NJ Ex-Marine Waitress Get's Stiff'd on Tip By Customer

Because of Lifestyle

Morales said that on Wednesday, she served the customer her entire meal without incident, but when Morales picked up the bill, she saw the tip amount space crossed out and the words "I'm sorry but I cannot tip because I do not agree with your lifestyle and how you live your life"

Bunch of cowards. If the family was offended by her they should have moved or asked for a different server as soon as they determined that the food server offended them. You don't accept services and then bail when the check (tip in this case) is due. Bunch of sanctimonious religious freaks. If you don't like someone then put up or shut up. Don't skate out on a tip.

Technically, tipping is voluntary, so they didn't have to tip someone they didn't like. However, it still doesn't make it any less of a dirtbag move.

Sometimes the density of humans is astounding.

And then, sometimes people of tremendous character and integrity respond to that density quietly, wonderfully, and with true class.

Good to be reminded that there are good people out there.

Whoever wrote that story is way off the mark ... there is no such thing as an Ex-Marine ! Just former Marines.

I saw that one. Curious that they didn't request another server so as to avoid getting cooties.

Any former marine I have ever met I would welcome as my server. However, I think I would rather serve them.... They have already done their part for me.

I understand that it is voluntary how ever usually you don't tip because the service sucked and then you complain to the manager (I did that once). This decision not to tip was based on something completely unrelated to the the service.

I'm curious. How do you know a person is "openly gay"? I mean, what is it I have to do to let you know I am openly gay? Do I say "Hi. I'm John and I'll be your server tonight. BTW, I am gay so if any of you handsome men are looking for a date, leave me your card."?

I have eaten at many restaurants but I never know the orientation of the server.

So is sexual orientation a part of the diner-waitress conversation? This is like me being at work and someone announce "I am straight, bisexual, gay, transgender, etc, etc". It isn't a conversation that is relevant in the workplace. The more I think about it, the more I wonder if the waitress had shoved her sexuality into the customer's face. If so, how do you fit this in? "A lot of lesbians, myself for one, do like the Chicken Alfredo. I suggest you try it and maybe some hot lesbian sex as a dessert."?
