LeSean McCoy tips 20 cents at PYT
PYT, the Northern Liberties burger joint located in the Piazza at Schmidts and known for its crazy burger combinations, posted a picture of a receipt to their Facebook featuring a check from Eagle LeSean McCoy, who tipped at whopping 20 cents on a $61.56 check. That's a .3 percent.
Server Rob Knelly, who has worked at PYT for 3 and a half years, said that McCoy and his three friends were rude and loud the entire time they dined. "I wasn't surprised [by the tip], I saw it coming. They were extremely rude. I kept my cool for as along as I could, where you just don't want them yelling and cursing you," Knelly told me, saying that the party was apparently not happy with their food and asked "What is this s---?."
"It was very loud and not for a family style restaurant," Knelly added.
Knelly could not identify the other patrons as Eagles but noticed their football tattoos. Knelly is not an Eagles fan. He's a Ravens fan. So, Knelly is not having a pro-football kind of day.
Things got better for Knelly, though. Before we chatted, he found $20 outside.
Commenters are skeptical, knowing that these check can be (and have been) easily faked as stunts. I reached out to McCoy's rep who said he was recently made aware of the alleged incident and would get back to me.
