Three Stockton, Calif. women said their dinner at a Chilly D's Sports Lounge was ruined on Thursday, after they were described as "fat girls" on their check.
Christine Duran said she was shocked, as she was the first the view the check, ABC affiliate News 10 reports.
"I got the bill, and I was like, why does the receipt say, 'fat girls?'" Duran said.
Her friends, Christina Huerta and Isabel Robles, thought she was joking when she told them, she said.
"I was laughing at her, and she was like, 'I'm serious.' I'm like, 'No, it does not say fat girls, let me see it,'" Huerta said.
"[Huerta] was like, 'You're lying,'" Duran said. "And I was like, 'No, I'm serious. Look at it.' She was like, 'fat girls?'"
"I was like, 'Give me that,' and I'm looking at it. I was like, 'Oh, heck no,'" Robles said.
After speaking with the server, who denied being the one who typed the insult on the check, and claimed that the "Jeff" whose name was on the bill had gone home, the three woman demanded to speak to a manager.
According to News 10, they were not willing to accept the 25 percent, then 50 percent discount that the manager offered.
Despite being embarrassed, Huerta took a photo of the check as proof of their story. Although some may find the incident humorous, the women didn't think it was funny.
"It's not," Robles said as she started to cry. "It's not funny. I can just see it over and over again, and I still can't believe it. They labeled us 'fat girls.' It's just something we got to deal with."
Chilly D's Manager Jimmy Seimers said told News 10 that the man by the name of Jeff is now suspended and will most likely be fired pending an investigation.
The restaurant published an apology on their Facebook page Saturday.
Several managers at the Cameo Club Casino insist that the incident is an isolated one involving a "relatively new"employee.
However, the Huffington Post notes that similar incidents have been documented at other establishments.
In January, a Papa John's employee described a customer as "lady chinky eyes" on her receipt, while in March, a Radio Shack employee described a customer as an "ugly itch" from "tattooville" in "Ghettohood, USA" on her receipt.
