Waiter says table left no tip after restaurant ran out of celery

A video from TikToker recounting an experience where a table didn’t leave a tip because they didn’t receive celery with their appetizer resonated with viewers on the platform.

In her video, which has garnered over 1.2 views on TikTok, Lara (@moanatease) says a customer spent the time sitting in her space talking about her and refused to give a tip give because the restaurant ran out of celery to accompany its boneless wings.

“Some time goes by and they decide to order another thing with boneless wings,” she says. “One of the line chefs in the back then tells me we ran out of celery, so I put the plate down when I get their boneless wings, and I’m like, ‘Unfortunately, we ran out of celery for tonight, so that’s just it that’s how the chicken will be.’”

Throughout the exchange, Lara says she was ignored and coaxed while attempting to serve that particular table.

“They don’t acknowledge me, they don’t look up to me whatever, so I walk away from the table,” she says. “Some time goes by and she calls me again and says, ‘We actually didn’t get any celery with our boneless wings,’ with a damn cheeky tone line. I thought, ‘Actually, when I put the plate down in front of you guys, I actually reminded you that we ran out of celery for tonight.'”

Lara closes the video by saying that she was tipped $0 from this table.

Viewers thought it was rude for anyone to get so worked up about celery.

“Who complains about celery?!???” read a top comment.

“Whoever even eats the celery is literally a wing ornament,” wrote another commenter.

“They behave as well as celery,” said another.

Others praised Lara for putting up with such unkindness from her customers, as well as the service industry in general.

“I could never be a waitress, you guys are the real soldiers,” wrote one commenter.

“Bro waitresses don’t get paid enough,” agreed another.

“You are so strong because I want to yell at her,” said one user.

The Daily Dot sent Lara a direct message on Instagram to comment on the video.
