Server Given $4000 Tip– Employer Won’t Release The Coins

Can you imagine receiving a well earned tip or bonus at work and never receiving it? Well thats happened to this Memphis Denny’s employee. Her name is Shikira Edwards. Her supervisor informed her of a $4000 too she received but hasn’t run her the coins.


Why is her job playing??


” I’m just hurt that they would tell me something like this as a business and as being the owner to tell me that this is the only resolution as to look at it like I’m wrong to ask for something I know I deserve,” Edwards said.

According to kiro7, Shakira’s manager had nothing but great things to say about her and they they are simply trying to ensure the amount of money was not given mistakenly. However, fast forward three weeks later….still no coins. Edwards was told by her manager at that point, that it was her job to track down the person who left the tip to ensure it was legit.

“You’re going to tell me that it’s my fault that I didn’t get the information on a customer when they left and tipped me,” Edwards said. “I don’t know who tipped me.”

Edwards said she wouldn’t be surprised if someone at the restaurant attempted to keep the money for themselves.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if, because of what they’re going through already that they need it more than I do,” Edwards said.

According to Edwards, the business is short-staffed and low on supplies and employees don’t want to be there because of other problems.

Back in October 2019, WHBQ reported that the restaurant received a score of 57 on a health inspection.

Since then, though, the inspection scores have gone up. What do you think fam? Is it Shakira’s responsibility to hunt these people down to ensure they left the money for her? And why did Denny’s wait three weeks to tell her that was the policy. Should she have gotten the customers info initially?

What are your thoughts? I dunno fam….tough call.
