    A huge number of retail customers are very difficult to deal with these days, accepting that fact is a responsibility of anyone who deals with the public.

    The waitress hurt business by embarrassing a customer and possibly exposing the business to legal liability. Those in the congregation that like their pastor will not longer go to that restaurant. No business can long afford to employ someone like her. Businesses need people that will advance the interests of the business.

    Unless the tip is specifically stated will be added, it can not. We do sometimes go to Applebee's and there is NOT an automatic 18% tip nor is this stated on the menu.

    So this was just a trick add-on, for people who (like us) do not audit restaurant checks - meaning off course then a double tip - the secret one just added on AND what is left at the table. Anothers words for that is "fraud and theft."

    What we do know is the Pastor acting like an asshole and the server responded in an assholish way.
    It did nothing of the sort. Anyway, the Pastor said they added the 18% on to the credit card anyway. So the server got her 18% she was hysterical that a patron would have the gall to question her 18%.

    Entitlement mentality.

    I've done that before, with a large group and one picking up the check you don't always notice it. I discovered it when I got back home and checked it.

    Oh ya, the server nor restaurant deducted the double tip knowing it was an error, they just assumed we wanted to tip 36% on a large bill.

    It's true, you haven't excused the actions of the pastor.

    But in truth, if the only thing I knew I about Gardener was his behavior in THIS thread (especially his hissyfit about me giving her a "pass" because she's a Christian pastor and in my "eyes" that means she can do no wrong), I would take my business to one of his competitors.
    Gardener's just always had a passionate belief that people should live up to what they claim they believe. (So there's no misunderstanding, I'm referring to the pastor's failure to do so here, not you).

    I would and if that waitress still worked there, I'd apologize to her for my Pastor's behavior and give her the tip myself.

    Which he completely failed to do himself, vis-a-vis, me. If the same standard were to be applied to him as is apparently being applied to the pastor . . .

    Would you feel the same if she wrote insulting things about her employer on a website?

    Entitlement mentality means wanting 18% for doing nothing. What is your evidence that the waitress didn't do her job satisfactory to an 18% expectance?
