Pink Haired Waitress Left Speechless After Being Left A ‘TIP’ In The Form Of Words From RUDE Customer

An Iowa waitress, Taelor Beeck, was not only NOT TIPPED, she was treated rather rudely by some customers that for some reason fancied themselves better than her. Taelor Beeck celebrates herself as an individual and works at Zombie Burger in Des Moines. No matter what your opinion might be of her hair color choice, hateful words are not ever a choice:


The pink-haired server was closing out one of her tables at the hip restaurant on Tuesday night when she realized the customer had left no tip and a note on the receipt reading: ‘Tips are only for normal-looking people.’

‘At first, I felt really upset, I felt attacked, I almost felt like I was back in middle school all over again, like being bullied,’ Beeck told Pix 11.

Beck chose not to publicly reveal the name of the patron, and she also decided against confronting them over the bill, which was totaled $17.26.

A 20 percent tip would have been about $3.40.

‘I didn’t act on it because it’s not worth it when someone puts hate out there, you know to respond in a hateful way will do no good,’ Beeck said.

However Beeck said the reality of the situation is that tips is how service people earn their keep, and that her appearance does not impact her ability to do the job.

‘I mean I can’t pay my bills if people don’t tip me,’ Beeck said. ‘That’s how I make a living.’

OK, so much NOPE here is just making me want to explode, OK? Let me preface what I am about to say with my own daughter has blue hair. This isn’t about my preferences AT ALL. But regardless of hair, you should know that some customers might be offended by that. Also, you should suck it up, buttercup. No one MADE you have pink hair. It isn’t a right.

I also say that yes, these customers were VERY rude. There was no need for a snarky note, nor was there a need to tip – if she didn’t perform the job, I would not have left one, but it sounds like she did. Ms. Beeck needs to realize that tips should not be relied on to pay bills – they are not part of her employment contract and are subject to fluctuation.

Finally, these customers are jerks. This is a place that puts cereal in drinks and you’re going to complain that waitress has pink hair?

Sit down, fools. The stupid is hurting us all.
