(Newser) – A Beverly Hills waiter is looking for a new job after tweeting about Hung actress Jane Adams skipping out on a bill. Adams said she was going to her car to get her checkbook, then sent a rep the next day with payment for lunch—minus tip, the waiter twittered. Adams stormed in a month later, slapped down a $3 tip, then complained to the manager about the Twitter post, he says.

"All she could think about was herself and her pride and her ego," the still-unemployed waiter complained. The waiter probably wouldn't have lasted much longer at the celeb-favored restaurant anyway, Gawker notes. His other Twitter postings while working at Barney Greengrass included noting that musician Ali Harter came in braless and that Office star BJ Novak looked hungover.
