On second thought, I will have the special needs kid. With hollandaise sauce on the side.

This story doesn't add up. For NO reason whatsoever, other than the kid was sitting there, they asked to be moved?  I find it hard to believe. There was noise or some other disturbance, more likely than not, which is a fair reason to ask to move tables regardless of how special needs the kid is.  If there was no noise, no anything, then they were assholes of a very high order... but...
IF they were such assholes of such a high order,  that the waiter decided not to serve them... they just left? Without making  scene? Complaining to the manager? No demanding the waiter be fired? That seems unlikely if they were the horrible people we're supposed to believe they were.

Simply put: I don't believe any of this happened as described.

I think one of the best parts about a steak dinner (besides the flesh) is the potato. I love the potato. Smothered in sour cream and butter, bit of cheddar and Oh! maybe a couple of bacon pieces.... potatoes.

Agreed. I asked to be moved once because the special needs kid was throwing a non-stop screaming hissy fit and throwing food at other diners. At one point, he swept everything off the table (dishes and all) onto the floor in a fit of rage.

My brother and his wife went out to Laurenzo's for dinner a while ago and right after they got seated, a couple of people got seated next to them - a family. The boy was loud and kept yelling at his mom, something about I get fries, right? So they put in drink orders and tried to ignore it but the kid kept talking really loud. It was kind of spoiling the mood for them, so eventually my brother asked to be moved to another table. The waiter turned into this complete douche, "What? Don't like sitting next to the special needs kid? Is that it? Is that your problem?" and my brother kept trying to say "no we just want a quiet night..."

Well needless to say, when the waiter turned ugly, "Is it that the tards need to be kept in the tard box? Is that your problem? Get the fark out, we don't serve your kind here," they decided to go. No sense in causing a ruckus - they figured the family with the shouting kid was already embarrassed enough - and at that point he was pretty sure that complaining to a manager or something would just get him a one way ticket to a snot-entree and a side of piss soup. So yeah, they just left.

I wonder if it was the same restaurant.

If there was a disturbance, then the people should have asked to move on the basis of the disturbance, not on the basis that "special needs kids should be kept in special places".

Also, maybe after the waiter told them off, they realized what was up, felt shame, and just left.

Sorry, I have a son who is autisitic (non-verbal). Other than his inability to speak and some slow developed social skills, just looking at him you can't tell. Last week in Target he was walking through the toy aisles and I was following him, he was doing his normal low level hum that keeps him happy and kind of sounds like he's humming a song. A little boy did a double take on him as he passed and his mom tells him "don't pay attention to him, he's 'special'"

So I looked at the boy and said "that's right, your mom thinks my kid is special, and apparently doesn't think the same of you!"

She gave me a very bad stink eye and walked off.

Some people have no farking courtesy and ALWAYS assume the worst. I've waited tables on people that you could just tell from the time they sat down that NOTHING was going to be right, no matter how good the service, food, drinks, etc. It's a superiority thing.

sufferpuppet: So how much noise was the little tard making?


its not the noise that is the issue, but the smell of ol' melon-head shiatting his pants you have to worry about.

I likely wouldn't complain about a floor-licker in a McDonalds (staff, or patron), but in a steak house, i kinda don't want to be put off my meal. In fine dining, its about having a pleasant experience.

I'm going to call bullshiat on your story. You're suggesting that the parents and the restaurant simply sighed and let that happen, huh? And you graciously did as well, only asking to be moved, huh? Nope. Never happened.

No, you've got it all wrong. The waiter was an avid churchgoer with a choose life bumpersticker. If the waiter were a liberal, he'd have simply complied with the patrons' request to be moved, and understood the reason why. He'd then wonder why the Downs kid wasn't aborted.

Seriously, why wasn't he aborted?

personally, i think asking to be moved to a new table is not a big deal. I've done it before around screaming babies and people who talk too loudly. but, according to the article:

She says she learned this family had told the waiter that "Special needs kids should be kept in special places." At that point, the waiter apparently told the customers that he was offended and would not serve them.

If this was said, i understand asking the people to leave. if they just said, can we please move with no explanation, or just explaining that they would prefer a quieter seating option, then there probably wouldn't have been a story.
