The New Jersey woman who claimed that she was denied a tip because of her gay lifestyle may not have told the truth when it comes the note left on the receipt for her. Dayna Morales, a former Marine (I am ashamed) posted on her Facebook account about an incident at her the New Jersey restaurant she was working at. The receipt supposedly had “I’m sorry but I cannot tip because I do not agree with your lifestyle and how you live your life” which was directed to Morales made national headlines and over $3,000 in donations were made to her.
The family that supposedly left the note disputes the claim and say they actually left a tip of $18.00 for Morales service. They even provided a copy of the receipt with the same time, date, but the totals were different. The husband also stated that even though the signature was blurred he and his wife can tell it is his signature. They claim that they would never write anything on a receipt that Morales claims was written on it.
Ms. Morales according to her employer, Gallop Asian Bistro is not on the current schedule and say they will conduct their own internal investigation and want the truth of this incident to come out.
Unfortunately there are many dishonest Americans in this country and there can be many possibilities to the incident at this New Jersey Bistro. The family could have written the tip in after the incident, or the waitress could have reprinted the receipt and forced the signature on it to gain sympathy from others in hoping to benefit financially from this incident.
Hopefully this story will find the truth to it for the sake of both parties. But to myself and millions of other Americans stories like this makes it hard to donate to those in need when others are scamming the system.
