    I am so sorry for the waiter’s experience. I hope some real men and women of Christ have the opportunity to serve this server in a better way.

    Simply put, a Christ Follower does *not* do this stuff! There are plenty of boneheads out there who take the title, but this server did not encounter someone who really understands Christ (at all).

    B.

    Never been a server, but heard awful stories about the Sunday Lunch Crowd when I was in college.

    People would come in after church for a meal, and would leave stuff like this or–worse–would berate the server for working on Sunday.

    Doin it wrong, folks. Doin it wrong.

    A minister I used to know had the philosophy that you have to earn the right to speak. Before you proselytize, you perform some type of service for that person, the you invite them to hear you. The only way that silly tract would be appropriate is if there was a twenty folded up inside it.

    As a former waiter and current Christian, I agree with wizardpc. Some people do it wrong.

    I have some of these, and I don’t leave them as tips. I stick them in the Gideon bibles in the hotel. If you’ve got the bible out, you’re looking for something. Maybe this is it. And you shouldn’t be surprised or disappointed.

    I actually got one of these from a large group after being their server during Sunday Brunch. The one I got looked like a 20 and the backside said “Disappointed? Try Jesus.” Of course, this group fled immediately after dropping the “tip” on the table so I was not able to address my concerns with them.

    Given their reaction and picture… I wonder if it was good service. Somehow, I think not.

  7. Justthisguy Says:

    I saw this mentioned on another blog. Comments from Christians were in the vein of “Yer doing it wrong.”

    I suspect a stupid Baptist, but I repeat myself. Anglican is the only way to go, baby. We even use real wine for communion, and, yes, the little kids get a sip, too.

    To those yahoos who complained about selling on Sunday:
    Why are you buying on Sunday?

  8. Jennifer Says:

    Thanks for the blog fodder! Yes, this is totally doing it wrong.

  9. Ed Says:

    Next time you attend a church service, drop it in the collection plate. I am sure that they will appreciate the gesture.

    I found one of those folded up like cash on the floor at a place I worked. Went and gave it to my boss. He was shocked I had not unfolded it to put it in my wallet. And then he was disgusted that someone actually has something like that printed up…
