    Applebee’s fires waitress who posted receipt from pastor complaining about[W: 55]

    Applebee

    An Applebee's waitress who posted a receipt with a note from a pastor complaining about the automatic gratuity added to the bill on the Internet was fired on Wednesday after the pastor complained to her manager.
    Chelsea Welch, the waitress, wrote in an email to Yahoo News that the pastor (who has since been identified as Alois Bell) told Welch's manager at the St. Louis-area Applebee's that the ensuing firestorm had "ruined" her reputation.
    "I give God 10%," Bell wrote on the receipt, scratching out the automatic tip and scribbling in an emphatic "0" where the additional tip would be. "Why do you get 18?" (There were more than eight people in Bell's party, triggering the auto-tip.)

    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.

    Auto tip policy kicks in when party is above 8 people. On a bill of 34 bucks, what did they eat? One beer a piece?

    Yes, she should have been fired as she posted personal information about a customer (the customer's name) that was only obtained by being at work.

    There are similar privacy policies with companies about posting personal information about customers.

    I would have fired her. She's an idiot. Her judgment can't be trusted. She published information and an image online that strictly belongs to her employer. Oh, the so-called pastor's an idiot, too.

    I'm torn....posting someone's information online isn't cool...but the pastor was a corncob.

    I sort of agree, thats why i said i cant argue against the firing but in reality what personal info did she post?
    if it was only the pic(not sure if thats all it was), thats not to personal

    The picture had his signature and he has since been harrassed on facebook and twitter if I remember correctly.

    I agree he is an asshole, but so is the waitress for posting the personal information. Had she just posted that some rude customer had said this about the tip, I doubt she would have been fired.

    Well, I don't eat at Applebees, but I will redouble my efforts by way of avoiding the place.

    I own my own business and that business deals with the public, but when that public acts like a complete jerk, I DON'T leave my employees hanging out to dry. I back them up, instead.

    Have I mentioned that I have had the same employees for the last 7 years?
