Before we get into this gist, here’s a little backstory.

So some people on Twitter said that’s it’s wrong to eat at a restaurant and not tip the waiters. When other people pointed out that we live in a society where money no too dey like that, the pro-tip people said that anyone who can’t afford to tip, shouldn’t be going to restaurants (i.e. sit at home and eat rice).

That was how, in a bid to explain that many Nigerian restaurants have terrible servers who don’t deserve tips, TwitterNG was flooded with stories of shitty restaurant experiences

Here are the funniest ones we found.
