Pastor refuses to tip "I give GOD 10% why do you get 18%"

http://gawker.com/5980177/pastor-ref...r-tip-than-god


Quote:
Unhappy with having to pay a restaurant's auto-gratuity of 18% for parties of eight or more, a pissed-off pastor used his receipt to express his indignation.

"I give God 10% — why do you get 18?," the man wrote above the autograt line before crossing out the pre-printed tip and signing the receipt "pastor."

The St. Louis-area server who posted a pic of the receipt on Reddit said the pastor was dining with a party of 20, and asked to have the $200+ bill broken up into smaller increments in a failed attempt to avoid paying the 18% tip.

"They had no problem with my service, and told me I was great," the server said. "They just didn't want to pay when the time came."

Redditors have been trying to track down the less-than-charitable Christian, but have so far been unable to identify the culprit.

At least one pastor was forced to issue a response denying responsibility, and the server herself has asked fellow Redditors to stop posting personal information of random people "who don't deserve a Reddit mob banging down their Internet door."

UPDATE

Edit: Pastor has now apologized -- waitress fired.

This isn't about making sure they make minimum wage.

This is about incenting behavior.

I work in sales and get paid on commission. The conditions under which I get paid reinforce the work my company wants me to do.

Good tipping encourages better service.

Bad tipping is why they never come back to your table and refill your drinks.

however, what DOES drive me insane is when the waitress/waiter takes our order; someone ELSE brings it out; and we don't see the waiter/waitress until we're nearly finished.

that drives me nuts.

Well retail stores don't allow ppl for the most part to tip, and make it if you accept a tip you are fired. This is one thing I think is BS.

When I'm elected president, this is the first thing that I'm changing. Bring them up to a livable wage and stop this whole tipping insanity.

And it would also mean more tax money for my administration since I bet that servers never report their full tips.

I tip good and even with bad service I don't tip bad, especially if I have reason to believe something may not be the server's fault. The lowest I will usually go is near 10%.
I went below 10% once and it was because we had god awful service and most of the time I saw our waitress sitting at a table with her friends during the meal instead of doing her job. That was a pretty extreme circumstance. Usually I am at a bare minimum 15%, usually over 20%.

Simple solution.

Don't leave a tip.

You should try eating at other places aside from Denny's.

I take a lot of pride in being a good tipper. People take notice and will go the extra mile for you afterwards.

Not true. Places like Pei Wei etc are awesome to me. I wish fancy restaurants worked that way. I don't give two shits if there is someone there to suck up to me. I like places where I order, I sit down, and they clean up my table when I'm done. No tips, and still a pleasant experience. Waiters and waitresses is really a pointless occupation IMO. I'm sure many think it's cool to have a waiter, but I do not care either way.
