ugh, you actually subscribe to r/atheism on Reddit? That is a cesspool of some of the worst human beings on the Internet.

That being said, as vile of a human being as this pastor is, the waitress should have exercised better judgment, since waiters/waitresses have been fired for posting stuff like this before. I don't really have a problem with her getting fired...news flash: servers get stiffed all the time. I got stiffed semi-frequently when I waited tables, I didn't throw a fit and post it on the Internet.

does this pastor understand the difference between giving 10% of your income to the church versus 18% of a bill from applebees? theres a slight difference

Well, the fact that the Pastor felt the need use his faith to justify stiffing her is the point.

I am not denying that this pastor is a colossal D-bag. And he should be exposed as a selfish fraud to his church. However, I still find no fault in her getting fired. You simply can't post customer receipts with their names/signatures on the Internet.

the person that uploaded the picture wasnt even the girl that waited on the party.

According to The Consumerist, the receipt was not uploaded to Reddit by the Applebee’s worker who waited on Bell’s party. Instead, the server showed it to waitress Chelsea Welch, who photographed the receipt and later shared it online. Welch told The Consumerist she was fired yesterday. In a statement, Applebee’s spokesperson Dan Smith reported that, “Our franchisee has apologized to the Guest” for violating the patron’s “right to privacy.” The individual responsible for the leak “is no longer employed by the franchise,” Smith added.

I do not subscribe to any reddit.. I just read the front page - but I heard about this on the X this morning and didn't realize she posted the picture on reddit.

Did you look at the picture? her name is not even on it - she didnt respond to any requests to confirm or deny her identity - and its a cash receipt. How many of them are thrown away daily.
Edit: I think it was known the pastor was a woman. I didn't research it though.

r/atheism is a big reason why I keep my beliefs to myself. They are jerks (mildly putting it) that make the rest of us that aren't look utterly terrible.

It is a credit card receipt and her name is on it.

It is not a cash receipt, it is signed. She also tipped in cash apparently, but was still charged the 18% to her card. Her comment is terrible, but you can't post things with people's signatures on them on the internet.

Bottom line, you shouldn't use the internet to complain about your job unless truly 100% anonymous. Applebees isn't wrong, this is a lesson learned by the waitress, but honestly, this publicity she's getting is probably more valuable than a waitressing gig at applebees....i mean she just lost her job at one of the corniest gigs you can have.

I don't know how to follow a reddit thread, and clicking on that link certainly justified myself never using that site, but i'd like to take a bat to this pastor's knees.

Not the reason why but it is a reason I am a glad I do not refer to myself as an Atheist anymore.

When I call myself a Pantheist most people don't even know what I'm talking about :lol:

I don't divulge information like that. Or I say I'm not sure since I'm an agnostic atheist.
