Good News: Restaurant Gives 15% Discount for Prayer

Patrons of Mary’s Gourmet Diner have found that gratitude prior to a meal, can cause another moment of thanks when they receive their bills! Jordan Smith recently said grace before his meal at the Winston-Salem, N.C. restaurant and when the bill came, he found the subtotal to be odd. His waitress was there to explain that they had given him a 15% discount for praying! Mary’s Gourmet Diner has an official policy of giving diners a special savings if they “pray publicly” before chowing down. The restaurant has reportedly offered this discount for four years. While some believe this discount to be unfair, restaurant owner Mary Haglund  claimed, “It’s about the whole idea of gratitude. It’s not a religious thing, it’s a spiritual thing.” Click here for more on this restaurant that loves prayer!
