Man Publicly Shames Cousin Who Told Waitress to ‘Find Sour Cream’ as Her Tip

The man posted a photo of the receipt on Facebook and encouraged his friends to share the story

When confronted, the customer said, ‘They had sour cream last time we ate there.’

A good Samaritan who was not pleased about the way his cousin handled the lack of sour cream at his local Joe’s Crab Shack has handled it in the most effective way possible — by embarrassing that cousin on the Internet.

On Facebook, Dustin Clark described the event [edited slightly for clarity].

 “So this evening at the Joe’s Crab Shack on Northwest Expressway (I Googled the address) my cousin and his wife went out to dinner, and once they racked up a $71 bill, they paid for the meal. Instead of giving any tip at all, they decided to give their own tip saying ‘Find sour cream’ because the last time they ate there they had sour cream.”

Clark continues, “When I get off of work tomorrow I am going to go up to this Joe’s Crab Shack and find this waitress and give her a $20 tip, $10 for the meal, and $10 for having to deal with rude people, and apologize for her inconvenience.”

When confronted, the cousin and his wife reportedly had nothing else to say except “They had sour cream last time we ate there.”

Clark encouraged his Facebook friends to share the photo of the offending receipt far and wide online, so that perhaps the waitress would know that not all of her customers would take the chain’s lack of condiments out on her.
