Creeper behavior??? It was way more than that and those being outed should be shunned for life from the biz. Good luck with that.

Would be nice to read an article that doesn't mention BIPOC, which is a racist way to separate people by color.

^It would be nice to read an article and not have a racist geriatric comment on it. How about that?

What a load of shit.

My wife was a server for 25 years. (BTW Black people do NOT tip. It is what it is.) She had good days made great money and had bad days and made shit.

It's the same in ALL jobs and if you don't like it, get another job. Go to fuckin college, or trade school or whatever. The entire country is infected with this type of "Victimization" claptrap and the worst whiners are fuckin white girls. Jesus!

I have had to work for owners and customers that I wanted to shoot dead in the fuckin street. That's Capitalism. I could have left or walked off of the job and sometimes I did.

I sure as fuck, didn't need anyone to feel sorry for me and whine about "injustice".

Grow the fuck up.

But the best tippers are often white women.

The creeper at work and we all know who that person is, the lonely guy who can't get a decent woman so he brings his issues to work and bothers everyone else. He is usually single or married to a fat or manly looking chick. No one likes working with the creeper.

Most workplaces have a creeper, a lazy person, a bully, a trouble maker, a drunk, etc.......The creepers are pathetic men who can't read a room.
