USA, New Jersey: Did Waitress Lie About Anti Gay Note on Receipt?

Tuesday, November 26th, 2013

6a00d8341c730253ef019b01ac64c8970d-800wiA couple accused of leaving an anti-gay note on a restaurant receipt in New Jersey is coming forward to say they didn’t do it.

Towleroad reports:

Now a family has come forward claiming that Morales doctored the receipt and that they have the real copy, with an $18 tip that they gave to her, NBC 4 reports: They also provided a document they said was a Visa bill, which appears to indicate their card was charged for the meal plus the tip, for a total of $111.55. The couple told NBC 4 New York that they believed their receipt was used for a hoax. The wife says she is left-handed and could not have made the slash in the tip line, which she said looks to be drawn from the right.

So who is telling the truth here? You get two copies of the receipt with the space for the tip when you go to a restaurant, so it makes sense that the note would not be on the customer copy. But the fact that the customer can show that the tip was charged on their bill does throw the waitress’s statement and the question. What do you think?
