Banker Reportedly Leaves 1% Tip On $133 Lunch Bill In Defiance of 'The 99%'


A banker left a 1% tip in defiance of 'the 99%' at a Newport Beach restaurant the other week, according to his dining companion and underling who snapped a photo of the receipt and posted it to his blog, Future Ex Banker.

A call to the restaurant stiffed with the 1% tip, True Food Kitchen, was referred to their corporate office, but has not yet been returned.

In posting the photo, the employee gave some background on his boss and the receipt:

QUOTE
Mention the “99%” in my boss’ presence and feel his wrath. So proudly does he wear his 1% badge of honor that he tips exactly 1% every time he feels the server doesn’t sufficiently bow down to his Holiness. Oh, and he always makes sure to include a “tip” of his own.


The "tip" of his own in this case was to tell the server to "get a real job." Pleasant.

The whistleblower's Future Ex-Banker blog includes additional background on his boss, and some insight into why he would out his gross behavior, likely resulting in an employment status of current ex-banker:

QUOTE
I work in the corporate office of a major bank for a boss who represents everything wrong with the financial industry: blatant disregard and outright contempt for everyone and everything he deems beneath him. On top of that, he’s a complete and utter tool. At the same time, I’m still cashing paychecks, an admittedly willing—albeit reluctant—cog in the wheel of this increasingly ugly industry, so I’ve created this blog as a confessional of sorts. It won’t entirely clear my conscience, but hopefully it’ll help. I’m sure I’ll get fired eventually. Until then, enjoy.

It sucks to have to rely on a paycheck at a job you know is foul. Nice way for this guy to blow off steam. I'm sure now that is making the rounds throughout the mainstream media, his boss will find out and he's gonzo.

I hope he gets a better job.

That's their answer to everything. Anyone who doesn't have a "real job" is obviously not working hard enough. Not like the jobs aren't there or anything. ermm.gif

Wow. I hope he commits suicide someday. Literally. World will turn without him.

The U.S. must have the laziest people in the world if it can't even get 100% of its population into the top 1%.

He didn't even tip 1%. Rules of Math and decimals = round up. A real banker should know that, puleese. haha.gif

Pfft. Even if you get a "real job" it sucks - case in point, this "Future Ex-Banker". tongue.gif I mean, I just got a full time job for a major American fashion retailer where I'll earn $14 an hour. But, I'm sure there will be plenty of people whom I will encounter who will say I don't have a real job. rolleyes.gif Anyone in the service/retail industry is treated like a slave, no matter what their position... we're never seen as equal human beings.

... Not that the corporation I'm employed by will treat me with any respect though either. There are literally over 300 reviews of this company on Glass Door, and 95% of them are extremely negative. rolleyes.gif

The 1% tip would have set me off alone, because based on his actions I'd say he wasn't the friendliest customer. But that remark... I would have been looking for a new job, cleaning toilets in prison.

No, the only true pos was the person who photoshopped that in the first place and made someone look like a "cheap bastard" for no reason. The real tip the guy left was gracious actually.

I was thinking, the image with the corporate dining decor in the original post strikes me as tres clip art.

Probably, but that is another story.
