I think most of these tip stories are fake.

Seems legit.

Reminds me of when I worked as a waiter back when I was younger. Instead of a tip, one day one of the waitresses got one of those stupid things that looked like a folded up $100 bill, but in reality was a note that said something to the effect of "Disappointed? You won't be if you accept Jesus into your life". That led to one of the most impressive strings of profanity I've ever heard. Not tipping is kind of a dick move anyway, but that's taking it to a whole new level.

a receipt for $34.93 with an automatic gratuity of 18%

fark that noise.

What? They're raping waiters and servers now?

Dear Pastor,
Why didn't your god tell you that me and two busboys jerked it into your boulebais?

You will receive total consciousness. which is nice
 
2013-01-30 06:37:30 AM
Some of those religious types are the most tight-fisted assholes you'd ever "care" to meet - so yeah, I can see something like this happening. All kinds of people seem to think it's okay to pull bullshiat on waitstaff.

If this pastor has a name and a church address, I'll happily send him a few religious tips of my own.

Having a receipt that suggests 18% on a $35 bill is sort of ridiculous. Fix your computer.

The more conservative the church, the less likely they tip. That's always been the rule in the South.

It was a table of 20 people. I do not think I have ever seen a place that does NOT enforce automatic gratuity for a party that size.

That is one thing I hate about child molesters. They are such bad tippers.

Someone needs to make the FSM version of this and use it for when they go to weddings and the collection plate goes around.
 
2013-01-30 06:44:32 AM
Thanks pastor but a wallet-full of jesus ain't gonna pay the bills. That's about as effective as praying for ... well, anything.

It was an auto-gratuity: The pastard was eating with a party of 20 and the picture appears to be his portion of that larger bill. If he had a problem with the tip, he should have spoken with the manager instead of stiffing the guy making $5/h. What a farking douchebag.
 
2013-01-30 06:48:00 AM
The whole custom of tipping aside...

Just have God bring the "Pastor" his food next time.

That's a good idea. That's the sort of thing I would do to fill downtime back when I still worked at Kinkos. I guess I still could, I just lack the printing capabilities.

Double Minutes when you call Jesus? Is that a new Tracfone option?
 
2013-01-30 06:50:10 AM
Not going to defend this guy but he did tip 18% which is more than some farkers routinely tip... Also someone tell this dumbass putting Pastor on the receipt doesn't make a bit of difference

Zaelath: Ok.. why? Is 5 tables of 4 less work?

Oh and "learn to type".


Yes. Coordinating and serving simultaneous meals, drinks and the fact that the turnover of that one table is going to be tied to how long that one table decides to be there (rather than the five tables eating at different paces and turning over quicker), which is usually a lot longer, all takes more work and means less revenue overall and completely ties up the server's time until they are done.

I wanna say most of these tip stories are fake, but mah granmomma done said, people are shiate. After much thought and reflection, I eventually agreed.

AnubisMan: Not going to defend this guy but he did tip 18% which is more than some farkers routinely tip... Also someone tell this dumbass putting Pastor on the receipt doesn't make a bit of difference


No he didn't. He put the total above the tip, not the 'total amount + tip'. I know some receipts total it for you, but as this system allows for the addition of a higher tip, they don't pretotal it for you.
 
2013-01-30 06:53:02 AM
One thing that wasn't in that post nor seems to have been questioned yet is the quality of service. I know 20 people is a lot and it can be tough on waiters, but that isn't an excuse for bad service. If this guy got good service, he isn't really in a position to feel too indignant, but if he was treated like crap, why should he have to give a tip? Without more details, I think this is just a bunch of people wanting to find a reason to whine about Christians by looking at one example that we still know very few little about.

Check the pic. He didn't tip 18%. He didn't tip at all. He drew in a big fat zero and argued that since God only required 10%, there's no reason why a waiter serving a party of 20 should get an extra $6 and change from the "good" pastor.

The article says the server was told he did a great job and that there were no complaints about the service.
 
2013-01-30 06:56:14 AM
There is no excuse for being a cheap bastard. Hiding behind being a Pastor is as legitimate as saying i'm a pro ball player or a factory worker - it's all bullshiat. If you're trying to pull the "I'm a humble man of god without much cash in my pocket" then you shouldn't be dining out, dooshbag. I hate cheap people. Cheap clergy people, doubly so.

and who the fark thought that fake money would open someones heart to their god? WTF is wrong with people. some days i want to see it all burn, right to the ground.

The article did mention quality of service. Granted, the waiter's version of events might have been a bit self-serving, but then again the biatch-pastor made it clear he objected not to the service but to the tip. Cheap asshole could have pryed $6 out of his wallet or eaten at home.

/ What is with some farkers and not reading the main article?

This doesn't seem all that bad. I always leave 20% for the servers who work their ass off and get 2.50 an hour to do something I'm clearly too tired/lazy/hungry to do for myself. And you kind of sign up for that shiat when it lists it on the menu and you decide to stay anyways.

When I was a waitress, minimum wage was somewhere around $5.25 and I made $2.15 an hour. My paycheck was a joke.

I don't recall the proper name for this scam, but yeah: Some places can get around minimum wage rules by counting tips - whether those tips every appear or not - as part of the employee's income. Frankly, I think that farkery should be illegal.

My dad is a christian - informs everything he does. I have seen him leave tracts and things like that for a waiter but always in addition to a tip, because he knows that Jesus is great but people need money now.

That's why my spouse and I have Jilario (or whatever his name is) come and do our meals. He shows up prepared, cooks, and we pay him $20/person/meal. He cleans up and leaves. Everybody is happy.

Screw that ankle-biting bullshiat from you trogs.
 
2013-01-30 07:07:30 AM
Most stories from the Consumerist are nothing but bullshiat, but extremely religious types do tend to be some of the worst tippers on the planet (See: That utterly retarded "Here's a tip - oh no, wait, it's just more unwanted proselytising, because adding insult to injury is just hi-larious" false bill), so at least this one has some basis in reality. Hell, it might even be true.

Plus, a lot of times, the servers have to share with the host and busboy. I've met hostesses who make literally 2.05 an hour. They pay more GETTING to work than what they get paid actually working!

Bah, had some douche do that to me when i was a bartender... was a sunday afternoon, they came in, dressed in their sunday best, sat at the high top, ordered what amounted to be a typical sunday after church meal plus drinks. Since it was a sunday we didn't have a regular server for the bar area, so we always took care of them ourselves. They ran up a pretty good bill with drinks... don't remember exactly how much, that was like 10 or 12 years ago. When they went to cash out, he picked up the tab for the whole group. Then made a point to tell me "i'd normally tip ya, but we gave our money to god today"... had a hard time biting my tongue that day... will never forget that guy...

I live in Canada, so our minimum wage rules are a bit stricter. Not strict enough, mind you, but stricter. There is an absolute bottom to what an establishment can pay its employees. Minimum wage in this province is $8.90, but one can still find waiters making bottom end wages through a loophole that counts their tips as income.

The fact US/State laws still allow what amounts to slave labor, in service to business' interests, is shameful enough. For a supposed religious man to do it...well, that's beyond the pale. I actually do hope his name hits the net.
