Village Inn Staff Spit in Food for Supporting Obama!!
My dad sent me this email this morning, I guess last night my sister was harassed by the staff of Village Inn Restraunt (Albuquerque NM) They are lucky that I live in California or I'd be down there right now causing a shitstorm
"At about 2:00 a.m. this morning my daughter, Jessica went after work to your restaurant at 2017 Menaul Blvd. here in Albuquerque.
Their waiter came to the table and asked them whether they supported McCain or Obama in this election. They told him they were supporting Obama, and the waiter became verbally abusive and made some disparaging comments about "people on welfare" that were apparently directed at my daughter's friend because he is black.
When their food came out, my daughter noticed that the cook came out of the kitchen, and he and the waiter both stopped their work and appeared to watching my daughter and her friend closely and laughing as they began eating. After a moment, my daughter found a substance on her fried eggs - it appeared that someone had blown their nose in the eggs. Regrettably, she was too tired to
think of taking the eggs with the foreign substance with her to serve as evidence in a lawsuit.
She asked to speak with the manager. The manager looked at the mucus-like substance and told her it was charcoal from the grill. She found that she had lost her appetite, and she and her friend left. As a final insult, when her friend paid for their meal (if I had been there I would not have paid, but he is apparently more forgiving), the manager took a $20.00 bill from him, put it in the register, and closed the drawer - her friend had to stop the manager and tell him that he wanted the several dollars of change that he was owed.
Our family will never eat at a Village Inn restaurant again. My daughter is making a report to the Department of Health (I worked for the Health Department for some years and can help her make her report where it will get the attention it deserves.) We are also contacting the Better Business Bureau and the local print media and TV stations, and we will be telling all our friends and extended family about this event and recommending that they also stay away from Village Inn from now on."
