"I give God 10%, why do you get 18?"

February 1, 2013

 Applebee's fired a waitress for posting a customer’s receipt on Reddit.  The waitress, Chelsea Welch, posted the receipt after receiving a $0 tip from a customer.

The customer, identified as pastor Alois Bell, crossed out the suggested 18% tip and wrote "I give God 10%, why do you get 18?"

The pastor has expressed regret for the incident. "My heart is really broken... I've brought embarrassment to my church and ministry."

What do you think about this incident?

Was Applebee's right in firing Chelsea?

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
