A waiter at a Tennessee Mexican restaurant struggling to get by was horrified to see the racist message left on a receipt instead of a tip.
“We don’t tip white people, LOL,” a couple wrote on his receipt at the On The Border restaurant in Cordova.
“I was absolutely devastated and so sad for him,” the waiter’s friend told WREG.
“I’ve seen Nathan, he’s counting his dollars and trying to add it up to see if he has gas to make it to work the next day.”
“He’s not going to tell you how it really makes him feel, he’s just hoping he has a couch to sleep on the next day.”
According to WREG, the waiter has been sleeping in a car at the restaurant parking lot while trying to earn enough to get off the street.
“I feel like this happens a lot where servers are really under appreciated,” his friend told the station. “You don’t have to tip if you don’t want to, but to not tip because of how somebody looks is not right.”
