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?!

Five Guys is totally worth the tip! It is a local DC area chain that makes awesome burgers with toppings to suit to order.

go figure    

Mr. President, do you want fries with that order?
Mr. President, why haven't you given the American people a copy of your long form birth certificate to prove you meet the Constitutional requirements for your job?
Mr. President, thank you for bringing the press corp with you to witness your tipping skills (better than your craptastic bi-partisan leadership or "transparency" skills)

I think he's going @ this "I'm just a regular guy" thing, a little too hard. It's great that he's actually trying to connect to the people he serves, to show them he's one of them not above them.....But all the camera men surrounding him is a little much. Either way GO OBAMA!

WTF?Hhe bought some food for christs sake. What’s the deal? Wow, I'm ashamed, embarrassed and disgusted thinking people in other countries will read these comments. Bush created the problem and nobody could do better than Obama given what he inherited. He is a genius intellectually, graduated in the top of his class and unlike the puppet Bush and his idiots, has no affiliation with narcissistic cults who do whatever they want without the slightest consideration how it will affect anyone but themselves. Open the borders and deport you f***in morons! I'll take any of foreigner over you white trash, Nazi, backwards ass clowns any day. You don't like it? Get the F**K out! Attention all other citizens of the world; we have openings for intellects to replace our morons. Please apply for citizenship and help the USA restore her honor.

WOW.... OUR GOV. KNEW WHAT THE WERE DOING WHEN THEY PUT UP THAT PUPPET OBONGO,BECAUSE THEY GOT HALF OF AMERICA DUPED BY THIS GUY, SO MUCH SO OUR GOV. GOT AWAY WITH BORROWING 12.8 TRILLION OF TAXPAYER MONEY WITH INTEREST FROM THE FED, SO THEY COULD GIVE IT TO BANKS,SO THEY COULD LEND IT BACK TO THE TAXPAYERS WITH INTEREST AGAIN???THIS ACT OF INSANITY IS ONLY POSSIBLE BECAUSE A MAJORITY OF AMERICA IS EITHER DUPED BY OBONGO OR THEY ARE ASLEEP.

hahahaha!    

Oh please give it a rest and shut up already. It doesn't matter what Obama does or doesn't do you people will find something to b*tch and gripe over. If he had gone to a regular restaurant you'd be complaining just as much... the guy can't sneeze (or take a day to be with his kids) and you morons are acting like he is selling crack on a street corner. Where was your concern over the last 8yrs? Where were you blowhards of justice then?? Short of pulling 12 billion dollars out of his a** to cover the THEFT of our last president , Obama will never do right by most of you idiots .. and even then I'm sure some dope will still complain about something stupid (like a 'long form' birth certificate as opposed to the normal ones we all show when needed.. idiot). What a shameful bunch of losers. What is really embarassing is that people like you aren't just on this site but on other more respected sites as well. And we wonder why the rest of the world think we are fools.

Well said bro!!!

Get over it
I am guessing that you are referring to the 12 TRILLION dollars in spending Obama is doing? Yea, I guess your right lets put more and more debt on our childrens children. I personally dont give a damn what the rest of the world "views" us as. Who does the rest of the world ALWAYS turn to for help and then demonize us! You just need to keep buying into everything Obama says and I sure hope you didnt miss his speech in Egypt today. He is doing a great job on his apology tour! That is all Obama does is apology after apology about how horrible America is in his eyes!

Unlike the rest of us poor have nin America, Obama has got it to throw away now. And he probably gets reimbursed by the tax payers anyway. I mean its not HIS money what does he care right? Trillions spent & nothing has been done for the average American worker.

So the Muslim Socialist has zero problems with spending 12 trillion dollars that we don't have to Federalize everything in the country, no problem spending tax payers money on lavish nightly White House meals and date nights with his wife, so I'm curious to know why the prick was so stingy with using a few more of our tax dollars to give the girl a decent tip? I mean damn Bo, don't stop now!!!
