You know how most churches have like...a whole lot of people, and they all come together and do things and stuff in a church and all that?

Well, in the second article Presto posted it says that they're a 15-member church that rents a commercial space. They aren't a huge church, it's not a giant congregation backed by a specific faith-group. It's just...them.

And I don't want to try and pass judgement on anyone's beliefs or anything of that sort, I just feel that when there are fewer checks and balances on you (ie: there's nobody around you to consult with on what is and isn't appropriate, someone outside of yourself to consult with on matters of faith and all that jazz) that there's something...kind of lacking.

This isn't a woman who has a congregation of a thousand, or a hundred, or even fifty people. She's got it seems like a dozen people that she preaches to. I know bible study groups that are bigger.

I went to a pub last night with the boys, sat for more than 3 hours.
Many, many pitchers. Talked about God, watched the game and prayed.

Not even a Sunday.





Problem?

Applebees is disgusting. Last meal I ate there, I shat out liquid oil and the same happened to my dining partner. The thought of walking into one makes me wanna puke.

Also, this church's name sounds like a cult that will off themselves one day.

It's applebees after all.

I'm sure the waitress would have no problem finding another gig.

After reading both sides of the story I gotta say, the manager kind of screw themselves over. Especially if the employee has no earlier records.. what happened to the 3 strike rule?

on a lighter note... one thing that did came to mind was

internet = srs business

Good luck finding a new job when you compromise a customer's privacy and show no remorse for it.

I bet she will find a new job no problem. The internet fame that she gained from this will make it easy for her to find a new job somewhere else. There's probably a restaurant manager redditor who will symphasize with her situation and hire her, if not only to try and spite those who think she should not get a job so quickly anywhere else.

If one of my employees publicly posted information about a customer(yes, signature counts) I would also fire them, that is completely unacceptable. Seems people are keen to jump on the pastor because it's easy to hate on religion, if it was just a typical non-religious person I doubt it would be getting this much attention.

For a dime-a-dozen chain store where most people don't care about their jobs, sure I can see that happen. But if I was said store's owner and found out that my manager hired her for spite. I'd tell them both to pack their bags.

I don't think it's such that were jumping on the pastor because it's easy to hate on religion.. It's deny-ability.

This arrogant cunt decided she wanted to be a cheap smartass and write down "I give God 10%, why should I give you 18%"

If that comment wasn't written down, then nobody would care that a pastor didn't tip for her meal. It was the arrogant smartass fucking comment that got her up shit creek, and to me she deserves every piece of hatred coming to her.

Both people did something wrong. (The comment, and the girl posting it on Reddit) Yet I hate on the pastor more just for her retarded arrogance and then being caught and bitching & moaning is just downright pathetic.

You wrote it down, don't complain you did something retarded to yourself when other people bring it to everyone's attention.

Posting a customer's signature online is a fired-on-the-spot offence pretty much anywhere.

^Agreed. The server wants to be in management one day, yet can't realize that you shouldn't post a customers receipt online as that is grounds for dismissal.

I wonder how many people bombing their FB page claiming not to eat at ApplePie's ever again will forget about the incident and eventually go back.

I don't see anything wrong with the comment on the bill to be honest..people are sick of being gouged at restaurants by this tipping culture we have here. I think it's twisted that many people tip purely because they don't want to be embarrassed to face the server with no tip. I tip if the food or service is excellent, but have no problem giving nothing extra if my dining experience is only mediocre.

I think the pastors comment was funny, cudos to her for standing up to this ridiculous tradition we have of paying people extra money to do their jobs properly. Calling the restaurant demanding everyone be fired was not a great move, but I'd be pissed too if someone posted my info publicly and there was an army of strangers trying to track me down on the Internet..

Servers, especially in the states, need that gratuity. I think the article stated that the waitress makes $3.50/hr base. Cue Reservoir Dogs:
