Somebody please tell Philadelphia Eagles player LeSean McCoy that you are supposed to leave a 20 percent tip at a restaurant. Not 20 cents.
On Monday afternoon, McCoy and three guests visited PYT, the popular burger-and-booze spot in Philadelphia. The group racked up a tab of $61.56, and McCoy charged the bill to his Visa card, leaving a 20-cent tip. That is a .32-percent tip.
PYT owner Tommy Up says that it was absolutely the LeSean McCoy who left the 20-cent tip as opposed to just some random LeSean McCoy leaving a 20-cent tip.
But not everyone on PYT’s Facebook page is being exactly sympathetic to the server or the restaurant.
One Facebook commenter had this to say:
“How was the service? I’ve had shity service with you guys before. Maybe he thought it was fair.”
And another suggested that, perhaps, this wasn’t a good move on the part of PYT:
“Bad form PYT. Posting this is disturbing and unprofessional. Have you read your Yelp page? SMH.”
Up maintains that there wasn’t a single complaint from the table about service. “They were not easy customers,” he says.
