Reminds me of the rich jerks I observed in Newport RI.
I find the assault on free thought disturbing,
I find the willingness to give it up frightening.

    If he came in again the help should spit in his food

    The server should put his name and pic on facebook so everyone can spit on his food.

    I heart Newport Beach.

    I love that place.

    Really I would think you would be a PB kind of guy.

    yeah, I like it there too. But I've always liked Newport. Someday (hell, maybe this year if I can afford it) I'm gonna rent one of those beachhouses on the boardwalk for a week and hang out. I'll give you a call if I do and you can drive in from the hinterlands. :)

    The restaurant's statement reveals that their hard receipt copies do not, in fact, match the photo

    More BS

    Sucks it's not real. Could have been a teaching moment.

    Make sure to check out Balboa Island and maybe even rent a place there.

    Yes especially when the server spit in his food.

    Yeah, if the guy ever existed.

    It amazes me you guys aren't embarassed. I would be...but hey, that's just me.
  • fishingcomicfishingcomic Senior Member Posts: 26,508 Senior Member
    Why should I be embarrassed? Imagine my surprise when a Blog does not prove to be a reputable source.

    Does it change the fact that if someone were to do this, they would be a **** of the highest order and would deserve to have his food spit upon for a lifetime?

    At least Huffington post was ethical enough to issue a correction to the story.
    True Food Kitchen spokesperson Jami Ragan said that the restaurant's copies revealed the actual receipt to be for $33.54, not $133.54, with a tip of $7 (slightly more than 20%). The real receipt was also absent any "GET A REAL JOB" notation.

    The blogger's photoshop skills are pretty amazing.

    Why should you be embarassed? For jumping on this because you want this to be true and not waiting to find out if it were.

    Such a guy would be a **** of the highest order...but such a guy doesn't exist.

    I am pretty sure that somewhere in America this guy exists.

    Okay maybe I am mildly nonplussed. But it is not like I was staking my reputation on the stories authenticity.

    Huffington should not have published it before it was sourced and confirmed. But like I said they have updated the story since.

    can we note for the record that I didn't comment until after it was debunked

    good lord Steven, how pretentious can you be . . .


    I didn't lose a second of sleep over commenting on a "news" article that turned out to be false.

    To do so would be to place too much importance over such a trivial matter.

    Not very. Should I work on it?
