A waiter in Kansas City in Missouri got a $0 tip – and, to add insult to injury, the table left him a homophobic note too.
Eddy Cabrera was working at Chelly’s Cafe on Saturday. He was serving a particularly nosy table who were ‘being rude to him the entire time’, according to a friend dining there as well.
Then they left him this note:
Having grown up in Guatemala he didn’t understand the meaning, though he was upset about not getting a tip. His friend Jonathon Antle explained it to him, and said Cabrera ‘almost started crying’ when he found out what it meant.
Antle says the three diners don’t understand the Bible. ‘This is his livelihood, and they treated him like dirt the entire time. They just took food off of his “table” instead of treating him with basic human decency.
‘What they wrote is not a Bible verse, although I know “if you do not love, you do not know God, because God is love” sure as hell is.’
He reflects: ‘I was told last week by a family member that I was imagining things when it came to hate toward the LGBT community from conservative Christianity and that I was greatly exaggerating the shit I lived through growing up. I wasn’t.’
Cabrera has responded to the outpouring of support from people concerned with the way he was treated. ‘Thank you to everyone. Today was one of those days when everything [seems to go wrong].
‘All I can say is God bless all of you.’
A woman who was at the table has since apologized to Cabrera via text.
‘I just truly apologize for the events that went into play today, from the bottom of my heart: I am sorry.
‘My daughter’s Godfather is a homosexual, I would always support the LGBT community ’til the day I die,’ she said.
