TGIF played a cruel joke on a Muslim woman, what do you think of what happened?

Haters gonna hate? Yeah, pretty much.

This Muslim woman asked the Garland, Texas TGI Fridays staff to remove bacon from her salad because she’s Muslim. But it got weird after that.

Super nice because the asked for special instructions? Sure
Since the salad is made to order, leaving off an ingredient isn't exactly difficult.
Server was cold? Perhaps they weren't "super nice". Perhpas they were actually quite bitchy.
Someone put bacon pieces in a straw? Yeah, I don't believe that for a moment.

Why can't you believe it. Crap like that happens all the time. More than people know. Sometimes it's something nastier than bacon going into your food.

I worked in a restaurant where servers would spit in customers' drinks if they didn't like the customer. And sometimes, they didn't like the customer just because. It had nothing to do with the actual customer. So yeah, shit like this happens.

All I kept thinking was what if she asked due to an allergy and not a religious reason? They could have KILLED her.

This happens all the time when you don't do it for religious reasons.


Many servers are just asses.

Nah, this isn't a case of religious discrimination.  TGIF treats all of its customers crappy.  We stopped going there long ago because of it.

 People don't realize that other than just plain disrespectful that those of us who's bodies are not used to swine can become very sick from it. I get sick when my neighbors bar b q swine. Just the smell makes me have a gag reflex and it's a smell you can't get out of your nose.

When my husband was in the refugee camp in Saudi for 2 years one year during Ramadan the Saudi government served the camp swine. They all knew immediately that something was different and could not figure out what they were eating. Many including my husband got very sick. A man who is considered somewhat a scholar got up in front of everyone and made the announcement that everyone should stop eating because they had been served swine. The camp went crazy. The Saudi kingdom admitted it but called it a "mistake" (yeah right)... they offered a public apology.
