My waitress got accused of racism today!

Yep, a Caucasian woman in her 50's came in, we we're very busy at lunch, 1 waitress, which usually can handle 20-25 tables at once as long as they are a bit staggered. In any case this woman got her set up, was told the specials, got her drink, was here MAYBE 7 minutes. The waitress was running food to earlier tables, when all of a sudden this woman, who had a grandchild with her, goes off, jumps up and accuses my waitress of discriminating against women. I was standing by the register when shoe storms up and starts yelling at me about being discriminated against. I told her to get the &%*****!!%^&*( out of my restaurant and get back on her meds! This was a setup as something earily similiar happened about 3 weeks ago. A waitress walked out because I wouldn't accept a kids ID that I deemed fake, he was from the Drug and Alcohol rehab center accross the street. He had been kicked out. wanted to sit here and drink, I said you can eat but no beer, the waitress waited about 10 minutes, walked out saying I discriminated against drug addicts and people with alcohol problems. She went on some website, ran an amazing BS story, went on our Facebook page trashed us, turned us in to the BBB, wrote a letter, that is, the Health dept, had to answer to them, as she made ridiculous claims, etc. etc. Tried to trash my reputation ad naseum...now this today, do you think coincidence?

    Discriminating against women is not racism.

    Why does a woman complaining have something to do with your waitress?
     
    I don't see a connection.
     
    Have you begun legal precedings against your ex-employee?

    Did she try the ribs?  I'm sure all would have been fine if she just tried the damn #*^&%^&@%&@# ribs.

    Doesnt sound like you were accused of racism at all. I certainly understand the trials and tribulations of running( owning) a business, but I do take exception to you telling people to get back on "their meds". That is dicriminatory in my opinion. You perceive people that are contrary to be off.Not a good thing in your business. Call the cops, stand by your convictions as an owner, but dont, publicly call people names.

    If the "get the @&#%"out of my restaurant" didn't offend her, I doubt the crack about the meds did either. If it did, @&#% her. pb

    It wasn't racism you were being accused of , it was discrimination ... in the end, you'll never win with an argument against a wacko.
     
    There is an ample supply of wackos, that I am not sure your waitress needed to cause this one (or those that are sure to follow) to add to your day.
     
    I think the root of acception is to "accept"

    I meant to say exception...My only point was that getting in to a verbal fight with a customer, especially one that is obviously a whack job, is not a good idea. There is a  store in town that makes the most superb chocolates, but the owner is such a jerk I wont set foot in there. Neither will my friends.

    Are you joking?

    Tom,
      Please calm down a bit. I checked all of the posts here, and I don't think anyone posted an attack on you personally. what I read are offers of advice and opinions, which you asked for in you original post.
    Lighten up my friend, and keep your wrath for the original offender.
    BTW, I am not sure we have enough info here to connect the waitress/doper incident to the irate woman customer?? Is there another chapter to this story that might fill in the blanks?

    Got it Al...The story about the waitress/doper is a long one, almost bizarre. From the reaction here to the original post, I'm going to let it die!

    Its 74 and sunny here in Milwaukee today. A nice breeze, too. Perhaps I will go fly a kite.
    You have insulted me on a few occasions, and this time, sir, will be the last.
