Time To Play Doctor For This Chick That Got Her Server Fired After He Made A Fat Joke On Her Receipt
Source- She and her boyfriend frequent Casa Mexicana about three times a week. The servers know them by name.
"So there was no reason to have anything like that on the receipt. I noticed on the line where it said customer for our tab, it said, 'X Gordo,' which means extra fat in Spanish," Rummerfield said. "It really hurt my feelings because I have a thyroid disease and I used to be extremely skinny. But my weight is out of my control right now. I take medication for it."
Rummerfield immediately confronted the restaurant's manager.
"He said it was someone else's tab," she said.
But Rummerfield said she got a different answer from the bartender.
"I went back to the bar and said, 'Well, why did we pay someone else's tab? Can we get our correct tab?,'" Rummerfield said. "And that's when the bartender proceeded to tell me that he did write that, and he did mean it in a derogatory fashion."
Time to clear things up. It's pretty obvious that this joke was made at Rebecca's expense. Am I surprised that a random fat chick in Arkansas knows enough Spanish to realize that 'X Gordo' is an insult? Well, quite frankly I am, but that doesn't make it any less mean. Not completely sure why any one would read a receipt that carefully, but she did and she reserves the right to be angry about what she saw.
More importantly, I think this girl needs a second opinion. I have a question you, Rebecca. Did you develop your "thyroid disease" before or after you and your boyfriend started eating at the same Mexican restaurant THREE times a week? Does your "thyroid problem" have some fancy scientific name like "slow metabolism"? That's what this sounds like to me. I think I may have just cured this girl, and it's all because some immature server at a dumpy Mexican restaurant in Arkansas unintentionally brought attention to her "condition" because he just had to get his fat jokes off. Now all she has to do to solve her "thyroid problem" -and in turn stop facing weight discrimination by way of proof of purchase- is to stop preceding every single meal with a basket of tortilla chips. If she stopped crushing an entire bag of 'Tostitos' before the appetizers even got there then I have reason to believe she would be in much better standing health wise. Don't worry Becca, I won't charge you for the consultation, but I will request that you apologize to the fat shamer for getting him fired. He may not have had the greatest of intentions, but it's his elementary sense of humor that inevitably led to your new diagnosis, and hopefully your future recovery.
