    Did you see the receipt, Digs? She (the Pastor) made a big point of making the tip $0. What was the purpose of saying she gives 10% to God? Was she trying to impress the waitress? You and I both know you're not supposed to give with the intention of drawing attention and kudos for it. In fact, nobody should even know you're doing it. If the Pastor wanted to come off like an arrogant tightwad, I'd prefer she not do so in the name of God
    I agree that they should not do so in the name of God or compare tipping to tithing, but I don't think complaining about the charge makes the person a jerk. It's hard to understand the context from what little is written on the receipt. It could be that the pastor doesn't want any tip charge put on the bill so that they can choose the amount to tip. I'm not saying the charge is unjust, but I am saying that if someone thinks it is that they shouldn't be branded as a jerk simply for thinking that 18% may be too much or if anything should be charged at all.

    The only personal info was the name and that's not exactly private. If the Pastor was embarrassed by what she wrote, she shouldn't have written it.
    It could be due to my background and the fact that I've been indoctrinated by my school to protect the privacy of others (medical info and all that), but I think comments that were meant to be in private should remain private. This person may be a local public figure, but that doesn't mean that things they say privately should be made public against their consent. It's one thing if someone overhears a private convo or saw them write the note, it's another thing for an angry waitress to go out of their way and share this with everyone.

    the best part of this which makes the pastor even more stupid besides bringing up God, is why complain too and stiff the waitress. It has nothing to do with her UNTIL she stiffed her.

    the waitress doesn't make the rules.

    Not to mention that 10% of the pastor's annual income is a great deal more than 18% of a $35 check. If God only got 18% of $35, God'd probably think she was an ignorant ****, too.

    Who all here think tipping has gotten out of hand? I just came back from Japan where tipping is considered an insult yet I received service that would put many establishments here to shame.

    How about business pay their people what is commensurate with the job, figure it into the price and if I get bad service I can complain.

    in the restaurant service or any field where they dont make minimum wage im fine with tipping, if its "expected" anywhere else then you might come up short.

    but then again i think its bull to have a loop hole to not pay minimum wage

    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.
    NOne of this would have happened had the 'pastor' not instigated it all with her insulting and demeaning comments. It's too bad the waitress has to pay the price.

    Nonsense. No employee is under any obligation to tolerate rude and boorish behavior by customers, and frankly any employer that expects their employees to be punching bags for the public probably isn't worth working for in the first place. Contrary to popular belief, the customer isn't always right.
