    Default Pastor stiffs a waitress...uses God as an excuse

    Applebee’s fires waitress who posted receipt from pastor complaining about auto-tip










    (Reddit via Consumerist)
    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.)
    Welch, who snapped a photo of the bill from a fellow server and uploaded to Reddit, defended her right to post the receipt. "I thought the note was insulting, but also comical," she told Consumerist.com. "And I thought other users would find it entertaining.”

    Bell, a pastor at Truth in the World Deliverance Ministries Church, was not amused, and she called Welch's manager to complain.
    “[It was] a lapse in my character and judgment,” Bell told the Smoking Gun, adding she did not expect her easily recognizable signature would be, as her friend informed her, “all over Yahoo. You went viral!”
    [Related: Pastor leaves waiter note on receipt: ‘I give God 10%. Why do you get 18?’]
    “My heart is really broken,” Bell added. “I’ve brought embarrassment to my church and ministry.”
    A spokesman for Applebee’s said it apologized to Bell for violating her "right to privacy" and confirmed that Welch “is no longer employed by the franchise."
    Welch was surprised that Applebee's fired her, "especially because there was nothing specific in the employee handbook admonishing this behavior."
    "I had no intention of starting a witch hunt or hurting anyone. I just wanted to share a picture I found interesting," she said. “I come home exhausted, sore, burnt, dirty and blistered on a good day. And after all that, I can be fired for ‘embarrassing’ someone who directly insults their server on religious grounds.”
    Welch also isn't buying Bell's embarrassment. “If this person wrote the note, obviously they wanted it seen by someone," she said. “I’ve been stiffed on tips before, but this is the first time I’ve seen the Big Man used as reasoning."

    That fat piece of shit first of all insults the poor waitress by leaving that note and then she has the nerve to complain and get the poor girl fired. And she calls herself a pastor? Just fucking disgusting.

    Why didn't the pastor just 'forgive' the waitress like they do when priests molest kids?

    I spent most of my college days working in a restaurant so I will just throw this out there.....Its a pretty well known thing in the restaurant business that African Americans tip poorly. No racist.

    Why doesn't Applebees simply pay their employees more and pass the cost on in higher prices ?

    Why does the government even allow them to only be paid $2.13 an hour ? I don't need them to bring me my meal and tbh would rather not have them handling my food. I can get up and get my order from a counter at the grill and am capable of refilling my drink better than any server.

    Final note, who the hell would eat at Applebees...place is god awful.

    Its how its done throughout Europe...at least Western Europe

    Employees do not depend on tips and therefore you are not hurried to order and you don't feel inadequate if you just want to grab a coffee and a snack. Their restaurant system is far superior to ours

    accurate or not, that's actually kinda defines racism, there.

    I despise those automatic tip calculations. I figure when they do that that they don't actually want the 20% tip I would have otherwise calculated.

    question for the forum:

    When I calculate my 20%, do I need to calculate including the 10% or whatever tax is tacked on or not?

    Like, my bill is $35, the tax is $5. So do I calculate my 20% off of 35 or 40 $?

    Off the $35, no reason the server should get tipped for the tax.

    i do 20% of the final number, including tax and alcohol, even when the waiter sucks.

    That's not racism. It's a stereotype. Fyi. Blacks are also referred to as "Canadians"

    I was very upset in Russia a couple summers ago and we were leaving a couple bucks for 60 dollar meals.

    Didn't the Pastor also say that she left the waitress a cash tip? Like anyone believes that you insult the waitress with a note, but you somehow felt obligated to leave her a cash tip of $6.29.

    Also, pretty sure the tip was taken out anyway, the Pastor crossing out the amount and putting 0 did nothing to change that. So if she really did leave a cash tip, then she tipped the waitress twice, which is perfect.

    Is it Applebee's standard to grat parties of 6 or whatever the 18%? I skimmed the article sorry....

    So the dude was forced to give 18% anyway and then bitched

    18% is prob the best tip the bitch got all night

    The moral of the story is do not eat at Applebees. If you are gonna subject yourself to gastronomical injustices fucking go to Hooters and see some titties for fucks sake

    The Pastor is a woman. Think Precious, with a fucking attitude and a mean mug.

    Or, that chick throwing tables and catching chairs in the other thread.
