Stiffing the working stiffs

There is apparently a run-out-on-the tab artist who has been frequenting the bars lately.  This guy was arrested Saturday for stiffing Fenians on a $70 bar tab:

However, due to some good ole-fashioned diligence by a couple of employees,  he was caught by JPD down the street:

Bartender had to pay the tab, of course.  JPD sources said he had also pulled the same stunt at Fondren Public last week.  There are reports on Facebook of two other restaurants he allegedly hit as well.   He is from Florida. The accused is said to walk with a limp, use a fake Australian accent, and has tattoos.

To be honest, the bartenders at these places are so hoity-toidy. I am on this guy's side!

Apparently he only has one set of clothes also.

Just another mouth to feed in the county jail. Probably will foot the bill for his mental Rx also.

Fenians workers do tend to be a bit snobby and I never have been able to figure that. I tried to like the place several times but they make it so hard.

FP is a great time.

What a dick. When I was bartender working my way through school, orphan checks were deducted from our pay. And 9:19 and 9:42, who's really the snob? Are you some high maintenance pain in the ass? If you don't like the service you receive don't go there, but folks who work for a living don't deserve to get ripped off.

So it's ok to steal from people who are "hoity-toidy?" Right. Maybe you should sign up to defend this guy in court.

MS Code § 75-73-9 (2013) makes that a FELONY if greater than $25.

One could argue that "be fined not less than One Hundred Dollars ($ 100.00) and not exceeding One Thousand Dollars ($ 1,000.00) or imprisoned in the State Penitentiary for a term of one (1) year, or both" is a bit harsh over $25... but it's our law, nonetheless.

That statute has been used twice in the last century.

9:42 says.....don't be so sensitive. I would never walk out on a tab. I just don't go back to Fenians. They don't act like they appreciate new customers. I call that snobby. jeez with the attitude.

Your job is to serve the customer. I'm sure the owner of Fenian's might disagree with you saying "if you don't like the service you receive, don't go there". There's way too many servers that think that just because they sling booze at a particular bar, they don't have to remember that it is their job to serve the customer. Period.

I'd love some audio clips of the fake Australian accent. I'm wondering if he's halfway-good at it, or cringe-worthy bad.

Likely cringe-worthy bad. Phony bastard.

Bartender had to pay the tab? I doubt it.

Yes, every bartender/waiter/waitress who has a walk out foots the bill. I guess the times you walked out you thought you were sticking it to the man?

Is They A Prollem Occifer? said...

After drinking seventy dollars worth of booze, how did he manage to walk down to Walgreens? Is there a video of the 'Australian Shuffle'?

Part of being a good bartender is being able to tell a thief when you see one.
Not all people have that skill. Those that do not should find another occupation where lack judgment does cost them.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease.
