Just in case you were actually enjoying your day and walking around thinking that the world is a decent place and people treat each other reasonably, here's a story out of Bridgewater, New Jersey that is all too familiar and, astonishingly, still happening everywhere even though is 2013.

Dayna M. is a former Marine who serves tables at the Gallop Asian Bistro in Bridgewater. She recently waited on a family of four and things didn't go so well.

Not only was it a family with two kids, but as I introduce myself and tell them my name is Dayna - the mom proceeds to look at me and say "oh I thought you were gonna say your name is Dan. You sure surprised us!"

Ugh. Unfortunately, the way the family finished its meal won't surprise you. In lieu of a tip on their $93.55 bill, the woman left a note explaining that she couldn't tip because she doesn't agree with Dayna's "lifestyle."

Dayna's post has been shared more than 5,000 times and she's received a flood of messages of support and encouragement. Which, I guess, is the same as a $20 tip. [Have a Gay Day, h/t Gawker]
