GOOD. There are 10 people wanting her job that are not so hateful, People do not owe you anything, not even a tip if you give poor service. Listening to the waiter you can tell she was hateful. I agree with the preacher.

That is really bad - do you know if they are still there? If so they should be reported.

I had no idea that Applebee's would expect anyone to leave an 18% tip. That is really stupid. If they had a very large table, lot of people, maybe then. My husband was a Dealer at Harrah's in Reno. He always tips at least 20% if the dinner was great, service great, etc. However, it really depends on the establishment, and if your received great service also.

I Want to let everyone know that Kevin Blumenstock from Granite City is a child molester. He molested my daughter and got away with it. I found his child porn on his computer. And he always looks up child porn on the computer. He is abusive. He had sex with a first grader named tara fisher when he was in high school. He had sex with a 72 year old man. Also i caught him masturbating while eating his own poop. He has herpes. He masturbates to child porn stay away from him if you see him he is dangerous. Please let your friends know about him so they know who there messing with. Donít let this guy deny his behavior, he puts all our children at risk. Please see the attached file for his pictures

Yes they are still working there their names Megan keke and Alicia.. They have been spitting on people's food for awhile. I just to go to that place all the time until I was told that from a worker that works with them. It's nasty they need to get fired or something done with about it. They been doing it for a long while.

I believe the news report said it was a table of 10. That's a good size table.

Uh Huh is correct. It was an automatic 18% tip. A recent article states she(the pastor) apologized and takes responsibility for her actions. She was sorry alright. She was sorry her classless act went viral. I wouldn't be surprised if the earth rumbles when she walks in a religious building. Things like this remind me why it is ok to not attend church on Sundays.

It is NOT OK not to attend church. Just an excuse you use not attend church. What was your excuse before this happened.

To name a few---If you're not invited you're not welcome(kinda like crashing a party), can't afford to give 10% of my income, do not like Kool-Aid and I absolutely want nothing to do w/ child molesters (w/ the exception of reporting/convicting them.) I'd say those are pretty good reasons, not excuses.

There is not a church in Granite, Madison, Alton, Woodriver, E. St. Louis that would not welcome you with open arms. Have you ever been helped by a church? I attend a small church but we have made up baskets for the holidays for those who do not have enough food.

I clearly states on the menu that 18% will be added to a group of 8 or more .maybe she should learn how to read and besides a server has to claim 10% of each sale so she is at a loss with the irs .maybe your beloved pastor can make her up a nice basket and redeem herself .not

She apologized and left a tip, that was all that was required. It is nice to know that you are SO perfect.
