Red Lobster Waitress Gets $10k Tip After Racist Receipt Goes Viral
October 10, 2013
The customer isn't always right. Sometimes the customer is completely, horribly wrong, as Toni Jenkins learned waiting tables at a Red Lobster in Franklin, TN, when she got back a receipt with no tip and the n-word as the total. "I was just stunned that it happened," Jenkins, 19, said. "It's not something that you think in our generation would actually take place," she told ABC News.
After she posted the receipt to her Facebook page on September 10, Matthew Hanson of AddictingInfo.org sprang into action, setting up a, "Tips for Toni," online fund raiser that's collected $10,749.00. The proceeds were presented to a surprised and touched Jenkins on September 30. "I felt so blessed and so honored that so many people came together on my behalf to give this to me," Jenkins said. A good tip for all of us. Don’t lose faith in people.
Good! Now she can pay the guy whose name and partial card number she posted! I can only hope!

America is just the country that shows how all the written guarantees in the world for freedom are no protection against tyranny and oppression of the worst kind. There the politician has come to be looked upon as the very scum of society - Peter Kropotkin
