Looking back, I don't feel bad at all. Now I wish I took the 50 cents too...
Regarding what someone else said...I actually do see people with means being more careful with money. Poorer people do seem to tip better despite bad service. Just a feeling I have based on my experience...no idea if it's true. I am a good tipper when service is good or even pretty good. This guy was marginal and made a dumb move.
You really have no idea why he brought the $5 instead of singles. And you were too lazy or scared to confront him and correct him on the spot by saying something like, "Hey, get me some singles for this $5."
Wondering why you still don't seem to want to say what was so bad about his service that he didn't deserve a tip in the first place...
