I was working on a slow Friday night in a small family owned B.B.Q. place in Cincinnati, Ohio. It was getting close to closing time when a family of 3 (mom, dad and a small child) came in and sat down at one of my booths. It was almost 10pm and I thought nothing of the fact that the child was wanting to lay down in the booth.
I took the order for the parents and asked if the little one would be having anything… they responded “no.” I brought salads and bread to the table as well as butter for the bread. I continued to do my closing duties when I noticed the mother pull out a large butter tub like you have at home. Wondering why our butter (which was the same) was not to her liking, I watched. WRONG THING TO DO!!! There was no butter in the tub!! It was empty… The tub was for the child, whom I thought was just tired, to throw up in!! WHY??? If you know you have a sick child… get your food to go!!
