Outback fires waitress for complaining Christian group stiffed her on tip for $735 order
A server at an Outback Steakhouse in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, says she was fired on Thursday after posting on social media that she was not tipped for a $735 take-out order placed by Christ Fellowship.
Tamlynn Yoder, 25, of Lake Park, said Christ Fellowship ordered 25 steaks, 25 chickens and 25 potatoes on Wednesday morning at the restaurant on Military Trail near Northlake Boulevard.
“We take the order over the phone, we put the order together, take payment and then take order to the car,” Yoder said. “It’s a lot of work, just as much as serving.”
Yoder said a person from Christ Fellowship came to pick up the order, and when Yoder put the food in the car, she received no tip. Yoder said because she spent most of her shift preparing the 75-item order for Christ Fellowship, she only made a total of $18 in tips that day on other orders.
