A gay waitress in Illinois recently received no tip from a group of customers but the more surprising aspect of that interaction was the note on the receipt, which said, in part, "Can't tip someone who doesn't love Jesus."
According to the Rock River Times the incident occurred at a Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant where Samantha Heaton served a family of five.
She said there weren't any noticeable problems during the meal but when they left she noticed that they had left her a message, rather than a tip, on their bill.
It read: "Can't tip someone that doesn't love Jesus! Bad tattoo."
An image of the bill and the server's arm were posted on Facebook, along with the caption: "I would just like to say that being gay does NOT MEAN you don't believe in God or Jesus.
"And people who are 'religious' should not disrespect of act in such ways to other people.
"P.s they spelled tattoo wrong."
Heaton, who is openly gay, has indicated that the family never asked her about her tattoo, sexual orientation or religious beliefs.
She said: "I do believe in Jesus and God. I myself am a Christian. And, as a Christian, thou shall not judge."
