Family Claims Lesbian Waitress Lying About Being Denied A Tip Based On Her “Lifestyle”

receiptsWaves of support and money came rolling in after former U.S. Marine Dayna Morales claimed a family had refused to tip her because she was a lesbian and left her an insulting note after serving them at Gallup Asian Bistro in Bridgewater, New Jersey earlier this month. Now, the family is calling foul — arguing that not only did they tip Morales, but they never left a note criticizing her “lifestyle.”

The husband and wife whom Morales served contacted NBC 4 New York shortly after Morales’s story went viral. They had in their possession the customer copy of their receipt, bearing the same date and time stamp, as well as an $18 tip on their $93.55 bill. The couple, who asked to remain anonymous, also provided their bank statement, including a charge of $111.55 to Gallup Asian Bistro, as further proof.

“We’ve never not left a tip when someone gave good service, and we would never leave a note like that,” the wife said. Her husband claims both he and his wife have worked in restaurants and believe that tipping isn’t just a city in China.

He added that he didn’t vote for Gov. Chris Christie due to Christie’s opposition to gay marriage. “Never would a message like that come from us,” he said.

When confronted by NBC, Morales denied forging the note and insisted she did not receive a tip. The whole thing may turn out to be one big, unfortunate misunderstanding, but the restaurant is launching an “internal investigation.”

Morales still plans to donate the money she has received in sympathy to the Wounded Warrior Project, a not-for-profit providing programs and services to members of the armed forces severely injured in the line of duty.

The couple told NBC “it’s fine if people want to donate to her or to the Wounded Warriors,” but they came forward to let others know that they were doing so “under a false pretense.”

      “Unfortunate misunderstanding” my foot. Someone is lying. And if its Morales, she has done the LGBT community NO favors.

      I can provide numerous restaurant receipts that don’t match the merchant copy. I tip cash or only write the tip amount on the merchant copy and shove the blank copy in my pocket. If I really didn’t approve of the lifestyle and didn’t tip I would do anything I could to discredit them also. Copies of bank statements can be “fixed” to show what you want them to show also. If the original merchant copy does not match the guest copy, I’m more inclined in believing the waitress and thinking that the non tipper is furthering their cruel attack.

      @qlm: Absolutely, the ball is completely in her court, they attacked her and they can’t take the publicity it has caused.

      Why would a former marine target them out of the blue, why not an old couple or a young couple or obvious christian couple?

      The families version of events doesn’t add up.

      Also as someone who has [seen] doctored bank statements and merchant copies I can vouch for what QLM says to be true.

      Odd that restaurant patrons would be privy to the sexuality of their server, and even odder they would risk public discord by making such a bold and foolish statement. Coming on the heels of a dozen other instances in which a restaurant patron supposedly attacked their waitress personally (and it’s always a female server—go figure), I’m suspicious, but this can all be easily proven or disproven with the customer’s credit card record. It’ll be interesting to see who ends up being the horrible human being.
      And on a side note: What the hell is a former U.S. Marine doing waiting tables?? Surely she deserves better (provided she didn’t forge that receipt).

      This is BS. That’s the customer copy and you get TWO BLANK copies, one for you and one for the merchant. These are not carbonless copies. You can write whatever you want on either one. They simply could have written in that tip later and provided the copy.

      The ONLY way to verify is to review the merchant’s batch report from that day and see what amount was run through or provide the customer’s credit card (or account) statement to prove the charge.

      The other problem with this story is the time stamps match on both customer copy and merchant copy. If the customer did write in a tip as they allege (otherwise, how would their statement reflect the higher charge) how did the waitress get ANOTHER blank copy of the merchant receipt? If she ran a duplicate, the time stamps would be different.

      Show a customer credit card statement. Show a merchant batch report. These types of receipt copies aren’t enough to prove the allegations.

      At first I did not believe her—but—why would you tip on the Customer Copy–unless you are noting the tip for your own records? A customer copy proves nothing. They need the bank statement to show a debit for theamount of $111.55. Something is not adding up. NBC 4 NY should not have reported this without that evidence. I woudln’t put it past someone who wrote that message to try to disparage this waitress further.

      The “Customer Copy” could have been modified after the scandal broke by the customer because that is his receipt. Some restaurants print two bills-”Merchant Copy” and “Customer Copy”. I have a feeling the customer’s charge card company can verify if the tip was added or not then the truth will come out that they are guilty of discrimination.

      Some websites are showing a redacted copy of the customer credit card statement with the higher amount. The merchant copy should match the account statement. How would the charge be run through with the tip if the amount wasn’t written on the merchant copy? Did they yell it out as they left? “Hey, add exactly slightly less than 20% for yourself, honey!” The customer never said they left a verbal tip. They claim they wrote it in. The time stamps on both copies of the receipts would be different if the waitress ran a duplicate receipt. Alterations would be clearly visible on the merchant copy. Doesn’t add up.

      Something very fishy here. While the customers denied that they wrote that message and that that was their handwriting they never denied that that was their signature. At the very least, they signed a blank receipt . . . maybe a third party was involved?

You’ve shown that pretty well time and time again with your nauseating posts. You’re a walking ipecac.

      As for the story above, as far as I see it, the couple is completely guilty. Showing the customer’s copy of a receipt and some fake bank statement means nothing. I attacked you for telling someone to f-off for saying Queerty should be using “allegedly” where certain pieces of purported information are not known 100%. Your comment was nasty and uncalled for, and is in keeping with your trolling nature, so I called you on it. If being called a troll hurts your precious feelings, then don’t be one.

      I never knew you could “doctor” bank statements from the bank…provided they go online to their banking site, I can’t imagine getting a statement directly from the bank would be “doctored”. So until there’s something “official” from the financial institution, there’s no way of knowing who’s telling the truth.

      But if it’s Morales who’s lying, then she’s stupid. As if someone *couldn’t produce those official financial institution documents.

      But then again, this couple didn’t…yet.

      So I think I will reiterate what someone else said out here earlier. People suck.

      When I used to repair stereo amplifiers, counterfeit power transistors were and still are a big problem. After studying the differences in the print on top of the power transistor, the most common indicator was the boldness or intensity of the print. If you notice on these two receipts, the original is not as bold as the secondary one. Yet both came out of the same machine. In both cases the ink display is fully black meaning that in both cases there was plenty of ink in the printer. Click on the link within the article to see a closer image of these two side-by-side.

      The tendency of women to lie about their sexuality is well known. Women will often lie about their sexuality if it’s going to bring them a reward from men.

      For instance, it is well known that women will often claim to be interested in sex if there’s a cash payment promised to them. Women will often claim to be bisexual if it means they will receive publicity from a straight male-dominated media. Take-home message: you can’t really trust women on issues of sexuality.

      As for this “lesbian” waitress, if she lied about being a victim, it doesn’t surprise me. Women lie all the time if it’s going to bring them attention. Women love being victims, as do feminized gay men.

      The thing that concerns me the most is that GLAAD has installed a woman as its head recently.

      The problem with women is that they are sell-outs. Women ALWAYS will sell out their sexuality to straight men. Even genuine lesbians will sell out to straight guys if they need to have a baby so much.

      Look at the women who do porn. These women are renowned for performing lesbian scenes for the benefit of straight guys. These women falsely claim to represent sexuality and “sexual freedom”. What they truly represent is prostitution.

      Do we really need a gender that will prostitute its sexuality to straight guys? Think about it. Think about the damage that these female prostitutes are doing to the gay rights movement with their lies and frauds.

      We gay/bi guys deserve better than to have our movements sullied by women.

      @jeffinsydney: It says it on their copy and the credit card statement. As others have pointed out, you can print out multiple merchant copies. Again, if the larger amount only appears on the customer copy then how their credit card charged the larger amount unless the restaurant had processed it?

      @DShucking: When you print out duplicate merchant copies, the time stamp always changes. The only way she could have done that is if they requested multiple merchant copies to split the bill, then the amount before the total would have been split to the amount the family would have requested. That’s the only way the time stamp will stay the same. If she prints a duplicate later, even if by a minute, the time stamp would be different. I’ve worked with POS (point of sale) systems before, I used to sell them!

      The receipts in contention are in the waitress’ favor. She has the merchant copy and the anonymous family provided the personal customer copy that could have had the tip written in at a later time. As I stated above to @DShucking, you cannot print duplicate merchant copies without altering the time stamp.

      As a viewer of the video where the reporter shows the family’s CC statement to the restaurant manager proving their transaction with the tip included, I literally only got a brief glimpse of that. Were you able to thoroughly examine that heavily blacked out paper statement? Could you discern, as a viewer, that that was an authentic CC paper statement? I go paperless myself these days to conserve resources but I could’ve whipped that up on my computer if I wanted to easily fabricate one. You just open up your online transaction history, save it on your computer, open it again in any word software and then alter it to your liking.

      The manager was reluctant to show their copy of the charge that went through because days even weeks after the incident, he doesn’t have control over that day’s transactions anymore. It already went to accounting. He would have to take it up with that department and that in itself is a hassle but if push comes to shove and he needs to prove their innocence, he should be willing to do so.

      The family should also be willing to further go the distance to prove their innocence as well if they really are. Why remain anonymous? If they are so adamant that they did nothing wrong, they would have nothing to hide. A paper CC statement proves nothing, at least not the one that we were given a very poor glimpse of. Someone from a court of law or at least an impartial mediator needs to talk to a representative of the family’s CC company and/or the restaurant’s accounting department has to cough up their record of the transaction in dispute.

      This did not start out as a libel case since the customers were never identified by name but the family has turned it into one. They have remained anonymous but have decided to slander the waitress and the establishment she works at. So until she can exonerate herself with the help of her employer (if she is innocent), we as viewers should not CANNOT take the family’s word on this at all, especially with such slipshod evidence.

      Because liberals don’t do “Whoops, my bad. You’re right.” They attack even further and destroy. They’ll circle the wagons, as you have, around the lesbian no matter what, at all costs. You know why they would prefer to remain anonymous.

      @East_Dane:

      I agree with you, but your knowledge of credit card batch processing is faulty. The merchant certainly can print a detail of the batch from his terminal and prove what was entered. If its a local place, nothing is sent to accounting and even if it is a chain, they probably send the merchant copies once per week or once per month to their home office. The merchant copy, with signature, is kept on file to provide proof of the charge and to fight chargebacks. Also, although I find it unlikely, the waitress could have printed a duplicate receipt as long as she planned it well and did it in the exact same minute as the original receipt. Again, I find that unlikely. Also, in my experience, duplicate receipts usually print with “reprint” or “duplicate” to avoid confusion when accounting for that days receipts when doing a batch. Again, I think it’s inconclusive and I would prefer to wait for the merchant to review this and release a statement before rendering judgment.

      Once the news people verify with the bank that $111 was charged (which they will) it will be a question of who in management facilitated this fraud because management had to know it charged $111 and not $93. When you track that $18 you will find the culprit. Way to set us back. ‘The Boy who cried Wolf’ is now ‘The Dike who cried Hate’. Thanks scumbags. Shame on you. Shame! Shame! Shame!

      @HirsuteOne: I also agree with you on all your points. The merchant is supposed to keep the signed copy for their records. Unless the waitress received authorization from her manager to post that copy on that Facebook page. When this story was first posted, it seemed like they had no issues with it going public and they kept the customer’s name and CC# confidential.

      12 or 13 days passed since the story was first aired before the customers came forward with their grievance and after the conclusion of a business week, all merchant copies and transaction records are sent to their accounting office as it should be. It would not have been feasible for a manager to backtrack and go back that far in their transaction history from just the POS systems in the restaurant.

      About her making duplicate copies of the merchant receipts at the exact same time as when printing out the original, that is possible but that would have meant premeditated planning on her part and intentionally targeting that particular family before they had even left the restaurant.

      This case will easily be resolved once the restaurant’s copy matches the family’s CC copy amount. Hope in Dayna’s case, she is innocent otherwise she turned a previous human interest story falling right around the positive holiday season and turned it into her own avaricious agenda. If the family is again at fault, no biggie. They’re just doubled down in their bigotry. It happens all the time.

      That’s my one impediment as well. Although the waitress has been thoroughly crucified on other blogs, I find it incredibly unlikely that she planned this with such precision as to print duplicate receipts back to back and get it done in the same minute so the time stamps wouldn’t change.

      This restaurant, is it a local place? It’s not a chain? Or is it?

      The restaurant is being savaged by Yelpers who have never even patronized the establishment all day today and I’m sure it will continue. They have only been open for a few months and are still working out the kinks but prior to today, the reviews were satisfactory to good. The proprietors of this place have to do something to rectify this situation without any further delay or their restaurant will tank and never be able to recover.

      No matter what the truth is, Dayna Morales has already been crucified and now the restaurant is going down with her. I actually utilize Yelp quite often in trying new establishments and have never seen such a rapid and anger-fueled boycott of a place such as this ever on the site.

      If Dayna Morales concocted this entire story and the restaurant was in collusion with her, it’s an expected if not completely deserved backlash but if not, they need to exonerate themselves as quickly as possible. Sad to see a new business go down in flames because of one rotten apple in the barrel.

      If it’s the family that is truly the devious party, karmic retribution is a very real thing.

      You have to look really closely at the two receipts and enlargen them with a photo viewer, but when you do that you can see the two receipts have different handwriting for the numbers, and if you look at the last two numbers the .55 they are very different in handwriting, the very last five on the first receipt it long while on the second one it has a curve, both fives on the cusotmer copy look like SS. One of them is not correct. Which one is the question, with today’s technology it is very easy to photoshop a new receipt. The comes the signature and the writing on the first receipt, look at the cursive lettering, those E’s are almost identical in both the signaure and the writing and so is the r. This one may be difficult to prove who done it without further analysis.

      All that matters is the amount of the charge the restaurant submitted to Visa. And they already have that information (takes about 20 seconds to pull up) They’re probably in panic mode, knowing that whatever they say one side is going to accuse them of a coverup, conspiracy, etc. In fact, at this point it’s the restaurant owners I’m kind of feeling sorry for; nobody’s accusing THEM of anything, but since this happened their Yelp rating is in free-fall from an inundation of negative “reviews” (actually, diatribes from people who’ve probably never even eaten there)and God knows how many phone calls, emails, etc they’re getting.

      UPDATE:
      Not only did the customers provide proof of the charge, but Morales’s former coworkers say she lied about the extent of damage her house incurred during hurricane Sandy to gain sympathy (she falsely claimed a boat was in her living room), and also told coworkers the reason she’d shaved her head was due to brain cancer, which she never had.

      And boom! just like that, any sympathy I had turns to disdain and disgust. If it were mental illness I could forgive, but these are just blatant, childish demands for attention. Out she goes.

We have to remember, just because someone plays the “gay card” or any other minority card, not to be knee jerk about it. We must also be the first to denounce it if proven to be fraudulent. We have too many legitimate injustices to fight without becoming hysterical over every viral slight on the internet no matter how much we want to believe them. This only damages our credibility and this server should be ashamed and called out. Not to mention this couple deserves an apology (I know they concealed their identities, but with the comments I’ve read here and many other sites, can you blame them?)
