Woman Calls Out Barman For Describing Her As 'Girl By Herself' On Receipt
| Last updated
A woman has called out a barman for referring to her as 'girl by herself' on her receipt.
The woman, who goes by the handle @GotMiAAngel on social media, took to Twitter and shared a snap of her bill from a night out in Washington, DC recently.
In the post, she said that she was shocked when she looked at it and saw that her server had identified her as 'girl by herself'.
Hitting out at the barman, she captioned the snap: "This description is so disrespectful."
Since she shared the photo, the post has been liked more than 600,000 times, with lots of people taking her side.
Some of those who have commented said it was out of order for the barman to brand her with such a moniker.
One user asked: "Like why u pointing it out?? Like embarrassing you for what?"
And it really struck a chord with many others, who shared their own experiences of having been given less than flattering names in the past.
One wrote: "Some time ago, studying abroad in Italy, we went to get pizza in a restaurant where, instead of our names, they wrote the order for 'the strangers'."
Another said: "I bought an apartment last year and every page of the contract describes me as 'a married woman, alone'."
Responding to the post, one guy shared a snap of a receipt, which described him as the 'lil ugly dude'.
While another person revealed that they had been labelled the 'raspy voice guy' in the past.
However, some people came in to defend the server for his choice of language, saying it just makes sense.
Backing the barman's corner, one person said: "Really???? If you are without company, you are just that. And if you are dressed in a red dress, you are dressed in that colour....How else would you rather be described?"
While another added: "Why disrespectful? Seems a simple way to help the waiters identify guests they are serving.
"How else would you like them to describe you - colour of hair, clothes. Only in the US do you get so hung up on all this. We've got bigger issues to be thinking about than this petty one."
