A waiter in Kansas is another victim of cruel Christians leaving hard working servers fake tips in the form of religious tracts disguised as money.
Tech Insider reports on one recent incident:
17-year-old Garret Wayman, who works as a waiter at a restaurant in a suburb of Wichita, Kansas, said he was excited on Tuesday to see a $20 bill tucked under a ketchup bottle as a tip.
But on closer inspection, his excitement turned to irritation after he said he realized the tip was a fake.
A customer had really left Wayman a religious pamphlet disguised to look like money that recommends he seek “faith thru Jesus Christ” and start reading the bible.
I’m 17-years-old, $7,000 in debt because I had to buy myself a car, juggling full-time school, and working seven days a week.
He said when he first spotted the fake tip tucked under a ketchup bottle he was very excited:
Getting a $20 tip at the restaurant I work at is very, very rare.
Obviously Wayman was disappointed to see that the $20 tip was actually fake. Adding insult to injury, the young waiter notes the customer didn’t even leave a real tip to accompany the proselytising pamphlet:
He just left that. I wanted to tell him that I only make $3 an hour and bust my ass at my job to make way less than I deserve, but he was gone by the time I had the chance to.
An understandably frustrated Wayman lamented:
To get my hopes up like that … is just flat out mean.
Wayman shared pictures of the fake tip on Twitter, where they have been retweeted over 5,000 times.

The fake money is actually a bible pamphlet recommending that the reader seek “faith thru Jesus Christ” and contains an eight-paragraph argument for why one should buy a Bible and become a Christian. The intro to the tract reads:
Don’t be fooled! There is something you can have more valuable than money.
While there may be somethings more valuable than money, religious superstition is definitely not one of them.
Tech Insider reports tales of servers receiving fake money are nothing new. Previously, a waiter posted a picture of a tip he said he received to Reddit that turned out to be fake $10 with similar religious messages on the back. Another waitress also posted a picture of the same fake money on Reddit.
Bottom line: If you are a Christian, try not to be a dick, and never leave religious tracts disguised as money for a tip.
