry service than I see assholes. Tuff guy bouncers, bartenders that only serve their friends, waitress' that fuck up orders then blame you, bad tippers etc. I've found that the "Bridge and Tunnel" types tend to tip better in general. If you don't want these people at Capitol Hill Establishments have a note at the door requiring a photo ID and a few pieces of mail insuring that they live in the neighborhood.

No one deserves to be treated like this, customer or employee alike.

resolve: Create a website like Yelp for employees to talk shit about customers. It would be both entertaining and insightful. :)

I don't understand why his BS was tolerated when he emptied the tip jar. I think Victoria should've notified her employees and the Bimbos bouncers and settled things right there. As a now-tech-industry-employee who's worked many a long night for crappy wages and been low-balled on tips when I worked in the service industry, I understand the frustration. But, don't point the finger at all of us. We're not all ungrateful, indignant assholes and keep in mind that the bad apples fall off the tree when it's all said and done. There's a lot of yuppie/gentrification hate being spewed in these comments. But remember without affluent customers nobody would be able to afford the $28 chips-n-salsa+taco combos on the hill much less the omnipresent, overpriced cocktails. Concomitantly, you'd be working somewhere else... probably with people who are bigger assholes than your coworkers who are a lot less fun to work with doing things you're more likely to hate.

So, while this guy's a douche with a capital D, please don't generalize his behavior to the rest of us who are "ruining" your neighborhood. I think that's how hate crimes start in the first place...

it's pretty amazing how many of you just completely miss the point, which is best underscored by Erin @1 and the anonymous fuckface @32, not to mention those of you who "worked in a restaurant once, so they know that people should just grow thicker skin"...

this is what's happening with the ongoing gentrification of Capitol Hill. the people who come around on the weekends from the outlying suburbs treat the neighborhood as their own little hip Disneyland, while shitting on the people who actually contribute to its relevance. a linebacker and his entourage get told its too late to do karaoke at the Rock Box, so they assault the staff. a hideous goblin of a man tells a girl to lose weight and stiffs her on a tip, because...hey! why not? I don't believe that people who said they have experience in the service industry and yet are not outraged by this behavior really know what's happening around here. the sense of entitlement that drips off people like this reeks to such a point that neighborhood regulars won't even come around anymore because they don't want to unwittingly get into an altercation with drunken Lord Fauntleroy or Paris Hilton v2000.0.

sometimes, like in the case of the Rock Box incident, calling the police is a necessary step to ensure justice. but holding some turd in citizens' arrest while you wait for the police to show over a few bucks in change from a tip jar makes a lot less sense than a community of service people policing themselves. sorry if some of you feel like clutching your pearls by this kinda snowballing, but I can't help but to guess that it might be due to the fact that more than a few people out there spreading this guys' info have had to deal with his ilk one too many times, and have no other channels for recourse. get over it.

Several times in the past year facebook / twitter/ blogs have been used by so called 'adults' in the bar / club scene to case a big overblown stir and perpetuate some sort of drama. Can you not understand that your gossiping, baloney, and pettiness appear to many in this community to be simply indicative of immaturity?

Are the 20's the new teens? Is the internet making people dumber? Do people not think before they hit post!?

We must remember that taking the power back from all kinds bullies begins with each of us, if we refuse to let them affect us, they are powerless, we can first acknowledge they are wrong, call them out on it, (which she did, on FB, in her usual hilarious way) and MOVE ON. Death threats and the like are potential slander evidence and should be absolutely unnecessary. (Ask Courtney Love)

As much as I hate to admit it, (and I do!

Unfortunately, uncensored emotional outbursts that followed did make a rather ugly mess of a situation that could have easily been remedied very quickly. The heart was in the right place, the critical thinking was lacking.

This, now this is just douche-baggery for the sake of it. A zero-dollar tip says it loud and clear enough, but adding the extra post-script, the only purpose that serves is to hurt someone's feelings. There is no heart in this place, at all.

Victoria is friends on Facebook with people who worked with Andy at the Cheesecake Factory in Seattle, which is why his profile probably came up pretty high up in the search. They show mutual friends first. I think it's fascinating that this has absolutely taken off with his profile and pic attached even though in his info it says he lives in Texas and works at a Country Club.

Wow, there are some petty, mean-spirited commenters on here. No sympathy for someone who was wronged simply because they work at a "hipster bar"? That note on the receipt is not a slap in the face to this girl, regardless of her body type? You guys must be a blast at parties.

@30, it read to me like he was presented with a bill, which read $28.98. He crosses it out and writes $26.98 over it, leaves his card, and waits. He gets presented with the credit card slip where he must sign and leave a tip, where he writes $28.98, scribbles an insult, and dives into the tip jar to make up the difference. That's just how it sounded to me, though. I wasn't there.

@33 You get "Andy Meyer" off the credit card he handed her to pay.

Aside from the tip, it looks like he wrote the correct amount. But I'm not sure how you get "Andy Meyer" out of that signature.

@26 This arresting a dude for stealing tip jar money argument is really, really dumb. You suggest somehow keeping the dude at the bar, probably needing to use some kind of restraint at some point and calling the cops over $1.25 is a really good idea? That would be super awesome for the Cha, I can see it now, you'd all be talking about the fucking awful hipsters there hating yuppies so much they would get a guy arrested over $1.25 in quarters. PUH LEEZE. People get away with tiny acts of awful at bars constantly because the stink they'd put up if you said anything about them being accountable for it would crumble the foundations of the bars they were in. People are shit bags to service industry folks all the time. I'm glad someone got called out.

Sorry, it seems pretty childish to take to social media because of being stiffed on a check. Jobs where you deal directly w/the public are tough; if you can't hack it, sounds like you should be doing something else.

The pic above clearly shows a "28" not a "26."

Something seems missing in this story. Why didn't he leave a tip? Bad service? Rude service? The waitress describes only one issue, re her suggestion of what to order. Did they are argue about this more?

And yes, why no action taken on this alleged theft of the tip jar?

I don't have any issues w/the restaurant myself...I've been to Bimbo's/Cha Cha a couple times and never had any problems. I esp appreciate the fast service.

I wonder if Andrew could sue for slander.

Must be a slow newsday...

So, the 'newer yuppie crowd' on Douche Bag Hill are douche bags? They'll fit in, perfectly.
If it wasn't for self serving douche bags places like Bimbos and the Cha Cha would not, even, exist.
You didn't have him arrested for stealing money from the tip jar, but you'll take the time to hunt him down, on Facebook, to humiliate him and every guy with the same name, after the fact.
Yes, we are living in a social networking hub, and its making everyone a bunch of pussies who complain about shit on the internet, but wont do things like have people arrested for stealing.
I love how you judged he and his lady friend, from the moment they sat down. The Hill is such a cesspool of people who love themselves just a little too much. The only difference between a yuppie douche bag and a Capitol Hill douche bag is their tax bracket.
Great story. Get over yourselves.

"Is it also true that he emptied a tip change jar into his pocket as well?

Yes! In front of my manager! He put the whole jar on his hand and shook the money into his pocket!"

um, and the cops weren't called? that would have been better justice than shaming this guy on social media. get him thrown in jail for theft. unless that actually didn't happen.

*sigh* I was with you up until you admitted prejudging them. I think you shook the tip jar into your pocket to make yourself feel better.

I'm also trying to wrap my head around the part of the story where the guy steals the tip jar and nothing happens... Something is ringing false here... Maybe it is because he got a bill for $28 for about $9 worth of food? There are too many holes in this story to take at face value... On a side note, anybody who has ever been to the Bimbos knows that unless you look just like everybody else there, you are going to get treated like shit!

@7 I was mostly kidding. But I DID get beat up by 4 of my customers this weekend on the hill, so I'd say the Andy Meyer sitch was part of a larger trend!

"Victoria has located the Andy Meyers in question on Facebook"

I'm pretty sure it's "Meyer" not "Meyers". Let's try to do our part and not send the angry mob after guys with the entirely wrong name.

Whoever wrote that note, they apparently can't spell (unless they really meant that someone "cold" stand to lose a few pounds). Rule #1 on internet hating: make sure your spelling and grammar is correct, lest you look like an asshole *and* a moron.

I don't understand the tip jar part though. He emptied their tip jar in front of them? How is he not arrested for that?

If the picture she posted was really the guy, then I used to work with him. He was a manager at the Cheesecake Factory in Seattle. I can't believe someone who works in the industry would behave that way, but then again, he was always a douche.

...and somehow we still get the obligatory Lisa Dank mention in!

This particular Andrew Meyers is an asshat of epic proportions, and I can't wait to hear his backpedaling ($5 sez it was the gf who wrote the love note on the receipt)....but all the other Andew Meyerses in Seattle probably deserve a little more than an "oopsies!" for getting targeted by the Internet Rage Machine.

That "26" is clearly a 28.

And a side note: chips + salsa + pork taco = $28? I'm trying to do the math...
