Nobody wins here. I would've fired the waitress too and the customer needs to stop calling herself a preacher in public.

If the service was good and there was a large party she should have paid. Many times the required tip for large parties actually costs waitresses money because if the service is really good I tip 25%. But if the service sux which is the case many times I leave the minimum. That's why its called a gratuity.

The Pastor should maybe consult her bible.

Proverbs 19:17
2 Corinthians 9:7

Default Re: Waitress fired after posting pastor's no tip receipt online

FYI, for those saying "wait staff only gets $3 per hour and that is gone from taxes" please know that is only in certain states, like South Carolina. South Carolina is one of the worst as they don't give enough damn to make their own state laws and use the Federal minimum of $2.13/hr. In Florida, wait staff make about $5 per hour plus tips...other states as much or more. I'd say if you work an hour and wait on 3 couples who eat for $40 and tip you 20% at $8 per table...you just made $27 that hour in South Carolina...which is more than enough (and deserved) for their skill. That is just crazy.

I do also want to note that their checks are "all tax" because otherwise the government wouldn't get anything out of them- do you think they all keep track of the cash they get tipped?

Last but not least, while I am an above average tipper...I do think tipping has got out of control and needs a reform in this country. PERCENTAGE should be thrown out the window. Why should a waitress make more for me ordering a more expensive meal while doing the same amount of work? Why should the waitress who works at Outback make more than the waitress who busts her ass at Lizard's Thicket or Applebees?

I hope that pastor's congregation sees how she acted. Using God as an excuse to not give a tip? Wtf?!? That is one of the more pathetic things I've ever seen.

The pastor is only embarrassed because she got caught.
The pastor DID NOT not give a tip...she was forced to give an $18 % tip (due to a certain number of customers in her party / at her table - which is another "discussion" entirely) and did not want to give an ADDITIONAL tip...I'll just say, regarding the "mandatory gratuity" a lot of restaurants now apply, I think that is a crock...back to this incident, though - the pastor did not get CAUGHT doing anything...I do agree it was in poor taste to leave the "rude" comment, though, and I do think she should blame herself as well as the waitress for being "embarassed"...RMO III

I agree 100%...I think a lot of people are blaming the pastor mostly for this...the waitress is as much, if not more, to blame...the pastor already was obligated to give an 18% gratuity due to the number of people in her party - a "rule" a lot of restaurants have in place today...could the pator have handled this better, say by letting the waitress know verbally in private why she was not getting an ADDITONAL tip?...certainly...but, absolutely no excuse in what the waitress did...that was the epitome of spite...again, the pastor COULD have handled it better, too...I guess this experience will be a life lesson for her, just as it is for the waitress who was fired - and rightfully so...RMO III

So if the service is bad, you leave a tip?

My wife says that I tip excessively. But I realize most these people are just like us trying to support a family. That being said, I sometimes even question myself... Why should I tip for bad service

Default Re: Waitress fired after posting pastor's no tip receipt online

o.k....I have to further comment...I quickly scanned thru this thread...I had heard about this "story" y-day at work...after reading the article and assuming what is in there is accurate, I truly believe the pastor was "commenting" re: the 18 % mandatory charge, which obviously is in practice in a lot of restaurants...in my opinion, she had no ill-will towards her server or dining experience and I believe a lot of people are turning this into a "cheapskate didn't leave a tip" tale......I believe most have missed the boat here, esp. in regards to the pastor's actions...the pastor left an additional $6 cash FOR HER SERVER...the server's co-worker is the one who put the receipt online...ABSOLUTELY she should have been fired for that...as I mentioned earlier, that is the definition of spite...of course the pastor could have avoided all of this by not commenting on her receipt w/ an admittedly rude comment...RMO III

I tip 20% and accordingly to their performance. I have no problem showing them what kind of job they did. Good or bad

pretty good summation, though I'm not so sure the pastor meant the "story" she caused...and surely the co-worker who actually posted the receipt did not intend it to go so far as to get herself fired...both sides learn a lesson...RMO III

A lot of people are saying the 18% was added in already. I do not think that is the case, as if it was there would be a subtotal underneath the tip adding that total to the $34.93. I believe the 18% was put there to let the customer know what 18% would be on that check, as many restaurants now do. I'm pretty sure this joke of a pastor did not pay a single cent over the original bill.

I thought the same thing but I think the total that was above it already had it totalled in be cause where she had the 0 was for the additional tip.

I always tip 20% or a little more of the total bill. But I'll drop it to 10% if the service is bad. I never tip below that.

What's funny is most everyone tips on the total bill...when we really should tip on the amount less the tax.

I've gotta ask...have you ever worked in the service industry?

Also, you cannot take your one hour example and extrapolate based on that. For every one hour that you make 27 an hour, there are many more where you make 5 an hour.

Very good point. People also don't take into account what is going on behind the scenes by servers to make your experience enjoyable. It isn't as simple as putting a food order in and bringing it out to the table. Many times they are washing dishes, making salads, stocking plates and lifting buckets of ice, that silverware you get in the neat little roll don't roll themselves, (yeah not exactly hard but very time consuming and that 30 seconds you waited to get your tea filled that is what they were doing.) Don't forget about the couple of hours that are spent setting up in the morning and the hour or so after you are not taking tables that you are cleaning the store all for $2.13hr. If you have never worked in the service industry, you shouldn't discount what they do because you don't really know what they do.
