Waiter Fired For Showing Off Manning’s Tip

March 9, 2012 by staff 

Waiter Fired For Showing Off Manning’s Tip, It was a good thing Peyton Manning left such a nice tip for his server at the Angus Barn because it was one of the last the server would ever receive at the Raleigh, N.C., steakhouse.

According to the Triangle Business Journal, a server at the restaurant was fired after posting a photograph of the generous tip Manning left on a $625 bill. The restaurant included its own 18 percent gratuity, bringing the tab to about $739, and Manning added another $200 on top — roughly -a 50 percent tip. “Jon” was terminated by restaurant owner Van Eure for violating the restaurant’s privacy policy.

Yeah, you probably shouldn’t post a photograph that includes the last four digits of Peyton Manning’s credit card number (we’ve blurred them, just to be safe). That’s bad publicity for the restaurant. It surely can’t afford for the Raleigh glitterati to think that all their checks will be posted on Twitter.

It comes as no shock that Manning’s a good tipper. I’m sure he held the door for people when he walked in, called his waiter “sir” and pulled out the chairs for everyone at his table, all while donating money to charity and shaking hands with strangers.

No, the only thing that’s surprising about this is that a restaurant with “Barn” in its name has such a pricey menu.
