Tip of the Pastor

I saw this story on Yahoo (not sure how long the link will live for) the other day and was repulsed.

Apparently, a "Pastor" was appalled at the automatic addition of an 18% tip, which the waitress claims was "automatically added as a result of being part of a larger check and a party of 20". The comment left on the tip by the pastor refers to a "tithe", offering God 10% of his money and that he didn't feel the waitress deserved more than God.
I want to make it clear to those who don't know, I happen to be a Christian. However, it grates at me to see things like this. If the guy didn't want to leave a tip, he should just have not left one - there need not be an explanation and certainly, no need to bring God into it. What the heck does God have to do with this situation at all? Nothing!
