Most parents have experienced their young children getting restless when waiting for a meal in a restaurant.
But not many get the bill at the end of it with a message describing their offspring as a 'little f*****'.
This is what happened to parents Craig and Kimberley Cartin at a Mexican restaurant in Halifax, West Yorkshire, where they received the receipt which had 'Thankyyou littell f*****' written on it.
Visiting the brand new eaterie, called Cactus Joe's, on its opening weekend the family had already been frustrated by slow service and poor food, which caused hungry two-year-old Molly to complain. 'Unbelievably offensive': The family's receipt - the obscenity is the last item on the bill

That's thinking--spend your money to sue someone with none.
...and the spelling is horrendous.
Looking at that ticket, it seems that the offending employee was giving a farewell FU to the job as she was going out the door anyway. This didn’t have anything to do with the restaurant.
A few years ago my husband and I were traveling with our 10 month old. We stopped in an unfamiliar town for the night and walked into what must have been the town’s best resturaunt. We had not realized how nice the resturaunt was until we had been seated. We were starved. We told the waiter we just wanted to eat and run quickly. He took our order and we tried to keep the baby quiet. When our meals came and the baby was fed, one of the wait staff offered to take our rambuncious babe over to the wait station. They blew up balloons and played with the baby until our meal was over. Obviously we didnt have desert. They got a humungous tip and we went home intact.
Guess they didn’t leave a tip.....
I love kids coming to the restaurant where I work. I love to see families out enjoying life together.
the idea of a Mexican retaurant in West Yorkshire — is surreal.
Assuming the facts in the story are true, it seems as if the manager did everything he could to remedy the situation.
I’m curious as to why the parents would want a photo of their precious little snowflake out in the news/internet.
Parents motives are very suspect to me.
How do we know she wasn’t behaving like a “littell” (sic) Biden ?
I expect that kind of language at Denny’s—but not here!
Now how could anyone say that about sweet little Molly?
I leave NO tip for that kind of BS.
LOL. What do you expect in this age of text messaging?
Here's what he wrote:
That tipping thing we are not used to it, it just seemed wrong to us, but we had to go along with it, is it like that all over the USA?
Well, at least they didn’t charge extra for it...
The couple in question said the food wasn’t any good but they are hardly objective. I wonder if it is any good.
In NYC/Boston, I would never think of *going* out without a wad of small bills for tips. It’s how it is. Less so in smaller cities.
