Priest writes on restaurant receipt tip section 'I give God 10 percent'

Restaurant receipt 
By: Wayne Morin 

A waiter should not receive a bigger tip than God, at least according to one priest who recently refused to pay a generous tip at a restaurant.

A man claiming to be a priest reportedly stuck it up to a waiter after his meal and explained that since God receives a 10 percent cut of his earnings a waiter should not receive 18 percent.

A photo of the receipt, which was published on a popular social media website, showed a bill for $34.93 with an automatic gratuity of 18 percent or $6.29 with a blank space added for an additional tip.

"I give God 10%," he wrote on the receipt, scribbling out the automatic tip. "Why are you at 18?" Then he wrote "Priest" above his signature, and a big 0 to the additional tip line.

The user who submitted the image, explained in the comments section that the receipt was part of a total bill for a group of 20, which is why the gratuity was automatically added.

"Parties up to eight people can tip what they want, but larger parties receive an automatic gratuity," the server wrote.

"It's in the computer, not something I do," the waiter added.

The server also added: "He had no problem with my service and he said I was great. He just did not want to pay when the time came."
