Waitress Arrested After Altering Tip Amounts On Customers ReceiptsTHOMASVILLE, N.C. – A waitress in North Carolina got busted taking part in what is probably one of the most unpunished, widespread types of thefts; the altering of a tip amount on a receipt.

Police say they arrested 26-year-old Judy Michelle Proffitt (ha!) after she got busted altering tip amounts left to her by customers at East Coast Wings where she waitressed. Unfortunately for Proffitt, her income was neutered after one couple she scammed did something most of us don’t and reconciled their receipts against their credit card statements.

When they found the disreprency, they contacted the manager at the restaraunt who analyzed all of Proffitt’s tickets and found that numerous tips had been altered. She was fired and police arrested her on seven counts of obtaining property by false pretense. She was held with bail set at $5,000.

Police are asking anyone who ate at the restaurant between February and June to review bank statements to check for any discrepancies. Those who feel they were scammed are asked to call 336-475-5540.

Wow, slow news day, Morbid? Not enough baby rapers and child murderers for ya’ Morbid? Gotta go pick on some North Carolina waitress scamming 5 bucks off of someone Morbid?” Yeah, that’s right I do. So f*ck you. I have no sympathy for the common thief like Proffitt. She’s stealing from customers dealing with the same economy as the rest of us or they wouldn’t be eating  at an establishment with a $.45 Wing Night. I don’t care if someone eats there and enjoys making it rain on top of their southwestern egg rolls, they don’t deserve to have money stolen from them, no matter how small the amount.

I do not reconcile my receipts because I am lazy. However, I cut down on the possibility of being scammed like this by not tipping like it’s 1950 (minimum of %15 unless the service is God-awful), tipping in cash when possible and when it’s not, I try to employ a simple checksum.

I do this by including a tip that ensures the last digit of the total equals the added digits to the left of the decimal. So if a $21.38 bill with a %15 percent tip = 24.58, I adjust the tip to 3.18 so that the total is 24.56 (2+4.5 = 6). I know it’s not foolproof but it doesn’t hurt and it makes it easy to spot shady restaurant charges on the rare occasions I do check my bank statements.

I know some of you feel that’s too much trouble for tipping purposes, but then again, I’m not a mouth-breathing moron. If you involuntarily piss your pants because your brain shifted all its resources to you performing rudimentary math in your head, then just use your friggin’ phone. Or not. Whatever.

    Crimes like this do suck. I knew a girl in college who was doing the same thing and it was so lame, at a diner no less, so I knew she was ripping off old people. :/

    For those that don’t like or are not good at math: An easy way to get close to the proper amount you should tip is to take the tax on the bill and double it.  This will usually get you around 15% then you can adjust for service.  I always tip waitresses because you have to trust these folks with your food.  However, once you start stealing like this it’s probably time to find a different line of work.

    I tip 20% unless service sucks. I believe minimum wage for a tipped employee in the state of MI is around $2.80 or something like that. Without tips many servers couldn’t afford rent/mortgage or to feed their families.

    Since most people I know tip about 20% (except my mom) it ticks me off that people alter tips since I am making sure that I do my part towards them getting a good days wage. Usually I tip in cash so that when they give me my receipt I can write CASH across the tip line so that it cannot be altered.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Chris-Sosa/100001993493220 Chris Sosa

    Normally I triple the tax. Here in NJ it’s now 7% tax and by tipping 21% I usually keep the wait staff pretty happy. And if the service was poor to awful you’ll get something in the range of $3 to nothing at all. However I myself have always been fond of cash and have always been a little paranoid about the whole writing down how much I’m tipping on some receipt. Glad to see I was right but disgusted by these actions. If she wanted better tips she should have just provided better service. Pety thievery is uncalled for and I believe she should be  stoned.

  • Zibarro aka Kryssa

    I agree this is a crime worth noting.  I’ve suspected it before but couldn’t find the receipt to prove it.  Since then, we always tip in cash.  Found out that’s best anyway.  Using your credit card actually hurts the waitress in the long run.  Something to do with taxes and fees.  

    Anywho… hope this scheming bitch gets taught an expensive lesson here.  If you think about it – if she did this to 10 customers a night at 5.00 per customer ($50.), 5 nights a week ($250.00) for 6 mos., she could have raked in an additional $5600.00 in those 6 months.  That ain’t petty change.

    Some places automatically take out 12% tip which I find apaulling because I always tip unless the service really sucked! So I just pay cash.

    Shame on her!  She should know better than that crap.  I had the same thing happen to me at a hotel bar in Tampa bay.  The bartender was adding 1′s in front of my tip amount and gave himself 3 100 dollar tips.  I threatened to fly back down to Floriduh and throw him through the window.  My bank told me to put lines up to the tip amount much like you do on your personal checks and gave me my money back.  I think the douchebartender kept his job.

    sounds like you left him no tip at all, so he was probably pissed (if he just put a 1 in front of your tips, that means you left 00 every time.)  Not that it was right of him, but it would def explain motive.

  • Anonymous

    You are right there is more to this story.  The manager of the Tampabaybuckingqueers came in with 2 players.  The big guy named Glen went to the rest room so I was telling the manager jokes and having a good time.  Glen came back and looked at me and said “I don’t wanna hear no jokes.”  I asked the bartender to serve everyone at the bar that drinks was on me and whatever Glen drank serve him doubles.  After 5 rounds of Tequilla and Beers I was feeling sorta froggy and the manager sensed a bar chair headed for Glens head and picked up and left.  I was leaving 20 to 50 dollar tips and they ended up being 120 and 150 dollar tips.  I spoke with the Beertender on the phone and he stated he did it cause I was givng his buckingqueers a hard time.

    Thank God they packed up and left because I would be in the hospital or in jail right now.

    I was a waitress. At a small hotel, a big hotel & a restaurant.

    Usually for breakfast if it’s less than 4 people & it’s a buffet, I would expect to be tipped $2.00.

    If it’s lunch $3.00 – $5.00 unless it’s a buffet (see breakfast tipping).

    If it’s dinner a $7-$10.00 tip seemed fair to me, especially because I AM an excellent waitress.  HOWEVER if you are in a group of more than 6 people automatically I will add the 10% charge to your bill whether you want it or not. If it’s a 10 or more group it’s 15%. I always was as nice as possible, I served the children first (ALWAYS  put the tray & hot stuff away from them so they do NOT knock it on you or themselves, feed THEM first & get them stuff to keep them entertained). If there is some sort of delay because of too many customers I’d give you a dessert or soda free (screw management & their approval) & I was as courteous as possible.

    I NEVER SCAMMED ANYONE ON THEIR TIP!I hated the cheap bastards who either gave you .79 cents or fucking nothing while being the most fucking demanding assholes in this side of Earth.

    I waited on Terrence Howard, the asshole motherfucker that thinks he’s pretty cause his eyes aren’t dark brown like the great majority of black people. Extremely demanding on his fucking breakfast order, ROOM SERVICE ORDER & then I get there, no tip at all (thank God they charge 10% for room service) no thank you, fucking nothing.  I gave his ass to someone else I didn’t wanna deal with his room service cheap ass.  To top it off, THE STUDIO WAS PAYING FOR THE FUCKING HOTEL & ROOM SERVICE!! If ya’ll wanna know, he was filming: Animal. It was in Puerto Rico in Old San Juan.

    I also served a pro golfer from Argentina (I think, I don’t remember his ass’ name). He had his son there. Every day he gave me a .50cent tip. Anything we got his uber demanting ass was tipped with .50cents.  One night he orders Room Service (& i had got stuck with him, no one wanted to wait on his ass). One cheeseburger, fries, a coke. Total? $12.95

    I go up with his order & I get the rapper tip. He calls 5 mins later that he didn’t want the burger, he wanted a refund & to come get the dish.

    His kid had eaten all the fries, half the burger was gone & the coke was 2/3′s gone. I said that I couldn’t refund his money back because of the meal’s state. He wanted to talk to the manager. My boss vouched for me & the fucking ass paid the meal. Why am I pissed? Because when I spent all the time in his room the motherfucker had: Louis Vuitton, Tommy Hilfilger, Prada, Boss, Hugo & all those other  uber expensive stores… he had bags upon bags of these stores filled to the brim with his purchases & he could only spare a college student 50 cents.FUCK CHEAP BASTARDS!

    Wow, just wow. I cannot believe how cheap some people can be with money, especially the ones who have money!  You were probably tipped better by the poor shlub who makes the same kind of money you were and treated human…I tended bar for my dad, and at few places when I was in school and at the place in the city I was given $200 bucks for 2 Jack and Cokes from Artie Lange…He was really nice too.

    This happened to me once. I ordered a pizza from a 24 hour restaurant and it took 2 freaking hours to be delivered. Since I paid via phone with my credit card, I didn’t tip the delivery guy. Why? Because an hour and a half after I ordered I called the restaurant and they said my pizza went out for delivery almost 45 minutes before and it should’ve been here by now. When it finally got to my house it was cold and soggy.

    A few days later I notice the charge for my pizza was $15 more than it was supposed to be. Apparently, the delivery guy wrote himself a $15 tip on a $25 order, even though I put a dash through the tip line on the receipt. I called the restaurant and they personally delivered the $15 the delivery guy stole and then fired his ass.

    I hate thieves. I hate them as much as I hate pedophiles and people who abuse animals. Thieves are nothing but scummy pieces of fucking trash.

    I know it seems odd to be so worked up over petty theft when there’s child molestors and rapists galore on this site, but those people have the distinction of being evil and/or mentally challenged. Thieves are just lazy, arrogant and greedy. They’re like politicians WITHOUT the nice suits. If they put half the effort they spend figuring out to rob people into getting a damn job and being GOOD at it, they’d be fine.

    I had a waitress really try to screw with me. She hit the gratuity key on the register and then
    brought me the receipt, even though we only had 5 people at the table.
    We were all having a lot of fun, and she assumed that the drunk(est) guy was
    the payor, when in fact I was paying (and sober). So she sticks a $35 tip on the bill in the regular charges section, hoping to get me to cough up another $35 or $40 as a tip. The thing is – we were regulars at the restaurant, and she didn’t know that. So I knew “about” what our normal bill was, plus I am a stingy wench and always scrutinize my bills, and I caught her. She tried to say that it was “normal” procedure which was BS of course.

    Needless to say, she no longer worked there the next time we came in. I can just imagine how much she could have gotten just pulling that trick a couple of times a night. Oh, and she got NOTHING from us that night. I made her re-ring the ticket and deliberately wrote NONE in the tip section.

    Well, that’s what they get for not tipping. If they can’t afford to tip then they need to just eat at home. I love it when I hear people say, “Sorry that’s all I had.” Really? Because if that’s all your money and you can’t tip then you damn sure shouldn’t be eating out in the first place.
