A lesbian server in New Jersey says a
family of four gypped her out of a tip, leaving instead a note
critical of her “lifestyle.”
Dayna Morales, a server at Gallop Asian
Bistro in Bridgewater, wrote about her experience in an email to the
blog Have A Gay Day.
“Sorry I cannot tip because I do not
agree with your lifestyle & the way you live your life,” the
patron wrote on the receipt for a nearly $100 meal.
“NEVER in a million years did I think
this would happen,” Morales wrote. “Not only was it a family
with two kids, but as I introduced myself and tell them my name is
Dayna – the mom proceeds to look at me and say, 'Oh I thought you
were gonna say your name is Dan. You sure surprised us!”
“I am THOROUGHLY offended mad pissed
off and hurt that THIS is what her kids will grow up learning and
that I served in the Marines to keep ignorant people like them free.
Sorry lady but I don't agree with YOUR lifestyle and the way you're
raising your kids but you didn't see me throwing that in your face
and giving you shitty service. Keep your damn mouth shut and pray we
never cross paths again,” she added.
The note and a photo of the receipt was
posted on the
Facebook page of Have A Gay Day, where it has received
thousands of supportive comments.
“Thanks everyone for your support –
it took every fiber of my being not to spit in their food and say
something. (Not gonna lie, if kids weren't there it would have been
a totally different story),” Morales wrote in response.
A similar incident at a Kansas City
Carrabba's Italian Grill attracted national headlines in October.
refuse to tip server because being a “fag” is an affront to God.)
