I'm thinking its a $138 ticket and you can't leave an extra $5-$10 for a tip?

I am assuming this is a restaurant receipt. If you can afford a $138 meal, you can afford to leave a tip.

Honestly, my first thought was how can you afford spend $138.35 on a meal, but not afford a tip?

Hey, single moms are told constantly how brave they are and how society needs to help them more.  She is just following that train of thought.


BTW, this came out months ago.  She is minister of a small church.

Actually, I may have her confused with someone else now that I think about it.   I think the person I was initially thinknig of refuse to pay an automatic gratuity because she doesn't have to.  But yes, this came out last fall.

Brave=/=stupid, and if you can afford a $138 meal, you don't need society's help. Unless she has like, ten kids, in which case this might just be her bill at McDonald's.

I'm a single mom, and my solution is that I don't go out if I can't afford the tip.
