What the fuck is it with you Americans and tipping? Either come clean with how much you pay your customer service staff or shut the fuck up.

whatever
Take your dogma and shove it!

Life is not about what happens to you, it's about how you deal with it.

Anyone who owns a business knows how important keeping each customers privacy is, even though the woman was a snob, the waitress had no business posting a cc receipt for public viewing with the customers name showing, white black whatever, she gets no sympathy.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1244253


Oh boo hoo.

She was in a party of 8, automatic gratuity was automatically added to the bill. Even worse, she acts like a woman of God but can't be charitable in the least.
Her reputation being ruined was her consequence, and she earned it in full.
 Quoting: jadksn 33439635


Remind me and all other employers never to employ you. Your a walking lawsuit with that attitude. How would you feel if it was your business and one of your employees done that, then you got sued for every penny you have. Business gone, house gone, family on the street, well done.

We in the UK dont have a tipping culture, only if we think we have had good service will we tip. I wouldnt even eat in a place that had the nerve to auto put it on, I would get up an not pay a penny if they did.

Bet the pastor used it the receipt as an church expense!
And the pastor probably drives a car registered as a church vehicle!

It's black people's fault that automatic gratuity was added to bills in the first place. They always cause the most trouble and tip the least, if at all.

Everyone knows that waitress was being racist by posting that. She wouldnt have done that if the customer was white.
Applebees hates black people! Lets go picket the place
How soon before Applebees will be sued for discriminating.

Sorry, wait-staff at restaurants do not deserve more than 5% of the before tax total on the bill.

More than likely a waiter has more than a single table for an entire hour. (And if they don't that's not my problem).

A 5% tip puts them more than on-par with minimum wage per an hour.

If they want more than minimum wage, they need to get some ambition and go to a different industry.

Sorry, that is the hard truth.

GLP is strange.

One day the site is all about how the capitalist system and hard work/ambition pays off regardless of the wage.

The next day the site cries about low tipping in the free market.

I am confused.

Paying 15-18% of my total to someone who does nothing more than bring food and pour water is fucking stupid.

Now, I am more interested in the idea of tipping the cooks.

You should give careful consideration before returning to a restaurant where you have left a 5% tip. Enjoy your meal.

The pastor is an idiot. The pastor was referring to giving 10% of TOTAL earnings to God. The pastor was not being asked to give 18% of his total earnings to the place.

The server gets 18% of the bill, not 18% of the pastors total earnings.

Re: Applebee’s fires waitress who posted receipt from pastor complaining about auto-tip
Party of EIGHT with a bill of $34.00
They probably all sat around sucking coffee and ordered one appetizer that they shared. Coffee refills, taking up space and not even tipping.
What is the phone number of the Applebees? St. Louis "area".
I want to call them and ask how the pastor got OUT of the auto tip when it is stated on the menu that the tip WILL be added. And that Applebees is going to be losing my business as well as many other people's business.

BTW--the waitress didn't show the credit card number
actually what "privacy" is expected?
how many security cameras are at the Applebees?

Re: Applebee’s fires waitress who posted receipt from pastor complaining about auto-tip
lovecomm I agree and unless the restaurant made it clear that a ridiculously high 18% automatic gratuity was going to be added to the bill
then she had every right not to pay it.

10% is plenty. She's lucky to have a job and should understand that most of her customers are also short on $$$.
 Quoting: 9teen


If someone is short on money, they have no business wasting the waiters/ waitress' time going out. Stay home and cook. Many states don't require wait staff to make minimum wage, so they are getting paid 2-6.00 an hour.

By the way, according to wallstreet journal, 18% is the average tip these days. 10% was the average in 1950.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27790965


cheerusa That's a load of crap. OK for Wall Street Banksters perhaps but not the rest of us. If the lower tipping customers stay away then the restaurant won't even be in business. If they don't like it then get another job, that's what I had to do.

Re: Applebee’s fires waitress who posted receipt from pastor complaining about auto-tip
The patron should have been notified up front and agree to the 18 % prior to service. I certainly like to know when I am paying for something. If this is a restaurant policy then that is what it is. If she didn't want to pay it, I guess that is her choice. Maybe the service was horrible.

I understand the frustration of the waitress, but that is her job and whatever someone wishes to give her is what she has to accept. It is just the nature of the business. The Pastor broke the first commandment by doing what she did. The waitress violated the privacy of the Pastor. Whether or not it is a criminal act, I don't know.

Both of them would have been better off just letting it go. They are both personally responsible for ruining this portion of their life. Now I see a bunch of other people getting wrapped up in their little moment, as if we all don't have enough of our own stuff going on.

A boycott of Applebees won't hurt Applebees. They will just lay off more employees. Let's not hurt more in this fiasco. If you don't want to go to Applebees, don't go for the reason I don't go. The food sucks, plain and simple.

I've worked in restaurants most of my working life. I was married to a Sous Chef for 5 years of well known fine dining steak house.. That being said, I've almost never seen a case where the 18% gratuity wasn't written somewhere on the menu, clear as day. It's SOP that parties of more than 8 people are charged the 18%.

I can't say anything about this woman that hasn't been pointed out already. What kills me is that most people don't realize their tip doesn't go to only the waitress. A lot of places require the server to tip out a percentage of their tips for the host, bus boys, and sometimes the bartender. She fucked more than just the waitress, when her problem should have been taken up on the corporate level. When you ring in people's meals, you ring it in by seat number, which is how food runners know who gets what when they bring your food and drinks out. Once 8 seats have food rung in, the 18% gets put on by the computer, not the server.

It was a $7 tip, wasn't it? Fuck her. Christians are their own worst enemy. "I can be an asshole, as long as it's in the name of GOD!"

wtf the restaurant is the one fucking over the waitress with minimum wage short hours and no benefits. while the owners rake in a 1000% markup per person and suck in enormous amounts of money. but expect us customers who they are fucking ripping off to subsidize their employees so they stay there and make a meager living

fuck that bullshit.

if ya can afford it then tip

but wtf here is an example

Also, the server didn't post the receipt, her co-worker did and they were both fired. Someone posted that the pastor probably charged the lunch to the church's expense acct. as a "meeting" of some sort, I agree that's probably true.

Pastor should have just sucked it up and let it go instead of being all high and mighty about her giving 10% to God. I do agree that her personal info. should not have been posted on-line but don't feel badly that she is embarrassed.
