From ballou0254: Tried a new pizza place out, it's safe to say they've found a new regular.
Continuing a trend that's gotten old quickly, another racist message was printed on a diner's restaurant receipt over the weekend. This incident occurred at El Valle Mexican Restaurant in Denver, reports KUSA-TV, where a woman's receipt read "you f—— Mexicans" below her order. Beatriz Castorena told KUSA she complained about the message to a waitress, who was apparently indifferent to the matter: "She grabbed it and she seen it and she was like, 'Oh how funny.' I was like, 'That's not funny. That's not funny at all.'"
Castorena returned to El Valle the next day in search of an explanation. The restaurant's manager reportedly told her a waitress wrote the message, and it was intended to be a joke for the cooks. "In the restaurant, you know, cooks and waiters always give each other smack and talk stuff," manager and co-owner Oscar Rivera told KUSA. Rivera admitted the message left him feeling "a little bit offended as well." Rivera reportedly apologized to Castorena and refunded her meal.
Another recent incident involving an idiot printing something stupid on a restaurant receipt featured the words "fried hard like a black d—" on a receipt in New Jersey. In December 2014, a man found the N-word scribbled on his receipt from a Pennsylvania eatery, and a Virginia restaurant employee was fired for printing "MAKE FOR BLACK PERSON" on a chicken wing order.
From Huff Po:
After racking up a $112 bill at a New Jersey restaurant, a group of eight people is said to haverefused to leave a tip for their waitress. Instead, she says they left her a smug message: “LOL.”
Jess Jones -- who, according to the Asbury Park Press, is a 20-year-old Rutgers University student and waitress at D’Jais Bar & Grill in Belmar -- shared her experience with the rude diners in a Facebook post last week.
“I was stunned by this receipt that was left for me by a party of eight people,” she wrote in a caption accompanying a photo of the $112.03 bill. “I would have preferred a ‘$0’ tip than a ‘LOL’ tip, but as a waitress, bad tips and harsh notes are all part of the job.Even though they did wait an hour to eat, they remained satisfied with filled drinks and proper notice that the kitchen was a bit busier than normal. I've worked in the service industry for five years and I take pride in providing great service to my customers."
I would like to make a statement on behalf of wait staff everywhere:
We make $2.50 an hour. Most of my paychecks are less than pocket change because I have to pay taxes on the tips I make. I need tips to pay my bills. All waiters do. We spend an hour or more of our time befriending you, making you laugh, getting to know you, and making your dining experience the best it can be. We work hard, and we really do care."
Many netizens have since expressed outrage at the diners’ behavior, and have offered words of encouragement to Jones.
Belmar’s Mayor Matt Doherty also added his voice to the conversation, writing on Facebook: "If you visit Belmar please treat the hardworking men and women in our service industry with the same respect you would expect at your job. This is ridiculous.”

The one-day hiring binge could increase Chipotle's 60,000-strong workforce by up to 7%.
Chipotle has announced plans to hire 4,000 new employees in just one day.
The chain's first ever "National Career Day" will be held on September 9th, with open interviews planned for up to 60 applicants at each of their US locations - which now number over 1,700 restaurants.
Chipotle has recently bolstered employee benefits such as college tuition reimbursement and added paid sick days, as well as competitive hourly wages in hopes to attract more workers in face of a shrinking restaurant labor market.
The company claims to have promoted more than 4,000 of its crew into managerial roles - more than 95% of the company's restaurant managers, the company said in a release.
Chipotle and its competitors are facing a "war on talent" in certain markets as demand and wages increase according to Wendy's CFO Todd Penegor, as reported by the Wall Street Journal.
The fast-casual chain is not alone in its zealous hiring goals - this July Starbucks announced it was joining the "100,000 Opportunities Initiative", a consortium of employers aiming to engage at least 100,000 millennial workers in hiring programs and exercises.
While the majority will fill positions at existing Chipotle locations, some new hires will staff new restaurants. Chipotle plans to open nearly 200 new US locations this year.
When I went to Paris at around 10 years old, we were sitting outside a French cafe and I asked why people snap their fingers to get attention. My mother told me it was a rude way to grab peoples attention and pretty much treats them like an animal.
At this point my dad decided to demonstrate by snapping his fingers... to which a waiter came running over and asked what he could do for us.
The look of embarrassment on my mums face will live in my memories forever. My dad apologized profusely and explained he was merely showing his son what not to do and how its rude to snap fingers or call a waiter Garçon (boy).
