    It took me about 10 pages to realize this was from last year. wtf?

    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Every business gets bad customers. I've fired over 800 customers over the years. But I know better than to publicize information about them on the internet. The waitress was dead wrong and received the correct punishment. The company's reputation can be harmed by this sort of thing. The waitress should have put the the $5 or $6 behind her and smiled more sincerely at the next customer. That is her job.

    Though I agree she is eligible to be fired, given the totality of circumstances, there is no way I would have fired her. Rather, I would publically decline the pastor's business.

    You're giving her the benefit of the doubt when there is no doubt.

    Should a server be allowed to take a photo of a customer she thinks is wearing an ugly dress and post it on her Facebook? How about a "Look at this stupid hairdo!!! ROFLMAO!!" Perhaps snap a pic of a particularly obese person and comment on how many trips he made to the all-you-can-eat buffet? Respect privacy.

    The server who did this deserved to be fired. Life isn't fair. Sometimes the people we serve as waitstaff stiff us. We don't have the right to publicly humiliate them. She was wrong. She got what she deserved.

    Ok, I would probably uhmmm.... "ask her to resign" to maintain work place discipline and to prevent "ugly dress photos". She would, however, be eligible for re hire.

    Some people have a soft spot for animals, I have a special dislike of pastors and priests behaving badly as it impacts the public perception of Christianity. As a result, I have sympathy for the waitress.

    I agree with you, but does this respect for privacy (in public, they are still in public regardless) apply elsewhere? How about the "People of Walmart" site? The photos aren't taken by employees, they're taken by customers ostensibly with no company affiliation whatsoever, but do these people in the pictures deserve no less a courtesy of the same respect?
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    I'm not altogether sure it is actually legal to automatically add a tip to a bill. But so far, no one has tested it. The tip is a gratuity that is voluntary. IMO, there are legal problems with forcing a gratuity which, for other customers is entirely voluntary. I don't think it has made it into the courts and given the amounts likely will not, but if it ever did, I think the practice would be found to be illegal.
    Redneck, hillbilly, fundie, Bible thumper, cracker, split tails, geezer, loon, xenophobe, islamaphobe, and homophobe are not words of tolerance.

    One could argue if it wasn't posted on the menu. Most restaurants do, though. It's their terms of service. Nothing illegal about it.

    Big parties often stiff waitresses, many times quite by accident. It's good policy.

    This sums it up.
