Waiter Says Customer Called Him A 'Faggot' Instead Of Leaving A Tip

Just awful!

A Louisville man who works as a waiter at a local sports bar says that a recent customer left him a nasty, hateful message, in lieu of a tip. 

Kyle Griffith, who works at Buffalo Wild Wings, prides himself upon giving quality service to all of his customers. 

Which is why it came of a shock to him to encounter two surly young women.

"I ended up cashing them out, gave them boxes, told them if they needed anything else before they headed out to let me know,” Griffith said to WDRB

Griffith did not observe anything out of the ordinary until he picked up their check. 

"And it said 'Sorry I don't tip f*****s,' and then said '#UNeedJesus,' and it just crushed me that someone could say something like that.”

Distraught, the young man explained:

"I depend on those tips to be able to pay my bills and everything else ... to live, to eat, everything,” 

Griffith shared a photo of the receipt to his Facebook page, but obscured the customer's name, indicating that he wanted to call attention to her message, not her identity. 

"I woke up the next day and saw that it was being shared a whole lot more than I ever thought it would.”

He added: 

"I want to be able to tell everyone that this is not a lie, that this is truth, this is an everyday happening,” he said. ”It's an occurrence that ... can't happen any longer. It's got to stop. The hate has to stop. There's no reason for it." 

In response to the incident, Buffalo Wild Wings issued the following statement:

“We’re disappointed to learn about the comment left on a receipt by a Guest at one of our independently owned franchise locations in Louisville recently. Because Buffalo Wild Wings is about creating a great guest experience, we feel strongly that our restaurant environment needs to be respectful in order to provide the experience that our Guests and Team Members expect and deserve.“

Griffith said that he did eventually get an apology from the rude customer.

"She did apologize and said that it was a joke and that it shouldn't have been a joke and that she felt bad for it,” he said. "It's not something you should joke about. My sexual preference at all shouldn't be something someone should joke about."

Her apology should not have been accepted. She should have been called out on it, the check with her name & comments should have been posted on Facebook, and various other media outlets. We will not accept bigotry, prejudice, hatred & such uneducated ignorance, especially when such individuals hide behind "I'm a Christian". Bullshit. No one is born full of the hate that was issued to the waiter, it has to be taught and she needed to be taught a valuable lesson for her mistake.

I'm constantly amazed at the hypocrisy I need the world. People everywhere say stupid hateful things but the moment they're busted or questioned or investigated or their presidential candidate loses, they immediately recant or apologize. No. That does not work anymore. Your apologies or back-peddling no longer counts. You said what you said and you meant it.  Remember: when people show you who they are - believe them!  

At least stand up for what you've said, as stupid or hateful as it might be. Don't be a hypocrite. Just be your stupid hateful self.  I'd rather people be real and horrible than fake an drew offering up disingenuous apologies.

She apologized. So? Did she tip him? Did she explain how something like that could be a joke?... Then, it wasn't a joke, she gave a hollow apology just to assauge her ego and try and keep the full weight of her community from falling onto her shoulders. Being that transparant AND disingenuous? Yep, sounds like a true Christian.
