Tax protester leaves ridiculous note instead of tip

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

To tip or not to tip. That is a question that is always up to debate on quality of services. But what if it didn't depend on that?

A picture of a note left by a patron of a restaurant to the waiter/waitress has gone viral. The note left by the patron states, "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."

It is not certain who or where this note was left but it is probably from California, due to its reference of Proposition 30, the name of a California ballot measure that will raise income taxes on upper-tax brackets while also temporarily increasing sales tax to fund K-12 schools, community colleges and state universities.

Either way, is it really the problem of the restaurant employee on what new laws or taxes come into effect? Certainly not. The real problem for the employee is that they were left without a cash tip.
