New Jersey Waitress Denied Tip Due to "Gay Lifestyle"

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Sadly, it has happened again.

A couple weeks after patrons at a Kansas restaurant stiffed a waiter on a tip because his "homosexual lifestyle is an affront to God," according the message they left on their check, a server in New Jersey has been faced with the same unfortunate fate.

Dayna Morales, a former Marine, shared her experience with the LGBT-friendly blog "Have a Gay Day," recounting how the mother of two children was shocked by Dayna's short hair.

When Morales then went to collect payment on a $93.55 tab, she found the following note in lieu of a tip:

"I'm sorry but I cannot tip because I don't agree with your lifestyle & how you live your life."

Morales posted the note (above) on Facebook and included with it the following rant:

"I am THOROUGHLY offended mad pissed off and hurt that THIS is what her kids will grow up learning and that I served in the Marines to keep ignorant people like them free.

Gay Lifestyle Receipt

"Sorry lady but I don't agree with YOUR lifestyle and the way you're raising your kids but you didn't see me throwing that in your face and giving you shitty service. Keep your damn mouth shut and pray we never cross paths again."

Insulting notes left on restaurant receipts are tragically all the rage these days:

  • In October, a Red Lobster waitress was stunned to find a note from a customer that referred to her as the N-Word.
  • Meanwhile, a pastor somehow refused to tip a waitress back in January because he said he already gives God 10% and she, therefore, did not deserve 18.

Seems like this is becoming common now. Remember the first girl who received something like $10,000 because of the insult on her server check. Not long after that it was someone else and now this. Makes you wonder if this isn't becoming a habit. Some people just like attention.


I thought that the case of the waitress called the N-word was said to be fraud and the waitress is the one who wrote the note after the differences in the handwriting styles were discovered


People are nuts...that's all there is to it!


OH hell no i'm a waitress and i would have lost my job over that one. The customer is NOT always right!! you can NOT judge a book by its' cover. I def would have confronted her. SOO would have been worth it to lose my job to see her face as i cussed her out for being an dumb ass low life and a shitty ass mom


Doesn't the Bible teach that we are not the judges of our fellow men and women? It s not anyone else's business if people are gay or straight, what race or religion. I frankly think it's an excuse to be cheapskates. So live your religion 100 percent if you have make an issue of it!

@ Louetta Moore

Yes it does say in the bible not to judge and it also talks about homosexuality is wrong to I don't agree with there life style but still treat them like a person you don't dislike the person but dislike the sin !

@ Louetta Moore

Louetta, are you 100% sure that this actually happened? I'm not.


It is one thing to not tip your server for bad SERVICE. I will never understand why people feel that they need to express themselves on a damn receipt. Writing insulting comments on a receipt is outrageous. What makes these people think that they have the right to announce these things? I doubt this woman cared about your damn opinion and quite honestly as a server it's get in, and get the hell out. Her duty was to give you good service, which she probably did. This just pisses me off! Keep your damn comments to yourself. This person that you insulted served our country! Something you could never do, coward.


It should not matter whether a person's lifestyle is acceptable to a person. You receive service, and you tip accordingly! It's that simple! It's unbelievable that there are still so many ignorant people out their shaming themselves by these hurtful acts. If you can afford a $93 meal, than put out the extra bit for a tip or stay home if people are so offensive to you!


Tips are not mandatory...No patron of any restaurant is required by law to leave one..The comment was uncalled for and the woman should have been barred from future visits to the restaurant...But I will bet that the restaurant did nothing about the patrons behavior and insulting note..We live in a land of free speech, as long as they are just voicing their opinion, not much can be done to stop it..


it's around $2.10 to $2.13 here in Odessa , Texas...and NO to the comment ..your are supposed to tip...I'm sorry but if my service sucked the server is NOT getting a tip...I start at the beginning of the meal at 20% for the tip and it goes up or down depending on the service and the food(yes the food because if i complain about the food and nothing is done that falls back to service) if my tea glass goes empty tip goes down ....if you do everything right and food is great you get at least 20% ...I have tipped as high as 65% because of service and food....but I have also left a penny because it was so rotten..but if you do a bad job you are NOT GETTING A TIP


this is bullshit no one has the right to deny someone their way to live just becuase of how their sexuality is dont ever let me find one of yo in my store ill have my boos who is gay throw ur ass out in the damn streets im bisexual so i dont put up with hateful shit like this go fuck yourselves and ur insults your not an adult ur a child
