Newport Beach, CA – Orange County businessman Mark McHenry reportedly enjoyed going to the Landmark Steakhouse even though he sometimes found their treatment of him to be odd.  One example given was an employee remarking to McHenry, who is black, that “black is the new white.” In spite of this, it was reported that McHenry visited ‘dozens and dozens’ of times that including bringing friends.  He was also considered to be a generous tipper.

McHenry sounds like a customer that Landmark would like to keep, but – after one of his visits – McHenry took a look at his Landmark receipt and saw that it referred to him as “McStinkyNigger.” He then dug out other saved receipts only to see himself referred to as “McNigShit” and “McCottonwood.”

In a deposition, Landmark Steakhouse co-owner Mario Marovic  described not discriminating “against any group of people on any basis whatsoever.” Despite this compelling declaration, U.S. Magistrate Judge Victor B. Kenton rejected the restaurant’s attempts to stop McHenry’s lawyers from inspecting the restaurant’s entire history of customer receipts to check for a systematic, widespread use of racial epithets. The inspection resulted in the discovery of an additional 12 instances where receipts included racist comments.

While preparations for the case were underway, a bartender who was identified by management as being responsible for the incidents attempted to reach McHenry to let him know that it was just a big joke and to plead for his job. One voicemail recorded the bartender saying, “Yo Mark. Hey it’s [NAME WITHHELD]. Give me a call when you get a chance man. Just wanted to apologize for that tab, dude. You know we were totally jokin’ around.” In a text message on Christmas Eve, he said, “merry christmas! hope to see you soon. we miss you! please forgive us for being stupid. its not the same without you there. luv u bud!”  A third message mentioned his dependent family and mortgage.

The case was scheduled to be heard next month. Instead, the two sides have reached an agreement. There was no report on the terms of the agreement, but it is expected that the damages were ‘substantial.’  The bartender who was so in fear of losing his job after pulling this crap has also been fired.

Beeeeep.  “Hi Mr. Bartender. Just wanted to apologize for that  job-thing, dude.  Luv u 2.”

    Is this the same bartender that gives Jews a pile of ashes for their receipt?

  • Lena60

    Fuck those people, I hardly see that as a joke. I don’t think it is one bit funny.How where they able to print that shit out on a receipt.Ok had to go back and reread. In the text messages the asshat said, “we” more then once. I guess the owner can kiss his resturant goodby.Beeeeep. ”Hi Mr. Bartender. Just wanted to apologize for that job-thing, dude. Luv u 2.”Lol kniption

  • LeXiiiLuV

    Wooow…is it bad that I find this story hilarious.. yes folks racism is still alive in the good ol’ USA, but seriously how dumb do u have to be to write racist comments on something you know the customer is going to see? Geesh some people…

  • hershey

    I agree Lena. This is disgusting. I’m also appalled that the bartender would even have the nerve to call the man to save his own job. The saddest part is he won’t see this as his fault, but now he’ll have a personal vendetta against black people. 

    McDonald’s should sue the bartender for his use of the trademark Mc just to make sure he goes bankrupt.

  • All I can Say is wow. Not because of the racism but because the bartender is obviously a complete and total Idiot. 

  • ultracreep

    This should be a lesson for all business owners about how much one stupid employee can end up costing you. The reputation of this restaurant is probably ruined if not permanently, for a long time. I have no idea if the owner was aware of what this bartender was doing or not, but if you run a business, it’s your job to keep on top of what your employees do. As for this jerk begging for his job, I’d tell him to take a running fuck at a rolling donut. 

  • When you have Point of Service system for placing orders you can give your customer a name, or table number. When I go to my boyfriends work they put funny stuff in there so when I get my receipt it says it on the top. They probably didn’t realize that it prints on the receipt as well. That being said… These people are idiots, and deserve everything they got.

  • I’d be concerned with what they may have done to his food before serving it to him.  Can’t prove anything there at this point, but you gotta wonder. . . .

  • JGo555

    As a waitress, I did hated to wait on certain people. But before anyone says anything I would wait on them ONCE and base my hatred of waiting on them on that.

    I used to work at a fancy hotel’s restaurant. And I hated waiting on/room servicing:

    1. Terrence Howard. Yep, that Hollywood B-list actor is a cheap bastard (tipped me A DOLLAR even though he wasn’t paying for his own room) while making the movie “The Animal” in Puerto Rico.

    2. Dominican people. And I can discriminate cause I’m one of them.  The particular family that I hated was all dressed up like they were rich to the hilt & as soon as they sat down they demaded like assholes AND DID NOT TIP.

    3. A south american pro-golfer that I don’t remember his name. He tiped 50cents & would be demanding, assholy to me (treated me like I was dumb and I went to college which his golfing ass didn’t) while he had bags upon bags of high end stores purchases.

    Then I waited in a small restaurant in Canada.

    1- One man stood out. Not because he was mean, but because of his SNOT. Yeap. SNOT.
    He would come in, order a coffee & then wanted me to talk to him. All the while his nose had run from the winter cold & he had “wiped” it off with his sleeve. In reality, he had smeared it to look like a streak to the side of his face. Oh did I mention THAT IT HAD BLOOD ON IT???

    2- Parents in general that let their kids play with all the condiments on the table leaving a sugar, salt & pepper mess with on top of their spilled drinks. THis goes for hockey teams of 6-14yr olds too. Fuck’em.

    Now, because I am a waitress & I know how to wait on people I also am a demanding customer. I don’ make your life hell & I understand if you are swamped. But it doesn’t mean you can’t apologize if the kitchen takes longer, bring me my food AS I ORDERED & tell me that the kitchen got it wrong, that’s why it’s taking so long, and just ask me once in a while if everything’s ok or do I need more napkins.
    THis is another reason why I don’t take my kids to restaurants. They make things harder on the waiters and I don’t like/let them make messes that I would hate to clean.

  • JGo555

    You mean he didn’t realize that the dude would want his receipt back.

  • TruTruTrue

    Eww! Canada 1, would be it.. I’d quit!! Blood!!!

  • TruTruTrue

    Hadn’t thought of that but true!!!

  • Lena60

    Yes he is, and he is clueless to this fact.He kept saying we ,as if other people were involved in this.They may or maynot have been. I have met idiots who said we, to pass  blame or assume you have the same opinion as them.  When I have had the misfortune of crossing paths with this type, I always correct them.

  • TruTruTrue

    The realization is that we’ll never get rid of the racism in this country. I’ll admit I’m a racist, as I do discriminate towards a certain type of people.. Child molesters, parents who neglect their kids and women beaters!!! Fuk’em… Fuk’em all!!!!

  • Lena60

    You got that right.Me and hubby always tip when we stay at a hotel We always leave a tip for the maids.I hate the same type of people that you do. You forgot this type. the type that snaps their figures at you to call you. Grrrr. That was gross about the snot guy *gag*

  • kniption

    …but that’s not racism.  What you are describing – through what I am perceiving to be your humor – is simply discrimination. …and discrimination is perfectly fine.  

    We discriminate all of the time.  Who will be our friends?  Who will I have mow my lawn?  What school will my kid go to?  Where will I live?

    People talk in shorthand about hiring not being discriminatory, but the very act of hiring someone for a job is discrimination.  It must be.  You are discriminating between acceptable candidates and unacceptable candidates.  It is only if that discrimination is based on factors that should not generally be considered (age, race, orientation, etc.) that it becomes a problem.Racism is a very specific and negative form of discrimination.  Your stated discrimination does not support that you are a racist.

  • Lena60

    Did anyone see that story of a school, I think  it was Alabama, that combined math and history?Well these idiots picked slavery out of all the history we have, they chose that one. this is some of the examples of what they had on the childrens school work. If john had 10 slaves and he beat 3, how many slaves were not beaten. If the slave master … ect. It was fucked up anyway you slice it.  I wish I could find the story now to post on here.It read like a bad Saturday Night Live comedy script.

  • HuskerDont

    I always tip well. Even if service is subpar, I tip 15%. Why? Partly because I try to be especially nice to people doing jobs I’d never want to do myself, and partly because, even though I’m not religious or even spiritual, I try to live by The Golden Rule.

  • No, I mean he probably didn’t know it printed on the customer receipt.

  • Steady clientele, good location, good cooks, already tested menu…yep, I would have owned that place had this happened to me.  Everyone in the front of the house would have been replaced.

    I’m sure this hurt Mr. McHenry because no one wants to believe that in the day and age anyone can be so blatantly hateful, especially at an establishment that you have patronized and helped make the success that it is.

  • If the owner is smart he would fire (or transfer his restaurant manager), fire everyone who handled Mr. McHenry’s and the others who had racist receipts orders (that’s easy enough to track from the receipts) and do try to get on every local news talk spot to do damage control.

  • malq
  • rensuchan

    Guess I better start checking my receipts…

  • Jemimabean

    The bartender is a complete moron, on top of being a disgusting little prick. Look, I think that in some small way, we all want desperately to believe that we are better than other people for whatever reason, as wrong as it is. But race? Passe. I had hoped that we had begun to evolve a bit more. I keep being proven horribly wrong.

  • Lena60

    Yes, and plus the fact it was not a one time thing and had been going on a while also causes stress and grief. I feel bad for this man.

  • TruTruTrue

    True that, i see your point.. But as u can see everyone has a different opinion of what racism really is an what is it’s true definition.. Thanks for clearing that up and shedding some light on the subject..

    I grew in a big city and it was very diversified that even I as a teen used the word ma’N… As a form of endearment because all of my friends (all reaches) greeted each other this way. I later came to see what that word really meant. I can only imagine what the adults who heard us use the word thought of us and the loose way we threw that word around.. I guess we all at one point or another contributed to the racism and it’s not till you realize the power behind these hateful words, that u start to see it’s true harm.

  • CrimsonSorrow

    I am shocked that it happened in California. I understand racism is still rampant in America but California is so diverse you would think there is no room for racism! Come on people!

  • GGMon

    Dre Mosley, I have to say it: GODDAMN you’re cute.
    Lol but anyway, I had the same thought. I hope there wasn’t any “Extra ingredients” that wasn’t on the menu.

  • kniption

    Thanks malq.  Two of the receipts can be seen if you click on the respective derogatory phrases in my article above.  The “McStinky…” one is a bit shocking.  I did not make the fact that the images were linked obvious.  I appreciate your noting that.

  • kniption

    I found one that referred to me as an “asshole,” but my lawyer said that I can’t sue for that.  

    Wait…  …HEY!!!

  • GGMon

    Holy crap JGo555 I had no idea you were Dominican.

    I can sort of relate. I went out with my mother, stepfather, and one of her aunts. I don’t remember what set her off but she starts insulting the waitress and it almost stopped the restaurant! 

    I do my best to be nice to the waitresses and anyone else. I know these people must hate their jobs and I can understand they’re only human. I’m a rather patient person. I did work with rich people at my last job and a lot of them are ASSHOLES who like to think they’re the only ones who should be catered to. -___-

  • GGMon

    It’s normally not a good idea to joke using racial epithet with someone you DON’T know. People don’t have the same mindset you do and everyone’s opinion on humor varies differently. I don’t understand how this guy, even if he was supposedly joking, THOUGHT this was a good idea. Surely he knew this would have gotten him in trouble.

    and….McStinkyNigger, McNigShit…? What is this guy, 12?

  • sherrdbw

    I live in Huntsville, Alabama which is built around the defense industries and NASA (Rocket City Rednecks). One of my brothers is actually a rocket scientist. Most of the people in Huntsville weren’t born here, but there is still plenty of racism around. The last major kkk rally here was approx 1994, but I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else in this state. The point of my post is supposed to be about how that bartender seems to have suddenly lost his sense of humor. I wonder why?

  • sherrdbw

    It is difficult to get a new job(transfer), relocate to a new city that is so different from where you came from and then have no one around that you know. What is devastating is finding out that when you finally meet people that you trust and think are your friends, they are actually making fun of and laughing at you behind your back. Disgusting!  

  • sherrdbw

    That is what I was thinking. Prejudice is alive and kicking everywhere!

  • My_Mind_Speaks

    I’ll bet he reads every receipt from now until the end of time…

  • Wow!  Thank you.

  • sweatpoo

    “It referred to him as “McStinkyNigger.” He then dug out other saved receipts only to see himself referred to as “McNigShit” and “McCottonwood.”

    This story made me LMFAO. (It’s totally okay cuz I’m black). What’s with the “Mc’ this and “Mc” that? Must of thought he was on his other shit job @ Mickey D’s.

  • FrikkenFrak

    It wasn’t a “joke”.  That’s how dumbass people try to get out of something heinous they’ve done.

    Here’s the rule in our house:  No “one way” fun allowed.  

  • JGo555

    Yes, we Dominicans think that people need to be put in their place when it’s clearly in our head.

    I like being a waitress but I think people think you are just dumb enough that that’s all you can do.

    You know if everyone was smart as fuck in this world, no buildings would get made (not designed), garbage would be strewn everywhere, no one would be a secretary & no one would be able to sit in a clean toilet outside of your house.

    We are all different and we all need each other in order for society to work as a well oiled machine. Just because someone chose not to go to college & become a doctor & instead chose to be a mechanic does that mean that we should consider them dumb, uneducated & not worth our attention & time. One day we WILL need them as surely as we will one day die.

  • Oh, yeah…I remember reading about that.  It was in Georgia, by the bye.  As a person who loves history almost as much as I love my husband (in fact, love of history is what brought us together), it really pissed me off.  The idea of combining two different subjects is creative, but only under specific circumstances.  The teacher needs to be competent, the students need an advanced understanding of the subjects being combined and the subjects themselves need a certain synchronicity.  Math and history just don’t synchronize that well, as math is objective and absolute, while history is subjective and dependent on interpretation and perspective.  Just mentioning slavery in a word problem says nothing about the history of slavery.  It does, however, make the person who wrote the word problems look like a racist lackwit.

  • Honestly? Because adding “Mc” to almost any word makes the word funny. Pick the most racist, name you can call any ethnic group and then add “Mc” to it… See?

  • Josh

    McMorbid…. =)

  • Josh

    Ever have only certain people return food for non existent problems?

  • Josh

    Some people are better at hiding their true colors than others.

  • It was all a joke, hmm?  I don’t see what’s so funny about a bartender insulting a loyal patron.  If they’d been friends outside of their business relationship, then I could see how the bartender could have thought they were joking around.  It still wouldn’t have been appropriate.  I wonder how the bartender is laughing now that he’s been fired?  Is it still funny?

    I think the bartender’s claim of “it was all a joke!” is even more offensive than the racial slurs.  That’s what bullies and other mean-spirited people say when they’ve been caught and are being held to account for their misdeeds.  When I was younger, I saw it all the time.  Some other kids would be cruel to me and even though I’d ask them, very politely, to please stop, they’d treat me worse.  Finally, they’d get in trouble.  It still confuses me how quickly they’d change.  They’d go from being cruel to contrite, sometimes even crying.  I’d often ask them why it had to come to authorities getting involved, if they were so sorry?  Or were they only sorry because an authority figure had gotten involved?  No matter who the altercation was with, the answer to these questions was always, “I don’t know.”  So I think they only expressed regret because they were getting in trouble.  And I think this guy was only expressing regret because he got in trouble.  He’s probably a bully who never thought he’d be caught.  Well, he was and now he has no job, a family to support and a mortgage.  He should have thought about his family before being a jackass.

  • Josh

    I wave money to summons, is that bad?? =)

  • Josh

    Landmark Steakhouse utilized both types of POS for customer service.

  • Josh

    That voided any discounts that applied to your purchase. =)

  • JGo555

    Yes. Kinda.

    That particular golfer, ordered room service. I still remember his order and this was in 2005:

    A cheeseburger with fries and a coke. His total was $14.95 because of room service mixed in with the obligatory tip of a $1. Otherwise it would’ve been like $11.95.

    Anyways, I take it up. As soon as I put it in the room, his 6yr old kid is all over the fries. He signs the bill and I come back down. I get back down & he calls back refusing to pay the bill for a cheeseburger. So I go back up there to take the food away.

    His kid had finished the fries, the burger was missing 2/3’s and the coke was gone. I refused to refund his money seeing the amount of food that was consummed (sp??) and he got mad & called the manager to the room.

    When the manager came up & he saw what was left he agreed with me and charged the cheap bastard. After that, the dude stopped tipping me the 50 cents & I made sure I did not wait on his ass.

    He always did this with his food to try to get away with eating & not paying but after that everyone knew his cheap ass.

  • Josh

    Good thing you are not being tested on the moral of this story. As far as the Mc this and Mc that comments I can only speculate, I doubt the last name Mchenry had anything to do with it. =)

  • Josh

    Reminded me of these funny homework pictures. The biography on Walt Whitman is funny. http://www.innocentenglish.com/funny-english-mistakes-bloopers/funny-english-student-mistakes/unny-test-answers.html

  • I was actually going to crack a joke but I thought it would be in poor taste (like that’s stopped me before). It would have gone something like this “McNigShit, it’s that what the McRib is made out of?

  • EveryVillainIsLemons

    I can’t believe that anyone would be stupid enough to put that on a receipt (even if it was just seen by staff), especially with the economy being the way it is.  It’s not as if employers are lining up to hire racist shitheads with poor customer service skills.

  • JohnQknowitall

    Man… that is just sad, but hilariously funny!  lol

  • JohnQknowitall

    I can see 10% for shitty service. 15% for okay service. 20% for excellent service. Whatever I can afford for warm and competent service.

    I don’t get the tipping 15% for shitty service.

  • JohnQknowitall

    People deserve respect merely for being human, unless proved to be otherwise.

    This is your experience with him. Imagine the person who has to (chooses to) wake up next to him. Count your blessings. 

  • JohnQknowitall

    K, Good work. The word “discrimination” has gotten a bad blanket connotation.

  • JohnQknowitall

    I still want to know what brought the odd “black is the new white” comment.

  • Delaney3030

    I hear the streets are paved in gold there, too.

  • Hopefully the terms and conditions will include the discriminating asshole being rightfully discharged and the man he offended with at least least a $250M settlement.  This is America and no would should ever have to tolerate any slurs on their appearance, race, religious beliefs or sexual orientation by law!

  • Delaney3030

    I think this is my exact tipping policy. Wow, nail on the head.

  • Lena60

    lol John, no shit.

  • Lena60

    They should have refused him service and told him never to come back.

  • Lena60

    That is so true FF. Can’t really tell in this story, if others were involved or not.Either way it was totally uncalled for.

  • Lena60

    Thanks Avie, I could not remember what state this happened in.I Was upset with the story for the same reason you mentioned.I also think it was tacky and disrespectful.Sometimes Avie I read stuff like this and I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.I can’t believe anyone wouldn think that was a good idea.

    Only if your using his Mcrib to make a Mcfemale.:P

  • Josh

    Cheaper cut….

  • Akelda

     I try to be nice to anyone who’s handling my food.  Then if they sucked,
    I let them know with a tiny tip.  I don’t want to risk anyone messing
    with what I eat. lol

  • malq

    ya! thats how I found them!

  • Na, because then she’d do something Mcstupid like talk to a snake and eat a forbidden McApple. Nothing good can come from that Mcfoolishness.

  • malq

    Yeah it’s funny
      I am honestly trying to ask myself if I would be mad if I got a receipt that said McCracker from a black man at the counter. I am thinking no, not to the point where I make a federal case out of it.
    Contrarily,  I can’t come to say the customer is being over sensitive.  I think we are pretty close to the point where races are going to have to get over this garbage, but not quite yet.

  • Lena60

    Lmao, good one 🙂

  • Cracker doesn’t have the same history as the N word does. Unless you’re from Florida then that’s a whole different kind of cracker entirely.

    I don’t think the N word will ever be at the “get over this garbage” stage. I would be equally as offended if I saw that the receipt read McKike, McSpic, McChink, etc. 

  • Lena60

    I would to and there would be words you betcha.

  • malq

    Is that why it is not a two way street? Blacks can use it but whites can’t. Blacks can insult whites, but whites can;t insult blacks..  it’s because Neeg goes back a ways where as cracker is relatively new? Not trying to be a jerk, but it does seem a bit one sided.

  • Josh

    It all depends on how well you can take an insult.

  • Why do whites want to use the word? That has always baffled me.

    I’m an equal opportunity insulter and don’t believe that anyone has the right to be disrespectful to another based on race and for me that goes both ways.

    And some of the funniest comics I’ve ever heard are the ones who get real about the differences in races…doesn’t bother me. I’m a huge Stern fan to the horror of many of my friends.

  • Josh

    Sad thing is the law is for honest people. This guy was wronged and the business should pay.

  • Whatevn

    I do this as well Unlesssss

    Im at a place that the tip is in the bill. That annoys me.  Sometimes Im planned on tipping more but when the expected amount is put infront of me, I give that exact amount and nothing more.

  • sherrdbw

    The man’s last name is McHenry. That is where the Mc comes from.

  • sherrdbw

    Hey Morbid, you missed it! The man’s last name is McHenry, therefore the Mc.

  • sherrdbw

    The n-word is the most disgusting term to have ever been invented, made up, developed or whatever you want to call it. Never in my entire life has that word ever passed my lips and I can’t think of a situation in which it ever would. I live in Alabama and I hear it quite often. What is so disturbing is that it’s not just uneducated rednecks(is that a slur?) but engineers, teachers and surprise, surprise, law enforcement that use it out in the open. Ignorance has no class boundaries and btw I’m white. I actually had one person try and convince me that black people are genetically predisposed to committing crime. This same person has made comments that are even worse and I started typing more examples, but they are so outrageous that I deleted them. I just don’t get it.

  • sherrdbw

    I just hope that the bartender’s family doesn’t have to suffer from his stupidity, such as his children(if he has any) losing their home.

  • sherrdbw

    I’ve waited tables before and yes, pissed off servers will stick their fingers in your food. Actually you are lucky if that is all they do.

  • No! Really? 😛

  • JohnQknowitall

    JohnQknowitall -as his name states: knows it all- has a take on this type of tipping.

    I don’t like it either, but I know the server was not brought into that policy make’n meeting.

    With bad service I can have coffee and dessert elsewhere. I can also pad the tip with cash with particularly good service. In real life I am incredibly polite (believe it or not), but I will point out to a server if that server’s service is lacking; I am not mean, but I am serious.

    With large parties I think it is absolutely necessary to add the tip in since the entire night can be spent at a cheapskate’s table; nobody should serve for free – I sure as hell know I wouldn’t (especially tables with bitchy people or with the genius and perfect fruits of someone’s loins).

    Even bad servers, except in egregious cases, deserve to be tipped something reasonable.

    My soapbox cracks as I step down.

  • sherrdbw

    Humor me, ok? I’ve lived a sheltered life and don’t understand the point of putting Mc in front of everything. I feel like I’m the only one in the room that doesn’t get the joke. So what is it about when some one puts an Mc in front of other words and why does that make them funny? My parents didn’t tell me the facts of life.

  • That’s the truth! People always think the cooks are the ones who put stuff in your food and we’re not…we just cuss, complain and re-fire. Those darn servers are BRUTAL.

  • sherrdbw

    Yeh yeh, don’t be a smart ass! I’m still trying to learn about the unusual sense of humor here. 

  • DD is kind of like house shoes (or slippers, depending on where you’re from). When you first put them on they feel odd, then after a couple of days they are your favorite thing to have on. You’ll get used to it quickly. Just jump in and crack a completely unacceptable joke…it’s liberating!

  • c a

     This is probably why the damages were “substantial.” I didn’t think of this, but I’m sure Mr. McHenry’s attorneys did!

     Seems like you might be the problem…I dunno how many bad tippers do you have to get before you realize that you, darling, might just have a shitty attitude? Oh, and if you went to college and you’re a waitress–then you are dumb! Just sayin…And I let my kids play with the condiments. It’s someone’s job to wipe that shit up…would bus boys be employed if everyone ate perfectly neat?

  • This is funny shit.  I just spit coffee.  McStinkyNigger..  Too Funny.  I guess that makes me McCrackerAss.  LOL  It sounds better with “Mr”, though.  Actually,. the cracker thing doesn’t bother white people so much.  Its really kinda funny when I hear it.  Mr. McCrackerAss!  LOL
    OT: What a stupid fuckiing bartender.  When you depend on donations (tips) for 50% of your income, fucking with people is a bad Idea.  What dumbass.

  • “Oh, and if you went to college and you’re a waitress–then you are dumb! ”

    How arrogant of you!!! I know many servers who make well over $70,000/year. You have no idea what kind of establishment that she works…but I don’t care if it’s IHOP, she is WORKING. How dare you turn your nose up at someone who is doing what is necessary to provide for their family? Times are hard and people need jobs.

    And before you say something dumb to me like “did I hit a nerve”, no you didn’t. I am college educated, a teacher, a chef (top culinary school by the way), starting a product line and I am a partner in a doughnut business. BUT I will put on a tray and serve in a minute if asked to do it.

    More than 50% if you are any good. Their minimum wage is $2.85 I think.

  • Yes it is, but I it’s a decent establishment he is probably at about $8.00/hr plus tips. Then the servers probably give him 10% of their tips per night.

  • Josh

    The N word has even been used to describe a color of furniture from china.

  • rensuchan

    I was with a large group a few weeks ago at a restaurant and I tipped the girl beyond the included tip because of how kind she was to all of us.

    What I do have a problem with is when the tip is included and the service is absolute shit to the point that I would have given a 10%.

  • This is some funny/sad shit – and some people insist that racism is a thing of the past.

  • You must not be Black … I have experienced racism in Calif … more than once … and some parts of Calif are not all that diverse if you ask me.

  • I always look mine over when I make it home … unless I suspect that I did not receive a stated discount – in which case I check it at the store before I leave.

  • Lena60

    Well arn’t you the shiny bright elitis.It could not possibly be, some people are stingy,  or self entitled. assholes. No way.You sound like a very inconsiderate person.Iam sure in your mind , it is always someone elses job to watch your kids and clean up after them. The kind I hate when Iam at the grocery store. *rolls eyes*

  • Lena60

    Wow! Iam getting moren impressed with you everyday….cause ima woman!

  • Thank you, I sincerely appreciate that. 🙂

  • DangerousKindOfSnark

    I hate that, if I have a complaint about a meal I do it right up front so the server can get me something good. If I’ve eaten most of the meal and something is off I will pay the bill and bring it to the manager’s attention after that. Yesterday we went out and I got a french dip. The au jus was literally brown salt water. I ate the sandwich without dipping it, paid the bill, then brought it up to the manager. He offered to refund my money, but I wouldn’t let him because I’d eaten most of my meal. To do anything else would have been trashy.

  • Lena60

    *wink*

  • DangerousKindOfSnark

    No she’s not the problem. I used to serve and when ever I saw a family come in I knew I was going to be working my ass off for a crappy tip with very few exceptions. 
    I would never let my nephews act like animals in a restaurant period. I don’t care who is paid to clean it up. Manners don’t change from home to restaurant and it’s a shame you haven’t taught your children any. It’s people like you who make me want to cringe. When I go out I want to enjoy a meal, not watch your little cunt blossoms act like monkeys. 

  • DangerousKindOfSnark

    Awww, you’re not an asshole. 

  • DangerousKindOfSnark

    Remember how you said before I handled that one response really well? I think I backslid a bit. Screw that cunt bitch.

  • DangerousKindOfSnark

    Oh, I’m Irish so mine would be McMick, oh, well that’s not funny at all. Why must I be cursed with being Caucasian? 

  • DangerousKindOfSnark

    Hi, I’m the internet stupid shit is funny here. 🙂 It’s just one of the facts of life that “Mc” makes things funnier. Tungsten Rockbody is a funny name, but Tungsten McRockbody is clearly 50% more amusing. 

  • Now you see why my response was the way it was in the other thread. She’s just rude.

  • Very true.

  • Josh

    There are no stupid questions, only stupid people…

  • JGo555

    It seems I have a fan! WOO HOO!

    I won’t defend myself as to my attitude since it would be pointless with you being all hot for me.

    And I was a waitress WHILE I went to the University of Puerto Rico, Río Piedras Campus 2007 graduate. I also moved to Canada after the fact and could not work properly until I had the legal paperwork done, so THAT’S all I could do.

    But I can work now, so don’t you worry. I’ll be an arrogant, annoying teacher/commentator in this site JUST LIKE YOU!

  • Athena

    Unbelievable.  You don’t see the difference between accidentally spilling a few crumbs on the table and letting children play with condiments?  And we’re supposed to believe JGo is the dumb one?  

    Stay classy.  

  • c a

    Speak truth to power, honey. Off your meds, much?

  • Athena

    There are some theories suggesting that, the more diverse a community is, the more incidents of racism will occur.  It makes sense, too.  There may be a higher concentration of hateful people in, say, Montana, but the odds of those hateful people actually bumping into someone to exact their hate on is much slimmer in a relatively homogeneous community.  Also, living around/working with other races does not necessarily result in reversing negative stereotypes.  Sometimes, it actually reinforces them.  

    I’m not surprised at all by this happening in California.  Idiots are everywhere.  

  • c a

     Good. You originally said “THis is another reason why I don’t take my kids to restaurants. They
    make things harder on the waiters and I don’t like/let them make messes
    that I would hate to clean.”

    So Athena, she did not differentiate between spilling crumbs and playing with condiments. Kids make messes at home, and they will make messes at restaurants. I’m not going to keep my kids holed up in the house because some bitch of college-educated waitress doesn’t want to do her job. She is the dumb one, if in fact she had a college degree and then settled for serving assholes like me! 🙂

  • c a

     If you want to go to a restaurant where there are no kids (who are going to be acting like kids), then pay more for something upscale. IF you can afford it. If you frequent places such as Applebee’s, which I suspect you do, then you really can’t complain.

  • c a

     I am inconsiderate, because I am spending money at a restaurant. I am not going to clean up a goddamn thing. That’s not my job. I didn’t work as hard as I have to be wiping tables. I’ll watch my own kids, but I am not doing anything extra. LOL

  • c a

    Waitresses having college degrees. HMMMM Strippers paying for college. See the correlation?

  • sherrdbw

    The only place that I’ve heard a term a like that is when referring to clothes and it would be “white is the new black”. Black is the best clothing color because it is a neutral and can be worn with any other color. When another color such as navy, brown, etc. becomes popular it is said to be “the new black”. Why anyone would use this when talking about people is incomprehensible. Most women will know what I’m saying so this comment is directed toward the male gender, who usually don’t know shit about fashion and style!

  • sherrdbw

    In most nice restaurants, servers pay a tipshare to bartenders, hostpersons and busers. It is usually a percentage of sales, so if a server is stiffed or given a bad tip they still have to pay out the same percentage and it could end up COSTING them money to wait on someone. And folks “time is money” so don’t hang out for more than an 1 1/2 hours unless you are willing to tip extra. The only way waitpersons make money is by turning tables over quickly. BTW, if you can’t afford to tip properly, then go to one of the finer fast food dining establishments or keep your ass at home!

  • JohnQknowitall

    I do know fashion and style. I know the term as you apply it meaning the newest and best. Also, “40 is the new 30,” implying that 40 is now just as good as being 30 years old which is also questionable, but with some logic anyway.

    I still don’t know for sure what the fuck the “black is the new white” comment meant if anything.

  • We had to pay out 10% to the bartender and 5% to the bussers….the hostess was on her own. LOL

  • sherrdbw

    Why not put O’ in front of names such as Tungsten O’Rockbody?

  • sherrdbw

    Oh, there have been many people that I would stare at and think “I know you didn’t just ask me that question”.

  • sherrdbw

    That last sentence was meant to annoy men just for the fun of it.

  • DangerousKindOfSnark

    Yes you certainly called me out. No, I’m not poor I’m an adventure eater and I go to all sorts of restaurants and I don’t care if I’m in Miami eating menudo at a hole-in-the-wall or having dinner at Veritas with family in NYC. I hate when people can’t control their children. Servers are not your slaves.
    There are places designed for kids like McDonalds and Chucky Cheese and I stay the hell away from them all the time. Thankfully, my nephew has impeccable manners and I can take him to restaurants where the chef won’t put pepper on the table let alone ketchup to ruin the food. 
    I’m not going to change where I go because other people decide to let their lives revolve around their precious little angels. If your kid is a brat and thinks they can do what they wish because someone else will clean it up they sound exactly as entitled and snotty as you.

  • malq

    It’s not that anyone rational would want to use it, it’s more the fact
    of the double standard of racism. Like that one white woman that was
    attacked by the 4 black women. They were calling her names like white
    bitch, etc…and it wasn’t considered a hate crime. (Sorry, I don’t
    recall exactly what story it was). Guarantee if it was the other way
    around it would have been major news and the race card would be flying.

    Yes, I get that white people have definitely been dicks and there is
    still a lot of racism happening in the world. My problem is that all the
    walking on eggshells to avoid being labelled a racist is getting
    ridiculous. I’m tired of white guilt; too bad, I haven’t done a damn
    thing to anyone and I’m not going to feel bad because one of my
    ancestors MIGHT have. Time to toss the race card in the garbage already,
    it’s been way overplayed.

    Okay, rant done now, carry on. 

  • Lena60

    It’s funny DKOS, I have never had that problem with my girls when they were little.They always behaved in restaurants whenever we went out any where.Some have manners and respect and some are self centered twits/elitis. I would not think to let my kids do that.Oh the self entitledment ones, you got to love them….not!

  • JGo555

    I hope whoever you’re being a dick to in a restaurant doesn’t washes her hands right after taking a big fat greasy dump & them touches your food.

  • ultracreep

     Wow, if there was a dislike button for that post I would hit it about 39348 times.

  • ultracreep

    So in other words you don’t believe in disciplining your children or teaching them proper manners and behaviors while out in public. Duly noted. 

  • ultracreep

     When I worked at a cafe I HATED when people would snap their fingers. Once I had a little child snap her fingers at me with her parents sitting right there looking at her adoringly like that was appropriate.

  • ultracreep

     I’ve both cooked and served and sometimes both on the same order. I’ve had a lot of people be complete and total asses, but I have never once done anything to anyone’s food. I am just a little proud of that, because I’m not going to lie and say I didn’t WANT to very badly.

  • Athena

    No, she didn’t.  YOU DID.  Try to keep up, darlin’.  😉

    If she doesn’t want to take her kids to restaurants, that’s a personal choice.  I’m not talking about what she said, though.  I’m talking about what you said, which was, “And I let my kids play with the condiments. It’s someone’s job to wipe that shit up…would bus boys be employed if everyone ate perfectly neat?”

    There is a vast difference between not being “perfectly neat” and letting some children throw down with the condiments.  Should your “logic” spill into life outside restaurants, I expect your childrens’ dinner invitations at friends’ houses to begin to dwindle.  I’m sure as hell not entertaining some entitled little barbarian’s tendency to make a mess with my condiments more than once.

    If you keep up with the news, you probably know that more and more restaurants are becoming hostile to families with children, some banning them altogether.  I can’t help but think it has a lot to do with parents like you, who seem to think there are manners-free zones.  I know that if I were a restaurant owner and observed supervised children wasting my condiments and making a mess in the process, I’d at the very least ask you to leave.  

    On an side note, I find your judgment of her chosen profession to be extremely fuckin’ petty.  I’ve got a great uncle who is a member of Mensa (with IQ points to spare) and chose to be a line cook for much of his career.  Choosing a more “menial” career because it makes you happy or you’re good at it doesn’t make you any less intelligent.

  • Lena60

    I willn race ya.

  • Part of me has to laugh at this guys balls for even doing something like that…But because he had done it so many times it tells me one of two things, maybe three things..Ol’ McHenrydude must have been smashed to have never noticed that on those many receipts. Or the guy really did think that the customer would find it humorous…..which is stupid…Or he wasn’t busted the first time so he kept doing it, not thinking he’d be busted.

    had Point of Service at a pizza place – we used to put information about how the customer tipped in the “notes” section (not on receipt)

  • Very true, but how one responds is very important. Papa John’s had a similar incident not long ago — the corporation immediately announced this was flagrant violation of their standards, fired the people directly involved and ordered retraining for everyone at the franchise.

    Having a solid, very public response of “What the fuck, this is ludicrous and awful, GTFO our establishment” can actually be a good thing.

    Bus boys clear the table of dishes and set tables so that the waitress can deal with other tables without those particular chores.

    Too bad MY RESTAURANT DIDN’T HAVE BUSBOYS & the waiters had to do ROOM SERVICE to top it off.

  • **smooch**

  • I’m not interested in anyone having “white guilt”. My question is about the N word, why does it bother people that they shouldn’t say it? What about us make you (not you personally) want to call me a “N”? 

    I don’t say fag, kike, spic, chink, wetback, beener, etc nor do I have a desire to. Never once did I get pissed because I can’t say it or claim that it isn’t fair.

     “Like that one white woman that was attacked by the 4 black women. They were calling her names like white bitch, etc…and it wasn’t considered a hate crime. (Sorry, I don’t recall exactly what story it was). Guarantee if it was the other way around it would have been major news and the race card would be flying.”

    Just based on what you’ve stated and not knowing any other facts that does sound like a hate crime IMO.

    “My problem is that all the walking on eggshells to avoid being labelled a racist is getting 
    ridiculous. ”
    Who are you walking on eggshells for or are we referring to the “N” word again? If so then yes, please go back to my first 2 paragraphs.

    “Time to toss the race card in the garbage already”

    No it’s not, people are still dying over the color of their skin and until that ends then the race card needs to be out.

    Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that people should be able to call “racist” on any and everything and I ABSOLUTELY believe that racism is a two way street, not just a one sided white person issue and those that do it make it bad for the rest of us who have dealt with horrible racism to be able to tell our stories.
