DailyMail- An Iowa waitress was stiffed out of a tip on a $17 check because she was not 'normal looking'.
Taelor Beeck celebrates herself as an individual and works at Zombie Burger in Des Moines.
The pink-haired server was closing out one of her tables at the hip restaurant on Tuesday night when she released the customer had left no tip and a note on the receipt reading: 'Tips are only for normal-looking people.'
'At first, I felt really upset, I felt attacked, I almost felt like I was back in middle school all over again, like being bullied,' Beeck told Pix 11.
Let's get this out of the way, this woman was NOT bullied. You walk around with bright pink fucking hair then people are going to talk about you and it's not always going to be positive. She knew when turned her hair into cotton candy that she was going to get attention by doing it so I am calling bullshit on the bullying.
With that said, I do respect her right to make a living, and if she's going to walk around looking like a asshole then I can't possibly think of a better place for her to make a living than a 'Zombie Burger' in the middle of Iowa. I don't think its ever right to not tip a waitress whose livelihood depends on the generosity of others, but you might be able to get away with the "tips are for normal looking people" move at a normal restaurant. You lose that right when you show up to a fast food burger joint named after the walking dead. I am going to go out on a limb and say that this woman's unorthodox appearance didn't take anything away from the experience of eating their $5 Undead Special. In fact, if you choose to go to a restaurant that is below three stars on Yelp! then your tip should be included, because you should know that by walking through the doors you bought in to the mediocrity of your meal. It's 2016. People don't go places to eat unless they know what to expect, and when you go to a "restaurant" whose theme revolves around soulless corpses than you accept the irregular eccentrics that choose to work there to pay their bills.
