Okay, so this post is simply me venting. My husband and I went to Chilis for dinner, and seated next to us were two gentlemen, one which had what appeared to be a mental disability. The waitress served him his food, and then stepped a mere 3 feet away to the drink station, where she proceeded to make fun of him. She saw me looking at her with what was probably a shocked expression, and went right on laughing at him. Fortunately his back was to her, so he didn't have to witness this!! A few minutes later the hostess walked up to her, and she made fun of him again!! I know I should have stood up and said something, but honestly I was so shocked I didn't know what to do. I felt paralyzed. When I got home I called the manager, and complained about the incident. She seemed to be truly upset by what I told her. I just wish that I had said something to this girl while she was laughing. I am the proud cousin of a young man with Downs Syndrome, and I know the struggles that he has had all his life with ignorant people like this horrible girl. What in the world is wrong with people?? I wish it hadn't taken me soo off guard, because I know that I should have said something!! Thank you for listening to me.
