I highly doubt she earned being a pastor. It most likely obtained on the internet. Oh wait, someone that low class probably doe not even know what a computer is, let alone the internet...Dumb pitiful biotch!

I sent my comment to applebees and i wish i could see it and copy it and send it to u , im disgusted with Alouis Bell , then I look on the smoking gun website and in the Videos, Alois tries to play it off as a Joke, and i see no remorse , and then in the smoking gun news website, they actually, are telling her sad story, and talking about her books for sale for 10 bucks ,Im surprised Bell didnt write: I recieve 10 percent of other peoples money , no taxes , churches are EXEMPT , and why whould i give any to anyone else...
heres the reply i got from applebees
If you are contacting us regarding the receipt that is going around the internet, please know as a company that relies on literally hundreds of thousands of incredibly hard working team members, we can assure you that we and our franchisees value and support them and their efforts. However this unfortunate situation has nothing to do with work. The employee involved did not wait on the guest or party. Regrettably, and without the restaurant's knowledge, she took it upon herself to take a customer's receipt, with the name clearly visible, and posted it online with her own commentary. That is a clear violation of our guests’ privacy and against the franchisee's company policy that the team member was provided when hired. We simply cannot accept behavior that compromises the safety and privacy our guests have every right to expect and deserve. Please note that we are also not excusing the guest's behavior in this matter and the unacceptable comment she wrote on the receipt, which is offensive to us and all our hard working team members. To be clear, the 18% gratuity added to large party tickets was paid by the guests party. This is a regrettable situation and we wish it had never happened. We hope this provides you with some additional insight
This doesnt look good for . Alois bell, Applebees,or any Church , and i feel for Chelsea shees more believable ,, and I do not believe Bells story that she came back with, after this story broke , that she left a cash tip, bullshit !!! if she had there wouldnt be a problem,
just disgusted !!!!!!!!!! U Should fire Alois Bell and help Chelsea find a new job, this doesnt look good for Your church, Applebees, Chelsea, anyone who believes in God

As a pastor im sure you get paid a percentage of what the church brings in. Which im sure you expect all who come to your service to pay the "OFFERING"(your pocket) Then you get upset over the fact that you were expected to pay for someone elses service....You need to apologize to God, your church, the women and all of us who had to read about your horrible behavior. then you need to pay 30% of your pay to this women until she gets ajob

It's all in the name... We are servers, we serve you. We do our best to take care of you in the short time you visit any establishment. That is why I cannot understand how a supposed woman of faith whos mission it is to "serve" does not understand the importance of what we as "servers" do. In case no one informed you pastor, we make $2.13 an hour. So we rely on tips from you the customer. How do you expect us to pay our 10% to God? I am sure you make money from the service you provide to your church. Maybe the same approach should be given to you in which you serve your church for nothing. Just as the waitress who served you for not only nothing but more...you took away her livelihood. Quite frankly I think God is ashamed of the fact that you included him in your unwillingness to help a fellow sister.

As a former waitress, I ALWAYS tip at least 20%. As a Christian, I LOVE OVERTIPPING. I LOVE making someone's day amazing by giving them a HUGE tip in relation to how much the bill is. I once had a NYC waiter cry tears of joy as he profusely thanked me for such a generous tip. I am not extremely wealthy (yet) but if I couldn't afford to leave a good tip, I would SERVE MYSELF AT HOME! God admonishes us to be GENEROUS, not STINGY. Give and it shall be given unto you! Note: if the service is substandard, I still tip 20%, and leave a comment with the mgmt on how they can improve. Being a generous giver is a GOOD THING. Pastor Bell should get the stingy out of her heart and try it sometime!!

I guess the "Truth in The World" is that even those who profess love are STILL ugly inside. I waited tables as a single mother years ago and these servers work hard for that tip since the $2.25/hour they get paid doesn't go very far. SHAME on you Pastor Bell !! You need to make this right !!!!!

Not to mention they probably sat for three hours and took up a booth because everyone thinks it is ok to hold a book club or a bible service in a restaurant. How arrogant of a Christian pastor, then again pretty normal for those who say they are saved!

What a terrible person to act this way and pretend to be a person of god. I wish I lived close to this church so I could protest this so called preacher and her church. What sort of moral stories does she teach her followers on Sunday? Be kind to others? What would Jesus do? NO be too cheap to tip. Not be an asshole to another human being just because they exposed her behavior. SHAME ON HER!!!! I hate the fact she is a preacher and has the chance to spread her ignorance.

How horrible. My daughter has been a waitress at several restaurants over the years. I hear her stories and know how hard she works and how unappreciative people can be. This pastor was NOT embarrassed about her lapse of judgement, she was embarrassed that she was caught and called on it. Just like Tiger Woods and Bill Clinton when they had to admit their wrongs, they were not sorry or embarrassed at what they did, just that they got caught and exposed for their complete lack of character. I would only hope that everyone in her congregation leaves her or better yet, don't donate to the collection plate, because that is how SHE gets paid.

Bell should be fired, but would have to fire herself doing her little thing with 15 other people. Maybe Obama should take here 501-C3 away from her self made church.

Applebee's is a fast food restaurant that doesn't pay well or gurantee shifts, nor have benefits. I hope Welsh (young lady) get an opportunity to go to school and Bell should have to pay for it.

Good bye Applebee's I won't eat your fast food any longer. Hope no one else does either.

I wonder if this so called pastor ever had a job before she somehow became a pastor??? Maybe she was on welfare all her life before because she does not know what it is like working a min. wage job.I will pray for her because God will judge her and give her what reward she deserves for her testimony.

I love that!!!.The Lord loves a cheerful giver & blesses such. I am retired and eat out often & love those in the business of serving, preparing, managing & the ones that clean up and do the little appreciated work .I try to give 18% tips to be shared but in future will give at least 20% or more as I was blessed by your posting and also know that the Lord blesses one more than the blesser. Thank.. Love in HIM.Earl

Not only does Alois Bell perpetuate the stereotype of our race, but she also had to be belligerent with her unkind words to rub salt in the wound of this server.

Because of people like her and how negative she acts, a respectable Black man such as myself (and my family) may be looked upon as disrespectful as Ms. Bell.

Did Ms. Bell and the others make the server run around for them? Making her bring her extra napkins, extra ranch dressing, several refills of drinks, etc? At the same time speaking to the server in a rude, "wait on me", and authoritative manner? I am more than positive she did. Ms. Bell then has the nerve to try to get the ENTIRE wait staff terminated? I do not even think that the server should have been fired as a result of this.

It sounds like Alois Bell is more than likely a hypocrite on how she treats and thinks of others. We are all supposed to be children of GOD, which means ALL of us are brothers and sisters and we need to take better care of one other.

Alois Bell should be deeply ashamed of herself of how she treated this young lady server who is trying to just make an honest living. She is not there for charity work. In addition, Ms. Bell should be ashamed as an African-American as she helps perpetuate the stereotypes and negative perceptions of all People of Color.

Ms. Bell (and everyone!): The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. If you want the world to change in regard to prejudice, stereotypes and racism, you need to do YOUR part to help make this change happen.

Thank you Ms. Bell for setting things back for African-Americans just a little more than yesterday. One step forward, two steps back.

I can't get this story out of my mind. Take an ignorant woman with an inflated self-worth, let her eat at a cheap right leaning corporation who panders to these ignorant customers rather than showing some support for the staff and this is what will happen. I live in a completely different part of the county but would never eat at another Applebee's. And if Pastor Bell is the best and brightest, do yourself a favor and dump her. No loss to you at all.
