A waitress wrote a scathing Facebook letter to the woman who didn't leave a tip because she apparently thought the waitress was flirting with her husband.
Jessica Morris along with her new husband, Travis, work as servers at an unnamed restaurant in Centerville, Ohio, Daily Mail reports.
The two were working on November 8 when a newlywed couple came in with another couple and sat in Jessica's section.
Jessica soon learned the newlyweds were on their honeymoon and having dinner to celebrate their wedding.
FOX 8 reports Jessica wrote about the encounter on Facebook, saying,
I replied, 'Oh I just got married last month, congratulations.' I assumed they heard me, and we proceeded with the whole 'what can I get you.'
After the people placed their orders, the new bride asked for the server's name.
In the now-deleted Facebook post, Jessica reportedly said,
I tell her 'Jessica' [and] she responds with, 'Oh, we don't really like that name. Can we call you Jess,' and I laughed and said, 'Yeah, you can call me anything you want. I'll even respond with assh*le.' In which her husband laughs and proceeds to call me that throughout the whole experience we had as server and guests.
Jessica said the table of four spent the night laughing and joking so she was shocked when she picked up the check and found no money in the tip section.
Next to the section on the receipt for "total" was a note from the new bride. The note allegedly said,
He's my husband! Find your own! Good luck.
After getting home, Jessica wrote an open letter to the woman on Facebook expressing her deepest sympathies for the woman's unwarranted jealousy.
In a part addressed to the woman directly, Jessica wrote,
So Jenny, here's a life tip for you from me, your insecurity as a woman is heartbreaking. Have pride in yourself and your relationship with YOUR husband to where you don't need to put another down to bring yourself up. Especially a server who lives off her tips and needs them to help her husband pay bills. Also, Jenny, I hope you like the pen, because it's my present to you. One NEWLYWED to another. P.S - my husband said you can sit in his section next time that way you won't have to be so worried about your husband 'flirting' with a server. Maybe you'll see his ring a little better than you saw mine. Signed, Jessica The woman you offended by thinking so lowly of, that I would attempt to flirt with a man who is with his wife.
The post was reportedly deleted around 3 pm on Tuesday, but after being shared over 50,000 times, maybe it was seen by the new bride.
