A so-called ‘God’ receipt waitress was fired from her job, after a female pastor complained to her employer, Applebee’s. Pastor Alois Bell of the World Deliverance Ministries Church noted that a receipt with her handwritten note was posted at social site Reddit earlier this week, as shown in the photo below.

“My mistake sir, I’m sure Jesus will pay for my rent and groceries.” Applebee’s waitress Chelsea Welch wrote on her thread on Tuesday, January 29, 2013 under the username gateflan, along with the photo of a Applebee’s receipt with a note, “I give God 10 percent, why do you get 18?” written by Pastor Bell.
“It was just dumb. It was dumb of me and I can say that because I take responsibilities for all my actions.” Pastor Bell told Fox 2 News, emphasizing that she left $6.29 on the table despite putting a ‘zero’ on the Additional Tip portion of the ‘God’ receipt. An automatic 18 percent of her bill was charged on her credit card as a tip.
On the other hand, Chelsea Welch, a friend of the waitress who served Bell in their party at Applebee’s in South Kingshighway last week and also a waiter of the said restaurant, said that she saw the Bell‘s receipt and decided to post it on Reddit, which now has over 12,500 up votes and more than 4,300 comments.
“I took a picture of the note because I thought it was comically immature. I thought it was humorously silly, the fact that someone would not only refuse to tip, not only make themselves out to kind of be a jerk but also play the religion card as an excuse.” Welch told the report, adding that she really included Bell‘s signature on the ‘God’ receipt photo to prove that her post was legitimate.
“We wish this situation hadn’t happened. Our Guests’ personal information – including their meal check – is private, and neither Applebee’s nor its franchisees have a right to share this information publicly. We value our Guests’ trust above all else. Our franchisee has apologized to the Guest and has taken disciplinary action with the Team Member for violating their Guest’s right to privacy.” Applebee’s wrote on their official Facebook page this Thursday.
