Couple Refuses To Tip Waitress: 'We Only Tip Citizens'

A rude couple in Virginia failed to tip a waitress at an old-fashioned restaurant and explained their decision on their receipt.

It’s discourteous not to tip your waitress at a restaurant, but to refuse to leave a tip because of their race is simply prejudice. 

Adam Dart and his significant other declined to tip Sadie Karina, their waitress, and the couple insinuated that she was an immigrant and wrote on their receipt, “We only tip citizens,” Raw Story reported.


The couple wrote their racist remark after dining at Jess’ Lunch Downtown in Harrisonburg, Virginia.

John Elledge, Karina’s grandfather, posted a photo of the bill on Facebook and in the caption he wrote “Adam Dart. You are a complete and total piece of dung.”

Earlier this week, Elledge posted on social media sating, “I’d happily do the jail time if I could get just one solid punch in the face of the son of a bitch who paid for his meal at the luncheonette where my granddaughter works.”  

The waitress is a United States citizen, not an immigrant as the couple assumed. 

Employees such as this waitress now have to feel uncomfortable performing their duties at their jobs because they have to live in fear of being discriminated by their customers.
