Hooters waitress gets tip stolen

A Hooters waitress named Hope (@wafflehouseparty) recorded counting her tip at the end of her shift, which is a common TikTok trend. What she didn’t expect, however, was the discovery that part of her tip was missing, leading her to believe that someone had stolen the money she had collected for her tips while working.

She said in the clip: “Okay so I’m a Hooters girl and this week we had to dress up for St Patty’s Day so I just wore the regular uniform with green eyeshadow some like green necklaces with some cute socks and I painted my nails.”

Hope said she wanted to see if going the extra mile to make the holidays extra festive would culminate in better tips: “So let’s see if it helped my tips at all. Today was a long day working double time and it was pretty slow but I think my tips were still pretty good so let’s see.”

A text overlay that stays on throughout the clip spoils what’s happening in the video. “Watch me realize someone stole my money?” she wrote. At this point in TikTok, Hope has no idea she was fingered; However, as she counted her tips, she realized something was afoot.

When she got to $110, she stopped and said, “There’s no way. Wait, there’s literally no way I made this little one. What the -?”

Hope looked away from the camera before picking it up and raising her voice, “I thought I’d say, ‘Fuck, I did bank.’ There’s no fucking way I’ve done so little. I literally declared $110 which means there was $110… no way. Oh my god, oh my god, I’m going to throw up.”

Hope then turned back to her money and began counting it again before the video ended.

Judging by the comments, there were other servers who said they were victims of tip theft from their own employees. “YES! I have to count half the shift and write it down. That’s how I caught my colleague,” one person wrote.

Another said: “This happened to me at Twin Peaks before I checked out and I knew it was my colleague but they couldn’t blame her and they made me pay them everything back.”

Many urged waiters to never take their eyes off their aprons, saying that unfortunately this is a common occurrence when they work in the service industry. “This has happened to me all the time I have served. the worst feeling. especially knowing that there is nothing you can do. I FEEL YOUR PAIN GIRL”

According to Working America, if an employee is suspected of stealing tips, companies or other workers can file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Labor and/or the state labor department in the region where the company is located.

However, in a follow-up video, Hope shared a story about a tip-stealing incident, which involved not a co-worker but a Hooters customer stealing cash left on the table by other diners.

She said in the video that she didn’t think any of her colleagues would steal from her and that there were no cameras trained on the table from which she noticed money had been stolen. She narrowed the suspects down to those “broke ass bitches” who just left her some loose change on her table as a tip. Hope said when she confronted the women, two of them immediately walked away while one stayed behind and denied ever taking the money. Hope then bluffed and said that she checked the store’s cameras and saw them steal the money, clear as day.

Hope said she didn’t get her money back, but she believed their behavior was more than just saying they were guilty.
