Millionaire Dies And Leaves His Favorite Steakhouse Waitresses $50,000 In The Will

Donohues-Tip

When Robert Ellsworth passed away, he wanted to make sure his favorite waitresses were taken care of.

The 85-year-old art mogul left some very surprised servers one final tip in the form of $50,000. Ellsworth frequented New York Upper East Side steakhouse Donohue’s on many occasions. The millionaire got his nickname “The King of Ming” from his expertise in the Ming Dynasty.

While Ellsworth didn’t actually know the waitresses’ last names, he addressed them as “Maureen at Donohue’s” and “Maureen-at-Donohue’s Niece Maureen” in the will.

At the time of his death last August, Ellsworth was said to be worth about $200 million. The art collector spent most of his meals at the steakhouse, often bringing friends and colleagues to dine with him. The staff said he always would tip generously when he ate there, never even looking at the bill.

Ellsworth died from injuries caused by a fall.

Man Stiffs Waitress Over Sour Cream, Cousin Finds Out And Publicly Shames Him

Sour-Cream-Shame

Sure, when a restaurant runs out of an item you look forward to it can ruin the dining experience. The only thing you can do is make the most of it and move on. However, if you’re a recent customer at Joe’s Crab Shack, you can take it to a petty place.

Take this one guy for example.

When he discovered that the restaurant had run out of sour cream, he stiffed the waitress on a $71 check. To add insult to injury, he wrote “Find Sour Cream” on the line for tip.

Dustin Clark, cousin to the sour cream-shaming customer, saw the photo of the receipt posted online. Clark then drove to the Oklahoma Crab Shack and gave the waitress $20 and apologized for his cousin.

He then posted the experience on Facebook as well:

Clearly, Clark didn’t think something so trivial as missing sour cream was warrant enough to stiff a waitress as well leave a rude comment.

Amy’s Baking Company Waitress Does AMA on Reddit, Calls Her Former Bosses “Assh*les”

Katy CiprianoWe’ve all had that one boss who took all our tips, called us “a poisonous little viper,” and then fired us for asking a three-word question, right? No? That’s probably because most of us haven’t been employed by Amy’s Baking Company, the Scottsdale restaurant whose famously unstable owners physically and verbally assaulted customers before telling Gordon Ramsay to f*ck off on national television. After the show aired, viewers were  outraged by chef Amy Bouzaglo’s treatment of Katy, the teenaged server who was fired on the spot for asking Bouzaglo if she was sure  a table’s order was correct — after the food had been sent back three times.

That was six months ago, and Katy has taken to Reddit to assure us all that she has another job and is doing fine after being let go from Amy’s Baking Company — although she would still like her tips back.

Some highlights include Katy’s thoughts on Amy’s religious affiliation:

And, finally, whether or not she is actually a cold-blooded reptile.

Glad she cleared that one up. Thanks, Katy, for satisfying our curiosity about the insanity happening inside that restaurant. We salute you and hope you’re enjoying your viper-free work environment elsewhere.
