Server says customer stayed 6 hours and only tip 10%

A waitress at a restaurant went viral on TikTok after sharing her frustration with two customers who sat at a table for six hours and only tip her 10% of their check.

Server Kristina Withers (@krisswith) posted a two-minute video on TikTok explaining her anger at the customers. In the video, she says the customers were in the restaurant before she even got to work at 5:30 p.m. Another waiter, who came into work at 3:30 p.m., had already served the couple and paid them off when Withers got there, she says.

“They were fine, chilling,” Withers says of the couple. “You were good to go. Paid off, no worries.”

At 7 p.m. (three hours after the payout), customers came to Withers and asked who their waiter was because they wanted to order drinks and dinner. At this point, Withers’ co-worker already had the night off, so she became her new waitress.

The TikToker says each of the customers got a drink and a taco plate and ordered another drink at 8 p.m. The restaurant, which Withers doesn’t name, closed at 10 p.m. She says they were the last customers in the restaurant.

“But the best part, the very best part? They didn’t even tip 20%,” says Withers. “They were my only table. I know I gave them great service – probably overly good service because again they were my only table.”

Despite the good service she insists on, the TikToker says the couple only tipped her 10%.

“Well, if you’re going to sit in a restaurant for six friggin’ hours, there should be some friggin’ cover charge. $5 [per] damn hour when you’re sitting there not drinking and not buying,” says Withers. “It’s a damn joke.”

Viewers couldn’t understand why customers felt comfortable sitting in a restaurant for six hours – and then tipping them 10%.

“WHAT have you been doing for six hours???” asked one viewer.

“With whom [sits] 6 hours in a restaurant?” commented a second viewer.

A third said: “I can’t even sit on my couch for that long. Quality.”

Other servers shared their own customer horror stories.

“I had a two top sit for 4 hours the other day…” shared one user.

“Omg yesterday I had a table asking if it would be ok to sit for a while because they were waiting for their son’s bail to be processed!! They were fat though,” wrote another user.

Another commented: “Honestly! Had two tops at one of my tables for a whole shift. (7.5 hours) They were my first and last. They only left because I was cleaning.”
