Waiter leaves rude message on receipt
A not-so-family-friendly Mexican restaurant in Halifax was left red faced after a family discovered that their daughter had been described as a little ‘f***er’ – on the receipt!
The astonished parents of hungry daughter Molly Cartin, 2, complained about the slow service at the newly opened restaurant where they sat in the designated kids’ zone. Their complaints were passed onto the waiter, and after their meal they received their food bill, which featured the insult.
“I couldn’t believe my eyes. The meal was indifferent anyway but to be abused on the bill is unbelievably offensive – it’s awful behaviour,” Molly’s dad Craig Cartin told the Metro.
The insult appeared in amongst the food orders and was clearly an insult to the 2-year-old child.
Restaurant owner Steve Ryan has apologised for the message and the member of staff responsible has been sacked. The family have also been offered a free meal.
What’s your worse family dining experience? Let us know below…
worse thing weve had was jack stumbling when standing on a chair and dropping an iced finger on someones head in greggs, luckily he saw the funny side!
OMG-how did the parents keep their cool???? That is disgusting,especially in a dedicated kids zone.
Have never had bad experience in restaurant,thank god!!!!!!!
That's inexcusable really.If a restaurant has a designated child's area,it would imply they were a place that catered for children.You can't expect a hungry two year old to sit and wait for long.The waiter's comments weren't down to the restaurant but maybe they should vet their staff a little better and maybe if service hadn't been so slow the situation wouldn't have arisen in the first place.
The worst situation we had was when we went to a pub restaurant when Arthur was two.We phoned ahead to let them know how many,and how many children,us and another BIL/SIL and nephew.They said no problem,they told us when the best time to go was,but still the service was very slow.The highchairs kept collapsing and had no harnesses,so I had to keep a constant eye on those as we had Arthur and Arwen in one each.They served everyone but Arthur's,he had to wait ten minutes more than the others,by which time he was hungry,tired,and had a huge paddy,threw a toy dinosaur across the table,spilt SIL's drink all over her,and we had to go and calm down in the car.His dinner finally got there,he was too tired to eat ,and fell asleep before he got his pudding.
We don't do restaurants any more
thats awful jo!!
Weve had quite a few long waits before but i just end up cancelling jacks meal and giving him the stash of snacks i carry then he has some of mine and roos, some places are soooo slow, frankie and bennys is the best place for kids, they always serve them first and if its busy bring a salad or veg out for them!
