Chelsea says that the customer told her manager that their reputation had been ruined by having the receipt posted on Reddit.

His reputation was ruined by something he did that he thought was right?

I don't get it.

Shouldn't he be happy this received national attention?

If you write something on a receipt and then sign it, where is the expectation of privacy?

Especially when it's an ideological statement to a stranger in a public place.

Agreed.  When restaurants first started to do mandatory auto-tips on large groups, I could understand people being caught unaware and being peeved.  But it has become common practice for some time here in the States.  If such a policy exists, it generally is listed on the menu, especially for chains like Applebees.  If you don't like it, leave.

The guy could have made a generic note of protest about the auto-tip.  Instead he had to be a douche and bring religion into it.  The fact that he wanted half of the restaurant to be fired because his shiat was called out by the world just goes to show what a petty and nasty little excuse of a human this pastor is.  I hope his identity is made public so he can be mocked relentlessly.

Having said that, the waitress was in the wrong for not blurring out the signature on the receipt.  Reprimand, sure.  Fireable offense, no.  As for identity thieves getting the signature, chances are that the pastor's signature is already online in some public records database.  The deed to my house is online with a crapload of identifiable info, including signature.

WTF does this Jew know about certifying men of cloth? Kick him out, make him a heretic, 39 lashes in the public square, refuse to give him communion, he's gotta wear a red A around his neck, a day in the stocks, shove a living snake up his ass, make him fight the lions, lock him in a rectory and force him to listen to Andy Gibb's Shadow Dancing for eons and eons, publicly shame him (religiously - "he does not represent Christ's teachings or message"), make him get an abortion - whatever it is they do to pastors to remove them from the position.

Do that.

He wants the right to be abusive in private, where no one may intervene on behalf of the victim of his abuse.

If Applebees had any kind of backbone or moral compass, they could have taken this one to the bank and responded publicly with something similar, stating they won't be a party to it by teaching people that speaking out against an abuser is wrong.  Instead, they did what too many people do: conflict-avoidance by enabling abusers and asking - nay, demanding - victims accept their abuse in the interest of the greater community's peace of mind.

Depends on the denomination.  It would appear from The Smoking Gun article her "church" has a congregation of 15 and services are held in a rented out store front.  I'm betting this particular denomination consists of the pastor and her flock and that's it. I bet she's charging those 15 congregants a tithe for the privilege, too.

Heh. I have a bit of a rage-reserve for when religious leaders act like total farksticks. Probably comes from knowing far too many - both good and bad - and the bad ones always seem to be more bad than the good ones are good.

Also, when a core part of religion is "set a good example for others", failing to do that in such an astounding way seems to me to be the #1 Thing Not to Do. If anything, fellow believers should be clamoring for a better leader far louder than jackasses with Fark accounts.

That was your first mistake.

the image contained the customer's full signature. Chelsea says she didn't think to edit that out because she had assumed the name was illegible.

That was your second.

Or any industry really. Just about the entire retail sector including restaurants loses millions each year on the misguided notion that the customer is always right.

It's of no use to atheists, but even Jesus said that those who mistreat their fellow man are also mistreating  Him, and are waiting at the station for the subway to hell.

Look, the dude is a complete cheapskate and I hate people that can afford to eat out but not pay the salaries of the people that work in the restaurant, but anybody who has ever worked in a restaurant knows you get fired if you complain about tips to a customer.  The odds of her getting fired went up even higher once everybody found out about it.  That's the business.

It's one thing to not tip when the service was good.  It's wrong and you're a dick, but if you just don't tip at least you're only a dick.

However, you get upgraded to raging asshole if you don't tip despite good service AND leave a snotty note behind explaning why you're not tipping.

And a pastor should be more willing than the average person to "forgive" or "turn the other cheek" and be an example to others.  Selfishness is hypocritical.

Or to publicly out you.

Granted, I don't think the server's firing was surprising, and I can't really blame the management too much.  However, I still don't think it was morally wrong in any way to post the pic of the receipt.  Public shaming is a powerful tool.

Well, it's less that than other potential sensitive information on the receipt that can be used for nefarious deeds.  The pastor was out of line for being a raging coont, but the server shouldn't have released a pic of the offending receipt.  There are even laws that govern that kind of thing, and I'm sure the last thing Applebees wants is a visit from the feds.  Or, for that matter, a lawsuit.

Hell, even here at Fark.com, in the FArQ, it spells out that disseminating any identifying information about an individual can get you a time-out.  I'm sure the thinking is very similar.  In this case, some enterprising individuals were able to suss out who the customer was.
