Cheap Religious Freak Encounter: Waiter Receives Fake $20 Bill For Tip That Turns into a Religious Pamphlet
From Tech Insider:
17-year-old Garret Wayman, who works as a waiter at a restaurant in a suburb of Wichita, Kansas, said he was excited on Tuesday to see a $20 bill tucked under a ketchup bottle as a tip.
But on closer inspection, his excitement turned to irritation after he said he realized the tip was a fake.
A customer had really left Wayman a religious pamphlet disguised to look like money that recommended he seek "faith thru Jesus Christ" and start reading the bible.
Here's a closer look at the fake money:
"I'm 17-years-old, $7,000 in debt because I had to buy myself a car, juggling full-time school, and working seven days a week," Wayman told Tech Insider, adding that he was excited to see the cash at first because "getting a $20 tip at the restaurant I work at is very, very rare."
Instead, here's what Wayman said he found when he unfolded the fake $20:
"Don't be fooled! There is something you can have more valuable than money," reads the intro to the pamphlet. On the back is an eight-paragraph argument for why Wayman should buy a bible and become a Christian.
Wayman told Tech Insider the customer didn't leave a real tip to accompany the proselytizing pamphlet either.
"He just left that," Wayman said. "I wanted to tell him that I only make $3 an hour and bust my a-- at my job to make way less than I deserve, but he was gone by the time I had the chance to."
Frustrated, Wayman shared pictures of the fake tip on Twitter, where they have been retweeted over 2,000 times.
