A server for The Angus Barn in Raleigh, N.C. has been fired after posting a receipt signed by Peyton Manning online.

The tip showed that Manning left a $200 tip on a $739.58 bill that already included an 18 percent gratuity. Everything included, Manning paid about a 50 percent tip, but The Angus Barn isn't happy about the publicity.

This goes against every policy we have, Van Eure, the owner and operation of the restaurant, told the Triangle Business Journal. It's just horrible.

The Triangle Business Journal ntoed that The Angus Barn has a long history of serving celebrities major and minor, and it's a strict policy of the restaurant that their private dining experiences stay private. Eure plans to personally call Manning and apologize.

While Eure might feel it's a big enough deal to personally call Manning, he's probably got a bit more important things on his mind these days than whether some young server posted his receipt online.

Manning was released by the Indianapolis Colts on Wednesday after 14 years with the organization. The former Super Bowl MVP got emotional during a press conference with Colts owner Jim Irsay and now must come to the realization that he'll be playing football for a different city and team next year.

12 teams have already contacted Manning's representatives about acquiring the free agent, but the Seattle Seahawks, Arizona Cardinals, Miami Dolphins, and Washington Redskins are the believed frontrunners to land his services for next year.
