I feel badly, and really on her behalf an apology is issued.....
: get ready for a long rant..
: 1)I dont believe she shouldve been fired,
: and if she was going to post that she
: shouldve concealed the signiature and any
: info about the restaraunt.
: 2) Not once did she say anything about the
: party's race or religion, and the fact they
: tried to cheat the system. That is what she
: was upset about.
: 3)NewOver, you know I heart you, and you are
: entitled to your opinion, but by mentioning
: "black church groups are the
: worst" is offensive.
: I waitressed for many years.. and Im sorry
: but stereotyping like that makes me sick..
: i only turned down a Table once in my
: waitressing career, and it was because
: something they were wearing set off my
: allergies and I couldnt breathe.
: When from the beginning you think youre not
: going to get a good tip your attitude and
: service changes and the guest senses that. I
: have a story about that..
: I was working at Chili's and the hostess
: comes to me stressed out "Stephanie
: will you please take this birthday party? No
: one else will take it" my response (
: without even seeing the party) "Yea Ill
: take it, why wont they take it? How many
: people?" she replies " 10, they
: say the party wont tip" ( they were
: African american) and I told her " Ill
: take it, and mention this to the
: manager" It was a surprise for the
: birthday girl who arrived later.. I went all
: out for this party, i felt horrible that
: they had to wait because people were
: ignorant. i bought her a drink, and a
: dessert and got everyone to sing Happy
: birthday. At the end, her mother hugged me
: and thanked me for making her daughter's
: birthday so special, that she was a breast
: cancer survivor and wasnt expected to live
: to see her 25th birthday, so celebrating her
: 30th was a big deal..
: At that point I didnt care if they stiffed
: me. That was enough. while walking out,
: several people slipped folded bills into my
: apron, with the tip and the extras, I walked
: away with nearly $200, and a new group of
: Every server that turned down the party was
: written up, and a new rule was put into
: effect that turning down a table for any
: reason would result in immediate
: termination. And thats how it should be.
: Racism, discrimination of any kind should be
: a Zero Tolerance thing. Its un called for,
: and I agree with Darnell. If I feel like im
: being judged from the minute I walk through
: the door, because Im overweight, or I have
: my kid, or my anxiety/ocd issues, Im not
: going to tip as much. The hug and thank you
: from her mom meant more to me than the
: money. It made me ashamed that some of these
: other servers were my friends.
: The guest was in the wrong for not tipping
: if the service was good, and the server was
: in the wrong for posting it up..
: Those are my thoughts
: --Previous Message--
: Maybe it's not a racial issue, but
: let me ask, if people discriminated against
: YOU for your orientation, how would that
: feel? I tip, but that kind of remark makes
: it harder to want to. It makes me wonder if
: I'm being judged every time I happen to
: leave a penny less than what a white
: person(assuming you are) thinks I should.

: To any and all servers....not trying to be
: ugly, but black church groups were the
: worst tippers in the damn world.I'm not
: hateful to people, and always gave good
: service- would run my a** of for anybody who
: sat down.... am I lying about the lack of
: tipping? Somebody back me up....no flames,
: just sayin'....
