No Tip? IHOP Waitress Finds “Gay Is Wrong!” Written On Her Receipt

“Antigay Slurs Scrawled On Dinner Receipts” is officially a thing; an exciting new genre that has already commandeered an impressive number of hits in the “blogosphere,” a word we promise to never use again. So far, we’ve seen lesbian couples hassled by chefs, waiters learning they’ll burn in hell, and people totally lying about finding mean things written on their receipts. To name but a few.

Now Taylor Stewart, a waitress at the International House of Pancakes in Enid, Oklahoma, can add her story to this distinguished list.

“I’m a people person and that’s why I have this job because I love people,” she tells WQAD-TV, candidly.

“You know, and I like to serve them and, you know, make them happy.”

But on Monday night, one extremely rude customer managed to sully her usually sunny disposition — leaving an antigay slur scrawled on his dinner receipt.

While wrapping up a double shift, Stewart waited on a man and his three children, and screwed up one of the orders.

Though the mistake was quickly corrected and Taylor apologized, this customer continued being quite nasty to her, leaving a mess at the table (with the remnants of the meal, we mean), and storming out the door with his family once they were done eating.

Worst of all, instead of a tip for his family’s $36 meal, the man wrote “Gay is wrong!” on the receipt.

“I was just shocked,” Taylor says. “I was more shocked than hurt, but I mean it did hurt. If you don’t like it, If you don’t agree with it, that’s fine. That’s your own opinion, but I mean just let people be who they are and don’t say hurtful things.”

Neither Stewart nor any of the other IHOP employees recognized the customer, and WQAD was unable to identity him based on the signature on his receipt.

And while we’re at it, here are two more examples of this Antigay Receipt business: In April, a lesbian waitress received Biblical verse instead of a tip. And back in 2014, a transgender customer dining with eight friends atWashington D.C.’s Bistro 16 received a receipt with the words  “Gay bitches” scrawled on it. Oh, and then there’s this.

So, you see? Even though we’re starting to worry that every story along these lines is a hoax, it appears this receipt business really is a thing.

Watch the report below.
