Redditor ikma works in a restaurant in Washington, DC. Apparently, an older couple from the “Bible Belt” (her description) decided to leave her this as a tip. Here’s ikma’s thought progression:
“Cool, they left me a pretty good tip!”
“Wait a minute, something’s not right…”
So, yeah. This is, most definitely, not an okay tip to leave, Bible belters and tract leavers. If you want to leave this AND leave them a tip for their exceptional service, then whatever floats your boat. But in all honesty, I don’t believe that Jesus would have done anything this underhanded or deceitful to share his message. Tricking someone into thinking they were getting money, when in reality you were handing them a piece of meaningless paper, that act of which in and of itself is essentially lying? Congratulations. You have accomplished the opposite of what you set out to do. The server now hates the Christian religion even more than they might have used to.
I grew up around the rhetoric that if you were a Christian, that you needed to watch your actions because they speak louder than your words do. This kind of action shows this person that Christians are cheap, thoughtless and conniving. If you want to be a real “witness” to those who bring you your food and beverage, you better tip the shit out of them. That might change their minds.
