Oops. Today’s villain of the day is Andrew Meyer, a Microsoft employee Seattle, WA. It’s unknown what his side of the story is, but upon leaving Bimbo’s Cantina on Friday, Andrew didn’t leave any money for bartender Victoria Liss. Instead he left the ‘tip’ that she could lose a few pounds. So Victoria did what anyone would do and posted his tip on the internet. The internet is in the process of doing the rest.
And now Dan Savage is involved.
“I’m sure there’s another side to this story—maybe you felt your bartender was rude? rude enough for you to stiff her and attack her for her looks?—but however many sides there are, Andrew, however rude a Capitol Hill bartender can be, I shouldn’t have to tell someone who works at freaking Microsoft about social media. Bartenders can toss shit up on Facebook too. It’s true! And your receipt is all over Facebook. As is your full name, your photograph, your phone number, the name of your employer, the name of your frat, and more. All shit this bartender’s angry friends managed to dig up in a weekend. Now bar owners and bartenders are talking about posting your picture—which they also managed to find—at the doors of their bars and clubs and 86ing you from all of ‘em.”
