Customers Called 'Fat Girls' on Restaurant Bill
yahoo ^ | 12.10.2012 | abc

Posted on 12/10/2012 1:26:15 AM PST by Morgana

The dinner bill for three friends at Chilly D's Restaurant stung, but it wasn't the price - printed on the top of the receipt were the words "Fat Girls".

"I got the bill, I was looking at bill [and] I was like, 'Why does this receipt say 'fat girls?'" customer Christine Duran said.

The friends had dined out at the Stockton, Calif., restaurant, which is a part of the Cameo Casino Restaurant, on Thursday. The bill lists charges for three tri-tips with fries and three sodas, for a total of $25.50. A bartender named Jeff had apparently typed in "Fat Girls" to keep track of their bill.

When Duran asked a manager for an explanation, he "had like a smirk on his face, like it was funny but trying not to laugh," she said.

Before you all start it with the fat jokes remember this, they are paying customers and in this economy (need I say more?)

Don't cut off the hand that feeds you. (no pun intended)

This thread is worthless without pictures (to see who is right!)

BTW, if they had been called "Phat Gurlz", would it have been okay?

“BTW, if they had been called “Phat Gurlz”, would it have been okay? “

Actually the person who is has the final say on that is Laz.

“would Laz call them ‘Phat’”?

Who reads their receipts this closely? I wonder how many times I’ve been insulted and don’t know it. There was a similar story last year or so.

Oh, please. Haven`t we fattened lawyers enough in this society? How about a written apology instead?

Why should they sue? Particularly if they were, indeed, fat? What the restaurant did was very stupid, but it was not a legal offense.

What if the bill instead was inscribed “low information voter”? Wouldn’t that have been far worse? After all, a fat person can always diet.........

Christine Duran, Christina Huerta and Isabel Robles say their enjoyable meal at Chilly D’s Sports Lounge in Stockton, Calif., ended painfully Thursday when a waiter plopped down the offensive receipt on their table.

Oh yes, me too! I hope a trail lawyer who gives big buck contributions to the DNC takes up their case and wins a HUGE settlement from the restaurant, and it is forced to raise prices on their customers to pay for the settlement, but then goes out of business eventually anyway. Then, I hope that President Obama calls the group of women from Air Force One while the cameras are rolling, and arranges a meeting where he hugs each of them before the cameras!

Then, wouldn't it be great if Moochelle Obama took up the case, saying that restaurants like this are to "blame" for people becoming overweight, and lobbies Congress to pass new laws. It would fantastic if Nancy Pelosi took up the cause, and drafted the "National Civil Rights for Plus Sized Womyn's Act of 2013." The new "law" would dictate that all restaurants, farmers, and food distributors must enact comprehensive programs to "combat discrimination of the weight-challenged" and must offer subsidized gym memberships and help established Plus Sized clothing stores in the inner city, which are "Clothing Deserts" for many low income Americans who are overweight and who cannot find decent Large Clothing.

You know what else would be great?! Since all the women have Hispanic sir names, I reckon there was some god awful Discrimination going on here that was racial! I do. I hope Eric Holder at the Just-Us Dept files Federal Civil Rights charges against the restaurant owner, the existing wait staff, and the cooks.

Oh I’m sure they know they are fat, but why would the bartender be rude to a paying customer? In stead of looking at them as “fat chicks” he should look at them as “job security”.

To quote a line from a Monty Python movie: “Well, you HAVE got a very big nose!”

Sheesh. If they are offended, they should just not patronize the restaurant anymore, and tell people they know not to. Or put on sandwich boards and walk around outside the restaurant.

That will kill the customer base for sure.

The geometry doesn’t favor sandwich boards. Only low-flying planes could read them if those Large Ladies wore them. Maybe they could hire some skinny guy to carry them for them.

Jeff the bartender should have written down the “horizontally developed” girls instead of fat girls.

Get a mirror.

Seriously, the "right" not to be offended has metastasized everywhere. In a reasonable society 1) The restaurant would lose future business from the fat girls, 2) the fat girls would be embarrassed enough to STFU, and 3) the rest of us could go about our business.

But, no-ooo. Now we all have to hear about it.

I’d also recommend: If the customers are annoying, don’t scribble “Naggers” at the top of the bill.

Or if expecting a small tip, don't inscribe the bill with the words "the niggardly."

I'm not so sure. There are many people who would really enjoy eating at a restaurant with no fat people in it. Fat is not seen as visually attractive by many people and the clientel of a place adds to (or subtracts from) it's general atmosphere.

There's a lot of "no fat chicks" stickers out there.

Yeah, I want to live in a country where you can sue for every insult. They have a constitutional right to never have their feelings hurt. No one better ever mention that someone is fat, ever again. Even if they are. Just keep your mouth shut, tiptoe around, don't say a word or you'll OFFEND someone.

Notice they so have their cell phones on the table. Probably texting instead of having normal speaking conversations with people. This is typical of the modern woman. No woman can be without her cell phone in front of her.

The dining experience went from bad to worse when the restaurant demanded they still pay the bill,...

Did they still eat the food? Then, they should still pay the bill.

Why is it automatically expected that they get out of paying the bill because someone pointed out that they are fat?

My dad, who is 66 years old, made a similar observation to yours yesterday. Things were a lot different then. I agree with him about how people are now days. People do not know things because they do not have to remember them in their head.

The old guy is right.
