Whatever You Do, Don’t Embarrass Alois Bell!

It’s not a good idea to mess with pastor Alois Bell.

After dining at Applebee’s last Friday with several members of her congregation from the Truth in the World Deliverance Ministries, pastor Bell left quite the sanctimonious note on her receipt for her server. Apparently she was upset over the mandatory 18% gratuity for large groups. She could have recognized the fact that her server is grossly under paid, and just busted her ass waiting on a group of around 20 people. Instead, she deducted the tip from the bill and declared that “I give god 10%, why do you get 18?”

The server, Chelsea Welch, thought this was tight assed funny, and posted it on her Reddit account. From there it went viral. Needless to say, pastor Bell was embarrassed as fuck concerned about her appearance as a tight wad. Feeling horrible about what happened, pastor Bell did the only thing she could do to make amends: call Applebee’s and get Ms. Welch fired.

That’s quite the dick move pastor Alois Bell from the Truth in the World Deliverance Ministries in St. Louis, Missouri. You should be ashamed of yourself. I would not be surprised if a lot of people called your church at 314-703-1238, to let you know how disappointed they are with your actions.

    The server, Chelsea Welch, thought this was tight assed funny, and posted it on her Reddit account.

    Check this out:

    It was a good thing Peyton Manning left such a nice tip for his server at the Angus Barn because it was one of the last the server would ever receive at the Raleigh, N.C., steakhouse.

    According to the Triangle Business Journal, a server at the restaurant was fired after posting a photograph of the generous tip Manning left on a $625 bill. The restaurant included its own 18 percent gratuity, bringing the tab to about $739, and Manning added another $200 on top — roughly -a 50 percent tip. “Jon” was terminated by restaurant owner Van Eure for violating the restaurant’s privacy policy.

    Genesis [heh heh] was different but the result the same.

      In both instances, that has to be a tough pill to swallow. What seemed harmless at the time turns out to be pretty harsh in the long run. I don’t necessarily agree with posting the bill in either case, but to fire them is a little over the top.

        Perhaps. But it should prove that in both cases, great tip and none, the server was fired.

      CT, it was $34.93 for the pastors part of the bill. They all had separate checks and but there was over 6 people. I believe about 20 was at the table.

        You are correct MT. In fact, the pastor demanded that the bill be broken up in an effort to skate around the gratuity.

    It’s shameful to not provide for the server that did their job. Alois is not a nice person and should not be representing God, or Christians as a whole. If she is indeed that bitter perhaps she should be fired as well.. Compassion is what we should feel for people that make less money than us and have to stand on their feet all day taking insults from angry people that are unhappy in their personal lives. Shame on Alois… hopefully we can forgive her and find compassion for her greedy self-centered actions.

        I looked at that site, it doesn’t at all look like them, but rather someone using that name and bandwidth to spread out the word on what happened. I don’t think the church itself would actually have so much negative content about their own pastor.

        I’m also looking for an email address to send a note over, and haven’t found any of it. They lso have removed their facebook page. I’m relatively sure the pastor owns the church itself. It’s a storefront and has about 10 members and one pastor according to Smoking Gun

    Her three books are no longer being sold at lulu.com, her page on the black preaching network has been removed, and pretty much the whole of her church’s website taken down. I can imagine that the radio show she was apparently preaching on (according to her bio which is now gone) won’t want her. Maybe she’ll be removed as pastor as well. We can only hope she gets her just desserts (not that she’d tip for them)

    The “pastor” obviously by these comments did more for the cause of Satan than for God. And if “pastor” Bell really knew what the bible said, she wouldn’t be a pastor. The bible clearly says that a pastor is to be the HUSBAND of one wife, Since this “pastor” is a female, she can not be the HUSBAND of one wife. Her !0% to God based on her salary, I hope is bigger than the 18% of the total check.
    I don’t think the waitress should have fired, but I don’t think she should have posted the bill online either.

    Sent to her church:

    Your “pastor” is Alois Bell. I want you to read what I have sent Applebee’s in regards to this charlatan you call a pastor

    Your company has fired Chelsea Welch for posting a reciept a pastor wrote on claiming she pays god 10% why does she get 18? She gets 18 because its industry standard. Not just Applebeees does that, all resturants do for parties of 8 or more. Apparently the pastor doesnt get out much. She expected privacy? She wrote on a reciept. She wanted it to be seen. She didnt want privacy she wanted attention. When she got it and it “ruined” her reputation this so called woman of god got upset. She only got upset because she was held to task for her words. There is no policy against what Chelsea did. Chelsea should be applauded for calling out the religous freaks on their hypocisy. Are’nt you supposed to help those lower than you on the economic ladder? I think a waitress qualifies for that for most people. I dont think an imaginary bearded being in the sky needs money like Ms. Welch does. Thats ignoring the fact that the pastor is employed by the church, meaning her paycheck comes from the tithing basket. She’s actually not giving god anything monetary, it all relines her pocket. Please do the right thing and reinstate Chelsea Welch as an employee.

    Now, I also have a hypothetical question for you. Where was the rest of the congregation when she wrote this? Did they not try and remind her of the word of God and what she was doing was wrong? Has she never worked for 2.55 an hour? You should fire her from her post as pastor and representative of your church and let her see what real work looks like.

    Pastor Alois Bell,

    You should be ashamed of yourself for your despicable treatment of that poor girl who used to work at Applebee’s, AND of your server. Was it not enough to stiff a hard-working employee who makes BELOW minimum wage? And then you had the audacity to demand that her co-worker be fired for outing you as a sanctimonious tightwad! How dare you call yourself a follower of Jesus! Do you think He would treat people like that? If you preach anything about kindness, charity, loving your neighbor or anything of the sort, then you are an enormous hypocrite (in more ways than one). If you care about the fate of your soul, then you will do the right thing and try to right the wrong you have committed against this poor girl and her coworker. And that doesn’t mean making a hollow, forced apology – it means making amends to the person you have harmed. If I were you, I would think long and hard about the way I treat people & what it says about me as a person.

    Good day,
    Alizia

    The issue is as it turns out. It’s her church. So when she talks about giving god 10% . What she really means is she donates 10% to her own church, which funds her salary, which then by the way allows her to write off any expenses she has. So that self righteous 10% she gives to god, actually goes right into her wallet, and allows her to stiff working people AND the IRS, meaning she’s also stiffing her fellow Americans who are paying their part and not using a fake sky zombie excuse to get out of paying her fair share .

    I also heard scuttlebutt , that her fill time gig is as a claims processor at an insurance company. Not sure if that’s true, but it sure makes sense. She reminds me of exactly the type of hostile self important person who gets filled with petty authority. I deal with anytime I have to deal with an insurance claim , the only other thing that would make more sense is if she worked at the department of moter vehicles.
