A place for moms to connect

Check out this photo that is going viral. It's of a restaurant receipt, and in the tip line, in reads, "single mom sorry." The kicker is that the bill is for $138.35!

According to the article, this photo has single moms outraged. But some think this receipt may have been from someone trying to use "single mom" as an excuse not to pay tip.

What do you all think?

i worked the restaurant game 12yrs. to run up a $138 bill and not leave a tip is outrageous. using single mom, sorry is just horrible. many of the girls i worked with were single moms. if you can't afford to leave a tip, don't eat out. go to a fast food joint where at least the staff are paid min wage. 

that being said, chances are it's fake. these things usually are. 

I don't care who you are....if you can afford that kind of meal, you better leave a tip. I am betting it wasn't really a mom, but if it was....I agree with the comments-buy groceries instead.
