An Applebee's waitress who posted a receipt on Reddit showing a note from a pastor complaining about the automatic suggested gratuity has reportedly been fired.

After the pastor complained to her manager, no less.


Chelsea Welch, the waitress, tells Yahoo News that the pastor (since identified as Alois Bell) told Welch's manager that the ensuing firestorm "ruined" her reputation.

"I give God 10%," the pastor wrote on the receipt, scratching out the automatic tip and scribbling in an emphatic "0" where the additional tip would be.

"Why do you get 18?"

Will there be six more weeks of winter after tomorrow morning? Or will spring come early to a nation reeling from wild weather swings in January?

Only Punxsutawney Phil knows the answer.

February 2 is Groundhog Day, of course, when the affable, titular rodent emerges from his Gobbler's Knob home and sees his shadow ... or doesn't!

If there's a shadow sighting by Phil at daybreak Saturday, six more weeks of winter will be upon us. But if there's no shadow, early spring baby!

In the past 115 years, Punxsutawney Phil has foreseen the coming of "early spring" a mere 15 times, not surprising since he lives in Western Pennsylvania.

However, the forecast for tonight is overcast with a chance of snow, so here's hoping!

UPDATE, 2/2/13: The Groundhog Day prediction is in: NO SHADOW!

Tennessee State Sen. Stacey Campfield personally replied to an email from a constituent this week ... and told that person to seek therapy or go on meds.

Campfield, a Republican, reintroduced the "Classroom Protection Act," also known as the "Don't Say Gay" bill, to the General Assembly this week.

The bill forbids teachers from discussing anything gay-related from kindergarten through 8th grade, even banning the word "gay" itself from discussion.

The legislation also has a provision requiring teachers to out potentially gay students to their parents. Suffice it to say, this controversial bill has ben polarizing.

One concerned Tennessean emailed him the following:

Don't try to crash a news report by WKMG-6 Orlando's Jessica Sanchez.

She'll cut you down to size in two seconds, as a drunken reveler found out this week in New Orleans, where Sanchez is covering Sunday's Super Bowl festivities.

As Jessica began her report talking about the "zombies" that are wandering around late night, she was greeted by a 49ers fan who tried to video bomb the segment.

Her response? And the drunk fan's response to that response?

You gotta see it to appreciate it:

For many years, the Miami Dolphins tried hard to keep Dan Marino protected in the pocket.

Unfortunately for this record-breaking quarterback, he failed to heed the same action when having an affair many years ago with Donna Savattere, as news dropped this week that Marino fathered a baby out of wedlock with that CBS employee.

So, who the heck is Donna Savattere? A few facts about the mother of Marino's seven-year old daughter...

There are outrageous receipts, and then there's this one.

There are reasons not to leave a tip, and then ... this.

A Reddit user recently shared how a local pastor dealt with an suggested tip of 18%, crossing it off to tip NOTHING instead ... because God's already getting 10 ...


"My mistake sir, I'm sure Jesus will pay for my rent and groceries," the Redditor lamented.

Don't ask us how Jesus feels about being blatantly rude, regardless of one's beliefs in tipping etiquette, toward other human beings who did nothing wrong.

Also, don't pastors want to increase people's faith in humanity and in love and compassion?

Pretty sure this ruined whatever the poor girl had left.

George Zimmerman needs money to pay for his legal defense and wants to delay his trial because he says prosecutors have been slow to turn over evidence.

Attorneys for the ex-neighborhood watch volunteer charged with shooting Trayvon Martin to death on Wednesday asked for more time to prepare his case.


At the same time, his lead attorney, Mark O'Mara, renewed his request for donations to Zimmerman's legal defense, which he said could cost up to $1 million.

"The state has virtually unlimited resources to prosecute George," he said, whereas George "relies on the generosity of individuals who believe he is innocent."
