Waitress Says Customer Denied Her A Tip Because She Disagreed With Her Lifestyle

We don’t like how it’s apparently becoming a trend for customers to choose to not only stiff their servers on tips, but to then explain that it’s because of how they “live their lifestyle” which translates to, “because you’re gay and I disagree with that, you don’t get a tip.” A waitress in New Jersey says that’s what just happened to her on a $93.55 bill.

She sent a photo of the receipt in question to Have A Gay Day on Facebook, which then posted it on its page. The receipt shows no tip and then a scrawled note saying: “sorry I cannot tip because I do not agree with your lifestyle & the way you live your life”.



The waitress says she never thought in a million years that this would happen, writing, “Not only was it a family with two kids, but as I introduce myself and tell them my name is Dayna – the mom proceeds to look at me and say ‘Oh I thought you were gonna say your name is Dan. You sure surprised us!’ ”

She goes on to write that she’s offended, pissed off and hurt that the woman’s kids will grow up witnessing this behavior.

“I served in the Marines to keep ignorant people like them free,” she adds. “Sorry lady but I don’t agree with YOUR lifestyle and the way you’re raising your kids but you didn’t see me throwing that in your face and giving you shitty service. Keep your damn mouth shut and pray we never cross paths again.”

If all is at it appears to be, we’re upset that there are people out there who choose to treat others like this. Have some common decency, people. Yeesh.
