Hung is a decent show and Jane Adams is a decent actress, but since when does Jane Adams have the power to get someone fired? Well if you are a waiter at Barney Greengrass you better be careful about your Twitter posts. Jon-Barrett Ingels was waiting on Jane Adams when she told him that she forgot her wallet. He told her she could go out to her car to get the $13.44 she owed for the meal.
Jane never came back.
So, what is a waiter to do? Tweet of course.
Tues: Jane Adams, star of HBO series "Hung" skipped out on a $13.44 check. Her agent called and payed the following day. NO TIP!!!
Maybe Jon might want to look into a dictionary at some point. Just saying.
Anyway, about a month later Adams finally heard about the Tweet and came back to the restaurant and gave Ingels a $3 tip.
Jon then wrote about that incident.
1.I love Jane Adams (Hung)!! 2.Jane read my tweet about not tipping and came in today to leave me $3. 3. Power of Twitter
Apparently Jon's boss also heard about the incident and fired Jon two weeks later. Jon still hasn't been able to get another job.
The reason for the firing was that Jon had received complaints from customers and from Adams. I'm guessing it was just Adams. Like many people here I was a waiter a very long time ago and if Twitter had been available to me I would have done the very same thing. Come on. She walked out on a bill. When it was finally paid there still wasn't a tip? I would be upset also. In a situation like that don;t you think a $20 tip would have been appropriate? Who do you think probably covered the check the day she walked out on the bill? I'm guessing the waiter. Then to come back and give $3 is kind of an insult. $3? That would have been fine if she had paid the day of the bill, but actress or not if someone does this to you, I think a little extra tip is in order and not complaining so the guy gets fired.
