Eddy Cabrera, a waiter at Chelly’s Cafe in Kansas City, Missouri got something other than a tip from his customers. After the group treated Cabrera badly, they left him this mean, anti-gay note instead,
“Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve!”
Cabrera, who was raised in Guatemala, didn’t understand the message at first until a friend explained it to him. His friend, Jonathon Antle, who posted a photo of the note on Facebook that Cabrera “almost started crying” when he understood what the group had written. Angle said,
“This is his livelihood, and they treated him like dirt the entire time. They just took food off of his ’table’ instead of treating him with basic human decency.
What they wrote is not a Bible verse, although I know ’If you do not love, you do not know God, because God is love’ sure as hell is.
I was told last week by a family member that I was imagining things when it came to hate toward the LGBT community from conservative Christianity and that I was greatly exaggerating the shit I lived through growing up. I wasn’t.”
As supportive comments poured in via social media, Cabrera wrote in response,
“Thank you to everyone. Today was one of those days when everything [seems to go wrong]. All I can say is God bless all of you.”
After the story blew up, some internet sleuths tracked down Tonisha Flowers, the woman who signed the credit card slip. Antle says she has apologized to Cabrera, saying it was someone else who wrote the note…
And some kind soul dropped by a tip and a note (below) and Cabrera wrote this on Facebook,
“Thank you all for stop[ping] by and do[ing] this. For me. It means alot… Thank you.“
See, not everyone is a hateful creep.
