1. Applebee's: Rehire Chelsea & We'll Eat At Your Restaurant At Least Once In 2013

Earlier this week, a receipt posted to Reddit went viral. The receipt showed a zero tip, along with an explanation from the customer, who identified herself as a pastor: "I give God 10%, why do you get 18."

The waitress who posted it, Chelsea, has since been fired from her employer, Applebee's, after the pastor complained.

We want Applebee's to do the right thing here and rehire Chelsea. This was clearly a good-natured joke at the expense of someone who showed incredibly poor regard for her fellow man/woman, especially for a pastor.

Moreover, we believe Applebee's wants to do the right thing. We don't fault them for erring on the side of an angry customer, but a closer look at the matter reveals that this particular angry customer was in the wrong. Applebee's should correct the error and show that it stands up for its employees who are doing their jobs.

So, if Applebee's rehires Chelsea, we at HuffPost Comedy, and the below signed, promise to eat at our local Applebee's restaurant at least once in 2013. Maybe we'll even order a Mucho Margarita™. We hear they're great.

2. Prevent further expansion of Redhill Refuse Tip

Biffa Waste Services, who operate the Redhill Refuse tip have applied to Surrey County Council to further expand its waste operations at Cormongers Lane site in Redhill to process up to 29,000 tonnes of contaminated soil – including hazardous waste.

3. Save St Annes Tip (Everest Road Household Waste Recycling Centre in St Annes)

The St Annes recycling centre is the 5th. most popular recycle site in Lancashire (out of 23 sites spread across Lancashire)

Last year you helped to recycle/reuse 75.86% of the rubbish brought into this centre - please help fight its planned closure.

If the centre closes then potentially fly tipping council increase and recycling rates could go down.)

The closure proposals are part of a county-wide review of household waste recycling centres by Lancashire County Council, which claim the county has more tips compared to the population than any other area in the country.

Fears have been raised that fly-tipping could increase if the closure, labelled a "cost-cutting measure" by protesters, goes ahead.


It has been too long that employers have been using tip cups to subsidize employees' wages.
