Besides being in the NFL Hall of Fame, is Warren Sapp even relevant anymore? I mean really? Who cares? Look at Michael Strahan. At least, he went on to become a co-host on one of the top morning shows in America. Yeah, so what a homeless man tried to kill him this morning. The point is that he's still relevant. Warren Sapp? Not so much!
Anyway, the former Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle was recently flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct this past Tuesday when he was outed on Twitter for not leaving a tip for a 26-year-old waitress after watching the U.S. versus Belgium World Cup game at Upper Deck Sports Bar and Grill in Miami. The bill, which cost only $69.39, was left with a message written in by Sapp saying "Boys don't tip." What did that mean? Well, apparently, Sapp did not like it when the waitress called him and his friends "boys." Are you kidding?
Sapp allegedly defended his actions on Twitter by also saying that the service was indeed poor as well. He tweeted, "She kept calling us boys so the tip Fit! I left it was horrible and service was the worst!" What a jackass! Who is not smart enough to know that these servers live off the tips their patrons give them. I don't care if she called you a boy, a dog, or a girl, she still deserved to be tipped because she provided a service to you. This is why some people don't deserve to have money!
The waitress, who is only going by the name Corey, gave her side of the story saying, "I walked over to his table. It was him and one other guy and I said, 'Hey boys, what can I get you to drink?' And he was like 'We're not boys. I'm a man.'" Sounds to me that someone is a bit insecure. Anyway, Corey went on to say that saying, "Hey, men, what do you want to drink?" sounds a little weird, so she goes with 'boys' a lot because it's youthful and general. She also added that she didn't think calling them 'boys' was offensive and that if she walked up to a table of girls, she would have said, "Hey, girls" or "Hey, ladies."
A manager at Upper Deck Sports Bar and Grille said that they would investigate if the service was poor, which Corey also defended. She said that he arrived at the bar at around 3:20 pm....And he left probably an hour after the match and that his service wasn't terrible. If he hung around an hour after the match, I highly doubt that his service was terrible. If the service was that bad, he should have left. He was in Miami. I'm sure every bar in that city had the World Cup game on. Corey went on to say that she also did not post the receipt on Twitter. She sent the photo to her sister who posted it to social media, which lead it to go viral.
Corey said that Sapp wasn't the first famous athlete that she's served. She also once served Hall of Famer Dan Marino, whom she said was the 'nicest person ever' and they even talked about Ace Ventura. All I have to say is that it sounds to me that she caught Warren Sapp in one of his bad moods. He probably wasn't in a good mood and hearing some random girl call him a boy didn't help his mood. That's still no excuse no to tip someone who served you. From what I hear, being cheap is a common practice for celebrities who wipe their asses with $100 dollar bills! Warren Sapp should be ashamed of himself.
