    St. Louis Pastor Under Fire After She Leaves Nasty Note for Waitress ? Then Gets Her Fired

    St. Louis pastor Alois Bell is under fire after leaving a nasty note for her waiter at a local Applebee?s restaurant.


    The pastor was upset that a tip was included on her check ? something the restaurant does for groups with over eight individuals.

    UPDATE: The waitress says she was fired for posting the receipt on the internet.

    UPDATE 2: Pastor Alois Bell called the restaurant today and got the waitress fired.

    Yahoo reported:

    An Applebee?s waitress who posted a receipt with a note from a pastor complaining about the automatic gratuity added to the bill on the Internet was fired on Wednesday after the pastor complained to her manager.

    Chelsea Welch, the waitress, wrote in an email to Yahoo News that the pastor (who has since been identified as Alois Bell) told Welch?s manager at the St. Louis-area Applebee?s that the ensuing firestorm had ?ruined? her reputation.

    8 people ate somewhere where they were served food and it only cost $35 bucks?

    They all get sides only?

    Anyone is capable of an angry moment, but curious about this church (given the name), I'm interested to read their church website.

    15 seconds in, and we're off to a great start. Adorning the bottom of "what they believe":

    FWIW this incident happened a month or so ago & the pastor in question received quite a bit of criticism from her flock, including a decrease in attendance. She also gave a pretty sincere apology (as opposed to the usual non-apology apology).

    ok ignore the above graphic (wrong church, although it had a pretty curious set of questions in its marriage survey... from my area growing up, nonetheless)

    but script didn't get the email forward until today!
    Good to know. Is it verified that she got her fired? Or just wrote a snippy note about a surprise tip (albeit a standard practice for big groups)?

    A few observations:


    1) Does 'pastor' look like the same handwriting? Or an addition by the waitress?

    2) According to this, they charged her for the tip while also accepting the cash tip.
    3) Wow. Another scathing detail
    She deserved to be fired if it were her table, despite the justified anger. This takes it to a different level.

    All parties acted poorly here and there were no victims. Besides the poor saps at the table that received $4 meals.

    I'll have to look up links but the way I remember it...

    A friend called up Bell to let her know that her receipt had blown up on reddit.

    Bell called Applebee's demanding that everyone involved be fired.

    The employee who was fired was not the one who waited on Bell's party. The actual server showed her the receipt and she took a photo of it then posted the photo later.

    After the incident became big news Bell suffered the usual online & local harassment. That might be what prompted her to apologize but in her defense at least she actually did so. She also claims that she did leave a $6 tip in cash but was annoyed that it was automatically added to her bill.

    Edit: OK tracked down some of the original links

    Summary of the events.
    Comments from the server who was fired.
    Alois Bell's apology.

    This has a pretty good breakdown, as well as a video interview into the psyche of the pastor :so:

    For a minute I thought she was going to own up to it, say that she was reaping what she had sown. Instead she takes a left turn and says it was so she could learn what it was like to have something go viral, since she does a lot of that in her online ministry :so:
