A server shared how she was tipped a meager $1.50 on a $100 bill despite being praised by her customers in a viral TikTok.
The video featured TikTok user Alysha Brooks (@alyshabrooks.food) who typically posts content about her job as a server. In this clip, she shared how she was perplexed after a table that praised her and called her “their favorite server” left her a $1.50 tip.
Brooks says this “threw her off,” leaving her disappointed as she rolls her eyes and crumples the dollar bill in her reenactment in the clip.
The video racked up over 464,000 views, where viewers expressed their frustrations with non-tippers.
