Waiters and waitresses, I'm done believing your stories of ----ists leaving unbelievably nasty messages in lieu of tips. I got stiffed from time to time, you will be too. Suck it up and stop making up bullshit stories about ists who hate you, hoping that your prevarication will go viral. Viral prevarications are bad, especially if you are putting yourself out as a victimized member of a disadvantaged group, because fair or not, you taint the whole group when you get busted.
And media, stop reporting on this stuff. It's not news even if it proves true. It's only news when it becomes a story and it's found to be bullshit. And that's not the story you were looking for, was it?
Lesbian waitress Dayna Morales claimed someone stiffed her and wrote "I'm sorry but I cannot tip because I do not agree with your lifestyle and how you live your life." She submitted it to gay advocay forums and became instantly famous.
I because suspicious when I read that the waitress was raking in profits from sympathetic donors and saw her writing embellishments like "It took everything I had to no spit in their food." Yeah, except you bring the food first, THEN they eat it, THEN you give them the bill and THEN, if they stiff you and insult you, you find out about it. No food to spit in.
Sure enough, evidence is in that she made the whole thing up. The family, however, who claim to be pro-gay rights, say they never wrote the hateful message, and they even tipped her 20%, and they have both the bill and the credit card bill to prove it.
Why would she do it? Friends and colleagues say that's just who she is. She tells whoppers to get attention. She sure got a lot of it this time.
