After posting a receipt online displaying Peyton Manning's generous tip, Angus Barn server Jon has been released into free-agency.
Waiter gets fired for posting pic of Peyton’s generous tip3/8/2012
A waiter at a restaurant in Raleigh, N.C., has something in common with Peyton Manning: They're both currently out of work. The waiter, identified on the receipt as Jon, posted a picture of a receipt that shows an awesomely generous tip left by Manning at the Angus Barn. It turns out the waiter violated company policy, and owner and operator Van Eure has fired him, according to the Triangle Business Journal. The restaurant said it often serves celebrities, and it has a strict policy that their private dining experiences stay private. The receipt showed Manning had added an additional $200 tip to the $739 bill, which already included an 18 percent gratuity.
