Pretty much. The pastor might be a jerk for doing that but that's where it should end. They don't deserve to lose their job over it or have it start wrecking their life.
On the other side, don't want to rely on big tips? Get a job other than being a waiter/waitress. When you count on the generosity of strangers you have to accept that some people are jerks and they're going to stiff you. You don't have any right to start harassing them over it.
I guess I don't GAF what you tip. If you tip shitty don't become a regular, because servers talk. If it makes you better being a cheapskate that's fine too. The people who have problems with tipping are the ones who want 15 free refills during their meal and are pissed off when they only get 7 and that the server isn't at their beck and call the instant they need them. If a server does what is expected of them they should get 20%. Running a server all over the place and ordering things that aren't on the menu and then taking it out on teh server is looking for excuses to lower your bill by not tipping because you didn't have enough $$ to go out in the first place.
If it is clearly stated on the menu or elsewhere that the gratuity is added for large parties, then they should call the cops on the "pastor" for not paying her bill. Let's see her survive on the $3/hr or whatever base salary the server gets. I hope that waitress has job offers flying in from other restaurants.
The waitress deserves to lose her job because when it was posted online it violated the privacy of a paying customer. You can't do that to your customers, even if they are jerks.
Do you know how many people either give a horrible tip or no tip at all in a day in the US? I'm guessing it is in the thousands. This isn't news.
Haha thanks, but my post was not in response to autotips. It was in response to Intensity proclaiming that bad tippers get bad service, but in reality service should reflect tip.
For the record, I don't think I've ever tipped less than 18%. However, I've definitely tipped more than that for good service.
I have a very good friend who waits in a restaurant, and I know how little she makes. Keep in mind that food charges aren't just paying the servers--they're also paying the people who prepare the food, the managers, the seaters(?--whatever the people who seat you are called, I should know this), the bussers, and all the other costs of running a business. Despite that, I still don't understand why servers are paid so little, but that's why tips are so important. I always make sure I tip around 20% (I try to go more, especially if the service was good, but I do vary it on quality of service). I absolutely HATE it when my best friend digs out her phone to figure out exactly 18%--at that point, what difference does 2% make? You're just nickle-and-diming for the sake of being cheap.

Before you ask, yes, I am a girl.
Actually, she was probably charged the 18% anyways, you can't scratch that fucker out and think it means anything.
Wow, must be easy to live like that. Just have to walk up to a table and you have everyone all sized up and figured out. You're like an x-men.
The pastor wrote a book on fasting, did she? I could see that if it was written in the same way recovering alcoholics talk about booze.
Bang. When I first read "Applebees," I thought their punishment was being in that hell hole in the first place.
I don't get how any person can treat someone so shitty for no reason...and then on top of that she is a pastor, she is supposed to be a humble servant of god, not a narcissistic bitch.
Your average UofM fan and I have something in common, neither of us went to UofM. Though we do share One major difference, I got Accepted.
Anyone mentioned that this "pastor" first found god in 2007 when she was homeless and a drug addict?
When I was serving tables, which I haven't done in 6 or 7 years, I had about 1 minute to figure out how you were going to tip. I think all servers, whether consciously or subconsciously decide what tables are going to get good service. A lot has to do with how you look and what you are ordering.
That all being said, I was never stiffed, but working Sundays sucked, because when church people did come in a lot of them would only tip 10%.
Chicken and egg scenario there, do you give them bad service becuase you know they aren't going to tip more than 15%, although you do get that verbal tip, or do they tip bad because they get bad service? I never really cared and stopped working Sundays.
Thanks, Mr. Pink.
You know everything you spend money on subsidized the salaries, right.
Misread the title...thought it said, "Pastor sniffs waitress...". I could not wait to open the thread.
I was playing the video from the link, and my 2 year old wandered over and said "daddy, that lady is silly". Can't say I disagree.
I was a waiter for a short time at an Applebees. On the good weekends, I could pull $400-$500 in tips. A couple "types" of people almost always left shitty tips. The area I worked in had a very small population of "those types of people" and both types of "those types of people" enjoyed Cracker Barrel more than Applebees.

White trash were pretty bad, too. Fat, rude, stinky, and disgusting people.
How exactly does she give god 10%? Is it a payroll deduction? Mail him a check? Slips him some cash?
Does she mean it in a sense like "I'm giving 100% on this project boss"? If so, shouldn't a pastor be giving God 100% all of the time?
I see your point. I think some people will tip poorly regardless of service. However, my point would be that I doubt any server is that good at judging someone based off a few obscure observations. Also, the purpose of tipping was designed for rewarding someone for going above and beyond.
