How to Tip Correctly

Two women at a North Carolina restaurant stiffed their waitress on a tip, but it wasn't because she gave them bad service.

Alexandra Judd, an employee at Zada Janes in Charlotte, said she was infuriated and hurt by the message two patrons wrote in on the tip line of their bill, according to KAUZ.

Instead of leaving a monetary sign of appreciation, the customers scribbled Leviticus 20:13, a bible verse that specifically addresses punishment for homosexuality.

"If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination," the King James version of the Old Testament verse reads. "They shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them."

Judd, who happens to be a lesbian, took to Facebook to share the spiteful message. While Judd said customers have left her religious information before, it was nothing of this magnitude.

"I never expected a hateful gesture like this," Judd told KAUZ. "I've had a guest leave me a pamphlet to their church as a tip one time, but I didn't feel as if they were being hateful towards me. The ladies that came in were very rude, and would hardly talk to me - but I never expected this."

The women also wrote at the bottom of the receipt that they'd pray for Judd, which is something she says she doesn't want them to do.

"I don't care what anyone says, this is the most disrespectful thing you can do," Judd posted on Facebook. "Don't pray for me darling, I have everything I could possibly want and need in my life."

Kudos to you Judd for handling hate with such grace!
