The community rallied in support of a server at John Henry’s Pub in Ardmore after a customer refused to tip her because she asked him to follow the rules and wear a mask, writes Victor Fiorillo for the Philadelphia Magazine.
The popular tavern is one of the places that is taking COVID-19 precautions seriously. Customers have to sanitize their hands when entering the premises and wear a mask until seated.
On Sunday, Jamie Ledwith asked one of the customers who stepped outside and returned without a mask to put one on until he was seated.
“He kind of brushed it off,” said Ledwith.
Then, he asked for a bill and wrote “MASK” on the tip line, stiffing his server.
Ledwith showed the receipt to John Henry’s Pub co-owner, Kathy Kearney, who posted it on the Facebook page while obscuring the customer’s name.
Meanwhile some of the customers decided to rectify this unjust treatment and began tipping Ledwith extra and finding other ways to make up for the treatment she received.
“It’s been overwhelming,” said Ledwith.
