Reader Email: My friend and I were doing a promo at the Compass Tavern for Devotion Vodka that night. We pass out shots and free stuff and make everyone’s time a little better. We wanted to eat something after we finished and these two bros offered to let us sit at their table because they had extra seats. They seemed like legit guys. After we ate we asked the waitress at the service bar for our bill (my friend Heather’s and mine) and it was all put onto their bill. Well I gave them the cash for our food and we squared up with the bar for everything for the promo and headed out. Apparently these dudes skipped out on their $143 bill and we aren’t being paid by our promotional company now because of it. The managers at Compass seem to think we came with them so we went in and talked to them yesterday and tried to square it away, but no closure. One is from Cali and the other one is from around here. I’m a single mom so not being paid for my work is damn annoying.
First of all, it’s ridiculous that it would even come to this. Two assholes don’t pay their bill, and the girls who are on the clock have to pay for it? What right does the Vodka company have to withhold their check? They were there to work. They did their job. Then they ate food after they were off the clock. This should be between Compass Tavern and the shot girls. The Vodka company has one job and one job alone – pay your employees. They have no reason to get involved in a dispute between a bar and a patron.
Obviously Compass Tavern needs to get paid too. They’re not running a charity here. But the shot girls didn’t go there with them if they were there to work. Obviously. So the solution is really quite simple. Devotion Vodka needs to stop being assholes and write their employees a check. Then we help Compass Tavern find the two jagoffs who ripped them off. Boom. Problem solved.
Now keep in mind, we only have one side of the story here. But what other side is there? They didn’t come together. They didn’t know each other. Obviously the chicks aren’t gonna pay for the dude’s meals and drinks if they just met them. The guys stiffed the bar. I can’t think of another way this story possibly could’ve happened. Plus, look at this guy:
He’s wearing a knit cap indoors. What kind of pretentious, metrosexual bag of dicks wears a knitcap inside a bar? I’ll tell you who – a California dooshnozzle who thought he could get away with relative anonymity 3,000 miles from home. Unfortunately his friend is local, so SOMEONE out there has to know who he is. The woman who got stiffed has offered free shirts and a bag to the first person to give us a name. She’s also a hairdresser and has offered a free service, but I don’t think that will be necessary. Turtle riders like to do the right thing because they’re good people.
So yea, first person to message us or comment on Facebook as to the identity of either of these assbags gets free shit.
