A server employed by a Texas steakhouse recently claimed that patrons of the restaurant opted to forego giving him a tip and leaving a racially motivated hate note on his receipt has admitted to fabricating the entire incident.
Khalil Cavil, a server at the Saltgrass Steakhouse posted a photo of a receipt from recent paying customers claiming they stated “we don’t tip terrorists” on social media. The post quickly went viral, drumming up all sorts of sympathy for the young man.
According to management, Cavil has confessed to making the whole thing up. This dude severely lacks good character.
Cavil claimed that the receipt, which showed that the customer gave no tip on a bill totaling $108.73, was proof that “this racism, and this hatred still exists,” USA Today reported.
The restaurant initially told the customer that they were banned from returning, but an internal investigation revealed that the customer did not write the note – the employee did.Trending:
“After further investigation, we have learned that our employee fabricated the entire story,” Terry Turney, COO of Saltgrass told USA TODAY. “The customer has been contacted and invited back to our restaurant to dine on us. Racism of any form is intolerable, and we will always act swiftly should it occur in any of our establishments. Falsely accusing someone of racism is equally disturbing.”
In an interview with the Odessa American, Cavil admitted to concocting the story.Advertisement - story continues below
“I’m sorry,” Cavil said. “I deeply made a huge, big mistake. And I’m in the process of getting the help that I need.”
Sorry to break it to Mr. Cavil, but he did not, in fact, make a big mistake. A mistake is missing a step and tumbling down a flight of stairs. A mistake is ignorantly investing your entire retirement fund in a pyramid scheme. That’s a mistake.
Purposefully fabricating an incident of racism in order to get attention from strangers online is a violation of the Ninth Commandment, you know, the whole “you shall not bear false witness against your neighbor” bit God plastered on stone as part of the Ten Commandments.
Part of the proper application of that commandment is realizing it has a lot to do with preserving the reputation of your neighbor and his or her good name. While the identity of the customers were never revealed, Cavil still damaged their reputation, even if only among their closest friends and relatives. This is truly despicable.
Hopefully this guy surrenders his heart to Jesus Christ and gets the help he needs to never repeat this behavior again.
