Three women dining at restaurant/bar Chilly D's Sports Lounge in the Cameo Club Casino in Stockton, CA were shocked to discover their server had identified them as "fat girls" on their receipt at the end of a meal. According to News 10, a server named Jeff entered the term into the restaurant's computer instead of using oh, say, their table number, and perhaps was not aware that it would be printed on the women's receipt? Anyway, the customers turned down the restaurant's offer to give them a discount on their meal. Owner Maggie Lewis has since responded to the incident on Facebook, saying "Joking/insulting an employee or a customer is INTOLERABLE in our establishment."

This is not the first time insults have appeared on receipts: customers dining at Papa John's and Chick-fil-A have been identified by racial slurs, and other receipts have identified customers by their level of bitchiness or the fact that they were "high as shit." Below, the local news explores the "fat girls" controversy.
