Busser Grabs Diner’s Privates

Many years ago I worked as an assistant manager for a well known chain of restaurants located in the Washington, DC area. The chain was owned by Mormons who were very generous in helping handicapped and mentally challenged individuals by providing them jobs in the kitchen, and as bus boys and girls.

The particular Shoppe I worked at hired a lovely girl named Eunice. Eunice worked in the kitchen as a general helper and as a bus girl when needed. From time to time Eunice would show signs of stress, and behave oddly. These moments would generally pass, and her demeanor would return.

One spring afternoon during the Cherry Blossom Festival we were slammed, with a line out the door, and all tables were filled. I pulled Eunice from the kitchen and put her on bussing detail. She seemed to be doing well. I was working the “wheel” in the kitchen when all of a sudden I heard a loud commotion in the dining room. I hurried into the dining room, and couldn’t believe my eyes. There was Eunice, practically on top of a young father whose wife and daughter were sitting at the table with a look of horror on their faces. While clearing the table Eunice had reach down and grabbed the young man by his privates. She hung on as his chair tipped over and they both fell to the floor. The wife screamed, the other diners stood up to see what was happening. The Dining Room Manager and I rushed to pull Eunice off of the customer. Once removed she quickly regained composure and went into the kitchen. The police were called, but no charges were filed. I completed a long incident report for the home office. A few days later the DRM and I were interviewed by a company lawyer.

Eunice never returned to the store. We were never informed of the outcome. But it was a day to remember.

I’d give her a nice tip if she did that to me as long she didn’t squeeze too hard.

Tip, I'd give her the whole thing, not just the tip. Of course I'm hung like a pimple, so it's really just a lot of big talk on my part. Damn! I gott sell this VW Microbus and move out of mom's basement.

Oh dear, poor Eunice. I hope she didn’t get into too much trouble. It’s great that the religious community is reaching out to help others in need like this. I would never have thought that you could be a goodhearted person like this Jack. No offence but I first thought of you as a big headed, bullying jerk but now I can see that you are a really great person. Thanks for the story!

While it is great that organizations try to help out like this, it is also very important to remember that retards need lots of supervision. If you are going to hire lots of retards, you need people qualified to care for them, or to at least have tranquilizer darts in case they get uppity and out of control like this one.

how can you say that! I have never commented in all my year in reading these but I cannot just ignore this. calling someone a retard is uncivilized, rude, hurtful, and just plain wrong! it does not matter if someone has a disability both mentally or physically. yes although I agree that the employee should have not done what she did, she may have not been able to comprehend what she was doing at that exact moment or maybe she couldn't handle the stress. I believe that the other employees should have been trained in how to identify when her emotions were getting bad and how to handle them. but calling someone a retard is EXTREMELY uncalled for. and your comment about the tranquilizers? this is a WOMAN not an animal. you really need to learn some manners and you need to re-read your comments before you post. extremely rude and hurtful!

Once again it seems that some gormless twit has decided to impersonate me.

I am the real Peace Lover, not you. I believe in peace and love, and I will kick the ass of anyone who says differently!


Peace Lover April 27, 2010 at 5:41 pm

Oh, and I forgot to say that I love everyone.

Well he's right on his last comment!

I think I like the fake Peace Lover way better. Who gives a shit about loving peace when you've got a good sense of humor?
