(Bridgewater, NJ) A family says a receipt showing they did not tip a waitress because she is gay was a fake and they can prove it.
Dayna Morales, a former Marine and a server at Gallop Asian Bistro in Bridgewater, posted a photo on Facebook earlier this month, showing the bill with a line through the space for a tip.
The photo of the receipt showed someone had written, “I’m sorry but I cannot tip because I do not agree with your lifestyle.”
Morales indicated in her Facebook post and to media the customer wrote the note.
The family however contacted WNBC-TV claiming their receipt from the restaurant shows they did leave a tip, and provided what they said was a credit card statement as proof.
The receipt shows an $18 tip on the total of $93.55.
The wife says she is left-handed and could not have made the slash in the tip line, which she said looks to be drawn from the right.
The husband told WNBC-TV he and his wife have both worked in restaurants, believe in the value of tipping, and noted that he didn’t vote for Gov. Chris Christie because the governor doesn’t support gay marriage.
The waitress told WNBC-TV she was certain she did not receive a tip, and insisted the handwriting on the receipt was not hers.
