A customer celebrating Father’s Day at the Bohemian Hall and Beer Garden yesterday got a nasty surprise when he looked at his receipt.
Curtis Mays of Seacliff, Long Island had just finished his meal at the 29-19 24th Ave. restaurant when he noticed upon–receiving the check–that he was paying for a well-done burger with cheddar, mayo— and a glob of spit, abc7NY reported.
Mays had enjoyed an ordinary meal with his granddaughter and daughter at the Beer Garden before he noticed the message.
Mays quickly called over his waitress, who denied writing the note.
The manager fired the waitress and offered Mays a refund for the meal, but Mays was still horrified.
“He was saying, ‘How can we compensate you?'” Mays told abc7NY. “I was like, ‘How can you compensate somebody for spitting on your food? I ate this already.’”
Bohemian Hall’s manager told the news outlet that he doubted the chef had actually spat in the burger, but that he understood Mays’ concern.
