In an effort he said was to remember the names of the patrons he was serving, He decided to use their skin color to help him remember which table the receipt belonged to.
Barnard Bradfield, a 19-year-old African-American waiter at Bubba’s Bar and Grill on Washington, forgot the names of the women he was waiting on during a busy Saturday night service. He identified them as “black girls” on the check to keep track of the table.
Clearly, the 19-year-old said he intended no harm.
“I was trying to remember the ladies’ names but it wasn’t right, of course. I just was trying to remember their names so I didn’t give them a wrong order or anything,” Bradfield said.
“I laughed loud as f*ck! This sh*t is lowkey normal,”“it is. I’ve done it so many times.”When questioned about whether such descriptions were “on the ones that y’all give to ppl?”“If they don’t give you a name and it’s busy, you just gotta go with the obvious!”“At tables it’s by table # but behind the bar I’ve put everything ‘old guy’ ‘pink hair.’”“This is why I will no longer go to any place on Washington Ave!!! This (is) not the only place out there that does this,”“Are they putting different ingredients in our (black girls) food or what?!!!”
