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.

Don't cut off the hand that feeds you. (no pun intended)
People are stupid.
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’”?
I hope they sue.
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?
I have started to because of several stories like this.
On what grounds?
Why should they sue? Particularly if they were, indeed, fat? What the restaurant did was very stupid, but it was not a legal offense.
Let's not live in denial, Tubby.
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 Ds 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”.
I swear I can see 11 foot pole marks on them.
He should have put the ititials “FG” on the receipt and then we wouldn’t be having this conversation.....but they are fat.
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.
Okay, there was something about that post of yours that nearly made me ruin my keyboard...
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.
