Speaking of tipping...

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. :(

Self rightous *****

Pastor was apparently a female. Stop saying "this guy."

That said, color me unsurprised by the mentality that caused her to not want to tip, and leave a snarky comment. It's the same mentality that allows her to believe that there is some holy force out there that will ultimately save her from herself.

Maybe the pastor should have realized what her actions would look like in the view of a wider audience instead of the one or two people she assumed it would go to...

Also, the waitress who was fired should have used Paint or something to make the signature unreadable... Her bad on that...

For what it is worth Applebee's had to fire her.

Yeah, I'm sure they have corporate policies about such... still, it's on this "pastor" for calling and making a bigger deal about it. What good was it gonna do? She's the one that was the asshole.

What exactly are you insinuating here, HP? She participated in an occupy protest, what's your angle?

That was just the picture I found.

But now we know she is a smelly dirty hippie.

What kind of fuged up logic is this?

I was a youth ski instructor for 12 years. My lessons were 6.5 hours long and included lunch. Of those 6.5hours we were on the snow for at least 5.5 hours. I've never had a more physically demanding job than teaching children (I'm talking as young as 4) how to ski in groups.

Take 28 four year olds, because the retards in registration didn't cut off signups and overbooked, on a ski mountain by your self and get stiffed by half of them and then come back to me.

I've also worked as a river guide for three summers so I know the comparison.

You should feel bad for someone who gets shafted out of their lively hood, especially if they are doing their job with some modicum of competency. I've also worked as a server and bar tender, off and on, for the better part of a decade. It's no fuging cake walk.

Your statement is about on par with having been in a car wreck, then when seeing another car wreck happen, you just drive on by because, well, "mine was worse".

I've worked 7 seasons in the last 5 years as a river guide, guided in Australia and Brazil for 2 of those.

My point was you don't see me running to the internet to voice my displeasure with a group after I spent an entire day with a group and got shafted, and waitresses and waiters spend maybe 1-2 hours tops with a group so they only lose out on that time, not get a entire day wrecked, it's not Car wreck to car wreck, it's scraped knee to car wreck. one ruins a day the other ruins a hour its not the same.

And I'm not saying I'm completely ok with it either but it's as you know just part of the business as I knew it when I was working as a guide, it all gets balanced out in the end and if you are consistently getting stiffed you may want to think more about what your doing wrong not that it's always the customers fault. when I worked as a guide if I didn't get a tip more often then not I would think about what I might not have done right on my end, not always blaming the customer. now there are times when you will still do everything perfect and get stiffed but that is usually the exception not the rule.

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

not saying you have to agree with it, but I guess you could say I'm tired about hearing waiters and waitresses bitch and moan about things that in large part are considered part of the Job, as I told Floppin, I've been shafted worse and didn't go running to the internet to complain about it, it's just part of the Job.

and yeah I know the girl has been fired but, but she should have known it was a possibility when the thing went viral Applebee's doesn't want their customers feel like if they get lousy service and stiff the waitress they are going to get ostracized for it through the media. yeah it sounds good to the waitresses and waiters out there but as a company you don't want that.

the Girl let someone else's stupidity get her fired, because of her reaction to that. you have to be smarter then that.

Terrible example for a pastor to set.

Don't like a restaurant's tipping policy? Go elsewhere. Don't be a jerk about it.
