I'm guessing it was the F-word, or some form of s***. Could have been freak. :huh: Who knows why ...

Someone has been working at the restaurant too long.

Apart from the obvious exclusion of the word that is the point of this story, we're also missing the bit where the family went in, were rude to the staff and paid the price :p

Possibly

I am guessing you didn't watch the video- that was on the link page-
The family went in-- then waited 30 minutes with no one taking their order... they flagged a waitress down... she left and wen home not submitting their order... they took their order for a second time... then brought the wrong food... waited another 15 minutes.. and wrong food again... then waited 20 more minutes for the correct food only to find an obscenity on the check of a "Family" restaurant.
One of the past Slogans for the Chain was...

[b][i]Fast Friendly service at a Friendly price.[/i][/b]
\

Which is -- OOH! That Looks Good!

The Family place

That would go great with IceCream.
So you tell me was that so "Friendly" and you are wondering if they were rude to the staff.

Though I don't know about you , but after the first 30 min wait time I would be done and want to go some place else--

I feel dumber than a monkey trying to work that story out lol

Kinda makes sense if you replace [expletive] with 'Freak' to make 'Freak Show' the insult

The expletive was probably the synonym for 'poop'. The phase "s--- show" is a term some people here use to describe sloppy, rude, and/or improper behavior.

From the context of the article, I wouldn't be surprised if whoever put that message on the receipt was aiming it more toward the terrible waitress that left, rather than the family.

Either that, of that entire restaurant is staffed by pricks who shouldn't be in customer service business. That family didn't do anything wrong, annoying, of out of line.

Yeah, poop show, and it was probably just a reason for why they were getting comped, not against them.
