"Fat?" That's a ompliment. Those "girls" are morbidly obese.

FTA:
"I was laughing at her, and she was like, 'I'm serious.' I'm like, 'No, it does not say fat girls, let me see it,'"

"[Huerta] was like, 'You're lying,'" Duran said. "And I was like, 'No, I'm serious. Look at it.' She was like, 'fat girls?'"

"I was like, 'Give me that,' and I'm looking at it. I was like, 'Oh, heck no,'"

"He was like, 'Well, I can do 50 percent,' and we were just like, are you serious?" Huerta said.


So, they're fat and they barely understand the language of the country they've lived in their entire lives.

/are they single?

When I worked at Red Lobster, one couple who came in frequently had to be 400 lbs+ each. We'd have to sneakily find the armless chairs and move them into place at a table before seating them.

One of the stupidest waitresses I ever worked with was waiting on them one night and asked if they'd like any dessert. When they declined, she said, "No? But you look like dessert eaters."

You know, it's not really that hard not to make fun of your paying customers.

I liked to make notes like "red sweater" or "pretty earrings" personally. So simple, so not offensive. "Coked up grabby hands" made it out once, but he was too coked up too notice.

Also, it is common knowledge that fat people don't tip. If they have any money left it is spent on desserts and cleaning out the after-dinner mints.

In other words, the check with the three women next to them said "hot girls".

Having been to Stockton I just want to say I am shocked! I mean "fat girls" is entirely vague and descriptive of the vast majority of Stockton's female population. This server should be severely disciplined, in the future receipts should read "fat girls, bad tattoo of what may be Jesus on left shoulder, lime green tube top" so we know exactly to whom it refers.

Maybe if more fatties were called out for being fatties there's be less fatties.

I doubt it...I'm sure some people would be hurt and do something about it, but twice as many people would:

Quell their shame with comfort food.

--or--

Wear "fat" like a badge of honor and make it something that they're good at.

Do fat Stockton girls tip when not called on their fatness? Might be worth giving up the imaginary $4 for the real satisfaction.

When I was a bartender our POS system did not print whatever you named the check. So you were free to name your tabs "c*nts" or "lower lip sticks out" all you wanted. It was actually helpful, especially when working with another bartender and you need to cash out a tab the other guy started. "Hmmmmm, 'obnoxious fat chick.' Ah, this must be her."

Then they changed the POS system. Out of habit, we all still used insults to describe our tabs. I got very, VERY lucky when I was busted for naming a tab "hot redhead." She laughed and even went out sightseeing with me after we closed. But what if it had been one of these fat girls? I'm not a fat-hater (at least not to the rage-inducing levels of many Farkers), but it is and identifying characteristic that helps you keep your sh*t in order when you have 35 tabs running and everyone is screaming shot orders at you while the Beastie Boys are playing so loudly that your teeth are bouncing.

Anyway, my point is that this is a very common practice, and instead of suing or whatever, maybe these girls should lose some weight. It should be a wake-up call, not an offense. Everyone already thinks you're fat - this employee just used it as a way of keeping your tab separate from the skinny couple next to you.

While I completely agree that overweight people should lose weight because they'll not only look better but be healthier, I do not agree that insulting or degrading them is the way to go about doing it. Not saying that's necessarily what you were implying.

I'm not heavy, but I have friends that are, and I feel bad for them when people insult them because of their weight. Should they lose weight? Absolutely, but that doesn't mean they should be treated like dirt either.

Just my $0.02.

Well they acted like they were shocked to hear it and since they seem to hang in a three girl fatty support group, maybe they were.

They also said they hope these three women will return to the casino, so that the managers can apologize in person they will spend/lose more money.

I feel the same to a point. But if the person is 500 lbs and climbing, can't/won't get out of bed, and doesn't take any initiative to change...I no longer care about their feelings.

I've been working a job where I deliver specialty beds to hospitals, including those meant for patients over 500 lbs. It astounds me how they have so little willpower that they refuse to diet, knowing they're a drain on their family and friends.

People are assholes. On the other end of the spectrum, a friend of mine was extremely thin. Unhealthy thin. Probably-eating-disorder thin.

We'd go out and something like a half-dozen dudes a night would yell at her to eat a sandwich.

Ugh, people.

At some point you need something to move you out of denial about your weight.
I promise these girls dont think they are fat.
I had my moment 18 months ago.
I have lost 75#'s since then and have added alot of muscle.
Still need to lose another 50ish and I will be happy with where my weight is.
If this happened to me when I was larger (hell, even if it happened to me now), my feelings would be hurt, but I would know it true and move on.
I am a big boy. both literally (for now at least) and emotionally. I can take it.
These cows need to graze on some grass for a while, or eat more another type of sausage.

/I can say that cause I am a fatty too.
//Its like how other races can call each other offensive names and its endearing.

The manager apologized, but his first reaction was to offer 25 percent off the bill. The ladies were shocked.

"He was like, 'Well, I can do 50 percent,' and we were just like, are you serious?" Huerta said.

did the server lie? No. Going to the media to advertise how you got called fat, when you are undeniably fat, doesn't get much sympathy from me. And oh, girls--everyone else calls you fat too. Just not in print. Deal with it.
