A bartender has revealed that the bride at a wedding she recently worked stole her tip jar, claiming it was her ‘honeymoon jar’ — and people have branded the ‘greedy’ newlywed a ‘thief.’
Reddit user Brookey_ shared her horrifying story on the website’s ‘Bridezillas’ subreddit, explaining that the social club she works at allows bartenders to put out a tip jar unless the bride and groom forbid it, or would rather a honeymoon jar for themselves.
‘I was working a wedding and about 10 minutes before I shut my bar and the wedding is over the bride comes up to me to tell me she didn’t want a tip jar and she was thinking she wanted a honeymoon jar,’ the bartender wrote, noting that the bride had ample opportunity to tell her this earlier in the night.
‘I apologize multiple times and again she says she was thinking that she wanted a honeymoon jar.’
Unacceptable: Outraged Reddit users branded the bride a ‘thief’ and said her unacceptable behavior should have been reported to the social club
The Reddit user explained that even though guests told her how ‘amazing’ she was behind the bar, the bride said she thought to herself that there is ‘no way people would have tipped’ and ‘they must have thought it was for her.’
She said the bride then took out all of the money in the jar and started counting it before she threw her $20.50.
‘The change falls on the ground and then she tells me to look for it myself,’ the bartender recalled. ‘I honestly felt so sad about this I worked so hard.
‘I guess I should be happy she gave me anything but is this okay?’ she asked.
Many Reddit users were outraged by the bride’s bad behavior and were quick to take to the comments section to stress that her tips were stolen from her.
But why? Others took issue with the idea of a honeymoon jar in general, pointing out that the bride and groom’s guests have already gotten them gifts
‘This theft, straight up,’ one person wrote. ‘Bartenders earn tips. If I put money in a jar on the bar, I expect it to be for the bartender. A honeymoon jar can be ANYWHERE ELSE.’
‘As a bartender who works weddings all the time, this is not okay. Was she drunk?’ someone else asked. ‘It’s not a good excuse, but it’s better than her being a straight up thief.’
Others took issue with the idea of a honeymoon jar in general, pointing out that the bride and groom’s guests have already gotten them gifts.
‘The concept is so gross. If I saw a honeymoon jar at a wedding, I would remove my card from the box and put it in the jar instead,’ one Reddit user griped. ‘How tacky to get a gift and then also request honeymoon money.’
‘It sounds so damn tacky,’ someone else wrote. ‘However, I also think a tip jar at a wedding with an open bar is tacky as well. I will tip you. Not my guests.’
