(Says like the Adam Sandler movies used to...) That's a huge b****! No offense, but maybe that guy was having a bad day? I mean, I've worked in busy restaurants before, and yes, it can be VERY stressful at times...and people can be pretty rude at times as well. I'm not trying to make excuses for "Jeff" or anything, but countless factors could be at play here...including the possibility that he was just doing it to be a plain jerk. Who is to say, you know?

Maybe I just like BBWs, I don't know. But seriously, that is actually the only sensible excuse I've read here. I would accept that, but I would also then tell him he should probably find another line of work.

When did the word fat become a dirty word? Much ado about nothing (well sort of)! :rofl:


It is, when you are looking for your 2nd wife. :shifty:

It is hard for people who are overweight to lose weight, and it is hard for some people to not become overweight. We should keep that in mind: Controlling oneself is very hard, when one craves a lot of the unhealthy food. But having said that, I believe fat people should accept the reality and they shouldn't be offended if people describe them as fat. It isn't an insult; as others have pointed out, it's just like describing someone who has blonde hair or dark skin, isn't it?


I wouldn't go that far, but it is hard for women to control themselves, it would be very easy for them to lose weight, even if they ate unhealthy, they just need to be more active.

I would have taken the bill back, apologized, and brought back a new bill that said Obese Girls.


These women aren't just obese, they are morbidly obese.

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.


I'm not with them at all, they're morbidly obese, it's a fact, should the waiter have put that on there, of course not
But don't be fooled, they will go back, they obviously have no self control or self respect.

My guess is they're doing this for the sweet sugar filled attention they crave.

It really isn't that easy, especially when the weight gets to a certain point.

Holy crap! Look I'm fat, I know it, these women are cows! They should not get ****ed at the restaurant, they should be mad at themselves, plus the only reason they are upset is because they didn't get their meals for free, I know I would be content with a 25% or 50% reduction, but I would not have complained, I already know I'm fat and it's obvious to anyone the sees me

Spoken like someone who's never had to deal with being overweight.

However he was saying bye bye to them returning to eat there-- plus they tell their friends-- and went on TV....
That means loss of business...

You should be saying things to make the ladies want to come back and spend more money...

I mean picture this-- All the "fat people" stop going to that restaurant which is more than 1/2 of the business then Jeff is out of a job... yes real smart to tell the truth... Right???

They're obviously embarrassed about their weight so they don't need someone to rub it in their face by putting "Fat Girls" on a receipt. If someone was mentally retarded, would it be okay to put "retarded person" on a receipt? Yes, it would be stating a fact but it's not about telling the truth. It's about how the other person feels. Fortunately I'm not overweight but I know people that are. Little things like that can really hurt your feelings. The same can apply to someone who's severely underweight or paraplegic.

With that said, I think they took it a little too far by going to the media with their story. They should have been happy with the 50% discount. All they've done so far is shed unnecessary light on their story. It's obvious that being overweight is unhealthy and in most cases, it's the result of a poor lifestyle (e.g. eating unhealthy food and not exercising). If I was embarrassed about my weight, I'd do whatever it took to become healthy and improve my self-image. The women not only made themselves look bad but they brought negative attention to the restaurant too. It seems like they're throwing rocks out of a glass house.

Yes, it is.

You should write a book and make millions telling everyone how easy it is. Be sure to send those women a free copy and a thank you. LOL.

Those girls are NOT BBW's in my opinion.

The women not only made themselves look bad but they brought negative attention to the restaurant too. It seems like they're throwing rocks out of a glass house.

My personal rule is to not make fun of people for things that they can't change. A mentally challenged person can't change that so don't make fun of them for being mentally challenged. This women are clearly healthy enough to waddle into a restaurant/casino which means they are still healthy enough to work off the weight. Make fun of them all you want because they are fat by choice. It is not like those kids you see on TV that are to the point of being so fat that medical help is the only solution. I have watched a coworker go from 415 to 250 over the course of 2 years. It wasn't an easy or short trip, but it's perfectly doable if you actually want to help yourself.

This restaurant should offer to pay for a years membership at a local gym or something to make up for what happened to them. Not only do the women get something free, but the restaurant is then helping them to never have that happen again. Problem solved.
