Quote:Family Says They Did Tip Gay Server, Didn't Leave Note

After a gay server at a New Jersey restaurant said a customer denied her a tip and wrote her a hateful note on the receipt, a local family contacted NBC 4 New York and said their receipt shows they paid a tip and didn't write any such note.

Dayna Morales, a former Marine and a server at Gallop Asian Bistro in Bridgewater, posted a photo on Facebook earlier this month, showing the bill with a line through the space for a tip. The photo of the receipt showed someone had written, "I'm sorry but I cannot tip because I do not agree with your lifestyle."

Morales indicated in her Facebook post, and in subsequent media interviews -- including with NBC 4 New York -- that the customer wrote that line.

But a family contacted NBC 4 New York claiming their receipt from the restaurant shows they did leave a tip, and provided what they said was a credit card statement as proof.

The husband and wife, who asked to remain anonymous, showed NBC 4 New York a receipt that appeared to be printed at the same minute, on the same date, for the same $93.55 total, except with an $18 tip.

They also provided a document they said was a Visa bill, which appears to indicate their card was charged for the meal plus the tip, for a total of $111.55.

The couple told NBC 4 New York that they believed their receipt was used for a hoax. The wife says she is left-handed and could not have made the slash in the tip line, which she said looks to be drawn from the right.

"We've never not left a tip when someone gave good service, and we would never leave a note like that," the wife said.

The husband said he and his wife have both worked in restaurants and believe in the value of tipping, and noted that he didn't vote for Gov. Chris Christie because the governor doesn't support gay marriage.

"Never would a message like that come from us," he said.

Morales told NBC 4 New York on Monday that she was certain she did not receive a tip, and insisted the handwriting on the receipt was not hers. When asked if there had been some sort of misunderstanding, she said, "I don't know, all I know is what I've been saying."

A manager and the restaurant owner insisted they had the original ticket for the $93.55 charge, but would not produce the receipt for NBC 4 New York and could not explain why the family's credit card was charged for more.

I saw this story when it first came out, and I saw this story this morning. I hope the server in question actually did donate the money to the WWP, otherwise I'd say they're guilty of fraud.

Personally, I'm shocked by this because I've never heard of a gay person trying to draw attention to the fact that they're gay.

And gay or not, this lady sucks.

That's what I was wondering when I first read about this story last week or so. How did the family know their server was gay, it isn't something that normally comes up in the server/guest relationship.

She did it because nowadays people send money to the "wronged". The handwriting doesn't even match between the receipts.

I do not support gay marriage and I also could care less about what sexual orientation my server is.

I do not tip based on lifestyle, I tip based on how well they provide me service, and everyone starts out at getting a 20% tip and that amount goes down based upon how poor a job they do.

I wonder if the family will sue for libel?

Were they ever identified? If so, they should and I hope they win.

If they weren't, there is no reason to sue.

In any case, this chick should lose her job at a minimum.

The info on the albeit-redacted receipt that she made public was arguably sufficient to identify them.

When I saw what she posted, my second thought was "Oh, shit, even if she's right, she's dead right, because she just posted a customer's personal document on a social media site, and there is absolutely no way a company can countenance such an action for any reason whatsoever. She's basically forced them to fire her."

Then they didn't.

As I see it, even if the customers are utter assholes (which is now somewhat in doubt) they have a defamation and breach of privacy case.
