Burger Worker -- Obama Didn't Want Change!

6/3/2009 5:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Barack Obama was definitely in the mood to play a little "just the tip" with the cashier at Five Guys burger joint last week -- as in, dude totally let her keep the change!

Five Guys worker: Click to watch
TMZ talked to the lady who took the $72.40 order from the Prez, and she tells us he let her keep the extra $7.60 from the $80 he threw down.

It ain't much -- but how many of you actually tip for fast food?!

The REAL DEAL    

I have never seen a black man tip. Just ask many waiters and waitresses. They don't like to serve tables of black patrons because they don't tip and are often rude and arrogant. Anywho, $7.60 is only about 10 1/2 percent tip. Traditionally a 15 percent tip is miminum for basis service and 20 percent for excellent service. This Five Guys location apparently provides sub par service to it's patrons.

I bet she keeps the tip. I know I would. How many people gets a tip from the President. Just because he spends money doesn't mean its the tax payers. Remember he makes money on his own. People are just too negative about him, and no I didn't support or vote for him. But I acknowledge him as our president and do have respect for the office that he holds. All Americans should do the same.

A multi millionaire and the president of the united states did not accept 7 dollars worth of change- what a shocker!

20%? Are you frickin crazy? You're lucky if you 10% out of me. Most waiters/waitresses are rude and slow. There is nothing you can do that would make me give you a 20% tip. You take the order, serve the food and keep my coffee cup full. STFU and just do your job. $7.60 is a pretty good tip for a burger jockey who would not normally get a tip in the first place.

Look at all of the petty racists making their watermelon and monkey jokes from the privacy of mama's basement.
They would NEVER admit their true hatred in public, except maybe at a Sarah Palin rally or Hannity freedom concert.
Why don't you just admit the hate is racially biased?? From the comments here it's pretty hard to deny.
Thanks for reinforcing the belief of many that the truly hateful Obama critics are racists indeed.
Stand up, admit that you think you are better than him because of the color of your skin. White is Right, right? - Jesus would be really proud of you to testify to THAT!! He knows who your are and you can't hide from HIM the way you hide on the internet.

hahahaha!    

What a sampling of idiotic morons we have here. Tax payers dollars? Really.. it's a job people,... he does get a salary and like it or not he can buy fast food. I really wish you big mouths were bellowing your concerns for your tax dollars before Bush spend BILLIONS of them on BS and took month long vacations while our young people die in a war he lied about and pushed for. Pull your hating heads out of your a$$es for change or do you get a woody from spouting foolishness on the internet?

I have never once referred to Obama with terms such as "monkey" or any other slant that would be deemed "racist"!! However, my dislike of this president on his policies always returns a pointed finger with the ever-blaming "racist" remarks!!

It's apparently impossible to be dis-satisfied with the job this President continues to do! Apparently, for those that criticize him, those that disagree only have the race card to pull out of their azzes!! Why? Because they obviously have nothing more intelligent to say to debate the man! Calling someone a racist, is supposedly an ending statement. The proverbial "last" word on the subject! Why? Because not even ONE Oama supporter can say the "real" reason they voted for him---- TO MAKE HISTORY!! In my point of view, that in itself is racist! Why did you vote for him? What policies did you elect him for? What qualifies him to be President? These, amongst other questions, have yet to get any real or valid answers.. WHY? Because people are too busy calling those that have spoken about his ACTIONS, ..racists- that's why!

You cannot be a racist towards a chameleon man such as our President. It's just not possible. A WHITE mother, a BLACK father, and MUSLIM ancestors apparently makes him immune to any racism right? I don't "hate" anyone,.. I dislike, distrust, diss ALL politicians equally.

10%ers Suck    

Do Your Job, you're dispicable. You are so rude you probably don't even realize when you get great service. Just as it's not your fault that servers don't get paid by their restaurant, it's not their fault either. If you don't tip, they are essentially PAYING to serve your ass. Bitch.

By calling us racist, that is supposed to shut us up. Too funny. Most of us don't get on here to hurl racial slurs at the Pres. just the freaks of nature do that who are hoping to rile everyone up. Once again, the few freaks out there tend to give the rest of us who would like a little normal debate a bad name. Kind of like how now any of us who are pro-life and Christian are now "Christian fundamentalist terrorists" after the horrible killing of Dr. Tiller.

Regarding the tipping. At that Five Guys, there is a tip jar right next to the cash register and many do regularly tip. It's not a big deal.

The money it costs the taxpayers to pay for his date nights flying on Airforce One and his helicopters is a whole lot more than the under $8.00 tip he left shows how much he cares for us. Most people leave a tip bigger than that on a "date night" at Chilis. Big deal, he doesn't impress me in the least
