Woman Claims Jesus Will Pay Buffet Bill

Woman Claims Jesus Will Pay Buffet Bill

The Bible tells us that Jesus can raise the dead, but apparently deadbeats are on their own.


April Lee Yates

April Lee Yates, 51, enjoyed a heavenly meal at a Myrtle Beach, S.C., buffet, but refused to pay her tab – saying that Jesus would take care of the $26 bill for her.

However, the Son of God did not make an appearance. Even if he had, Jesus was not known to carry and a wallet – and his robe has no pockets in it.

After spending about four hours at Bennett’s Calabash Seafood Buffet Restaurant, Yates began a disturbance with other customers. The restaurant staff asked her to pay her bill and leave, but she said she had no money.

Like hundreds of millions of people over the past 2,000 years, Yates waited for Jesus to appear. However, Jesus did not grace her presence. It seems he doesn’t always take the wheel, or pick up the tab.

The police did appear.

When they asked her how she planned to pay for her last supper – knowing she had no money – Yates said someone else would pay for her meal. Who, the police asked?

“Jesus,” Yates replied.

She was not saved by that answer. Yates was arrested and charged with defrauding the restaurant.

What is it with people thinking that Jesus is their Big Sugar Daddy in the Sky?

Last October, in Oklahoma, Kristi Rhines refused to pay her check at El Chico’s, telling police that her husband – Jesus Christ – would pick up the tab for several alcoholic drinks.

In what some might see as another miracle, Jesus turned the woman’s excuse into whine.
