Why This Pastor Tipped 50 Percent Today

Posted: Updated:

I do not swear all that much, but church people tend to bring out the worst in me.

So here it goes, cover your ears, "What the Frak?!?!?"

I give God 10% Why do you get 18

And then this pastor zeroed out the tip altogether. Are you kidding me?

"I'm sorry" just doesn't seem to cut it, but to the server who was stiffed, "I'm sorry."

For the record, we're not all like this pastor. Not only have I NEVER witnessed any of my pastor friends write "pastor" above their name on a receipt -- weird -- but many of us tip generously because we know that people in the service industry: food servers, hotel workers, etc. often make a good percentage of their living via tips. So thank you for serving our food, parking our cars, steaming our milk, cleaning our rooms and doing all the stuff that many "pastors" probably couldn't or wouldn't do themselves.

And again, "I am sorry."

I just tipped my barrista 50 percent in your honor.
