If you’ve ever been in the restaurant industry, you know how hard it is sometimes to get certain people to properly tip.
“I used to come home with a couple hundred dollars a night,” former server Jason Sewell says. “Then African-Americans started coming to the restaurant, and my income went south.”
It’s because of an unwritten rule most don’t know, which allows African-Americans to receive services without feeling a cultural obligation to tip. Despite polite urges to leave 15, 18, or 20%, most leave pennies on the dollar. A $68.13 bill likely gets a $1.87 tip.
“We had to tip out staff 8%,” Sewell said. “So $68 costs us over five bucks that the $1.87 just doesn’t cover.”
But Sewell and others have found a way to make money from African-Americans who have moved to their town, and are laughing all the way to the bank. They now supply them with drugs.
“Now I make what I used to, and I don’t have to report any of it!” Sewell added, “I’m just glad I got out when I did. Now I have my own network, it’s a win-win!”
