Any other buzzwords you wanna add? Surely you can come up with more?
It's strange that the Left calls people Nazi and Fascist, but they are the ones who will beat the crap out of anyone they think didn't vote for who they think they should have voted for.
The Left are the ones labeling and persecuting people who don't agree with their agenda.

Still feel like slinging those words around? Or is being a hypocrite your goal?

Restaurant people? Lol. You aren't special. I've worked in a restaurant before too, among many other customer service jobs. I know all about how to correctly interact with customers and what to say and not to say. The point is that this guy should have known better. You admit as such, but he said it anyways. So CLEARLY he wasn't smart enough to keep his mouth shut in that regard, so why are we giving him the benefit of the doubt that he wasn't being serious with his remarks?



Because the alternative isn't realistic..
The only alternative is that it was some crazy conservative on there first day with literally zero clue what the job entails..

And this is a supposed crazy conservative in the liberal mecca California..

Any crazy conservatives not working their first shift would have learned the edict long ago and would be milking them for their tip.

Not trying to check their papers when he doesn't even have the authority to refuse them alcohol...

Your not required to have ID to leave the house.. so even in a bizzaro world where servers double as immigration enforcment all any illegal would have to do is claim they forgot their wallet..

As you just did the same with your repeated "the left " lmao..

"The left" is nothing but a buzz word as well.

So at this point we are debating on if the waiter was telling a joke or being serious. So are you admitting that this guy said something insensitive?


I think so.

The way I described it happens at least once a day in every state ..prob more..

A server who thinks they can refuse service and act as immigration enforcement is as rare as a unicorn lol.


It really baffles my mind why you find it so hard to believe that an American in the age of Trump could act like a racist towards latinas.



No I find it ridiculous that some one would do the total opposite from their job and think it was going to work out..


Anyone who did that in the service industry would know they were instantly fired..

I don't doubt there are people willing to...but I don't buy that any server would think it was ok..

It would be similar to shooting at a cop...

Sure some people do it, but no one does it and thinks the cops won't shoot back.

I guess another option would be that the server was intentionally trying to sabotage the restaurant... instead of just quiting go out with a bang and give the buisness a lot of bad publicity..

Maybe HATED the boss and owner so they staged what is akin to performance art..

Still more likely than a server thinking they had the authority to check papers and refuse service..

I think your problem here is assuming the person's mental state is similar to your own.

He was probably acting without much thought and may have felt justified due to Trump rhetoric.

This has nothing to do with trump. This man was an idiot and was fired. I'm of the narrative that he just busted out a really ad joke. Gotta check ages, so lets see, hispanic women, lets see the immigration angle, surely they would laugh it off...

Bro, I've worked restraurants myself, lived in the victorian section eight courts, trust in that there are some pretty dumb people out there. I'm Hispanic as well.
If I saw a group of dudes in a car, I'll be the first to say, "well a regular hotdogged cart here!"

Potentially. But that would have been a really terrible joke if it were one.

Or a joke that went horribly wrong and the buisness wasn't gonna try and defend... Say he was really checking for age for cocktails and as a joke said " I gotta make sure y'all are from here.." Attempting for it to be viewed as a silly, sarcastic joke..but then it blew up...

I have seen this happen more times than I can count in the medical profession.

Some people just can't deliver a joke, and some people just can't read people well enough to know if a silly off-handed remark will fly or not.

As a Case Manager, I developed a reputation for being able to deal with the angry, the crochety, and the hostile customers. I had a pretty good barometer for gauging who you could tease down, and who was best handled with caution or decorum. I had a trainee that darn near got fired for attempting to deal with a hostile family the way she had seen me jokingly calm a hostile family during her training. It just didn't fly and the family wanted to see blood, her blood.

I too have had times that I misjudged a person, or the person just was extremely resistant to calming or compromise, in situations like that I would try to bring in a different mediator, sometimes it worked sometimes it didn't. You can't please all the people all the time and sometimes you are just going to run into a personality clash.

I doubt that someone that depends on tips for a living would deliberately offend a table of ladies out to have a good time. I agree with many others here on that one. From the article, no one else seemed to take offense at the request until one of the ladies may an issue of it, and then pushed it towards their agenda.

It also wouldn't surprise me if this was orchestrated by the Carrillo girl and the waiter. Could have been a friend with the same views and wanted to make a statement.

I still find it REALLY odd the name of the waiter has not popped up anywhere. That is typically the very first thing that comes out as crazed people search for it so they can harass.

I can't remember the last time a story like this came out that all involved were not publicly outed. This waiter must have either no social media presence or some serious internet kung-fu or possibly doesn't even exist. If he exists then it appears someone is really trying hard to not have the name get out which would suggest connections to one of the people in the story to me.

Hell...crazier things have been done to further a cause...remember the BLM poop on the wall story that turned out to be a hoax by a BLM leader?

I'm not a trump fan (hell, I think he did make a deal with Russia..) and I have a intense hatred for all of the conservative propaganda..

That said you are reaching...

Trump being president doesn't change the fact ALL restaurants will fire you for refusing anyone service..

I specifically remember when all the corporate joints put out statements telling all employees that they would be fired for refusing to serve alcohol to pregnant women..

Refusing to take a table for any reason is instant termination.

If you refuse to serve a homosexual at chic fila you will be instantly fired..

That is what makes it hard to believe..

Not that some jack ass would do something crappy, but that in that industry with those rules.. they would think it was ok is ridiculous

That said your reaching..

There isn't enough context to make an accurate judgment. We ATLEAST need to hear the waiters side of the story. Especially knowing how the media likes to misconstrue things to fit their narrative.

I'm reaching? No it sounds like you are doing everything possible to deny that some douche could exist that would truly do something like this out of spite. And you are doing it by suggesting that all wait staff in the country thinks exactly like you do as it pertains to keeping their job. If anything, YOU are reaching.

Keep in mind, joke or otherwise, what he said was VASTLY inappropriate, and even if it was truly a joke if it had been overheard by his manager he would have likely been fired on the spot without the costumer complaining.

Papers please followed by what? A citizen's arrest?

Charming.

But it certainly does highlight national directions. No wonder the US Tourism Industry has taken a dive.

No I said no one who thinks they can refuse service or to take tables would not last a week as a server.. plenty of racists and other uists wait tables... but they all know they can't be racist to their tables and not be fired..

And yes it was inappropriate enough to get anyone fired joke or not..

Also since this was in cali.. how does he not constantly wait on latinos??

Does he try and check papers of 25% of his tables???

This screams isolated incident.

More than that , I promise you the rules for waiting tables have not changed in 3 months of trump.

Anyone who didn't think like that wouldn't last a week waiting tables..

I sadly have an insider view after 20 years of FOH.

Unless you physically worked at the restaurant and knew the guy personally then you don't have any more of an insider's view than I do.

I promise refusing service or to take a table is instant termination everywhere. It is a staple of the industry.

I agree that that's how it's always been.

But things are changing. Maybe faster than we know.

I promise that there are plenty of things that would result in instant termination everywhere that employees from any industry do anyways, because they think they can get away with it.

By the way, looking at your statement logically, you have a harder time being right than I do. All I'm saying is, "Some of the total wait staff in the country are capable of being racist assholes in lieu of protecting their job". You are saying, "None of the total wait staff would infringe on their job to be a racist".

All I have to do is produce 1 person that proves me right to be right; you have to rely on the whole country thinking like you do. Logically, my approach makes more sense. Plus I'm not sure why you find it so hard to beleive that a human will do something. From what I've seen of the world, if its physically possible then you will find a human who will attempt it.

It's not like I'm saying that this case represents a larger trend of waiters refusing service to Latinos or anything.
