US restaurant offers 15 percent off for praying before meal
A North Carolina restaurant offers a 15 percent off to customers that display gratitude for their meal with a prayer.
According to the Fox News, Mary's Gourmet Diner in Winston-Salem has been giving this discount for the past four years, the Washington Times reported.
The restaurant owner, Mary Haglund asserted that the discount was "not a policy", but a gift given to those who took the time to appreciate their food and was seen having a moment.
Haglund added that she never took that for granted and it warmed her heart to see people with an attitude of gratitude for living in a country with an abundance of beautiful food, which was not religious but "spiritual".
One customer, who visited the restaurant during a business trip, asserted that she and her colleagues prayed over their meal and the waitress came over at the end of the meal to inform them about the 15 percent discount they got for praying.
