Dayna Morales, a server at the Gallop Asian Bistro in New Jersey, says that a couple she recently waited on not only didn't tip her, but also left a note on the receipt criticizing her lifestyle. So Morales took a photo of the receipt and uploaded it to the facebook page
of the "Have A Gay Day" organization.
The photo attracted a lot of publicity and sympathetic supporters soon sent Morales almost $3000, which she says she's donating to charity.
But the twist in the story: a couple has contacted a local news station
claiming they were the ones whom Morales served and a) they did tip her (almost 20%), and b) they didn't write any note on the receipt.
They have a customer copy of the receipt that matches the one Morales posted online, and their credit card statement shows they were charged the higher, tip-included amount — which lends credibility to their side of the story.
There seems to be a trend emerging here. It was a little over a month ago that doubts were cast on a very similar case
in which a waitress at Red Lobster claimed a customer wrote a racist note on the receipt (and also didn't tip her).
