It wasn't the waitress's information on the receipt, it was the party's receipt. Your receipt at a restaurant is private, that's why they sit the bill face down or in one of those folding things for bills.

No, that's a courtesy. They could legally say, "HI JOHN, YOUR BILL IS $50, COME PAY AT THE FRONT DESK" over the loudspeaker. You just wouldn't eat there anymore because it's rude.

You can always blame someone else for your problems but almost every time some of the blame is on yourself. Maybe the girl wouldn't have gotten fired if the pastor didn't call, it's not the phone call that got her fired. Sharing the contents of the receipt got her fired. Sharing the contents of the receipt also caused that phone call.

Good point. Lets go farther. I'd say also the creator of reddit is to blame. So is the manager for firing her. Lets not forget the guy who started Applebees. Also her mother and father. I'm sorry, but we're not arguing the philosophical implications of blame here. Your point is that the girl deserved it. Fine. Yeehaw. So did the "pastor" (who's church is actually just 15 people that meet up on Sunday to chat) who removed the tip value and decided she was holier than thou.

So no, I'm glad the pastor got put on blast. What a flaming piece of trash to treat the server that way. Then to call and demand that the ENTIRE STAFF be fired? How entitled must you be? I'll lay 5 bucks on the fact that the girl gets a new job within a week.

Don't treat your server like trash. Being a Christian doesn't entitle you to be a complete ass.
