Lady J: why would an american waitress speak 'exclusively' to a [terrible] british 'news' outlet?


in this case i think "exclusive" just means "first".

I also refuse to believe the girl in those pictures is actually black.  Her name sounds too normal.  Toni Christina?  Why isn't there a 'q' or an apostrophe anywhere in her name?

are the fail trying to gain a foothold in the land of the free (or at least the subset of that land who are as dumb as rocks)? brits couldnt give a flying fark about god or whether people are religious so it feels like that slant of the article was pretty irrelevant this side of the pond.

perhaps the fail will be the new national enquirer. what are those magazines that are even worse - complete fabricated nonsense about aliens, and buses on the moon and suchlike?


Maybe they mean exclusive to Britian because the fail is the only paper that seems to love to report on bad Americans (they do love the teach sex scandals and what not).  She obviously talked to the local news as well.

If you are a seafood restaurant you should at least know how to cook shrimp.  About 30 seconds in boiling water is long enough (maybe too long).  Endless shrimp isn't appetizing when I think of your overcooked rubbery shrimp.

ReapTheChaos: What's naive about it, the part about it being fake or the part about them suing? Plenty of these stories have turned out to be fake, in fact I think almost all of them have and if it is fake they would be well within their rights to sue her and the restaurant.


dukeblue219: Care to explain why? I'd be livid if I signed the "customer copy" and left behind the restaurant copy, which was then manipulated into something like this. If it was then printed in a news paper with my name visible I'd sure as hell consider hiring a lawyer. It's no different than taking out a front page ad in the paper saying "Mr. suchandsuch is a racist."

I love that attitude....  Perform bad service.  Customer uses conventionally established means to respond to your bad service.  Treat customer with further bad service.  Profit.

They're not identical. They're similar enough that I could believe that they were written by the same hand though. The two n's in "none" aren't identical either, but close enough to one another. Maybe that person writes capital N's different from lowercase n's. It wouldn't be all that unusual. What would be unusual would be for one person to sign the check and then another to get out a different pen to fill in the tip line.

Then they should have ordered carry-out. Instead they were sat at a table, provided drink service, and then decided to take their meals to go. That is restaurant service since they tying up resources by using a table. You don't need to leave 20%, but a tip is expected.

I'm on the fence for this one.

First off, well, it's Red Lobster, so its a vortex of suck no matter which party we are dealing with.

We have seen such situations be both true and a lie, so we don't know which it is.  The waitress should not have posted the alleged racists name out in the open

The fact that she did puts let you pretty easily google a possible guy in the area.  The Red Lobster in question lies between his home town and Nashville, so its a likely candidate. On one of the first google hits for this name, it turns up a dating site.  On that is listed as areas of interest is "Call of Duty: Black Ops".  I guess I'm too far out of the dating world, but I didn't think that was a thing you would want to promote as beneficial to attracting women.  I guess I should make sure there are no kids on my lawn...

I know many people who make their capital's the same way they make their lowercase, just larger. But I didn't mean that it wasn't normal, just that it was a possibility. I have an ID number I write a few times a day that had the same digit repeated three times in a row, and it's not at all unusual for that digit to look significantly different each time. I don't think there's enough of a sample here to determine authenticity one way or another. Two common letters between the words, one of which is similar? I'm not ready to execute this guy yet.

I'm not racist, but I have racist friends......how's that for diversity?

Okay, the reason why racial epithets should be spoken and not written is simple.  Unless they were recording you, there's no proof and you get the added bonus of seeing the hurt as soon as it's said rather than passively imagining their reaction to your hate as they read what you wrote on your receipt.

And I'm an asshole, I admit.  When a co-worker tipped a waitress on a bill that already had an 18% tip built into it I tried to talk him out of it.  He didn't, but I did tell the waitress she gave us shiatty service and everyone at my end of the table applauded me for it.  The waitress in that case was white though, so it wasn't racist.

Yep, that's me.  I'm not afraid to speak my mind and if you're a waitress that thinks it's okay to let me die of thirst, I'll tell it to your face and if I'm paying I'll just write "ZERO" for the tip.
