Jerk Leaves Screed About Obama In Place of Tip at Cupola

Some asshole decided to take his post-election anger out on a server at San Francisco’s Cupola Pizzeria this week. Along with a $3 tip on a $37 bill he left this card, which reads “As a direct result of Proposition 30 and President Obama’s insistence that I pay ‘MY FAIR SHARE IN TAXES,’ I find that I must cut back on discretionary spending and gratuities. I wish it didn’t have to be this way for both of us.” You know what we wish? That people with poor logic skills and tight wallets would simply not dine out if they feel they’re being taxed unfairly. Proposition 30, which passed in November, raised sales taxes in California from 7.25% to 7.5%, and raised income taxes for those earning more than $250,000 a year. As Michael Bauer, who got a photo of the card via the head of Lark Creek Restaurant Group, writes, “This is one guy I’m glad I don’t know.” [Between Meals/Scoop]
