This was all over Facebook the other day.  Little autistic girl crying over a broken (cut in half) burger.  Waitress decides to help out before the girl had a major freak out.

Then it was time for Wapner.

It's Chili's - how would you know if they served you a dog-turd sandwich instead of their "food"...?

Is this one of those threads where we get to hear the self-righteous FARK Eugenics brigade tell us how autistic children should be kept in their cages or in the work camps instead of taken out into public to dare show their faces at restaurants?

My office is probably two miles or less from this place. And I like to patronize local businesses that contribute to their community. So good on you, Chili's of Midvale. But there ain't a chance I'm eating at your shiatbag restaurant.

I'm all for baby cages and work camps. You only free them to mow the lawn, the dishes, sweeping, mopping, dusting, and all the other chores that my dad didn't want to do.

"A dishwasher? Why do you think we had you and your sister? To do everything we don't want to do. So get to it boy"

I'm on the fence about it.  My grandmother lived with my family while I was in high school.  She had had a series of strokes and each stroke left her acting more and more inappropriate in public.  She would throw food at waitstaff, fart audibly while shopping, and blurt out whatever popped into her head.

The final straw for my father was when we were sitting in church on Sunday and a priest from Africa was visiting.  She shouted, loud enough for the whole congregation to hear, "SOMEONE NEEDS TO TELL FATHER JOHN HE'S GOT A GODDAMN N****R STANDING NEXT TO HIM UP THERE!"

After that she never left the house unless it was for a doctor's visit, or we'd hit Bob Evans at 9pm when there wasn't a crowd.

"We are making you a brand new one that isn't broken, with pickles! I'll bring you some french fries to munch on while you're waiting, ok?"


didn't also trigger the "not my usual routine" tantrum?

Ah, there's nothing quite like racist southern grandparents who are losing their hearing and have no idea how loudly they are talking in public.  They make comments that they clearly think only the people beside them can hear, but they're basically yelling.

My racist Texan grandmother had excellent hearing but she was just a loudmouth evil biatch. She'd come up to Canada to visit and appall everyone.

This. Even if it's good publicity for the chain, so what? It's for a good reason. And the publicity means other people get to learn about how to handle similar situations. It is a win for everybody.

Maybe because there was no tantrum in the first place?  According to TFA she simply refused to eat the burger and didn't say anything about it until her sister asked.  If the fries upset her routine she probably just didn't eat them like the first burger.

Gotta love the for-profit company getting all self-righteous that someone else might be making a profit.  Almost as precious as the for-profit New York Times arguing in favor of laws which would ban unions and political activist groups from making political speech while exempting them.

She's long dead, so we can consider it funny.  At the time, about 20% of our congregation was African American and you can't really stop a Catholic mass to explain that your crazy racist grandmother has had three strokes and no longer has a filter on anything she says.  So at the time - not funny.  Now?  Slightly funny.

Better than the ones where the Farkers all claim Autism isn't real, doesn't have a variety of symptoms, and that anyone claiming to be autistic who isn't exactly like their friend's brother's cousin they met one time is a big fat phoney.

Lsherm: fart audibly while shopping,

I do that.  There is nothing wrong with farting.

I can't read that article without assuming the manager sounded like Will Ferrell doing that sarcasm for training dogs.

"I heard we gave you a broken cheeseburger! I am so sorry about that," Bradley Cottermole said sarcastically to the child. "We are making you a brand new one that isn't broken, with pickles! I'll bring you some french fries to munch on while you're waiting, ok?"

Shouldn't be.

Those threads' topics are usually about douchebag parents who are inconsiderate to strangers that take their wildly disruptive kids to places they shouldn't.

This little girls was behaved, just odd.  Anyone taking offense to the people in the article is "off the ranch" as it were.

TFA: The kindness didn't stop there. The restaurant manager soon appeared at their table, kneeled down and apologized to Arianna for giving her a broken cheeseburger.
