    So you think that getting harrassed on twitter or facebook is ok from information that can only be obtained by an employee?

    Sorry, but I have a big problem with that one there.

I dont think the customer was insulted at all.

    Now again that just my opinion and you have yours but im pointing out the assumptions, guesses and opinions ONLY you are stating bolded above.

    So you've allowed your employees to bad mouth your business and your customers?

    weird i didnt say that at all LOL

    what i did say though is in THIS specific case in another post i would never fire this girl unless under serious legal advice to do so or if cooperate made me, and of course if she factually violated a written policy i would punish her as the policy says.

    In this case i see no bad mouthing of the customer or the bushiness.

    what i said is i dont think the customer was insulted at all, meaning by apple bees or the waitress

    what people choose to do on facebook and twitter i could care less about especially to an adult

    SO in this specific case i have no problem with it if it was my business but you are free to disagree

    Thanks, T. (and X).

    My view is that everything works both ways. If you want people to respect you, then it is up to you to respect them, and this respect has nothing to do with the way you view their station in life. Stiffing a waitress is bad enough unless this waitress was rude and indifferent. Writing a snide note on the check makes the act an "in your face" sort of statement. Getting the girl fired adds insult to injury. When public figures (and this pastor IS a public figure) indulge in such boorish behavior, they almost always do so because they view themselves in one place and the person they are crapping on another. Otherwise, they simply wouldn't indulge in this behavior.

    When companies fail to back up their employess and expect them to be the butt of other people's sense of entitlement, they become part of this process. In this case, the waitress was deemed expendable because that is part of the corporate culture. Far too many companies expect loyalty, but they do not give any. I don't go for that, myself, since I figure loyalty in one direction deserves loyalty in another. I tend to be a very loyal person, so at the risk of being called more names by others in this thread, I will say that if I were running a business and this sort of thing happened, I would not fire the person who had been wronged, but explain to the woman who left the snarky note why I value the employee and want them to earn a decent living by working for me -- the sort of decent living denied her when people with an excess of attitude and shortage of class stiff her.

    I base my behavior on what I consider right and wrong rather than what I consider expedient, and so my reaction would have to do with my gut feeling instead of some calculation on how it might affect my business.

    In the case of the Pharisee in question, the waitress only posted the receipt and did not take direct aim at her in any way that was threatening, harassing or malicious. As such, any heat the Pharisee received was from others for her boorish behavior rather than from the waitress directly.
    I agree. The reason this 'pastor' was harassed is entirely because of her own insulting actions. Next time, don't be a smartass on your damned receipt and you won't have this problem. The waitress just decided to share your boorish and obnoxious behavior with the public. She shouldn't be fired for that.

    The employee didn't make anything up. She just shared her customer's boorishness with the rest of the world. Treat people decently and with respect and you don't have this problem.

    It is my fervent hope that the fact that this waitress was fired causes even more grief for this bitch.

    What people don't seem to understand is that this is a public figure. What if that public figure were a local news commentator or politician? What if they were of a diametrically opposed political philosophy?

    Somehow, I imagine that if most on the left heard about something like this happening to Rush Limbaugh or those on the right heard about it happening to Michael Moore, they wouldn't be so persnikkety about having the snarky note posted online.

    This is just demonstratively false. If that was the case, the pastor would've been harassed even if the waitress had not posted the picture. There's no evidence that such harassment occured prior to that point, nor that it would have. The pastor was harassed due to a combination of actions on the part of herself, the waitress, and those doing the harassment.

    I don't have any sympthoy for the pastor for the harassment and it's a strange karmatic type of thing....but the waitress did have a hand in it.

    I can appreciate the desire to protect and back their employee that some want, and I'd probably be that way as well in terms of any public issue of it...but at the same time, I'd definitely be taking some actions privately to let her know that it's one thing to be upset at a douchebag customer, it's another thing to take something that is business related with customer info and post it for the world to see.
