Are you insinuating that Blacks are uncivilized & the entire Black race are bad tippers solely based off of your experience driving a cab?

Wow...

My point is that the waiter was probably unhappy because of his previous experiences which led him to do what he did.

Where's the story? If management kept the guy and didn't offer any consolation for their service, then yes it warrants a spot on the local news.
Someone got offended. That makes it important, lol!

This right here. The 'N' word in music has a different spelling and meaning than the 'N' word when being used by racists. If the music version of the 'N' word didn't exist, racists would still be using it - you people are aware that the 'er' spelling was around and being used before the 'a' spelling in music, right??



I can't even. "Lol"
Different spelling? You haven't listened to much D12, have you? My music taste spans the spectrum enough that I have to call you out on that one.

I think the media should be told. There's still a lot of people out there acting ignorant by saying "racism is dead" or "it doesn't exist"

Not at all insinuating that blacks are uncivilized, friend. However, the ones that I picked up in my cab for the most part were bad tippers.

So now waters result to insults instead of spiting in people's food.
He should know who to give it to based on the Table #. Serving 101. There was no need to ever write that word on a receipt. Clearly he was not a competent person, so I guess he needed extra help to remember who to give it to. Let's just hope his next job does not involve interacting with people. Maybe he will be in a science lab cleaning poo from rat cages. We can only hope...

Well then he probably should have quit. Also, what 'previous experiences'? He was only there for 1 week! Experiences from previous jobs? You don't take that with you to next jobs. Again, competence clearly isn't Ragheed's strong point.

Poor kiddo. Back to the application process he goes!

I would not eat there if was starving to death. If he felt that wHat, what about the food here served.

The waiter is handling your food. If he dislikes you, should you trust him w I th your food?

Would you trust a waiter like that with your food? Not!

Glad he was fired. Absolutely inexcusable.

Honestly I think the owner did everything he possibly could in response to this. Unfortunately, their Yelp is being flooded with one-star reviews directly in response to this, mostly people who haven't eaten there, from outside the state.

That's gotta really suck, to work hard to open and run a local restaurant, only for it to be ruined by one bad egg, who was only there a week, and was promptly fired.

Some of these idiot yelpers even admitted that they knew the waiter was fired, yet continued to blame the entire business itself.

This kind of thing can happen to any restaurant owner, no matter what they do.
