A New York man who was enjoying a Father’s Day meal with his daughter and grandchild says his receipt directed kitchen staff to spit in his food.

WABC reports Curtis Mays was at the Bohemian Hall and Beer Garden in Astoria when the incident occurred. Mays says he asked for his receipt and subsequently noticed the extra language, which said, “PLEASE SPIT IN IT TOO.”

“I asked her, ‘Why would you do this?’ and she couldn’t explain it,” Mays said. “She said she didn’t do it. So I was like, ‘Who prints out the receipt?’ So she said, ‘I take it up there and print it myself.’ ‘So you did it? Why are you lying about it?’ She just walked away.”

The manager of the store apparently fired the server immediately and Mays got a refund. The manager said he’d never had a problem with this server before, but nonetheless, her behavior was unacceptable.
