When a restaurant receives a take out order, there is sometimes a section where they can denote the name of the customer. This section of the receipt can also be used to describe the customer. The worked is able to write red hat or green dress to make the customer easier to identify.
Unfortunately, this section can also be used to write something derogatory about the person placing the order. This recently happened in Oxford, Mississippi when an employee wrote the description, black b*tches in silver car, on the customer’s receipt.
Alexia Washington had placed a quick take-out order at a restaurant called, Who Dat’s, in Oxford last week. When she received her order, the offensive terms were clearly visible on her receipt.
She was surprised by the incident. “My car isn’t silver, for one,” said Washington. “For two, I wasn’t rude. I didn’t have any type of hostility. He didn’t have any hostility with me.”
The customer continued:
“I seek justice for this hate crime and I will no longer remain silent. I’ve lived in Oxford for 5 years and I’m still having to deal with this type of ignorance. I’m not a rude or hateful person. I was not rude when I was at this establishment and was greeted with this kind of service. I will not stand for it.”
Who Dat’s apologized to Washington and fired the employee in question. The chain’s owner, Wylie Coleman, said, “A Who Dat’s Drive-Thru employee was terminated immediately from their position upon recognition of a foul identifier used in a transaction ticket on June 7th, 2019. As of Monday June 10, 2019 they are banned from the property in accordance to our new by-laws.”
