Remember that pastor, Alois Bell, who refused to tip her waitress and then got her fired for posting the note she left on her bill on Reddit? "I give God 10 percent. Why do you get 18 percent?" So not cool. Even Jesus wept. (I have it on good authority.) The Internet must respond!
And it did -- beautifully. A spoof on the infamous Applebee's pastor receipt has surfaced. It reads: "I give God 0 percent. So you get 28 percent." Well played, "Tom Joad" of Facebook (if that was yours), well played. I don't know if this is real or just photoshopped, but I love it.
I especially like that you could read it two different ways. Maybe the poster doesn't believe in God. You can be generous and compassionate even if you're an atheist! Or maybe the poster does believe in God, but believes our mission is to be generous with each other because God does not need money -- and because the poster believes that's a better example of following Christ's example.
Either way, I think the spoof tipper's point is this. However you feel about tipping, you really should leave God out of it. God is great and all that, but He's totally irrelevant to how much you leave your server. Stand on your own two feet and take full responsibility for the tip you do or do not leave.
Okay, I just have to point out one more thing: 28 percent. Nice tip! Seriously hope this receipt is for real.
What do you think of this spoof receipt?
