I bet God is pissed the most since he only gets 10% and not 18%.
People be crazy.
unfortunately...fairytales don't have bills to pay....
Those comments are gold. It's like she likes having to buy three new tires on a regular basis.
And does she short God on weeks he doesn't deliver? Like only 8% for sh!tty service?
Wait wait wait, hold the press! Applebee's has just come out with a statement on their Facebook page. I'm guessing that they'll address the thousands (and thousands) of hateful comments calling for a boycott of their establishment, backpedal quickly and state that they've pushed the franchise to offer the server her job back?
Oh, this should calm everybody down......
Bwahahaha! Applebee's PR fail.
He gave God 10% Alter boys get the other 90.
always the shaft....
Semi more like.
I am reminded of this quote, just about every day now:
Dumb move on the part of applebee's. Had they been a small mom and pop restaurant they would be able to get a way with crap like this. But a national chain get's a huge blow back once facebook and the media catch wind of it. I've been to applebees twice I can remember, the food isn't bad but it's not special either. I will make it a point to avoid them in the future. So many better places to eat anyways.
Every franchise is independently owned, so the individual franchise was the one who fired her, not the corporate offiece... HOWEVER, this is pretty despicable that the home-office is standing by their franchise instead of the workers involved.
And so soon after the Obamacare debacle, too.
Joined war on FB...
Found it on https://www.facebook.com/BoycottApplebees
Yes it's true they are privately owned franchises, that have to follow corporate guidelines. The way their corporate offices handled it was pretty lackluster. Everyone know's it's the standard to tip 15% to 18% at restaurants even though sometimes servers don't deserve it.
The backstory was that it was a large group (20 people?), so the automatic 18% gratuity was tacked on. The group split the checks in an effort to avoid the automatic gratuity, which is why her meal was only $34.
Another strike against them is that you are actually "eating sh*t in the neighborhood". The cheap seafood at Applebees, Red Lobster, Outhouse, and other chains plus the cheap stuff at the supermarket is very nasty stuff:
I'm trying to think this through as an individual franchise owner might. It sucks hard to be penalized for the actions of some dipshlt in st louis, but how do you stand out? "We're totally cool with out wait staff making our customers known to be the douchebags they sometimes present themselves as"?
Not quite sure how I'd go about it.
I sent a request for donation back to some christian organization over Christmas with my message: "Prayer, it's BETTER than money!".
As I said on JBP's FB page, once again, I find myself in the awkward position of boycotting a place I don't eat at anyway.
I boycott them because the last time I ate there the steak tasted like a salt-lick. It had been years before, it's been years since. I think they literally just heat up the applebees products from the frozen food section of your local supermarket.
Way to turn the other check there Pastor Lardass.
"While we don't agree with our servers giving out the private information of our customers, sometimes people make poor decisions in the heat of the moment, especially when encountering a situation like this. Ultimately we want to foster dedicated, hard working employees and will be working with personnel involved to see how this can be avoided in the future."
If the automatic 18% gratuity is clearly noted on the menu the pastor shifts from a customer to thief. I don't see the problem - those are terms of services agreed when they dined at the facility. You can't skip taxes or items charges either just because you're delusional...
if you own a gun...you try not to blow your brains out in a fine mist....
Once again I am miles ahead of the power curve. I have been boycotting them for years, mainly because of the crappy food and plastic, forced atmosphere...
Come on! That'll never fit on a napkin!
Once again confirming that some of those who believe in god are delusional self centered fvcktards. And those are the good ones.
The Pope and the Vatican (and TV evangelicals) tend to disagree with you on that one
I'm at a loss of words. So stupid.
All I can muster is this:
When you act like an asshole, you get a reputation for it. And you have no one to blame but yourself.
Unless you try to hide your pride behind the concept of religion. I grew up PK, and while my dads was cool (split a church in 1/2 because he decided to march with MLK), people who surrounded him often took this stance.
well, this might be as good a time as any to go nakedly full-on bigot over this, but fcuk it.
- having worked for years in the restaurant "industry", black women are by far the worst tippers
- having friends who worked (emphasis on past tense) with black churches, they are the most demanding what-have-you-done-for-me-lately people, especially the women (like this pastor)
- waitress named chelsea? likely white. surprise, surprise pastor lois got uppity
- if it didn't shorten my life by 5 yrs & bankrupt me, i'd have breakfast/lunch/dinner at applebees....and get teh baby back ribs & wash it down w/ purple drank
"A white man who is in power cannot be a Christian, unless he gives up that power and give it to the black man" - James Cone
this isn't about christianity; this is about the undercurrent of social justice & black liberation theology
Paging Silver to the white courtesy phone....
just to agree with that.
worst tippers = tie between females (specially black ones) and single mexicans.
good tippers = middle age single white guys.
best tippers = gay male couple.
so, from my summer as a waiter while i was in college in the US, i can distinctly remember.... the worst possible table is a table with 4 single black females. you´ll be lucky to get $1 from each.
while the hispanics would leave a similar tip, they would much, much less demanding.
he's probably off in a half-packed stadium subverting a promise keepers convention...look for the guy with understated glitter on the corners of his mouth
When I hear the name, my punk rock mind sees:
