Pastor leaves rude comment on receipt, Waitress fired for posting it on Internet

with one comment

It’s an outrage!! That is pretty much what everyone who has something to say about this news story has to say. However, not everyone agrees as to why. Some say it is because this woman was so rude to write that comment on the receipt. Some say it is because someone had the audacity to post a picture of the receipt online. Either way, this would not even be in the news if not for camera phones and the Internet. Things like this happen all the time in the food industry, but thanks to modern multimedia technology, we are probably going to be hearing about his for quite some time.

  1. You make a good point. The comment the pastor made probably has been made before, or could have been. What’s new now is the power of social media to make things viral. That’s a power that we can also harness in this class!
