Local Woman Waiting Until Opportune Moment When Barista’s Back Is Turned to Choose “No Tip”

Published Friday, November 3rd, 2017

Quickly dropping her smile, local woman Leslie Turner expertly struck “no tip” as soon as the barista turned his back to make her drink, scribbling her signature, and smiling just in time for the barista to return with her medium almond milk low-calorie vanilla latte with light, stiff foam.

“I really do feel bad not tipping," Turner admitted, "and when they’re watching it just makes it so hard, you know looking into their eyes and clicking no,” she explained, lowering her voice with each word.

“And he does make the best lattes,” she added.

At press time, Turner also pulled the same trick at salad restaurants, boutique clothing stores, farmer’s markets, and in Ubers.
