"The worst for some reason were the Visible Christians - like the 10-person table, all jolly and sanctified after Sunday night service, who run me endlessly and then leave me $ 1 (tip) on a $ 92 bill. Or the guy with the crucifixion t-shirt (Someone To Look Up To) who complains that his baked potato is too hard and his iced tea too icy (I cheerfully fix both) and leaves no tip at all. As a general rule, people wearing crosses or WWJD buttons look at us disapprovingly no matter what we do, as if they were confusing waitressing with Mary Magdalene's original profession. "

From "Nickel and Dimed - On (Not) Getting by in America" by Barbara Ehrenreich.
