    http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/sideshow/pastor-tip-receipt-155914258.html

     

    rec

     

    A man claiming to be a pastor apparently tried to stiff a waiter on a tip, explaining that his work for God absolved him of having to leave one.

    A photo of the receipt, posted to Reddit.com, shows a bill for $34.93 with an automatic 18 percent gratuity (or $6.29) added above a blank space for an additional tip.

    "I give God 10\%," the diner wrote on the receipt, scratching out the automatic tip. "Why do you get 18?" He then wrote "Pastor" above his signature, and an emphatic "0" where the additional tip would be. (The automatic gratuity, however, had already been added to the total.)

    The Reddit user who submitted the image explained in the comments section that the receipt was part of a total bill for a party of 20, which is why the gratuity was automatically added.

        In Mossy's case I would assume the Jewish, Muslim, and atheist male prostitutes are glad to hear that.

        I never did understand how being "cheap" got such a bad reputation. Hell, I am proud to be cheap. I ride economy class because I am cheap. I don't buy name brand clothes because I am cheap. I buy stuff that is on sale because I am cheap. I try to bargain prices down when possible because I am cheap.

        But I am supposed to be extravagant with my money when I go to a restaurant?

        Why?

      IF this guy is a pastor, then the 10% he gives (assuming it's at his own church), goes right back into his own pocket.

        but then ten percent of that goes back into the plate.

      Quite an audacious excuse for being a prick.

      FWIW, if you earnestly believe that you "give money to God", please PM me and I'll send you his new Paypal account.

            What kind of ironic about this is that the pastor runs her own church, so she tithes 10% to herself, which is all tax free.......

            hmm.

          I waited tables for YEARS.  2 of the worst tipping demographics were Clergy and African Americans.

           

          This customer was both.

           

          I'm glad the pastor is mortified, she should be.

            Maybe someone should explain the elementary understanding of The Bible to this "Pastor".

            This "Pastor" does not "give" 10%  to God. All the Pastor does is "return 10% of what God has given to her", which in reality, is a paltry sum.. That's basic knowledge & understanding  that this "Pastor" seems to not understand.

            Maybe the waitress or one of the congregation where this "Pastor" ministers, remind her of that or maybe they could point her to 1Timothy 5:18 (along with other passages),. where it basically says a laborer is worthy of their wages,

            A big part of a wait staff wages are made through tips, since the great governing lawmakers have seen fit to transfer the responsibilty of a sufficient/suitable wage from the emploer/restaurant owner, to the customer.

            The person, in this circumstance, is a poor example for Christians & Christian ethics/morality. As the Bible states, she should now be brought to accountability by fellow members of her Church.

            She should make a public apology to this waitress & to her Church for what can only be seen as a reproach brought on by her ignorance  or misunderstanding & misuse of the Gospel. She should also seek to use every available avenue to restore this waitress to her jobs, which she lost, due to her inconsiderate & ungodly actions.

              Black people are known to be bad tippers.

              Well I figure it's a little presumptuous to infer love.
