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.

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.

serpent_sky: 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.


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.

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.

Oh, I see. It is a horrible act for the mother of that little boy to whisk her son away and make such a vile statement. However, it is OK to to tell a complete stranger's little kid that he is not special to his mom. That is a great way to get her back!

TV's Vinnie: [www.metalsucks.net image 250x200]
Was once at a restaurant where they brought in their potato-counter with them of around 15 years of age. This.......thing wasn't like your average Downsy-but-still-normal-enough type of Corky. This one was of the Tard Elite. Hockey helmet, smells of indescribable origin, shrieking like a banshee between bursts of vomiting & pissing himself, etc. It was like every foul odor known to Man was reeking from this bloated carcass.

I've watched Peter Jackson's "Bad taste" while gobbling down a bowl of pistachio pudding on a dare, I could eat peanut butter while seeing "2 Girls 1 Cup", but this was too much to stomach. The beast cleared the whole joint with 20 minutes from it's nonstop fits of yowling, reeking, and spewing/oozing as many vile substances as possible in great distances, painting the walls and ceiling with his fluids.

Never again. If this ever happens once more in my lifetime, I am quickly going to stop everything right there at the table even if all I had was one bite, rush to pay my receipt, and GTFO before the show starts.


CSB: I was in the checkout line at Wal-Mart, stocking up on toilet paper and booze. Just as I get to the cashier, two older people walk through the entrance pushing a grown adult in a wheelchair, who is absolutely going out of his mind. Shrieking. Long, drawn out, "i'm legitimately being killed", piercing screams. I immediately shut down all eye contact and speech, and start to bite my tongue because I want to laugh. The guy getting his bags in front of me just takes off running holding his hand over his face. I look up at the cashier, and she asks me, deadpan but strained, "debit or credit?"

And as I start to say "credit", I lose it. In front of the parents of the handicapped guy. Tears streaming down my face, laughing my ass off, as this guy continues shrieking like a howler monkey. The clerk starts laughing, too, and turns around so the parents can't see it. I paid, got my bags, and ran out of the store giggling like the fool I am.

Wasn't that cool of a story. You'd have to have been there to appreciate it. Don't read any of this. Too late.

Also, autistic kids don't have super mental powers like in the movies.

Uranus Is Huge!: So far this thread has taught me that it's a far greater crime to joke about adulterating someone's food, than to ridicule handicapped children.


You know where else you could've learned that?

WhippingBoy: durbnpoisn: I've seen people switch tables in restaraunts to avoid my kids, and they are even special needs. My kids are actually very polite and well behaved.

Some people just cannot tolerate young people.

What's wrong with that? As long as the restaurant is able to accomodate them in a reasonable manner, I see no problem with this.


I am one of those people who will ask to move if possible rather than be seated next to a kid. Your kids may well behave well, or you may THINK your kids behave well, but the odds of kids screaming, making a fuss, kicking the seat or whatever are too great to risk it. I don't go out to eat that often, and when I do, I want to enjoy it, not have a bad time because I have to deal with someone else's ill-behaved kid that they can't or won't control, or even better, don't realize they SHOULD control.  Again, your kid may behave just fine. I'd just rather not take the chance.

DoBeDoBeDo: serpent_sky: 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.

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.


You want us to believe the above but then say a small child did a double take when passing your child ? and the mother was able to recognize your child had special needs but he doesn't look it at all ?

The lass and I got a hotel suite next to a family with a kid that was screaming hateful crap at his keepers.
I went to the quiet bathroom and called to get a new room
and got to hear the desk clerk go from helpful to
...oh, you're THAT kind of guest..

after 20 minutes of thrashing and yelling I called the desk,
asked to speak to the asst manager
and stood next to the wall the kid was slamming his body against.

got a better room in seconds
and champagne

the hershey hotel, not to be confused with the highway

Good lord, people. Pretty sure Uranus was making a li'l joke. I know I was.

Tell ya what -- why don't you sign off for a while and go see if you can't find a sense of humor somewhere. We'll see ya when you get back.

Fizpez: Fark that, the waiter should be fired for being a bleeding heart liberal.... probably has an Obama bumpersticker on his car...

/that's the theme this week right?


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?

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.

Would you offer the FULL buffet? Because spinal fluid makes a delicious au jus.

I believe the part where the waiter told the family how he'd heroically stood up for them.
