A New Jersey restaurant server and former Marine, Dayna Morales, was left fuming after a customer stiffed her on a bill because the person did not agree with Morales’ “lifestyle.” Morales posted the receipt on the Facebook page for “Have a Gay Day.” The message from the customer reads:
I’m sorry but I cannot tip because I don’t agree with your lifestyle and how you live your life.
On November 26, the family who allegedly left the message, came forward to say they left a tip of $18 and didn’t write any note. The man in question, who asked not to be named went so far as to say that he wouldn’t vote for Gov. Christie over the gay marriage issue.
Original story below:
Here’s what you need to know about her:
1. Morales is Not Taking This Lying Down
Morales pulled no punches when she posted a picture of the receipt on Facebook, saying:
I am THOROUGHLY offended, mad, pissed off and hurt that THIS is what her kids will grow up learning and that I served in the Marines to keep ignorant people like them free.
Sorry, lady but I don’t agree with YOUR lifestyle and the way you’re raising your kids but you didn’t see me throwing that in your face and giving you shitty service. Keep your damn mouth shut and pray we never cross paths again.
2. Morales is a Former Marine
To put further shame on the leavers of the message, Morales is a proud former U.S. Marine.
3. The Woman Who Left the Note Expected Morales to Say Her Name was ‘Dan’
She says the customers were a mother and her two children who were shocked when Morales introduced herself as “Dayna,” reports Gay Star News.
4. Morales Kept Her Cool
Morales admitted if the woman had not been with her children, she may have reacted and it “would have been a different story.”
5. Sadly Morales is the Second Server to Encounter Bigoted Customers in a Month
In Kansas in October, a similar incident occurred where a waiter was denied a tip and left a note calling him a “fag.”
