Waitress receives ‘we only tip citizens’ note on receipt

HARRISONBURG, VA (WCMH) — A Virginia town is rallying behind a waitress who received a hateful comment on a receipt instead of a tip.

According to WHSV, last Monday, August 15, Sadie Elledge waited on a man and a woman at Jess’ Lunch restaurant.

Elledge says things were odd from the very beginning. “They wouldn’t talk to me. They would just nod their heads.”

When the couple left, the woman signed the receipt, but instead of a tip, left the note “We only tip citizens.”

“It shouldn’t even matter, I just feel like it’s rude and disrespectful. I’ve never met, I’ve never done anything to them,” Elledge told WHSV. “I was born here but I’m Mexican and Honduran.”

However, since the incident, Elledge has received the tip and then some from community members wanting to show their appreciation.

But Elledge’s boss, Angeliki Floros wants an apology from the couple. “I would like for them to not come here unless they regret what they did.”
