Pastor refuses to tip "I give GOD 10% why do you get 18%"

Unhappy with having to pay a restaurant's auto-gratuity of 18% for parties of eight or more, a pissed-off pastor used his receipt to express his indignation.

"I give God 10% — why do you get 18?," the man wrote above the autograt line before crossing out the pre-printed tip and signing the receipt "pastor."

The St. Louis-area server who posted a pic of the receipt on Reddit said the pastor was dining with a party of 20, and asked to have the $200+ bill broken up into smaller increments in a failed attempt to avoid paying the 18% tip.

"They had no problem with my service, and told me I was great," the server said. "They just didn't want to pay when the time came."

Redditors have been trying to track down the less-than-charitable Christian, but have so far been unable to identify the culprit.

At least one pastor was forced to issue a response denying responsibility, and the server herself has asked fellow Redditors to stop posting personal information of random people "who don't deserve a Reddit mob banging down their Internet door."

UPDATE

Edit: Pastor has now apologized -- waitress fired.

18% is getting off light. If you can't afford to tip 20% then you can't afford to dine out.

Also, who cares?

A tip isn't mandatory - it's a tip. If you want 10% or however much, add it to the bill.

A party of 20?? Yes, you can expect the restaurant to add gratuity.. Doesn't matter what cult you belong to.

OK I admit i didn't read the OP, I just glanced at the title and the picture.

Yeah, if it's in the bill, pay it dammit. Religion has nothing to do with it.

Two things we know:

This pastor is a ****head.

This waiter is going to get fired.

Tips are excuse for Restaurants to underpay their help and add hidden cost to customers.

Many restaurants define it as mandatory with a large group (and rightfully so). This guy is likely stealing.

When faced with a watier wanting a tip, I simply write this link down where the tip portion is:

I only tip 20% if the service is top-notch. 15% is my usual.

KCUnited 01-30-2013 09:55 AM

An unmolested dinner for a party of 20 deserves a tip.

Mother****erJones 01-30-2013 09:56 AM

**** church and pastors. Theyre all BS. This pisses me off. Cheap ass pastor cant give any kind of tip. Here's a tip for the pastor GFY

King_Chief_Fan 01-30-2013 09:56 AM

much to do about nothing.

a % of bill never made sense to me.
An expensive restarurant would create more tip for the server than the one working at IHOP.
Other than carrying a more expensive plate of food what does the high priced server do that the lower priced server doesn't?
So those of you who are in the food service business, please help me out.
I would rather tip on effort vs. the price of the meal.

Why should a restaurant be allowed to make you pay a tip? I tip pretty generously if my server is good but I don't like the "you have to tip this amount". That usually means, my drink stays unfilled and they don't give you near as much service as the guy next door who they have to suck up to so they get a tip.
