    Family Disputes Gay Server's Story

    What do you believe.

    Family Disputes Gay Server's Story - Local News - New York, NY | NBC News

    "The husband and wife, who asked to remain anonymous, showed NBC 4 New York a receipt that appeared to be printed at the same minute, on the same date, for the same $93.55 total, except with an $18 tip.

    They also provided a document they said was a Visa bill, which appears to indicate their card was charged for the meal plus the tip, for a total of $111.55.

    The couple told NBC 4 New York that they believed their receipt was used for a hoax. The wife says she is left-handed and could not have made the slash in the tip line, which she said looks to be drawn from the right."

    Re: Family Disputes Gay Server's Story

    My curiosity is why did a patron have any idea about a server's sexuality in the first place. I mean I'm all for everyone loving who they want, but I don't want to have knowledge of my server's sexuality during my meal or really anytime unless/until we for some reason become friends. I might not tip someone who put their sexuality in my face in some way. I get this is about the idea that she wasn't stiffed the tip, but that's beside the point to me.

    It seems that the media was offered a story that they wanted to believe, and simply ran with it. The person offering up this tale of sexual orientation bias got free publicity generating outpourings of financial and emotional support so everybody, except the falsely accused, was a winner.

    I wasn't sure sure about the story in the first place but do think it's much easier to add a tip to a receipt after you leave than to take it away like it wasn't there but then so is the little note. I think they didn't tip and added it afterwards. They also didn't write anything and she wrote the note afterwards. Case dismissed!

    Edit: actually thinking more about it the server probably printed a second ticket and did all that because the totals were different. Duh - I need to drink more coffee.

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

    If proven true that the waitress faked the receipt, I can guarantee it won't go well for the waitress. I will say it isn't sounded to well for the waitress right now though if the couple served is providing rock solid evidence as News 4 has claimed.

    Like Summerwind, I doubted the woman's story because how does one know someone's sexual orientation unless the fact was revealed? At no time did the accused said she revealed that fact. I think the patron's story makes sense and is completely believable. I think this will blow up in the attention-whoring server's face.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    You assume that the "whoops" will get equal attention/reaction to the original story. I doubt that very much. Will the server be forced to return the sympathetic "contributions" received?

    The couple's credit card company's bill has the exact amount including the tip. If the couple didn't leave the tip they say they did, how did the credit card company get the exact amount correct that matches the couples copy?

    That was the proof for me.
