Gee I wonder if ant one server has ever put down "wet backs on#2" This go to show that what I have told my kids is true, unhappy people treat others no respect. I was owner of a restaurant in Lake Tahoe, we made it law that each person is our VIP. You always want them to come back. You want the server to give the best of what he or she has. I am sorry for the women who had to suffer the embarrassment of a very unhappy person. That person needs to have a job with the IRS or in a warehouse.

If you are fat .. you do you bother when somebody calls you fat ? YOU ARE LITERALY FAT ... is not a curse ..it's an adjective and it is not called an insult in dictionary ..GET OVER IT ...
Basically if i call somebody SKINNY i should get sued ? oh boy .. WHINERS!!!
The truth hurts , sometimes .... they are over weight & extremely fat , what is their BMI , if the were measured for BMI , i guarantee their reading would indicate that they are obese !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If they dont like it go to a health club & work out to get weight at an appropriate level to their height . ( HWP )

Look if you've ever been a bartender at a busy bar you have to have a way to keep track of who's ordering what. You have to make sure the customers are charged correctly and all bartenders have a way of organizing it. Yes, the bartender should have been more sensitive but the real issue here is with the computer system. The comments that the bartender makes to organize his customers and his thoughts should not appear on any other computer screen but his that he's logged into and should NOT appear on the receipt.

"Do unto others what you would have them do unto you" are words we should all live by.
No comments should be made to these women because they are paying for a service. If he had a problem taking their order, he should have assigned their table to someone else. His behaviour was definitely not acceptable in a workplace. Pink slip coming up!
Im a plus size woman myself, and I feel that whatever your weight, the
restaurant employee's have nothing to do with it. We are not begging
them for anything. We have to pay for the food, in order for them to
be paid. So we should be entitle to good service, and their comments
kept to themselves. They would not have a job if there was'nt any customers.

Yep,this is the new world we live in,as an overweight person,I know how theses ladies must feel,I am discriminated against on a daily basis not because of my color or anything else but because I am overwerweight
somehow this generation got it in their heads that its okay to hurt peoples feelings without repercussions,this has become the new form of bullying,
and everyones okay with it.

It seems to me that this generation somehow got it in their heads that being fat and letting themselves go is OK, and god forbid someone actually call them on it. What is amazing to me that these ladies show no embarassment in going national with this story. This proves to me more than anything that they think it's OK to be a huge stinking fat hog. Well it's not, and they should be embarassed. Embarassment is what keeps people excercising and watching what they eat.

This is the type of attitude that is ruining America. "I'm fate, so people should walk on egg shells around me since I stuff my face with fried food an colas all day. I should get free stuff from the government too since I'm a fat slob". You call a red car "red", and blue house "blue", and a fat person "fat". Dont want to be called it? Don't be it.
hopefully they were kind and descent women and they left a tip ...the guy may have been running to get things for other overweight picky people all night and getting stiffed on the tip or they may have been regulars who regularly forgot to tip or possibily bad tippers? we really havent heard his side of the story and is only a one sided story? my advice is if you can't take a joke or get hurt easily maybe lose some weight or eat smaller portions?...(it worked for me i use to punch people out that would make fun of my weight!)

Every one must take responsability for their actions. Chances are, Jeff will lose his job. His * move, he'll have to pay the price. Those three women have eaten their way to obesity, they will be called fat. They are indeed, fat. If that hurts your feelings, do something about it. This is nothing like racism, you can control your weight. We've all seen "The Biggest Loser", it can be done. Toughen up people.
I agree lets all get offended, I saw a fit person at the store (how dare I notice), my friend is skinny (how evil am I to describe them that way), my Dad is tall (gosh another bad comment) and yes those girls are fat. If it quacks like a duck ...
Oh please, "we felt pain and humiliation so we are going to go on a Nationally viewed show to tell everyone". Get over it you whales! Waddle back to your homes and eat some more frijoles, rice, beans and young children.
