Just when you thought the tackiness quotient of the saga of a millionaire NFL player who tipped 20 cents on a Philadelphia restaurant meal before being childishly Facebook-shamed by a restaurant owner couldn’t get any higher, think again. On Saturday, someone named “Jake,” identified as a friend of PYT owner Tommy Up and a colleague of the shortchanged and maybe “disrespectful” waiter Rob, got possession of the signed receipt and put it up on eBay with a starting bid of 20 cents.
Right now, it’s one Franklin away from cracking $100,000 and most definitely the result of some 140 prank bids, dropping it squarely in priceless-art territory. But who knows? Maybe some forward-thinking collector is planning a museum of annoying restaurant receipts, and there’s always a chance, of course, that a pair of rival billionaires are duking it out online for fun. The listing itself says the winning bid will be used to create the “largest tip possible to all PYT employees for their hard work and dedication,” however, so we’ll see how this one turns out.
