15 seconds in, and we're off to a great start. Adorning the bottom of "what they believe":

Good to know. Is it verified that she got her fired? Or just wrote a snippy note about a surprise tip (albeit a standard practice for big groups)?& the pastor in question received quite a bit of criticism from her flock, including a decrease in attendance. She also gave a pretty sincere apology (as opposed to the usual non-apology apology).
3) Wow. Another scathing detail?What they didn?t show is the money that I left and that we all left on the table,? said Bell. She says she left $6.29 on the table and her credit card was also charged the tip amount. Everyone else at the table also left tips in cash.
She deserved to be fired if it were her table, despite the justified anger. This takes it to a different level.As it turns out, the receipt was not posted by the waitress who served the minister`s table. It was placed on Reddit by user gateflan, by Chelsea Welch, another waitress at Applebee`s who saw the receipt and was angered.
?I took a picture of the note because I thought it was comically immature,? Welch said. ?I thought it was humorously silly, the fact that someone would not only refuse to tip, not only make themselves out to kind of be a jerk but also play the religion card as an excuse.?

Never leave a waitress scorned.
Beware of the dangers associated with having a common name in the Internet age.
Those two lessons were learned the hard way by all parties involved in 'tippergate,' the Seattle tipping scandal that sparked a social media-fueled manhunt, and an apology.
It all began Friday night when a male customer at the city's Bimbo's Cantina restaurant left waitress Victoria Liss no tip, just this insult directly below the tip line on his credit-card receipt:
"P.S. You could stand to loose (sic) a few pounds."
Angry and armed with the receipt as evidence, Liss began a virtual manhunt, posting a picture of the receipt, with the man?s name, Andrew Meyer, clearly visible, on her Facebook page.
With that, the search was underway for the man Liss called 'yuppie scum.' Comments poured in and soon the photo and Facebook page of one 'Andrew Meyer' were tracked down and posted and reposted through social media and on news sites.
Seattle area bars even posted photos of the man, like the 'Wanted' posters of old.
One small problem. The angry mob marshaled by Liss had nabbed their wrong Andrew Meyer.
