restaurant receipt identified customers as "Fat Girls"

Rude Waiter Calls Customers ‘Fat Girls’ on Restaurant Bill but It Gets Worse

http://cdn.cstatic.net/g/500x/

Fat GirlsOh, this is bad. Really bad. Three women went out for a night on the town in Stockton, California, last week and just wanted to have some food and fun. At the Cameo Club Casino's restaurant, they each ordered a tri-tip with fries and a soda, but when the bill came, they were floored -- and not because of the price.

There printed at the top was "Fat Girls." According to ABC News 10, one of the women, Christine Duran, saw it and couldn't believe her eyes. When she told her friends, they thought she was joking at first, but when she showed it to them, they were understandably shocked and outraged. "I was like, 'Oh, heck no,'" Isabel Robles told the station.

So they called the server over, and that's when things went from bad to worse.

He denied having anything to do with it and said some worker named "Jeff" must have put it in the system that way to keep track of their bill. A manager didn't make things any better, and Duran told ABC News he "had like a smirk on his face, like it was funny but trying not to laugh." For their trouble he offered them a 25 percent discount.

A 25 percent discount?! Talk about adding insult to injury. He finally bumped it up to 50 percent, but the women chose their dignity instead and refused his offers. Good for them. First of all this should have NEVER happened. It was rude, childish, and so many other deplorable things, but since it did, that manager should have bent over backwards to try and make things better ... like comping their entire freaking bill for starters.

The restaurant has since issued an apology, and "Jeff" has been suspended for the time being, and that's great, but the damage has been done. These ladies are justifiably still reeling from such cruel behavior. Robles said, "It's not funny. I can just see it over and over again, and I still can't believe it. They labeled us 'fat girls.' It's just something we got to deal with."

4. I have to wonder how rotund these girls are..

I mean people who are truly fat usually know they are fat, and while it would be hurtful to be characterized in this way, it happens to fat people every day. If however they are average build for their age and do not consider themselves particularly overweight, this could have more impact..IMHO

All that said, it is unacceptable for servers to be disrespectful to customers, even outside of the person's presence. I will not tolerate any such thing in my restaurant and every staff member knows it..everyone gets one warning on this and they don't get a second.

5. from pic, and other article, they are a bit chubby. that's not the point.

if A customer has a big nose, it it ok to write "big nose" on the receipt that they will see?

7. Seems I've answered

the question in the post you are responding to. That said, I looked at the video and the feigned incredulity that they are claiming is transparent.
