Party Of Jew? Your Table Is Now Ready....


Saw this in The Post and just had to comment on it. A server at a restaurant designates the customers at a certain table by printing "Jew couple" on their bill.

... Who does that?

The manager said that it was not meant in a derogatory fashion and that the restaurant uses phrases like that, "as a form of identification."

Gonna have to call bullshit on that. I haven't worked in a restaurant in decades, but I know every table is numbered. That is how the customers are identified. Not with religious, racial, or other epithets.

As if that wasn't bad enough, the couple was apparently asked to leave after making a fuss about the incident. Uhhh... you put something like that on a customer's bill (intended or not) and you damn well better be expecting a bit of a "fuss". The phrase also appeared on the gentleman's credit card statement....

The article said that the server guilty of the act has "moved on". Why the restaurant can't own up and admit that the little shit was fired in an attempt to at least seem like they're taking a hard stance about this is beyond me.

Here are some stereotypical phrases Parkhill's Waterfront Grill says that you can use upfront to help your server "identify" your party:
- Loud Obnoxious Black Family
- Flaming Trio Of Fudge-Packers
- Wet Back Family Reunion

You get the idea....
