Unfortunately, this isn't a joke. A pastor left the note to the left here for a server at an Applebee's Restaurant. If you haven't heard about this story yet, the whole thing can be found here on yahoo.
I found this quite unbelievable, yet now the story has continued. The server who uploaded the receipt (a different one it seems) has been fired from the restaurant because the pastor apparently not only needed to stiff one waitress a tip, but was so embarrassed from the attention her little note garnered when it went online, she wanted someone to lose their job.
My thoughts - you should be embarrassed. This woman undoubtedly works hard. I've waited tables at several different restaurants. You deal with cranky cooks, grumpy customers, you're on your feet, you're usually understaffed and it's all you can do to race around without dropping plates. When you get home you are exhausted, your feet hurt and those tips are all you have to show for it. So this pastor wants to know why she has to tip 18% and she only gives God 10%? Maybe because this server only makes around $2.35/hour before tips. See if you can survive on that. And if you can't afford to go to dinner AND afford a tip for your server, then stay home and eat a bologna sandwich. Shame on you!!!
