Waitress Denied Tip Because She’s Gay

A family in Bridgewater, New Jersey refuses to tip a waitress. Not because she gave them bad customer service but because she was gay.

Dayna Morales previously served in the Marines and is now a server at Gallop Asian Bistro. Dayna says instead of leaving a tip for the $93 the family wrote this on the receipt: “I’m sorry but I cannot tip because I do not agree with your lifestyle and how you live your life.”

Dayna kept the hateful “tip” and shared to with the gay-friendly blog, Have a Gay Day. She said that when she introduced herself to the couple and their two children, the mother was allegedly shocked by Morales’ short hair.

“Oh I thought you were gonna say your name is Dan,” she allegedly said. “You sure surprised us!”

I am so disgusted by this story and this family. Here is a woman who fought for our freedom and this family’s freedom and this is how you treat her?! What kind of message are you sending to your children? A tip is based on the customer service not a person’s looks or what you assume to be their sexual preference. Here’s a tip for this bigoted family. Why not take a bite of humble pie and while you’re at it take a big swig of tolerance.

And that’s today’s helping of The Online Dish with Maggie.
