A TEENAGE couple on a date at Nando’s have decided the correct amount to tip their waitress for their meal is 40p.
Josh Gardner and Sophie Rodriguez, both aged 17, had each eaten a single combo meal and had spoken to the waitress very little, so hazarded she had not had to do much work.
Rodriguez said: “We just had those and a drink. Also we haven’t got much money.
“A tip has to be cash, doesn’t it? And I pay everything on my iPhone and he only had £1.85 and he might need that, and we’ve only been here an hour and didn’t go on the wifi.
“I’d say she’s spoken to us four times? Like if we’d ordered cocktails and complicated stuff and ice-creams with sparklers in, we’d definitely pay more.
“But you can’t not leave a tip, it’s not like Maccy D’s. If we walked away leaving a bare table we wouldn’t be sophisticated, adult diners in a proper relationship. Which we are because we didn’t have pudding and went to see that very long DiCaprio film after.”
Gardner agreed: “40p’s alright. You can get a lolly and temporary tattoos for that.”
