No tacos in Heaven?


I doubt it’s possible to come up with a much stronger restaurant review than “I went there twice in the week before I was going to be Raptured.”

A woman came to our restaurant the other day with a friend, she was nice but kept trying to proselytize to me. She tipped $300 on a $40 bill and wrote on the receipt “in case you don’t rise on the 8th.” [April 8th was the day of the total eclipse] I’ve heard the same thing from some of my family members, these people genuinely think they’re going to rise into heaven on April 8th. . . .

I’m a server at a taco restaurant in Florida. Last weekend, we had a woman come in that tipped me $300 on a $40 bill. I made a post about this here.

As I was getting into work, I saw her at a table with a guy (presumably her bf or husband) and she was being served by one of my coworkers. He knew she was the $300 tipper but didn’t give her any special treatment. According to my coworker, she kept asking if he was Christian, to which he said no, and then she started talking about how awful it’ll be after the Rapture (which she thinks is on April 8th, this Monday) for sinners left on Earth. My coworker said that he thinks he’ll do fine (he was kinda vying for the tip so he didn’t want to contradict her belief). According to him, he took their orders as normal, served them, and the woman tipped him $777 and said that he’ll need it after.

My coworker then immediately ran to get me (because of my previous experience with her) and the manager, not wanting to take money from this delusional woman. Our manager then asked the woman if she intended to make that tip and she said “of course, it’s with the Lord’s numbers” and then left. Our manager refused to refund the payment both because she left and because she verbally confirmed that was her intended tip.

Friday is our payday so both my coworker and me will be getting our tips from her today, and if she comes back April 9th, she probably won’t be able to get the money back, but I honestly feel bad for her.

See if you can guess where this story is going. (Key terms: Florida, Rapture, tacos)

So, last weekend at the restaurant I work at, a woman tipped me $300, convinced that the rapture was imminent on April 8th. Here’s where it gets even more bizarre. A few days later, she returns and tips my coworker a whopping $777.

Fast forward to today, and she’s back again, adamant that her tips were somehow fraudulent and that we tampered with them. Her claims of fraud are literally impossible, we bring the card reader to the table, and it’s the guest who decides the tip amount by either pressing a preset option or entering a custom one before hitting pay. That’s exactly what she did. So, it’s physically impossible for us to manipulate the tip amounts.

Both my coworker and I have already received our tips with our paychecks, and we obviously have to pay income tax on them. Returning the money to her at this point is literally impossible since we don’t actually have all the money.

Now if I walked into a restaurant, strung out from the road, and gave the servers more than a thousand dollars in tips because I believed space aliens were about to transport me to the planet Zod, where they don’t have money (or tacos apparently) I would be considered an obvious lunatic. But in this case the person in question is considered to be “part of the evangelical base” that could well re-elect Donald Trump president less than seven months from now.

It really makes you think . . . about tacos at least.
