Waitress stiffed on $735 takeout order, then fired for calling out customer on FB
LINK

She got what she deserved IMO. You don't call out customers on social media without expecting consequences.
quote:

Christ Fellowship Church placed a $735 takeout order and sent someone to pick it up. They did not leave a gratuity for the order.

“We take the order over the phone, we put the order together, take payment and then take order to the car,” Yoder told the Palm Beach Post. “It’s a lot of work just as much as serving.”

Yoder took to Facebook in frustration and called out Christ Church on not leaving a tip, but didn’t mention where she worked.
WTF does this have to do with anything? Damage was done when she outed the customer.

quote:

A friend of Yoder’s told her to delete the post and that he would call the church about the tip. When Yoder came into work the next day, she was told that the church had been given a full refund and that she was fired.
Idiots

quote:

“We did not call the restaurant to have her fired; we wanted to get the situation resolved,” said David Lonsberry, an executive director of business for Christ Fellowship, in an interview with the Post.
Sure they didn't.

They sure did accept their $735 refund though. How righteous of them.

quote:

“We take the order over the phone, we put the order together, take payment and then take order to the car,” Yoder told the Palm Beach Post. “It’s a lot of work just as much as serving.”
I wonder if those 20 minutes were worth losing her job over?

How many times did she refill their drinks? Remove appetizers? Bring bread? Bring condiments? Replace silverware?

Everyone operating a cash register thinks they deserve a tip these days

Giving the church a refund was stupid but paying a tip on a takeout order is also stupid.

I mean, I would have been pissed off if that happened to me...but yeah....anyone with common sense knows that mouthing off on social media about job stuff is a dumb move that can never lead to anything good.

Lol. No. That's called regular tasks of their job. No tip required.

So she deserves $110.25-$147 for that in your opinion? Because if they would've given her $50 the complaint would still be that it was too little. She considers herself equal to a waitress, which means she demands 15-20%

I don’t disagree, but she sure as heck wanted that 15-20% she thinks she deserves.

Boxing it up. Don't agree that it is as hard as serving, but it is pretty lame to not tip on an order that large. Should have given them 20 bucks or something.

It was $735 worth of takeout food...that is a lot of stuff to get together.


Anyone that doesn't tip at least a small amount for takeout from a restaurant where you normally sit down to eat is pure trash. No one is saying you tip 20%...but at least 10% is standard.


ETA: Depending on the restaurant...Take out is usually assigned to various wait staff. You still rely on tips usually when assigned to take out. You usually have a smaller actual section of the restaurant and are assigned take out.

Agree. I tip for takeout because I know the industry sucks & doesn’t always pay servers a regular wage for getting it together, but it’s a restaurant problem if servers aren’t paid adequately for assembling takeout orders; not the customer’s.

She was stupid for calling them out publicly, but it’s a dick move to not tip a little on a $735 order. Even if the church fund is strapped and not accustomed to tipping, the parishioners should have thrown in $20 bucks or so. Hell thats only 3%.

Tamlynn Yoder, 25, of Lake Park, Fla., lost her job at Outback Steakhouse after she complained in a social media post about not getting a tip.

Christ Fellowship Church placed a $735 takeout order and sent someone to pick it up. They did not leave a gratuity for the order.


Outback is so overpriced that $735 probably got like 4 steaks and 5 bloomin onions.

Usually the people handling takeout orders aren't getting paid waitress wages.
