There’s not leaving a trip and then there’s this. While working at On the Border Mexican Grill & Cantina, this white waiter gets stiffed and also received a disgusting, racist note.
The waiter is named Nathan Bergeron and he works at the restaurant in Memphis, Tennessee. The note came from a married couple. This couple had brought their teenager along and had racked up a bill of $50. Leaving no tip wasn’t good enough. They also left this disgusting note: “We don’t tip white ppl! LOL.”
Per Daily Wire:
“I was more shocked,” Bergeron told WATN. “The fact that they would be so blatant and put it out there.”
“I treated that table no differently from anyone else,” he insisted.
After work, Bergeron sent a photo of the note to a few friends, finding humor in the absurdity of the situation. One friend, Brandy Sciara, did not find the situation humorous; she was appalled by the racism. She posted the photo to social media to bring “awareness” to the incident.
“He’s a good person. He goes to work, does his job,” said Sciara. “When I saw the comment I cried. I was always told, ‘If you have nothing nice to say, don’t say it at all.’”
The friend also created a GoFundMe page for Bergeron, which has raised a stunning $7,500-plus for the waiter, far exceeding the initial $500 goal.
“Community support has been wonderful,” Sciara stated. “Everyone is standing behind Nathan.”
As for Bergeron, he says he won’t let the incident bring him down.
“I’m not going to let this bring me down,” said the waiter. “I love what I do. I get to meet new people every day and interact with people from all different backgrounds.”
