Restaurant worker says he lied for big tip at bachelorette party
In a now-viral TikTok, a server said it created an elaborate bluff to distract a bachelorette party after forgetting to add five items from their order.
TikToker Dean Redmond (@deanredmonds) posted the video on March 3rd. In it, he said he used his colleague’s makeup to draw a fake dog bite to cover up that he forgot five “sandwich items” in ordering a big bachelorette party.
“Obviously I can’t go up to them and say, ‘Guys, I just forgot to put your food in there,'” he said in the clip.
“As I led her down to our private dining room, I realized there was a table with dogs outside,” Redmond continued. “So I go to the bathroom and draw on this bite. I walk to the table with a limp and I say, ‘Guys, I’m so sorry, but the dogs outside just attacked me and I fell down with your food.’”
Redmond said his bluff worked, buying him just enough time to bring all the food down in one go. When he got to the table, he said the party asked him to sit down and tell them what happened.
“I make up a fake story, literally on the spot, about how I was mauled by one of the dogs. They end up tipping me about $200,” he said.
Redmond concluded by saying that as the group exited the restaurant, they commented to the dog owners about the alleged attack.

In the comments section of Redmond’s video, several users pointed out that forgetting to place an order was the catalyst for several of his recent server storytimes.
“Honestly, you don’t have to be very good at your job because you forget to put food away too often,” commented one viewer.
“Beast I think you need to pay more attention to your third strike in two weeks,” wrote another.
“Beast…considering another job,” added a third.
Other regular viewers said they wished Redmond were their server just to hear one of his elaborate fibs.
“10/10 would go to this restaurant just for Dean to lie to me. will be tipping big just for the experience,” one viewer wrote.
“Honestly if I was part of the bachelor party I wouldn’t even be mad,” commented another.
The Daily Dot contacted Redmond via Instagram direct message for more information.
