Waitress stiffed: We only tip citizens"

Instead of getting a tip from her customers, a waitress in Virginia got what she calls a "nasty and racist" note.

It happened last week in the city of Harrisonburg.  Sadie Elledge is a waitress at the Jess' Lunch.  She says the couple she was waiting on refused to speak to her and would only nod their heads at her.

She says the uncomfortable situation took a turn for the worse when she went to get their check.  The couple wrote, "We only tip citizens" and did not leave anything for the young lady.

"I was born her, but I am Mexican and Honduran," Elledge says.  "It shouldn't even matter.  I just feel like it's just rude and disrespectful.  I had never met them.  I've never done anything to them."

The restaurant's owner, Angeliki Floros, says that the couple is banned from her establishment, at least for now.

"I would like for them to not come here unless they regret what they did," Floros says.
