If you’ve ever worked at a restaurant, this is going to send you into a rage. And possibly trigger some tipping-related PTSD.
A guy recently posted on Facebook about the new strategy he and his wife use to TIP when they go to restaurants.
They put five $1 bills on the table, and every time their server does something they don’t like, they remove one bill without saying a word. Then whatever is left at the end is the tip. Quote, “You will receive the best service of your life.”
The post is getting a LOT of responses from people, and they seem much more negative than positive. Words like “disrespectful,” “tactless,” and “I hope you like the taste of spit in your food” seem to come up the most often.

The Mannequin Challenge is so November 13th. If you’re still doing it, get with the times, grandma.
Here’s the HOTTEST new viral trend: People are folding dollar bills in half strategically, then taking a picture where half of their face is lined up with the face on the bill. So on a $5 bill, you and LINCOLN would join together to make one complete face.
And if you get the perspective and the angle right, half of your face seamlessly matches with the half of the face on the bill and it’s actually a pretty good effect.
It’s really amazing how much of an out-of-control beast our healthcare system has become after decades and decades of running totally unchecked.
A couple in Utah had a baby a few weeks ago, and the guy just posted a copy of their hospital bill on Reddit . . . that showed a $39.35 charge for, quote, “skin to skin after C-sec.”
In other words, they were charged 40 bucks to hold their son after he was born.
How can the hospital possibly think that’s a reasonable charge?
A labor and delivery nurse posted a response to explain it: When a baby is born with a c-section in the operating room and the parents hold them right away, an extra nurse has to stay and monitor the baby to make sure they’re okay.
And while that may be true, the consensus online is that it’s still a ridiculous thing to see on a hospital bill.
A guy named Derrick Deanda from Elk Grove, California was in his car last month when he saw a van swerve off the road and roll over. And he immediately stopped to help.
And it’s a good thing he did, because a guy and his three kids were trapped inside. Derrick broke a window and helped pull them out safely before the paramedics showed up.
And now, a few weeks later, Derrick got his reward . . . a $143 bill from the city.
It turns out that when Derrick broke the window on the van, he got a small cut on his hand. One of the paramedics took a quick look at it . . . so, BOOM, $143.
Derrick says he’s shocked they charged him for helping save the family. Quote, “I mean, why would I want to stop to help somebody if I’m going to get a bill?”

There’s a reason people now live with their parents well into their 20s. Free rent, food, Internet, and insurance are AWESOME.
But what if they AREN’T free? A guy from Canada just posted on Reddit about how his plan to live for free with his parents backfired . . . when his mom gave him a BILL.
He’s in college, and he just finished 13 months at his parents’ house. And his mom gave him an itemized bill for a total of almost $29,000 in charges.
The bulk of that is his tuition, but it also included his share of the water bill, gas, cable, Internet, food, and health insurance. She also included a cleaning fee and the cost of the “specialty meals” she made for him.
And . . . she threw in a $1,000 fee for being, quote, “an [a-hole] and not appreciative of your mother’s support financially or otherwise.” That’s $1,000 Canadian, which is $745 in American dollars.
He says his mom did it to teach him a lesson and, quote, “I hope to one day be successful enough to repay her.”
