Man Slammed For Complaining About Leaving Tip On £3,500 Restaurant Bill

A man has been slammed online after he showed off a receipt boasting about an extravagant lunch of burgers and champagne before complaining about having to tip his waiter afterwards.

It's fair to say this guy isn't a man of the people, he's a financial trader and - to be quite honest - deserves every bit of criticism that's coming his way if this is his attitude to service workers.

He and his pals spent the equivalent of around £3,500 - €4,098, if we're being precise - at a restaurant in Marbella, before complaining that before they left their luxury dinner they had to leave something for the poor souls who had looked after them.

Honestly, some people, eh?

The man, who we won't name here, shared the photo to show off the fact he had to pay not only a service charge, but also a tip.

Imagine that.

He claimed the group he was with had already forked out for a service charge that worked out at €372 (£317), and were about to leave the establishment when the waiter chased them down asking if they were planning to leave a tip.

He tweeted: "Marbella [is] the new Ibiza.

"Fraudsters everywhere."

Since it was shared, the post has gone viral with more than 6,200 retweets and 3,600 likes, with most of the people piping up in the comments to express their thoughts on the matter.

Most of them tended to focus in on the fact that the meal was so expensive, and included two £854 magnums of Dom Perignon champagne, as well as tequila and Wagyu beef burgers.

One said: "You've spent at least ten pensions on a dinner of bloody hamburgers and now you want what? Solidarity?"

Another wrote: "If you order a €1,000 bottle you're asking to be swindled."

However, some pointed out that the actual destination of a service charge isn't always completely clear.

A third commented: "The service charge goes to the club. You should always take care of the waiters if they've treated you well."

The trader did later add that he left a tip that is equivalent to around £214, but 'didn't need to publicise it'.

However, he did feel the need to complain about it in the first place, though.

He also then shared a tweet in which he boasted that his job allowed him to make the cost of the meal back in 10 minutes flat, because of the success of his investments.
