Applebee's Waitress Fired

Earlier in the week an Applebee’s employee was fired after posting a guest’s meal receipt on Reddit. The guest was a local pastor who decided that he doesn’t care about the livelihood of the people that he is supposedly shepherding.

Instead of leaving an 18% tip that is customary — a tip that the waitress, like all other waitresses, depend on — the pastor wrote down “I give God 10%, why should you get 18.”

“I thought the note was insulting, but it was also comical,” said Chelsea, the waitress that the pastor stiffed. “I posted it to Reddit because I thought other users would find it entertaining.”

Apparently the pastor got hint of the receipt going viral and being as embarrassed as he should have been, he decided that instead of apologizing, the best route to go would be to get not only the waitress, but the entire management at Applebee’s fired.

Thankfully he didn’t get his wish, but the innocent waitress still got sacked. This is an email from Applebee’s spokesman Dan Smith:

“Our Guests’ personal information – including their meal check – is private, and neither Applebee’s nor its franchisees have a right to share this information publicly. We value our Guests’ trust above all else. Our franchise has apologized to the Guest and has taken disciplinary action with the Team Member for violating their Guest’s right to privacy. This individual is no longer employed by the franchise.”
