A Mississippi Olive Garden server was fired after lying about having cancer to get bigger tips, according to WREG
One customer became suspicious of the server's phony illness when he was overheard bragging to another employee about getting a $100 tip.
News of the waiter quickly spread via social media, and Olive Garden promptly fired the employee after several complaints.
The employee had previously been arrested for shoplifting and conspiracy to unlawfully possess a motor vehicle before becoming a server at the restaurant chain in February.
