St. Louis Sports Bar Gives Man Receipt Criticizing His Child
On Father's Day, Joseph Gibson called up Friendly's Sports Bar & Grill to ask if he could bring his child to the establishment, which usually only permits clientele 21 and up, reports the St.Louis Post-Dispatch. The man answering the phone agreed, because it was Father's Day, but when Gibson received the receipt for his fried chicken dinner there was the profane reference to needy children, right below the extra poultry leg he'd ordered for his son.
The reportedly furious Gibson uploaded a photo of the receipt to the Facebook page of the Post-Dispatch. Gibson said that he had phoned the Friendly's manager to say that he was offended, and to ask what action would be taken, and was purportedly told that "if your [sic] that highly offended then don't come in," after which the person taking the call hung up.
"I can understand why the gentleman was upset," Domachowski continued, "and that's why I apologize." But in speaking to CNN, Domachowski also defended the waitress, saying that "she was just in a hurry" and that he couldn't understand why Gibson was "making a mountain of a mole hill."
Gibson is making far less of a stir than other customers who've found insulting remarks on their receipts, though. Last month, for instance, a woman of Korean descent filed a million dollar lawsuit against a CVS in New Jersey over her receipt, which read "Lee, Ching Chong."
