Waitress shares story of teens who shamed her makeup and people are furious
In life, you can usually separate the good people from the bad by how they treat those who serve them. Nice people will tip their waitresses, know the name of their doorman, and chat to bus drivers, while more mean-spirited folk treat their servers like slaves. Of course, in the age of social media, it's easy for put-upon baristas, bartenders and all manner of staff to vent their frustration with the way they're treated by customers, and sometimes these indignant posts end up getting a lot of attention online.
If you want an example, then look not further than Kelsi; a waitress and aspiring makeup artist, who posted on Instagram about the shaming she experienced at the hands of a pair of obnoxious teens while on shift serving tables. Although Kelsi endeavoured to provide them with the best possible service, things soon took a turn for the worst. The girls apparently didn't have enough money to pay for their meal and demanded to speak to the manager. The entitled girls demanded a discount and then got very nasty when their request was refused.
In an Instagram post to her followers, Kelsi wrote:
"When people try to hurt your feelings over your makeup, good thing I know my #makeup was #flawless to me? Two girls around 16 years old came in and I was their waitress. I took great care of them and everything was great until I dropped the check off. [sic]"
"When I returned to pick it up, they demanded to speak to a manager because they 'didn't have enough money' and I 'didn't tell them exactly how much their food was going to cost them' even though they had the menus for a good 20 minutes before they decided what they wanted. [sic]"
"Long story short my manager would not discount their food because they shouldn't have ordered food they couldn't pay for, and it was not my responsibility to tell them while they were ordering how much it costs after tax and everything. They 'magically' had a card to put it on and this is the 'tip' they left me. [sic]"
The two girls had written "Contouring is supposed to blend!" on the cheque, before scampering off. If I had been in Kelsi's shoes, I think that I'd probably have been quite upset. But on the contrary, Kelsi refused to let their shaming get to them, and just ignored their cruel comments. Kelsi's post proves that she wasn't affected by their rude attitude, and that she intends to continue to wear her makeup whatever way she likes. We could all take a leaf out of Kelsi's book, and stand up to shaming over our appearance, dress or choice of cosmetics. Kelsi: you keep rocking your look exactly the way you like. Personally, I think you look great just the way you are.
