Default Gay Waitress Not Tipped By Family

http://gma.yahoo.com/blogs/abc-blogs...ries.html?vp=1

I'm not OK with this. There are just some places that you need to keep your mouth shut. If she gave me good service I wouldn't hesitate to tip. I would never be so rude as to write something like that on a receipt. These people got more balls than me.

so her being gay didn't offend them enough to not let her serve their food , but it bothered them enough that they couldn't tip her ?

If she wants to be butch that is her right.

If these people don't want to tip her because they don't like her appearance and want to let her know why that is their right as well.

I really don't see what the big deal is. It's a free country...or at least it is supposed to be.

Yes, it is a free country. But that doesn't protect people from blowback if they act like an asshole.

some people are just cheap bastards who feel they shouldn't have to pay taxes or tip anybody and will use any excuse not to do so. They think that is their "right".

They consider it "handouts" and reminisce how in the good old days slaves did that shit for free and it was the private enter prizes responsibility to medicate and educate those slaves if they chose to do so.

Tips are part of the wait staffs much below minimum wage salary and taxed.

with that being said it seems there is a new receipt making it into the "news" every week. pretty soon it will be impossible to tell if any of them are fabricated.

Not sure why there is a butt in your statement.

I simply stated it is a free country.

If people want to waste their bandwidth on this type of petty stuff (one way or another) that's fine with me.

Yep - someone is free to be a jackass and other people are free to criticize someone for being a jackass

These members of the family values crowd might want to consider whether being rude is a Christian act - would you pull this kind of shit?

Morales said when she introduced herself to the family at the table the woman responded, "Oh, I thought you were gonna say your name is Dan. You surprised us!" ...

A couple dining with their two middle-school-age children Wednesday made their judgment of Dayna Morales, a Marine veteran, simply by looking at her. They let her know what they thought with a scribbled message on their $93.55 check.

"I'm sorry but I cannot tip because I do not agree with your lifestyle and how you live your life," the note reads.


http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/n...o-tip/3597401/

Hopefully the children of these parents will learn because of this blowback that bigotry is not acceptable to everyone before they screw up by parroting the "values" their Mom is teaching them to someone who is considering them for a job

No, I wouldn't have. I feel what they did was completely classless.

Still, they probably don't feel clit bumping is a family value and they had every right to make that clear just as you and I have the right to whine, complain and judge too.

Doesn't make it right, but it is a right.

If it's a question of values, they could have made that clear before she served them. Not tipping makes them cheap, not principled. If they didn't want to "support" her and her lifestyle, they should have eaten elsewhere. They're free to do that in this country.
