AssAsInAssassin: "Fat?" That's a compliment. Those "girls" are morbidly obese.


The video was rich. They shot them in the dark with really soft lighting, shoulders up of course. When they cut to the shot of the chairs, was I the only person wondering how much their asses hung off the sides?

I bet the waiter still demanded his "Fark Wait Staff Approved 95% Tip."

Of course that would be 95% of the price of the original bill, before the "fatgirls" price break.

No it's not. It's a fact.
You're fat.
All of you are fat.
You ate and were fat.

As a former restaurant manager (late 1980s) I would have fully comp'd their meal. Probably wouldn't be hearing about me on the news either. Losing $25.50 isn't so bad. Getting terrible press plus a district manager on you is definitely worse.

"This is something that we got to live with, all three of us."

This seems like an over-reaction. The implication is that this event will scar these individuals for life. If this is among the worst they've ever gotten for being fat, they're lucky. I got pushed down the stairs a few times in high school so anyone who only called me fat sort of blends into the tableau.

The restaurant should be more subtle. For example, if they just add calorie counts to the receipt...

Bacon double cheeseburger....580 calories
Large Coke...388 calories
Large fries...500 calories
Milkshake...635 calories
Cheesecake (lg slice)...515 calories
.............................................................
You have consumed 2618 calories!
This is equivalent to 3/4 pounds of fat

Coco LaFemme: Mugato: Maybe if more fatties were called out for being fatties there's be less fatties.

While I completely agree that overweight people should lose weight because they'll not only look better but be healthier, I do not agree that insulting or degrading them is the way to go about doing it. Not saying that's necessarily what you were implying.

I'm not heavy, but I have friends that are, and I feel bad for them when people insult them because of their weight. Should they lose weight? Absolutely, but that doesn't mean they should be treated like dirt either.

Just my $0.02.


We shouldn't ridicule fat people, but we also shouldn't enable their delusions that "fat is perfectly natural".

"This is something that we got to live with, all three of us."
No it isn't.
You're fat now.

No excuse for being fat.

dickfreckle: When I was a bartender our POS system did not print whatever you named the check. So you were free to name your tabs "c*nts" or "lower lip sticks out" all you wanted. It was actually helpful, especially when working with another bartender and you need to cash out a tab the other guy started. "Hmmmmm, 'obnoxious fat chick.' Ah, this must be her."

Then they changed the POS system. Out of habit, we all still used insults to describe our tabs. I got very, VERY lucky when I was busted for naming a tab "hot redhead." She laughed and even went out sightseeing with me after we closed. But what if it had been one of these fat girls? I'm not a fat-hater (at least not to the rage-inducing levels of many Farkers), but it is and identifying characteristic that helps you keep your sh*t in order when you have 35 tabs running and everyone is screaming shot orders at you while the Beastie Boys are playing so loudly that your teeth are bouncing.

Anyway, my point is that this is a very common practice, and instead of suing or whatever, maybe these girls should lose some weight. It should be a wake-up call, not an offense. Everyone already thinks you're fat - this employee just used it as a way of keeping your tab separate from the skinny couple next to you.


I make tips at my job, and we keep orders straight by asking for first names. It's just a whole lot easier in the long run, unless you get two customers with the same first name, in which case you let them know they share a name with somebody else and ask for a last initial.

Why do you have to turn this into a tipping thread, with hyperbole at that? This thread is about obnoxious fat chicks.
 
2012-12-08 11:39:19 AM

cryinoutloud: The manager apologized, but his first reaction was to offer 25 percent off the bill. The ladies were shocked.
"He was like, 'Well, I can do 50 percent,' and we were just like, are you serious?" Huerta said.

did the server lie? No. Going to the media to advertise how you got called fat, when you are undeniably fat, doesn't get much sympathy from me. And oh, girls--everyone else calls you fat too. Just not in print. Deal with it.


they'd have to do a body fat % check to determine fatness
anything under 50% = more human (bones, muscle) than fat
anything over = more fat than human

anyway the people who made that was retarded. because a 80% BF individual is STILL obviously human. why would ANYONE get offended by teh term "fat"

I've been referred to by the following terms:
"Fat guy"
"White guy"
"Guy with glasses"

I found none of these terms to be offensive, as I am a fat white guy with glasses.

Writing "fat girls" on a locker or a bathroom stall strikes some people as hilarious but most of these people grew out of that phase when they started to mature and develop a sense of empathy, like . . . oh, I don't know . . . around the age of ten. If you're a business manager and still find this sort of thing amusing, then it's reasonable to expect a loss a business and possibly a swift kick in the ass, as well.
 
2012-12-08 11:42:01 AM
but, they are fat, did I miss something?
 
2012-12-08 11:42:16 AM
They're being a bit dramatic, no?

But they are farking fat. Still...that's no excuse to actually type that into the system and put it on the check. Yeah, the servers probably referred to them as the "fat girls" when talking about which table they were serving, but you don't go and leave a paper trail of that behavior. My friend is a server and of course the servers talk about their customers among themselves, but he says they would NEVER, EVER say any of that stuff to their customers face to face; that's exactly how you lose a customer and their future business.

Their meal should've been comped and "Jeff" should lose his job...but was this really something that necessitated calling the news over?

Just a thought:

If it had been a man who needed a wheelchair and his ticket said 'cripple' (or a group of men in wheelchairs and a ticket that said (crippled boys), and he was offended, would you be rushing to defend the server because it's 'true'?

The description of a waitstaff job is to bring out food and keep the customers happy, not to drop truthy truth bombs on the customers. Do you really think these women are unaware that they are fat? Believe me, they're fully aware of it. But that doesn't make the ticket less hurtful in that moment, and neither does the truth of the statement.
 
2012-12-08 11:53:35 AM

Ennuipoet: Having been to Stockton I just want to say I am shocked! I mean "fat girls" is entirely vague and descriptive of the vast majority of Stockton's female population. This server should be severely disciplined, in the future receipts should read "fat girls, bad tattoo of what may be Jesus on left shoulder, lime green tube top" so we know exactly to whom it refers.

aimtastic: When I worked at Red Lobster, one couple who came in frequently had to be 400 lbs+ each. We'd have to sneakily find the armless chairs and move them into place at a table before seating them.One of the stupidest waitresses I ever worked with was waiting on them one night and asked if they'd like any dessert. When they declined, she said, "No? But you look like dessert eaters."


Yeah, that's pretty bad, but management has to take some blame as well. When I worked at Red Lobster (busboy, many years ago) all servers were required to push desserts, drinks and appetizers and measured by the average $$$ of each per check. Results were displayed on a chart and the lowest scoring server in each category was framed with a paper "dog house" drawing and called out by the manager at daily meetings.

What the waitress in your example said is pretty bad, but I bet it wouldn't have happened without pressure from above to constantly be upselling.

Could it be that fat is often used as an insult, and so when people are called fat by strangers (especially women, who are pressured to be thin at all costs-- not just healthy, but THIN THIN THIN) they get a little defensive?

Well not to defend them (see my previous post), but the difference between your (very) CSB and TFA is that the latter happened in a restaurant. You know, with fixed tables and seating positions... these women could just as accurately been identified as table 7.
