"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?
