A Deplorable Waiter Refused To Serve 4 Latina Women Until He Saw Proof Of Residency

It was girls’ day out, and Diana Carrillo had abandoned her desire to eat healthy well before she, her sister and two friends got to the Southern California restaurant. The destination: Saint Marc, an upscale spot in the seaside city of Huntington Beach, where Carrillo had been once before.
As the waiter walked up to the table, Carrillo figured she’d splurge on the grilled-cheese sandwich and pay the $2 up-charge to add some of the restaurant’s signature bacon. To start, maybe she’d share a watermelon and cheese plate with her sister and friends.
But the mood soured quickly after the waiter appeared. Before he could serve the four Latina women, he said, they needed to show proof of residency. “I need to make sure you’re from here,” he said.

YOU ARE FIRED!

Kent Bearden, the senior director of operations at Saint Marc, told The Washington Post that the waiter who had asked for the women’s IDs had been fired. It was the first time the employee had done anything like this, Bearden said, and he “had never received so much as a write-up” before.
“I don’t know if he had an agenda or not,” said Bearden. “My concern is he violated a company policy. We’re very specific about how we treat our guests. That individual did not treat a table of guests to the expectations that we set forth in that company policy, and that caused him to be terminated.”

No doubt that the waiter was a deplorable who felt “entitled” by TRUMPELSTILSKEN’s rhetoric to “enforce” the new hateful policy. Just wondering whether this is something travelers in the U.S. should be prepared to experience other places as well.

  1. Wow! Am I the only person paying attention here? Now I am starting to see why the Washington Post is being spurned by Trump.
    I was sign up for daily stories from the Washington Post. As the election drew near, it seemed that almost every story was a negative spin about Trump.
    Not being a Trump fan, and wanting to read actual news, I clicked on the unsubscribe button .

    Did you even read this story?????? The Washington Post dug this up from a Facebook posting from 8 days prior.
    It seems to me the once great American newspaper has stopped to trawling Facebook for sources and news stories. Everyone knows, of course, Facebook is an excellent source of news.
    Tsk Tsk Peter!

    1. And btw. the apology was also on the restuarant's FB page, but has been renoved since, probably because of fear for bad publicity.

  2. So what is wrong with publishing a story which is 8 days old? Carillo's FB post was on March 11. It took 8 days before the story made it into major newspapers, and now you can read it everywhere. And yes, I read the story- all of it. It's outrageous. If you are a patriot as you say you are, why not join the protest and resistance of government and the hatred they spread every day. You accuse me of spewing out hatred when I pick up stories and facts from the US.
