An Arkansas waitress received a whopping $4,400 tip, only to be fired after her manager made her split it with other staffers, according to reports.
The generous gratuity came on Dec. 6, when waitress Ryan Brandt and another server worked a party of more than 40 at Oven and Tap in Bentonville, Fox 59 reported.
Each diner had chipped in $100 in tip money — believing the total would go to both servers.
“We knew servers were really hit hard through COVID, and it was something that we had come up with to help give back,” Grant Wise, who dined at the eatery following a conference in town, told CBS 5.
But the restaurant’s manager instructed Brandt to pool the tip with her co-workers who didn’t serve the large party, in an arrangement she told Fox 59 was unprecedented in her more than three years working there.
Worked there for 3.5 years, served a 40-person party for the place with only one other staffer….yet she had one foot out the door
