U.S., California - When three friends finished their meal at a California restaurant, they did not expect to be insulted on the bill.
That is exactly what happened to Christine Duran, Christina Huerta and Isabel Robles when they visited Chilly D's Sports Lounge in Stockton, California. When the three diners got their check they saw "FAT GIRLS" written on their bill.
When their server returned, the three girls questioned him about the "fat girls" label, but the waiter denied any wrongdoing. He said an employee named "Jeff," whose name appears on the receipt, must have typed "fat girls" into the system to keep track of their bill.
A manager went over to explain the "fat girls" check, but he “had a smirk on his face, like it was funny, but trying not to laugh,” Duran says. Instead of clearing all charges, he offered a discount of 25% and then a discount of 50%, but the women rejected the offers.
On Saturday, Chilly D's posted an apology on its Facebook page over the insulting bill.
"[...] I completely understand why they were hurt by what was written on their receipt and that type of treatment isn't tolerated. Also there will be no tolerance in the future, guaranteed. Everyone is welcome in our establishment [...] My hope is to heal our newly tarnished reputation so that everyone feels safe and welcome again. And if these ladies would like to meet with my family and I, so that we can personally apologize, we would really like to do that, because we do not want anyone to have an experience like this."
