It takes a special kind of asshole to deny a server a tip, but the world is filled with special assholes, lacking brains and compassion but wielding credit cards, pens, and a holy sense of self-righteousness.
Dayna Morales, a former Marine and now a server at Gallop Asian Bistro in Bridgewater, N.J., served one of these assholes on Wednesday. As she wrote in an email to "Have a Gay Day," the trouble began when she approached a couple and their two small children in the restaurant:
I introduce myself and tell them my name is Dayna - the mom proceeds to look at me and say "oh I thought you were gonna say your name is Dan. You sure surprised us!"
"Sorry, I cannot tip because I do not agree with your lifestyle and the way you live your life."
Morales expressed her anger in a widely-circulated email, writing, "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."
But when people offered their support on Facebook, she graciously thanked everyone for their encouragement while also adding, "Not gonna lie if kids weren't there it would of been a totally different story."
