I only did about 6 months as a server. If it takes you a year to learn what it's like to be in that position then you will likely spend more than a year at it.

now do we know for sure this guy is an actual pastor? not some schlub jotting that down in the hopes of going viral?

if it is true, the guy is an unloving, fake toad of a man.

pastors can tip. Jesus saves...and so should you.

The worse service I have ever gotten at a restaurant has always and I mean always when the automatic tip was included.

I used to work as a river guide where tipping is also customary and if you want to argue about monopolized time I would have groups for either whole day or half day. And have either been stiffed or get like $5 after working my ass off to make sure they had a great day, I've even returned tips before because of that. So I don't feel sorry for a waiter or waitress that gets a bad tip because I know I've worked harder then them and still gotten stiffed.

But with that said I've also been tipped as much as $200 for a day trip before which I about shat my pants after getting it

Great logic

I also don't feel sorry when a 5 year old gets belted across the face by his father because when I was that age and I did something wrong my father would punch me straight in the heart and i would get palpitations

Floppin is right, your reasoning sucks

so based on everything that has been said in this thread only self-righteous people have a problem with tipping correct?

And the server was fired from Applebee's for posting the receipt:

http://consumerist.c...fired-from-job/

Earlier this week, we posted a story about a restaurant customer who not only chose to deny the waitress a tip, but also wrote “I Give God 10% Why do you Get 18?” on the receipt. Now we’ve learned that the server who posted the receipt online has been fired.

“I originally posted the note as a lighthearted joke,” says Chelsea, who was dismissed from her job at Applebee’s on Wednesday, as the story began to spread across the Internet. “I thought the note was insulting, but it was also comical. I posted it to Reddit because I thought other users would find it entertaining

We are reaching out to Applebee’s for comment and will update if we receive a reply.

UPDATE: The folks at The Smoking Gun have interviewed the pastor who left the receipt.

“My heart is really broken,” she tells the site. “I’ve brought embarrassment to my church and ministry.”

The pastor claims that though she scratched out the automatic gratuity on the bill, she left a $6 cash tip at the table. She also alleges that the restaurant charged her the 18% tip anyway.

Sooo... it was a lapse in judgement... and out of character... but she called Applebees and complained and the waitress got fired.

Good on this Pastor for feeling bad enough about it to get the girl fired. :(
