Doctors and lawyers actually have laws protecting their clients' privacy, but restaurants are fair game, depending on the individual restaurant.

The pastor was out of line for writing something like that, not a very good witness for the Lord. And the girl was out of line too for blowing it up for the world to see.

I'm sure it's a continuation of the pity party. If it wasn't, she'd have asked Applebee's to give the waitress her job back.

I'm glad this pastor got exposed. I have no sympathy for someone like that.

I was very involved in the church, for a LONG time, and got out of it pretty much for this reason. I was tired of pastors acting one way in front of the church body, and another behind a closed office door. I pisses me off to see "pastors" like this treating others like crap.

The Waitress deserves what she got the original picture clearly shows the signature's name, if she really wanted to make a point she could have just kept the "pastor" part and deleted the rest.

Ummmmmm you most certainly do not HAVE to leave a tip. It's an extra. PLUS in this circumstance they had already taken 18% (aka a TAX) from out of the bill. And that's retarded. Tipping is an extra TIP that that person making min-wage. If you do a good job you will be tipped whatever that person thinks is necessary. If you don't get tipped, don't act like you are entitled to get one, because you aren't.

You don't technically have to, but unless your service was abysmal, I think you have to kind of lack a sense of shame to walk out without leaving anything.

Exactly. I mean yeah technically you can do whatever you want but you should go in with the expectation of dropping down an extra 15% more or less with your meal. Also, not coming up with every excuse possible not to tip. "Only 5 refills of my drink?! NO TIP!" Is ******** I've seen way too much in my life.

No, I agree. I tip. EVERY TIME. Almost no matter what. I was just saying. you don't HAVE to. but your a d**k if you don't. I have worked in the restaurant business and I know what it feels like to have some dude not tip you, even when you know you did a good job. It sucks...

It actually makes more of a statement to leave something really small than to leave nothing at all, if the service was truly atrocious. Then you know the customer didn't just forget.

Also yes, unfortunately, the salary of the waitstaff takes tips into account, even if tips aren't required. They'd be working for under minimum wage otherwise. That's just how it works in the US.

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!
I'm a pastor's son so I've been around church people all my life. I can tell you for sure that the ones who REALLY are christians, are definitely good tippers. But i'm in the south and i'm in an assembly of God church. No idea how the catholics are at tipping. I can still remember my grandpa leaving a twenty dollar tip on multiple occasions. I would always think " i wanna tip like that one day" But for now i just leave regular tips. lol

I always tip, though I don't really go percentage wise or whatever (I'm sure it's at least 15%). But clearly if I had a party of 8 then I would expect an 18% tip because that's probably going to be at least two wait staff serving you who I assume split said tip.

When are people going to learn there are consequences to your actions. You can't just take a customer's signature and post it on the internet. The pastor was a ***** that is for sure, but this waitress should have known better.

In most states minimum wage for waiters/waitresses is $2.13 an hour. Employeers are not required to pay tipped employees anymore than that amount.

Here is the minimum wage for all states that shows the wage of tipped employees.

http://www.dol.gov/whd/state/tipped.htm#NorthCarolina

Everyone just think about this next time when you are deciding whether to leave a tip or not. These workers only make $17.04 in an 8 hour shift without tips.
