    I'm a big tipper. I don't like it being mandatory. Sometimes they don't deserve it. It's not my obligation to insure ANYONE makes a decent living, that's up to them. At a low end restaurant I will usually throw in a couple extra bucks. At a high end restaurant, even though the service is almost always exceptional, I wonder why the server got $25-30 while the server at the Coco's last week who worked just as hard got 5.

If she had just not tipped and left some mean comment on the receipt unrelated to her faith, I'd probably agree with you more, but, to me, it's worse because she's supposed to exemplify the love and generosity of Christ, and not only to those who are in her congregation.

    I don't think the Pastor's a bad person. I don't know her. She did say in the article she was embarrassed. It looks to me like she's getting a much deserved and needed lesson in humility. I hope she takes it to heart and learns from this.

    I don't disagree in principle with either of you, and you both manage to discuss it rationally and coolly. Again, note where I mocked what she said about giving "God" 10%.

    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.

    I agree, Tuck. It's the apparent hypocrisy that makes the story.

    Do you think the pastor was a jerk? YEP absolutely
    Do you think the waitress should have been fired. Tough call, depends on the employee handbook, i wouldnt have fired her but at the same time not sure i can point to anything saying she shouldnt have been fired.

    I would have suspended her and thats it.

    I don't think she did anything wrong. What she does in her personal life has nothing to do with her job.

    I wonder how long she's been doing it.

    If the service was bad, real bad, like cold food, a long wait, mixed up orders, not checking for refills, slapping the bill down before asking about dessert (to turn the table), I could see not leaving a tip at all. I think I've done that once in my life. But to use God as your justification is just plain creepy.

    I cant go there with you 100%

    i personally dont think she did anything wrong but what she did clearly involves her work.I personally would NEVER fire her unless i was forced but I cant say what she did was her own personal business either.

    Actually this illustrates your assumption that this server didn't do a superb job at serving this pastor and just got stiffed. We don't know about her service to make an assumption that she just felt "entitled".

    What we do know is the Pastor acting like an asshole and the server responded in an assholish way.
