Couple Accused of Refusing to Tip Gay Waitress Offer Proof She’s Lying (VIDEO)

OMG 98

Let this be a lesson to us all who quickly jump on the bandwagon of vilifying people who supposedly left horrible remarks on restaurant receipts and refused to tip servers for various reasons. Remember the gay waitress who went public with a receipt that said, "I’m sorry but I cannot tip because I don’t agree with your lifestyle & how you live your life," and she didn't get tipped? Well, the couple who left the receipt are coming forward to say the bigoted receipt note is totally bogus. And they have the proof.

The couple, who do not wish to be named, said that when they saw the story of the waitress on TV, they recognized the restaurant, the server, and the receipt as their own. There was just one problem. Not only did they never write that nasty note -- they left a tip of $18 on a bill of $93.55. The wife says when she saw Dayna Morales, a former Marine and waitress Gallop Asian Bistro in New Jersey, going public with her tale of bigotry, they thought to themselves, "I said, 'oh my god,' she’s doctored up our check."

The couple have stepped forward with a copy of their own receipt -- which doesn't have the note and has the total as $111.55. Of course, the couple would have only written the note on the server's copy and could have totaled it differently on their copy. Many people only fill out the restaurant copy.

What makes their story believable, however, is their credit card statement, which shows the total of $111.55 billed from Gallop Asian Bistro. So if the restaurant total was $93.55 and they were charged $111.55, then they obviously left a tip.

The waitress and the couple must be talking about the same bill, since the date and time are exactly the same.

When asked about the discrepancy, Morales told the press:

I don’t know, all I know is what I've been saying.

Hmm, kind of a mystery, eh? Whoever is right here, I think the point is to be a bit wary of stuff you see and read online. Anyone can upload anything at any time and say whatever they want to. This couple is lucky that they didn't get the death threats that happened to a Tennessee man who was accused of writing the "N" word on a receipt. He says he didn't and is suing Red Lobster.

Makes you want to hold on to all of your receipts from restaurants!

Who do you believe?

I love that this is coming out. I hope the server is shamed for this stupid stunt.

That is a weird situation.  I guess we would need to see the original receipt to see if the Server used white out.

Sure hope she actually donates the money she received to charity, rather then pocketing it.  I wonder if people who gave her money because of her story could sue?

I hope the whole truth comes out about this

If their credit card statement shows they were charged that much, there's really no denying that they left it. Because if they didn't leave it, then it means that the server entered it anyway, which is stealing! And you can reprint credit card receipts, so it would be very easy to reprint a slip and write in whatever you wanted. That is why I never take these things seriously for the most part. It's so easy to do! Shame on her for doing this, she has been receiving money from all over for this and used her former time with the military to solicit even more emotion from well-meaning people.

What is up with all these people lying about stuff like this?  I believe the couple since they have evidence and that her response is weird, "all I know is what I've been saying."  The sad part is there is enough hate going around our country without people manufacturing it.

I kind of had a feeling it was all a lie.

The server could have printed two copies of the receipt in the first place, given one set to her marks, then wrote the note on the second one during her break.

I believe the couple. I read a couple articles with more details from them and they seem very believeable. Since people keep posting rude reciepts, etc online - people hop on that gravy train. The waitress was in the military, if she lied, shame on her. And shame on the company who would actually be able to verify how much they ran the couples' credit card for. She better donate 100% of the funds she recieved from strangers who felt empathy for her. This is also why I don't donate to things like this. Even if the rude comment and no tip was true, I'm not sure why the public needs to send her money for it.

The server doesn't need whiteout. You can print more then one copy.

The sad part if she did print more than one is that she had plenty of time to think about what she was doing and that it is wrong.  It would be awful if they really wrote it but its awful that she would put that prejudice on someone else.
