Man's burger receipt from New York restaurant read “please spit in it”

After enjoying a Father’s Day meal at a beer and burger restaurant in Astoria, Queens, a man named Curtis Mays says he looked down at his receipt, which read: one cheddar cheeseburger, well done, toasted bun, “please spit in it, too.” Worst nightmare? Worst nightmare.

Mays tells New York’s ABC-11 that, because he’d already finished off the burger, he felt like he was going to throw up. Of course, he confronted his server, who he says had been pleasant up to that point. When Mays asked why she would add the um, special instructions to his order, the server said she didn’t do it. But she also admitted that she was the one who put in the order and printed the receipt.

The server was swiftly fired and the manager of The Bohemian Hall And Beer Garden comped the family’s meal. “He was saying, ‘How can we compensate you?’ I was like, ‘How can you compensate somebody for spitting on your food? I ate this already,” Mays told ABC-11. The manager also tried to reassure Mays that it’s unlikely the kitchen actually followed the instructions.

Look, food service is a tough gig and working weekends sucks, but clearly there’s no excuse for the server’s behavior. She could learn to deal with stress and job pressures like the rest of us do: with meditation apps, walks during our lunch breaks, and day-off binge drinking.
