Everyone has the right to the expectation they will not have to suffer being labeled what can in fact be seen as a derogatory statement on their bill when they go out to dinner. If they want to call them that among the staff, or even put it in a computer system where only the staff can see it, then so be it, that is then a manager or owners call as to if they allow the staff to do such things. However to put it where it was clearly seen by the patrons, sorry, I deem that as inexcusable.
Yes, I have seen the video, and yes, it is indisputable that the 3 women are indeed overweight, however that is not the point. The fact the waiter put what absolutely could be deemed as an offensive description of the women on the check for them to clearly see was unprofessional and inconsiderate. There is no disputing this fact IMHO. I am actually shocked by the amount of people saying it is okay and they need to lighten up. It shows a clear disrespect towards others than is way to prevalent in this society. It has nothing to do with political correctness, and everything to do with a base respect I believe every person deserves on this planet. Even if they could have somehow avoided gaining so much weight, that is a whole other topic of discussion, that does not give others the right to ridicule them.
