The TikToker explains that during its Thursday shift, a group of ten women walked in at lunchtime to celebrate their boyfriend’s birthday. After being seated, the group ordered five jars of mimosa, so Redman asked to see their IDs.
“Only about five had to show me ID,” he says. “I’m like, ‘Guys, I’m really sorry, but I can’t serve alcohol without ID.’
In the end, the group only ordered four mugs. However, Redman notes that each jug serves about nine people and that he was concerned the women would share the drinks with their friends, who were likely underage. After placing the group’s appetizer order, Redman took one look at their table and realized he was right.
“I try to loosen them up a bit because I know girls, I was a minor once, too,” he says. “I wanted to drink with my friends, but you have to stand out or at least have a fake or something.”
Redman says that shortly after receiving their order, the group began yelling and bothering other customers. Due to complaints, the TikToker told the women that he saw them passing drinks and that they needed to calm down.
“This girl sitting next to her birthday friend starts ripping up a vape and that was like one of the last straws for me, so I was like, ‘Guys, if there’s another incident, I need to get the check for you , and then you just have to go,’” he says.
Less than five minutes after customers promised to calm down, Redman heard the sound of breaking glass coming from her table. He says two girls standing at the end of the table taking photos accidentally knocked over a glass, prompting him to ask them to leave.
“I say, ‘I’ll have to call the police if you don’t go,'” he says. The women insisted that they would not go because they had done nothing wrong; However, they told Redman to call the police.
Redman says he returned from a call to the police and found the woman left without paying the bill.
The TikToker explains that the total cost of the jugs for women was around $190 since each jug contains 7 to 8 bottles of champagne. Redman says he called human resources to explain the situation and offered to pay half the bill, but he was shut down.
“So I just got fired and have to start looking for a new job around the holidays,” he says.
Users in the comments section shared their take on the situation, as many have been following Redman’s work journey through TikTok.
“They literally tried to convince them they were right when there was a doubt and they just always got it wrong,” wrote one user.
“They fired you for going for a walk!!??” asked another.
“Sorry babes that sounds like a blessing in disguise!” a third wrote. “This place has literally never had your back.”
