A British restaurant employee decided to curse out patrons via receipt. Here’s what happened: A party of ten who were dining at Joe Delucci’s Steak & Pasta House, an Italian-American restaurant in Lichfield were allegedly given poor service during a meal. Then they complained. Then they were handed the receipt pictured at right, which lists “Suck my d*** f*** face” as an appetizer — right above the buffalo wings and fish cakes they ordered as appetizers. According to patron Claire Watkin:
“I couldn’t believe it. The bill read ‘fish cakes’, which one of us had for a starter, and it was written right above it - absolutely disgusting language. […] We actually booked the table for 8 o’ clock in the evening, by the time they had taken our order it was quarter to nine and we didn’t actually receive our food until quarter past 10. […] I’d like a written apology from the restaurant and I’d also like some compensation. […] I think that the way that we’ve been spoken to is absolutely outrageous.”
The owner promises an investigation — and we’re getting the sneaking suspicion that some of the employees at Delucci’s might not be the smartest eggs in the basket as a result.
