    Also, we do not know if this was the first infraction that the waitress did. She could have done other stuff and this just was the final straw, we don't know.

    the waitress did everything right
    EXCEPT post the scribbled, near illegible signature of snarky pastor on the net
    where the pastor was then identified and exposed - and properly embarrassed
    so, the employer had to fire the waitress
    and for that i will have to avoid applebees (thank goodness cracker barrel no longer discriminates against gays, because i hated being unable to eat there ... ignoring applebees will be easy by comparison)

    but this "Christian" who holds herself out to be a minister
    this pastor who insisted that the restaurant manager and the waitress be fired
    this pastor who wrote the snarky 10%/18% note intending it to be read
    and then became upset when her embarrassing words and actions reached an unexpectedly larger viewership
    she needs to take off her WWJD bracelet and go into hiding
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    again i never know what the first name is without the NEWS telling me and i disagree. im sticking to my guns on this one. But its just about what "I" would do, not what they did.

    I agree that could DEFINITELY be a factor but be clear im not saying they were "wrong" because i got nothing to really support that im just saying what i would have done if it was my decision.

    I'm not a pastor, just a Christian and I agree with you. I'm not even that critical of the waitress for posting the receipt. If it embarrassed the pastor then she shouldn't have written it. She should be embarrassed and, if she's not, I'm embarrassed for her.

    That's fine, if it's all internal. I'd agree with that.

    But what would you do if an employee started insulting customers publicly, using your company's name?

    the pastor was exposed as was her (lack of) character

    for me it would simply depend on the the reason for the shaming and what form it took.

    That hardly matters. If applebee's has no sort of policy where warning have to be given out they can fire people on the first straw.

    This just another thread where people don't support the rights of property owners and the right of association.

    Re: Applebee’s fires waitress who posted receipt from pastor complaining about auto-t

    I'm going to speak from my heart right now instead of my head.

    I loved every bit of exposing this hypocrite pastor. I loved it and hope that pastor was embarrassed as she deserves every bit of it.

    I think she should realize that Millions of people tipping 10% to the church (or God as they say) is a bit different than a waitress getting an 18% tip from $34 check. That waitress maybe gets what 1-2 big parties a week if that? Maybe that pastor ought to open up a Math book along with her Bible and learn a thing or two.


    Now that I said that....

    I understand why the company did what they had to do. I don't like it, but I do understand it.
    Libertarian and Atheist...wow I'm a hated man.
