“A Minnesota waitress has sued the city of Moorhead after police confiscated $12,000 that she says was a customer’s tip but that authorities suspect came from a drug deal.”
Story from USA Today
When the default tip on the debit machine in my home town was arbitrarily increased to 20%, I thought it was pretty ridiculous. At the time, I’d argue that 15% was on the high side as I think the entire tipping system has gotten a bit out of control. But, in the outlandish world of tipping, I can see how a server may think that they can get away claiming a $12,000 tip. Apparently, even that amount seems reasonable to some for exceptional services rendered.
