  Waffle House waitress loses job after firing gun during robbery A Georgia Waffle House waitress says she was fired for discharging her gun at three fleeing robbers. Heather (Shorty) Burkinshaw-Stanley said she was only trying to defend herself and her co-workers, The Newnan Times-Herald reported Sunday.“I was in fear for my life, my co-workers’ lives, and I did what I thought was right,” she told the paper.Three men ate at Burkinshaw-Stanley’s Waffle House early Thursday. Instead of paying for their meal, the men gave the cashier a note threatening to shoot everyone if their demand for money from the register wasn’t met, the paper reported.

Waitress Kelly Carter said a couple had written on the receipt: "Great service don ' t tip black people ." They don ’ t write notes , they just do not give a gratuity . I would say less than one in 10 blacks might tip ( whites ) , for physical services rendered , and then usually just a buck .

Customers at a restaurant in Virginia left their black waitress a racist note instead of a tip, local media report.

Kelly Carter says a couple at the diner in Ashburn had written on the receipt: "Great service don't tip black people."

But the waitress said she would gladly serve the pair again, adding "one hateful remark cannot stop me".

Tipping is customary in the US, where restaurant servers often earn less than the minimum wage, with tips supposed to make up the difference in pay.

Ms Carter told local media that one of the diners had even complimented the breakfast she served them on Saturday.

She said she would recognise them if they returned to Anita's New Mexico Style Cafe.

"My arms are still opened to him," she said, offering to serve them again.

"That's him, not me," she said during her morning shift, adding that "he only hurt himself. He only makes me stronger."

The white couple, who appeared to be in their mid-20s, left after spending $30.52 (£25) on food.

Restaurant owner Tommy Tellez told local media_ "I was appalled, though it's kind of in line with the political landscape, unfortunately."

People have been dropping by the restaurant to give Ms Carter cash, Mr Tellez said, and a YouCaring campaign has raised over $300 (£245) for her.

Ms Carter says she hopes to see the couple again.

"Just me serving them will let them know they did not get the best of me. And I truly mean that."
