A Twisted Root Burger cashier gave a one cent "Best Butt" discount to a female customer and slashed another penny off the $14.02 bill for being the "Best Looking" customer of the Texas chain restaurant.
While some women may be creeped out by getting a "Best Butt" discount, the customer who received the two cents off her bill enjoyed the compliment, according to Reddit user caraficionado24.
The Reddit user posted the Twisted Root Burger receipt to the website under the headline, "A friend of mine got complimented rather sneakily at Twisted Root Burger."
"She actually laughed about it, she was rather flattered!" caraficionado24 said.
Consumer-friendly website consumerist.com posed the question that the receipt "could also be a clever Photoshop job," but dismissed the theory because a Reddit user who works as Twisted Root Burger said the burger chain's system allows for "fun discounts" to be entered onto a bill.

"Perhaps it's franchise-specific, but as long as the server isn't charging for compliments, it's a harmless way to cheer up someone's day. Or at least, it would cheer up my day," said Consumerist's Mary Beth Quirk.
Twisted Root Burger has seven locations, all in Texas. It's unclear which location the "Best Butt" discount originated from.
The Reddit post has been hugely popular, as it has received nearly 2,000 upvotes and 540 comments by Monday morning.
Reddit users were having fun with the posting.
"YEAH! 2-cent compliments!" exclaimed user Cladonia_furcata.
User HazyCar said the Twisted Root Burger cashier was "just giving their two cents worth" by giving the "Best Butt" discount and the "Best Looking" compliment.
"Penny for your a--," said RedTiger013.
The "Best Butt Discount" receipt is not the only case of creative billing in restaurants.
Back in January, an Asian customer of Papa John's Pizza in Manhattan had her name listed as "lady chinky eyes" on her receipt.
Minhee Cho posted the receipt on her Twitter account and the photo of the stub went viral.
The location's assistant manager apologized for the receipt and Papa John's fired the employee responsible for writing "lady chinky eyes."
"We were extremely concerned to learn of the receipt issue in New York. This act goes against our company values, and we've confirmed with the franchisee that this matter was addressed immediately and that the employee is being terminated," the pizza chain said on its Facebook page. "We are truly sorry for this customer's experience."
