Re: Applebee’s fires waitress who posted receipt from pastor complaining about auto-tip
Years back, Applebee's changed their menu and marketing to attract a certain demographic. Ever drive by and see who's going in & out (usually hanging around the parking lot in clusters, too?) They should change their name to Bananabee's.

Piss poor excuse for even drunk food since 2005.

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
 Quoting: Charlie Frost


This.

I generally just round of my bills at restaurants (unless the service was actually special or downright bad).

But then again waiters and waitresses actually get a living wage here (on the flipside restaurants are actually more expensive on menu prices though).

Re: Applebee’s fires waitress who posted receipt from pastor complaining about auto-tip
I'm on the pastor's side. I would not react well if there was a built in charge for a voluntary payment.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 33126688


Almost all restaurants in this country have that policy and it's even posted somewhere on the menu. If you bring a large party of people in, and the wait staff has to serve all of you assholes and clean up after your asses, (because large parties usually sit at the table longer laughing it up and talking), then there is a service charge. Read the fucking menu, or ask them the policy before you and your herd make a fucking mess and send a frazzled wait staff back and forth fetching stuff for you.

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


: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


Are you stupid? If you're short on money don't go out to eat. WTF? Common sense people! The tip was $6. Pay the damn bill and move on. That pastor brought it on herself for being an asshole.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 33373528


No you are the stupid one.

If I have enough money to pay for a meal and the tax...that's enough money to go to the restaurant.

You morons are complaining about the customers instead of complaining about the owners of the restaurants who ,customarily, fuck over their wait-staff.

I don't go to a restaurant and plan on paying the wait-staff. I go to eat dinner/lunch.

Like I said earlier, if you want to make a steady salary, leave the industry that depends upon compassion.

Paying anymore that 5-7% to a waiter who takes my order, brings my foods, fills my cup with water and brings the bill is downright insane.

If the restaurants thought that their (waitstaff) duties were more valuable, then they would increase their wages.

Now, for the morons who constantly use the wait-staff that is different,

Re: Applebee’s fires waitress who posted receipt from pastor complaining about auto-tip
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.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 8260452


Actually, it's not just blacks. It's the tendency in any groups of that size.

Formal analysis (game theory) indicates people tend to defect from a game (sort of cheat) when they feel safe and unidentifiable while feeling hidden in a group. The effect usually begins in groups of around 6 or 7 individuals, and is really pronounced once the group passes eight members.

So the †ack-on tip is intended to stop the defecting Timmy and Sally from not leaving a tip even though Billy and Terry and Ben and Stephanie did. (Although Billy and Terry only left a quarter and a dime and Stephanie and Ben only left pennies. But, who could really tell? And that's the point.

The effect occurs when people feel safe and hidden in a group. Reinhold Niebuhr also expanded on the effect in his book Moral Man and Immoral Society. In it, he explored the reasons people do things as groups that they never would as individuals.

You need to stick to fast food and take out if you don't want to tip. If you expect someone to take care of you during your meal, you need to be tipping them. If not, take your food home or go to McDonald's. The only point you're proving when you don't tip is that you're A)An asshole, B)Poor and shouldn't be eating out, C)Ignorant, or D)All of the above.

You are an idiot.

I have more than enough money to go out to eat every single day.

That has absolutely nothing to do with the waitstaff.

The Waitstaff does not "take care of me".

(I have not even discussed the overall poor service that I have received....and to have the "gall" to EXPECT a certain percentage of the total...wow)

Most waitstaff only have two more duties than a McDonalds' worker.

Making sure that my cup is filled with water over a 30-60 minute period is worth $2...nothing more.

Not to mention the other 4-6 tables that the waiter is waiting on who will probably pay the same or more over the same length of time.

$2 X 4 = $8 an hour

$2 X 5 = $10 an hour

$2 X 6 = $12 an hour

That ^^^ is more than enough. If you want more money, then leave the industry.

As a customer, I am not concerned with pitying the waitstaff because the owners pay them so little.

I am concerned about my food.

 Quoting: 9teen


Why are all Christians so cheap? I see this all the time. We have a pastor who lives on our street. He constantly asks my good friend to watch his dog for weeks at a time. He promises to pay her but doesn't. He doesn't even leave enough food for the dog and she has to go out and buy more.

Waitresses note that Christians, (the people who come in all dressed up on Sunday morning) never tip well. Christians are also against helping the poor. They are greedy and seem almost evil.

I ALWAYS pay 20% tips to the waiters and waitresses that wait on me. IF someone gives us horrible service, we still give them 10% but that is very rare. These waitresses and waiters get less than minimum wage and must live on their tips. Knowing this, I always give 20% and sometimes more. But then I am an atheist, so that should explain this to you.

Re: Applebee’s fires waitress who posted receipt from pastor complaining about auto-tip
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.
 Quoting: RonP

EXACTLY, idiots!
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!"
 Quoting: WendyWho

People do not understand this type of concept. Servers at the end of the day have to claim to the IRS at least 10% of our food sales. Most now make you claim every cent. So this chick just had to claim @ least 3.50 she did grt. We are not out to rob any of you. Butwe do alot of work you dont see so-

"I give God 10%," Bell wrote on the receipt, scratching out the automatic tip and scribbling in an emphatic "0" where the additional tip would be. "Why do you get 18?" (There were more than eight people in Bell's party, triggering the auto-tip.)

The problem is that the only private information posted was the signature. When you write something to the fact "why should I give YOU.." it becomes a personal note, if the patron had behaved in a manner such as speaking to a manager to remove the auto-grat, then fine, but once she posted a note to the waitress, it is no more than that, a note. As long as no credit card information was released, I see why the issue with posting such a note. She wrote a nasty reply and signed her name, it has become nothing more than a letter. If I had been such a jackass who wrote something idiotic like that I would expect to suffer the consequences.

Re: Applebee’s fires waitress who posted receipt from pastor complaining about auto-tip
If the woman was a pastor then she wasn't Christian. Right in the Bible it shows that only men head the congregations. And her attitude wasn't Christian either. She is a wolf in sheep's clothing. Satan would be proud.

Re: Applebee’s fires waitress who posted receipt from pastor complaining about auto-tip
I think we all should call Applebys and give em HELL for firing the waitress.

All she did was report the BS from a so called "Pastor"

Whatever she is, she sure ain't about the Lord's business.

Damn

That is the solution, once applebee's bottom line is affected thats when they will do something about it. Just tell your friends and their friends not to visit the establishment, maybe when the money it costs them over this nightmare works out they will change their ways

Applebee's response to my email ...

If you are contacting us regarding the receipt that is going around the internet, please know as a company that relies on literally hundreds of thousands of incredibly hard working team members, we can assure you that we and our franchisees value and support them and their efforts. However this unfortunate situation has nothing to do with work. The employee involved did not wait on the guest or party. Regrettably, and without the restaurant's knowledge, she took it upon herself to take a customer's receipt, with the name clearly visible, and posted it online with her own commentary. That is a clear violation of our guests’ privacy and against the franchisee's company policy that the team member was provided when hired. We simply cannot accept behavior that compromises the safety and privacy our guests have every right to expect and deserve. Please note that we are also not excusing the guest's behavior in this matter and the unacceptable comment she wrote on the receipt, which is offensive to us and all our hard working team members. To be clear, the 18% gratuity added to large party tickets was paid by the guests party. This is a regrettable situation and we wish it had never happened. We hope this provides you with some additional insight.

Please be aware that this is an automated reply. We suggest keeping this email so you have your case number for future reference.

It's been years since I've been in one, just not worth the $$$
