Customer tries to fire workers to work at the Waffle House

A TikToker shows a customer standing on the Waffle House counter insulting a worker for earning low wages in a now viral video, sparking discussion about how much money Waffle House employees make.

In the video posted by TikToker Michele Hamlin (@michelehamlin) on Jan. 23, a customer stands on the counter and yells, “You work at the waffle house, bitch. I make $25 an hour.”

The Waffle House worker yells back while his co-workers hold her back. What led to the argument between the two is unclear.

The caption reads: “Dinner and a show”.

The video has been viewed over 136,000 times as of Jan. 24, with commenters pointing out that Waffle House staff “bank” and effectively debunk the insult to the angry customer.

“My son works at the waffle house and makes no less than 200 tips a day no shame,” wrote one user.

“My understanding is Waffle House servers make bank,” said another.

Others pointed out that Waffle House is notorious for attracting “drama” on social media.

“Y it’s so much drama at the waffle house,” said one commenter.

“I really want to know what the staff do to the guests or vice versa because it’s ALWAYS a waffle house,” wrote another.

“Swear the Gawd waffle house employees deserve hazard pay,” added a third.
