Just take some personal responsibility and lose some weight. It's ridiculous that people have to apologize for stating the truth nowadays. It is even more ridiculous that people get offended when confronted with said truth. Was it nice of "Jeff"? No. Does the world need to stop turning because a few fat girls got offended? Absolutely not. We need to stop this "politically correct" BS immediately. Sometime the truth hurts, but it will still, always set you free.

The manager apologised and offered a 50% discount, but that wasn't good enough, they wanted 100% off, free meal vouchers, a buffet pass, and $1,000,000 towards their dining budget. Hey casinos are rich right? Payday!!!

Don't really see how anyone can be offended by the truth. If someone wrote something that was not true then its fair enough to be offended.

What you say is true but in Retail,Hospitality, and Food Service industry that does not fly.

FAT OR NOT

That means lost revenue.

You think other "Fat People" are going to want to dine there... I think not...

What Jeff did was alienate the customer base. (I mean why make fun of the customers that pay your check)
Which is really dumb the way the economy is where there are so many other choices those women can go to.

So what happens next--
Those three women tell their friends and they tell their friends plus go on TV.
The restaurant that used to do 200 covers a night now only does 50 and guess what Jeff is out of a Job.

I mean there is a point at which one should use common sense and NOT alienate the customer base when they can go elsewhere.

When I worked in the food service industry-- I was taught that customer is 2$ towards my pay and a 5$ tip.

And if you treat them well-- they tell their friends and family and more customers come in.

What I found interesting in the video, is when the one girl told the other girls their receipt said "Fat girls" they laughed because they thought it was funny that the fat girl holding the receipt called the group "Fat girls". But once they found out someone else really did call them "Fat Girls", now the **** just got real!"

That being said, I think it's wrong to put "Fat girls" on their receipt.

Speaking of Their receipt , which they decided to make VERY public, I'm looking at what else it says. Coke and fries.....REALLY?.... and you wonder why people think you are fat!

Had the words Diet coke and salad been listed anywhere on the receipt, I would have respected them.

I'm with the fat chicks on this one.
While I'm all for Freedom of Speech, as a business owner I would have fired
the employee on the spot for making my business appear unprofessional, and
virtually guaranteeing no repeat business from those customers.



And you really don't want fatties to boycott your business if that business is a resturant!


I think some people are missing the point by arguing "Oh, dude just stated the obvious". It's not his job to provide physical desciptions of the customers. The hospitality industry is about servicing and building a rapport with customers so you can enjoy repeat business. You don't be rude, regardless of your personal opinion of the customer. Fat, short, tall, ugly, attractive, stupid, yokel, redneck, yuppie, ******, moron. All words you could use to describe customers, but never should. Obviously there are some people on this forum who should never be permitted to deal with customers.


Also, why do I get the feeling if someone called your mother, or sister, or girlfriend "fat" you wouldn't be so OK with it?

What is wrong with calling overweight round-as-barrel girls...fat girls? Instead of giving interviews or moping about it, they should go on a diet and exercise regularly. Morons.

You stated exactly my point, but I do like that ending you used.

How would someone else feel if their flaws were pointed out.

Not to mention-- they should realize that each customer is a TIP.

So if it was a table of 3 big buff black dudes, you think handing them receipt that said, 3 n****rs would be OK? I think I get it now.
