A server from New Jersey became a nationwide sensation after claiming she wasn't tipped because she is gay. How exactly the family is supposed to know if someone is gay or not just by looking at them is beyond me, especially in the world of metro sexual men. But she put a receipt out on social media that showed no tip left on a $93 tab along with a note saying they couldn't tip due to her lifestyle. She has been getting donations pouring in from all over the country and become sort of like a folk hero for donating some of her windfall to The Wounded Warrior Project.
A family has come forward with a receipt that matches the one that Ms. Morales has been showing off, the problem is that their receipt has not "hateful" note but does include a tip. Actually quite a nice one, $18, close to 20%. The family also has a copy of their visa bill that shows that a charge at that restaurant for that date with the dollar amount that matches the tab plus the tip.
The woman in question said she believes that it started out as a misunderstanding that she thought the hostess told her that her server was named Dan and said
"whoa, you're not Dan."
The server story is slightly different:
"oh I thought you were gonna say your name is Dan. You sure surprised us!"
The family decided to come forward because the story didn't seem to be going away. I am glad that they did come forward because this young woman is profiting off a lie that she is somehow a victim of bias and hate.
"I just felt like people have a right to know that -- it's fine if people want to donate to her or to the Wounded Warriors, but they're doing it under a false pretense,"
One would think that this young woman has some sort of agenda. Whatever could that be?
