We live in a state unfortunately known for stingy tipping. Remember the incident in 2008 when a server at Ghidotti's was accused of inflating tip amounts?  No one condoned the server's solution, but a lot of people related to the problem.

We also live in a state where a big percentage of the population faithfully tithes ten percent to their church.

The minimum wage in Utah is $7.25 an hour. But employers can pay tipped employees as little as $2.13 an hour, as long as the employee's tips bring the total hourly wage earned up to the state minimum.

So the Applebee's incident recently gone viral online, in which a pastor left a snarky note about giving to God and church instead of tipping her server, might be expected to raise some eyebrows around here.

I'm curious: Salt Lake servers, restaurateurs, diners and tithers. What's your reaction to this story? What do you think is the right percentage to tip a server? Greater or less than you give to God?
