DC Police have taken into custody a former waitress at an Italian restaurant, accussed of credit card fraud, a felony, after receiving several complaints from Gallaudet students with unauthorized charges on their account. The waitress complains to the judge that Gallaudet students who frequented her restaurant never leave a tip, and that she is struggling to make ends meet as a single mother of two. The waitress was released on probation, and ordered to pay an restitution to all those affected. Washington Post investigators noted that the waitress always add the tip to the credit card without the students' knowledge, and this been going on over a year as most students often even don't bother to check the receipts they signed. University officials are planning to add "tipping" workshops in their orientation program for incoming Freshmen in the fall.
