A friend who was a server at Bee's posted a copy of a 0% tip credit receipt last week. She was upstaged by this event. Anyone who has had to work for tips can confirm that 'church' groups are notoriously lousy tippers. As an airport taxi driver, I get NO hourly wage. I, too, blame the corporations for this problem, but don't punish the workers. That "pastor" wouldn't last a week in a REAL job.

Re: I give God 10%, why do you get 18?' - pastor's message to waitress goes viral
also on the tithing thing, I thought the tithe was suppose to be 30% not 10. I swear I read that somewhere in the bible many years ago. I know there is a verse about ten , but there's also somewhere else a mention of a 1/3.

There are different takes on the same topics in the bible. For example - the Noahs ark animals. You always hear about it being 2 of each kind - 2 by 2. But that's not the case. Elsewhere in the bible it says that there were 7 of all clean animals and 2 unclean.

I'm reading now that Applebees said on their twitter that there was no cash tip given. So if the pastor is the source of this info - not only is she a biatch but a liar.

That was very uncool.
And very NOT-Christian like bahavior.

As a Christian myself, I get really agitated by other Christians who act like this and just give people another reason to have a negative view of people of faith.

I would just like to say I always tip my servers the best I can afford, even if the service isn't that good.

Do unto others as you would have them do to you. What if you were the server relying on tips for your income?? That's how I look at.

That Pastor, whoever he is, has got some issues..If he was my pastor, I'd make a motion to boot him out the very next Church business meeting if he didn't go apologize and make it right.

That was just stupid. period.
 Quoting: Fuddy-Duddy



I agree.. Also, if one has never worked as a waitress, waiter or server they have no idea how dependent these people are on their tips.

Back in the day when I waitressed.. they paid waaay below minimum wage, not sure how it works today.

I agree. It's why I rarely ever dine out. When I call in a pick up order I even give them something for the simple fact that I didn't dine in. But that tip usually comes out to around 10-12%.

yes..only from the minds of applebee's..


My mistake sir, I’m sure Jesus will pay for my rent and groceries,” the waitress, Chelsea Welch, wrote in the headline of her post.

The Applebee’s receipt indicated that an 18 percent gratuity had been added to the check, since the dinner party included eight or more people.

But the angry customer scratched out the $6.29 top and wrote “0” instead, arguing that she should not tip the waitress more than she pays God.

Why would an imaginary figment of the imagination need 10% of anything? Anyone with a few braincells to rub together knows that 10% goes to the guy who owns and/or preaches at a church.

Re: I give God 10%, why do you get 18?' - pastor's message to waitress goes viral
The whole issue is ridiculous anyway as "tithing" is NOT a New Testament requirement. It is strictly OT law for the Jews under the law.

Christians under grace give not of necessity (the Jews did). ALL of the supposed verses used to enforce tithing are either OT applications or verses applied before the cross. As we (Christians only) are commanded to "rightly divide the word of truth" we know that the only way to arrive at tithing for the NT saint is to "WRONGLY divide the word of truth".

Giving under grace is is based on as "the Lord has prospered you, so give". It is never, ever based on 10%. It is also wise to note the Jews were not commanded to give MONEY, but rather food or grain.

If you can't afford to leave a tip, you can't afford to eat out. Waiting tables is hard work, go screw yourselves you cheap selfish pieces of crap.
 Quoting: Samuel Bachelor Of Science


:lovecomm: No you go and screw yourself. 10% or 12% is plenty for a tip. Greedy waiters and grasping restaurant owners who are looking to stick it to their customers should realise that they ain't going to take it any more.

Re: I give God 10%, why do you get 18?' - pastor's message to waitress goes viral
I go to several different restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I tip from 30% to 50%. My bill is 30% to 50% less than everyone elses at the table. The server is very attentive to my needs. The bar tender personally delivers any drink I order. The line cook/chef always comes to the table to explain the dish I've ordered and ask if I'd like to make any substitutions or changes.

I realise that the server, bar tender and cook can't do this for everyone; but, they do it for me. Bills the same; service is out of this world.

Tip well and often. Or be a prick - choice is yours.

In most restaurants waiters and waitresses are paid much less than minimum wage per hour. It is 'understood' that they will make the remainder of their pay in tips. If people cannot afford to help a waiter or waitress make a living wage, then they should consider buying food at establishments that don't use them, like McDonalds.

I'm confused. Isn't the tip already added to the Amount 39.43? It says Additional Tip at the bottom, she puts 0, and agrees to pay the total amount. Doesn't this mean the total already includes 18% and she doesn't want to tip anything extra?

Hey Apollyon, I agree with you..what these restaurant chains are doing is wrong.. They should pay their employees a fair wage and they are milking the customers and not treating the wait staff right either..meanwhile the top dogs are reaping the benefits.

However, it doesn't change the current situation the waiters and waitresses are in at the present time. They work really hard and tips are all they have to rely on to make ends meet..it shouldn't be that way, but we can't make them (the poor wait staff) pay for what the elites are doing to us all....which is just sticking it to us all and laughing all the way to their tropical vacation homes.

 Quoting: Chip


I don't agree with the mandatory tipping either, simply on principle. But I've also never been a waitress, having to rely on tips. It would be a big problem if people were able to take up a large table for a long time and then not leave the server a tip.

I've always wondered about the busboys - do they share in the servers tips or do they just get a flat and higher amount per hour?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 5213553



I think it depends on the establishment.

Some places all the waiters/waitresses throw all their tips in a "kitteh" and split with the busboys. Some don't.

No, the pastor crossed off the 'mandatory for large group' tip and just paid the bill instead. The additional tip section is if the customer wanted to add more than the $6.29 amount.

IMHO, the pastor should at least have given 10% of the bill, just as she gives 10% of her wages to her church. Of course we know the purpose of the tithing is to pay for housing and keeping a clergy and worship space for the congregation. If their clergy or any other were driving around in expensive cars, having expensive trips and wearing expensive clothing while the congregation members are looking poor, then I'd question that place of worship. (This was happening to my uncle-in-law and his wife. The clergy looked rich and drove a nice car, while my in-laws drove a beater that broke down often and they gave 28% of their retirement money to the church. Talk about being suckered!)
