I hope someone is examining hand writing samples. I find this story over the top and completely unbelievable. I wouldn't be surprised if this "gay" person wrote this note himself.

Either way; crucifying a waiter for exemplary service is unacceptable adult behavior; regardless of who wrote the note
.
Of course; crucifying perfect people is what 'christians' do; so we really shouldn't be surprised now should we!

What I can't believe is how you continue to log onto a gay friendly computer and gay friendly computer company or service and yet you crow about boycotting all things gay. What's wrong, boycotting your computer INCONVENIENT for ya? Typical arm chair conservative...big talker, but never backs his EMPTY words with actions. Typical.

Now, ME, I would rather die than set foot into Chick Filet-A, and will NEVER abandon my principals, unlike you whose word is as leaky as a sieve.

You know what? Those two tight fisted cheap skates did gay rights a HUGE service and this kind of publicity is IMPOSSIBLE to buy. It is making tight ass conservatives look even more bad than they do, and gay folk getting huge sympathy. I would send the original jerk wads a huge thank you for their service to the LGBT community.

Ironic, ain't it, that their hateful behavior is actually helping the young man, and many others like him. It's TOO wonderful.

We only have the waiter's say so that this actually happened. For all we know, they tipped him royally and then he himself wrote the note on the back of the receipt. How on earth did they even know he was gay? Did he make a pass at the man? This story really doesn't seem plausible.

How you doing, Curteese? I've explained before that I did some reading and came to realize how businesses are coerced into "supporting" gay rights by the HRC. Strong arm tactics force them to donate money to keep the HRC from blaring negative stuff all over the world about them. That means I cut some slack to the companies that knuckle under to them and go out of my way to support those businesses that have leaders that have the balls to stand firm on their own convictions no matter what tantrums the HRC throws. Chick-Fil-A is just one of many. I made it a point to find out who they are, and I have been very happy to find out that I've been doing business with at least one of them for decades.

Yeah, ironic alright and completely implausible. Has anyone named these "tight ass conservatives"? I don't think so. No chance to hear their side of the story. Gays can make up anything they want in this manner to make "conservatives look even more bad than they do." Anybody who accepts it at face value without more information is just a patsy.

I would have more respect for someone who asked me not to serve them because I'm gay than someone who would use me for my services and then tell me I don't deserve a tip because I'm gay. The man could have gotten a different person to wait on him but instead of showing his homophobia upfront he wanted to get even with the person for being gay by giving him hope that he'd receive a tip and then dashed it all to pieces with the note on the ticket. That is blatant hatred and homophobia. He sought out to harm the gay man in that way.

I just see not tipping the waiter as stealing. You are stealing their services if you aren't paying them and stealing is against the Ten Commandments.

Well, since taxes already take 8% of a waiter's tips, and he or she must tip out 15% to the bus boy and 10% to the bartender/cashier, the wait person is out 33% before he even counts up his totals.

I hope you can actually tell the truth for once in your sorry pathological lying lifetime. I won't bet on it, however.
