Remember the story about the waitress in New Jersey? To refresh your memory, this woman claimed to receive no tip from some customers. She only discovered this when she went to pick up their signed credit card receipt and found that instead of a gratuity, they had included a note saying they could not support her "lifestyle."
People everywhere were outraged. A person's sexual preference can't be determined by short hair (like the waitress had), and even if it could be, there is no excuse for homophobic treatment of your waitress. A waiter is a waiter! Her story quickly spread and soon everyone was angry over the way this veteran had been treated.
Now there's been a disturbing and disheartening twist. It seems this waitress, Dayna Morales, has a history of making up elaborate stories -- and this tale of cruel customers might be one of them! For one thing, Morales, who received countless donations after being disgraced by these supposed customers, never passed that money on to the Wounded Warriors fund as she claimed she would.
That could be explained away as a simple misunderstanding ... until the customers accused of wronging Morales finally spoke up. They brought forward their credit card statement to prove that they left Morales an average sized tip for her services. I bet they didn't intend to be repaid with this sort of mistreatment.
It isn't the first lie she's told. Even Morales' service record is shady. She claims to have served overseas, but records indicate that she was never on active duty. It seems like she could be a chronic liar, only now she's drawn more attention to herself than she ever has before. This sort of scandal could have a real impact not just on her, but on the restaurant where she works, which has already come under fire a couple of times during this scandal.
Do you think Morales should be arrested for fraud?
