Server stiffed by church on $735 bill, then fired over Facebook post

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (Full story via WFLA) – A server at an Outback Steakhouse in Palm Beach Gardens was fired after posting about not being tipped on her Facebook page.

On Wednesday, Tamlynn Yoder, 25, said she helped members of Christ Fellowship, a local mega church with a delivery order. The church ordered 75 items, including 25 steaks, 25 chicken dinners and 25 sides of potatoes, and did not leave her a tip on their $735 bill.

“When I brought it out and put it in the car and received the payment, there was no gratuity. I got upset. I posted a post on Facebook about the church not leaving a gratuity tip,” Tamalyn told WPTV. “We live off of tips. If we don’t have that then we have nothing.” Yoder said she only received $18 in tips that day from other orders because she was occupied with the mega church’s order.

The following day, Yoder said she was fired and the church received a full refund. The Church has since reached out, and is trying to resolve the matter to everyone's satisfaction.
