So, I finally get my wife out of the house today since it's the first day off I've had in over two weeks and we ended up at the mall to go to Bath and Body. We stopped at Buffalo Wild Wings for dinner.We were seated in a booth next to a table that had a man who obviously had no business being alone. He was badly deformed,(pike from star trek bad) in a wheelchair and was mentally challenged as well. He waved at us when we sat down and smiled real big and said hi. We apparently had some form of conversation during our meal, but I couldn't understand most words he spoke, but he was smiling the whole time. I don't know why he was there alone in a mall.
When the server came with his bill, he fumbled with his wallet and pulled out some money, not knowing how much it was. "I've got this one, it has a five on it. And this one has the number one." The server told him several times it wasn't enough money and asked him to search his pockets for more. He wasn't fully understanding. Then she asked him three times if he had a credit or debit card. He wasn't comprehending and handed her his money. Her voice got louder as she explained to him it wasn't enough. She said she was done talking to him and she was going to get the manager.
I was pretty heated at this point and so was my wife. The manager on duty, some late teen punk comes storming out of the kitchen and I stopped him before he got to the table. I stood up and told him to settle the F down and I'd pay for his meal and to go back doing whatever he was doing. I told he and the server you don't talk like that to someone who has the challenges he does. Are you effin kidding me? I also told them I was filing a complaint with the ADA on that guy's behalf, which I've already done.
We helped wheel him out and stayed with him till his ride came to pick him up five minutes later. I don't think he understood what happened, but I finallly figured out his name was Darryl. This under twenty generation better figure out how to talk to talk to people and how to deal with adversity. But they can get their ears gauged and look unemployable
It was nothing to help this guy out, just freakin nine dollars, so no big deal at all. I'm just steamed that I had to witness such an attrocity. I'm mad at BWW and whoever dropped him off and left him alone. His diminished mental capacity could have endangered him at some point.
