Sounds like the woman has some mental issues.


The failure is on the part of the manager who didn't call the cops about the crazy woman having a mental breakdown.

No restaurant (or any other business) in their right mind tangles with ADA and service animals.

So this nut screaming made my cat come running.


Frankly I'm rather surprised that the ADA applies to restaurants.

Also, why should the manager call the cops? Worst case scenario, the woman gets a ticket for maybe $100. That's assuming that the cop even makes it there before the woman leaves.


PTSD doesn't go away because you're in a restaurant. And hopefully the cops would taser her tits off...

Willing to bet that woman wouldn't calm down for the cops, I could totally see her getting hauled off in cuffs. I'd love to have seen that.


Restaurants have to obey this:
Establishments that sell or prepare food must allow service animals in public areas even if state or local health codes prohibit animals on the premises.

Beginning on March 15, 2011, only dogs are recognized as service animals under titles II and III of the ADA.
A service animal is a dog that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for a person with a disability.
Generally, title II and title III entities must permit service animals to accompany people with disabilities in all areas where members of the public are allowed to go.

Service animals are defined as dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities. Examples of such work or tasks include guiding people who are blind, alerting people who are deaf, pulling a wheelchair, alerting and protecting a person who is having a seizure, reminding a person with mental illness to take prescribed medications, calming a person with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) during an anxiety attack, or performing other duties. Service animals are working animals, not pets. The work or task a dog has been trained to provide must be directly related to the person’s disability.

***Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA.***

The lady doesn't have any special right other than if she's allergic or afraid of the service dog, the establishment must try to seat her away from the animal. You can't segregate the owner of the service animal. Nothing requires her to stay, but it does protect the owner from her harassment.
Yes I hope the cop tasers her tits off. TTFN Ta Ta For Now
