Oregon Couple Tries to Tip Waitress With Crystal Meth

Couple Busted For Tipping Waitress With Meth

After eating dinner together at a local restaurant in Oregon Thursday, a couple decided to leave their waitress a rather unusual tip.

"A beach trip to the north coast sends one couple to jail after police say they left their waitress meth for her tip!"

Yes, it wasn't a $100 bill or a nice note or more than 20%. It was meth.

Police busted 40-year-old Ryan Benson and 37-year-old Erica Manley at the Twisted Fish Steakhouse Thursday night after they reportedly enjoyed dinner and drinks.

According KGW-TV, the couple paid their bill with a gift card, but apparently wanted to leave a little something extra for their waitress in an envelope marked with a question mark.

When the waitress opened it and found crystal meth inside, she wasn't too appreciative and immediately called 911.

The Twisted Fish's manager told The Oregonian, "She was like 'Whoa -- what the ...?' We're not a little dive bar or hole in the wall. We're a classy place."

When officers arrived at the steakhouse, they confirmed the substance in the envelope was, in fact, meth and placed both Benson and Manley under arrest.

And when officers later searched the couple's car and motel room, they found - you guessed it - even more meth and items used to make the drug as well.

Benson and Manley were booked on possession of methamphetamine and manufacture of methamphetamine. They are currently behind bars awaiting arraignment.

Guess what? You don't know what you are talking about. What "welfare dollars" would you be talking about... surely not no-bid government contracts worth billions with mega, international, corporations? Probably not 'farm' subsidies to huge agrabuisnesses? Not tax cuts for billionaires, I'm pretty sure. Go ahead and carefully explain what "welfare" is likely to be available to these tweekers.

Sometimes I go to bingo and I can be a heavy player, spending at least 70 to 80 bucks in a session, more if I decide to play rippies. But I earn my money and I choose to spend it this way. Beginning of the month most people get paid, so I know it gets crowded. But when those welfare checks come out though, boy howdy, you are lucky to even find a table to sit down at. They got extra tables that the parlor will bring out when this happens. Yup, our tax dollars at work. Every time it gets over crowded, I say to my bingo friends, "Our tax dollars at work".

I think it was studpid of the couple to leave illegal drugs as a tip. Most waiteresses expect a cash tip or that amount added to the credit card payment. While it is wrong to do meth and even worse to manufacture it the couple would not have been busted had they just paid a regular money tip. It just prooves that Meth messes up your judgement. The couple has no else to blame but themselves for being so studpid. A friend of Jimmy K

the correctly spelled words are as follows: stupid (where did you get a 'd' if it's not even pronounced?), waitresses, proves.
