This.

You're darn well not supposed to put a customer's private information online.

The employee should have just let it go. Some customers are jerks. If you respond to them with aggression or anything less than professionalism, in many industries, you're likely to get fired.

The receipt is part of the company's work product. Most employers have rules about making things like that public. Especially financial records. Nevermind that her conduct was completely unbecoming someone in customer service/retail.

And yes, the pastor is a whiny little *****. But again, some customers are jerks.

Ok but there's no personal information there other than her signature. You guys act like her SSN is on the damn thing.

I do wonder why this blew up so big? There are multiple blogs and websites dedicated to these type of things. Must be the religious angle.

The pastor was a douche. And the waitress was not acting professionally. They both got what they deserved

I would question her status as a "minister", but it's not like there's any standards for that anyway...every charlatan and two-bit scam artist can call themselves a minister. All they need as a minimum are a rented-out storefront and some fools willing to give them 10% of their paychecks every Sunday for a half-baked message and some canned music.

Anyway, I'm sure the store is within its rights to fire the employee but that hardly makes it right, if you know what I'm saying.

EDIT: Jesus, I didn't even read the article fully. The chruch actually is literally a downtown storefront. Now I'm just depressed I was that prescient about it.

True on both fronts.

I would have still posted that receipt anyway, but without a single identifying piece of information on it. It's funny regardless, and doesn't need to have blame attached to it.

I hear that churchgoers can be the worst tippers. Some folks I know who were servers at a restaurant next to a church, hated the post-Sunday mass crunch. Tons of people would come in, but many of them would leave church brochures in lieu of tip. Sure, Jesus might save you, but it ain't gonna pay the rent!

A relative of mine gets these kind of receipts all the time from cheap religious people. One time, one of them left a $5 dollar bill, but when he unfolded it, it was an preaching ad to accept Jesus and go to church.

Yeah, this. She didn't just call for the waitress to be fired, either, but her co-workers, too.

On Wednesday, the pastor reportedly contacted the Applebee’s location where she worked and demanded that everyone involved — including the managers — be fired.

She plans on delivering a sermon over the weekend on "forgiveness." What hypocrisy.

Of course there are times where there is bad service and all the like but I also feel people find any old excuse not to tip. If you're going to be a cheapass, go to Burger King.
At the same time, it's your right as a customer to leave a ****** tip if you want to. That's why the majority of places leave it blank for you to leave the amount you think is appropriate. Is it a jerk thing to do? Yes, but it's still within your right. Part of being a waiter/waitress means knowing how to deal with bad customers. Posting their receipts on line is not one of them.

However, in this case when the tip is included because of the party size, you are obligated to conform to their policy. Refusing to do so is theft. This woman trying to use religion to justify her actions is an outright embarrassment and offensive. But the waitress still should not have posted the receipt online.

Last year, Peyton Manning gave a waiter a 50% tip (18% built in, added $200 himself). The server posted the receipt online as was fired for doing so.

Why should I (or any custumer) trust a restaurant to keep my douchebag tendencies secret?

So far, Bell has only been bemoaning her own tainted reputation, so I'm really curious if her sermon about forgiveness makes any reference to the waitress she got fired, or is just a continuation of her pity party for herself.

This is stupid of this pastor trying to get fame with this because now people in restaurants know her face. Someone will spit in her food after seeing this, but that's probably happened already considering her attitude.
