One customer put his money on the line in a ruse to score a date with his server – but it didn’t quite turn out as he’d hoped.
Cassie Holland, who works at a golf course as a cart girl, shared a TikTok (@cassholland) of her holding up what appeared to be three $100 bills to the camera. So far, so normal. But, with a closer look, viewers realised there was something different about the cash.
“What the hell is this? $300 dollars… In half,” Cassie says as she separates the bills to show the three notes ripped in half.
She goes on: “You’re probably thinking someone tried to trick me and short me. But oh no, this guy had bigger plans in mind.”
Cassie goes on to tell how a golfer came in and bought some drinks with his friend. He was “tipping good and being really nice” and then “asked if I could go to dinner with him”. Even when she said no, insisting she was busy, he responded:“Well cancel your plans and come with me.”
Remaining insistent, she turned him down again.
But the man was clearly determined to get what he wanted. According to Cassie, the man then took out the ripped $100 bills and, in a cheesy pick-up line, offered to give Cassie three halves of the $100 bills. He promised the other halves if she met him “in front of this casino” later in the evening.
“So clearly he already had this whole idea planned out,” Cassie said.
Cassie, however, was not charmed. “I’m like, ‘No, no I’m not going to take it, don’t, don’t do that,’” she says.
Yet when the man and his pals left, Cassie noticed the ripped cash had been placed in her golf cart’s drink holder.
As she showed off the ripped money again, she said: “So now I have this, just completely useless $300.”
In reaction, Cassie described feeling “mad” at first but then noted: “I don’t really lose anything. He’s the dumbass that lost $300.”
Though now, she’s not quite sure what to do with her damaged dollars.
“I can understand once you have the three halves you probably want the other ones,” the TikToker mused about his dating technique and pondered on whether he has done this to another woman previously.
Without a date, and $300 down, it’s safe to say that the man was the one who lost out. “It’s funny because he probably thinks he’s a genius but he really just lost $300. For nothing,” Cassie concluded.
Since posting about her terrible tipper, Cassie’s video has 1.2m views and nearly 200,000 likes, along with thousands of comments from people advising her on what to do with the ripped money.
One person wrote: “Take them to the bank and have them measure it, if it’s more than 51% of the bill then they will give you a complete $100.”
“If you have 51% and the serial numbers you got $300 bestie,” another person said.
While others were shocked that the man would do such a thing.
Someone added: “Bribery, men are something else.”
“You go girl. Don’t let them try to control you like that,” another person replied.
But it didn’t end there.
It seems that the story going viral caused the man to have a change of heart because. in a follow-up video, Cassie asked while giggling: “So guess who showed up today?”
“The guy who gave me $300 ripped in half. Turns out he saw my video and realized what he did wasn’t very smart.”
She then showed viewers her taped-up dollars.
In the end, the man handed over the other half of the bills and said: “Well there’s the $300 for you, and you know where to find me if you wanna ruin my night tonight.”
But Cassie wasn’t having any of it, adding: “You know what would really ruin his night? If I didn’t show up at all. Again.”
She directly addresses the man at the end of the video and says: “Buddy if you’re watching, thank you, but like I said before, I’m going to accept this as an inconvenience fee.”
Maybe now he’ll take a hint.
