Hey Christians! Don’t do this.

My father forwarded this to me.  It’s a rant from a waitress he knows that has been mirrored by my own experience working in restaurants.  If you’re a restaurant employee, you dread working Wednesday night and Sunday mornings, not only for the rush, but for how demanding and unsympathetic the people in those rushes tend to be.

“Parents let us babysit their children so they can come in and socialize and speak of those that DO work on the sabbath day. I have lost count of how many booklets, hats, bibles, and small trinkets I’ve received in place of tips. THANKS, asshole! A booklet can be ripped up and distributed for my children to eat! It can also be burned for heat!”

This is your reputation, and it’s not the product of a small minority.  Police your own and, if you’re one of the people who think leaving a tract disguised as a tip will make us consider Christianity rather than loathe Christians, stop.  Just stop.
