***UPDATE, November 26*** Serious doubt has been cast on the truthfulness of Dayna Morales’ account. See this new post.
Another day, another gay waiter getting cheated out of a tip by prayerful Christians. Former Marine Dayna Morales waits tables in a New Jersey restaurant. The other day, a customer scrawled this note on the credit card receipt:
I’m sorry I cannot tip because I do not agree with your lifestyle and the way you live your life.
Morales posted a photo of the receipt on Facebook with the following message:
NEVER in a million years did I think this would happen. Not only was it a family with two kids, but as I introduce myself and tell them my name is Dayna — the mom proceeds to look at me and say “oh I thought you were gonna say your name is Dan. You sure surprised us!”
I am THOROUGHLY offended mad pissed off and hurt that THIS is what her kids will grow up learning and that I served in the Marines to keep ignorant people like them free. Sorry lady but I don’t agree with YOUR lifestyle and the way you’re raising your kids but you didn’t see me throwing that in your face and giving you shitty service. Keep your damn mouth shut and pray we never cross paths again.
Just last month, a diner in Kansas left the following tirade in lieu of a tip:
Thank you for your service, it was excellent. That being said, we cannot in good conscience tip you, for your homosexual lifestyle is an affront to GOD. Queers do not share in the wealth of GOD, and you will not share in ours. We hope you will see the tip your fag choices made you lose out on, and plan accordingly. It is never too late for GOD’S love, but none shall be spared for fags. May GOD have mercy on you.
And who could
forgive forget St. Louis pastor Alois Bell, who, back in January, stiffed a waitress with this admonition:
I give God 10 percent why do you get 18?
Can you feel the Jesusy love, people?
