A leaked photo of a restaurant take-out receipt sparked controversy over the amount New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees left as a tip.
Brees ordered takeout from the Del Mar Rendezvous Chinese fusion restaurant in Del Mar, Calif., and his total with tax came out to $74.41. Brees left a $3 tip on the order (4%), angering sports fans.
Brees responded on Twitter, clarifying that if he had sat down and ate at the restaurant, he would have left a bigger tip (20%).
Daniel Schreiber, managing partner of the Del Mar Rendezvous, felt bad that the receipt leaked and decided to donate money to Brees' foundation to make up for it.
"I… have issued a personal apology to Mr. Brees along with a personal donation of $888.88 (eight is the luckiest number in Chinese culture) to his Breed Dream Foundation today…. [The receipt] would indicate that Mr. Brees is a very generous individual, as it would be a take-out receipt… and takeout orders do not usually garner a tip at our restaurant."
So what's your take on take-out? Do you leave a tip?
