I just gave God 10%…

I am a current restaurant manager and have been in the business for 17 years. Sundays have always been the worst. Working a 14 hour shifton Sunday visiting tables is the worst part of my  week. Most of the guests are very rude and condescending. I have been asked why I am working on aSunday instead of being in Church. However someone has to be there to take care of you. We have the most complaints on Sundays and are cursed at more than any other day.  I am constantly having to comfort servers who are very upset and sometimes crying. It’s almost impossible to staff a restaurant on Sundays due to the rude guests and in turn we have to make working Sunday a requirement to be employed their. Which means less of our staff can enjoy going to church at all. It’s very sad and a vicious cycle that seems to never end. The worst part is instead of leaving a tip some actually write “I just gave God 10% why would I give you anything?”.

One thought on “I just gave God 10%…”

  1. Thank you for sharing your experience…especially from the management side. I’m sorry that you have console servers after their interaction with some church goers. I’m sorry that it’s your hardest and most demanding day of the week. I hope that over time, your experience with fellow Christians will be much more positive.
    Please accept our sincerest apologies from Preaching Christ Church for the times that Christians have made your job much harder. We apologize for times that Christians are rude, inconsiderate or lousy tippers. Thank for taking your time to share on our site! – Pastor Chad Roberts
