I found it deplorable to read that a low-life thief stole tips at The Chipped Cup in Hamilton Heights.
The thief was caught on tape reaching into the tip jar taking out cash and shoving it into his bag. These waiters and waitresses work hard for their money and these tips make up a larger part of their salary.
I know this too well, for my wife Eva had worked for 25 years for the Scobee Dinner in Little Neck and her tips made up a larger portion of her pay. My heart goes out to these hardworking people at The Chipped Cup and I hope they apprehend this thief who was caught on camera.
To the tip thief let me say shame on you.
