A bartender at Chilly D's Restaurant in Stockton, California served his customers more than they ordered when he typed 'Fat Girls' on the bill to identify them, according to ABC News.

Three friends went to the restaurant for dinner on Thursday, according to the report, and they were shocked to see the insulting bill land on the table.

"Why does this receipt say 'fat girls?'" one of the customers, Christine Duran, told the news station. ABC's News10 reported that the two friends, Christina Huerta and Isabel Robles, thought Duran was joking at first.

Not so. A picture of the bill posted online shows the server's name as Jeff with the words 'Fat Girls' below and a total of $25.50.

She said the server told his customers that his name was not Jeff and he wasn't responsible. He said a bartender with that name must have typed the insult but he had left for the evening.

The women demanded to see a manager. However, Duran said the manager smirked while he heard the story like he was trying not to laugh.

The restaurant offered the women a 25% discount and then a 50% discount but they refused to pay and went to the media to share the story.

Robles began to tear up as she spoke on television, saying she knew people would think the story was funny but it isn't.

"I can just see it over and over again, and I still can't believe it," she told News10.

The manager of the bar, Jimmy Seimers, apologized to the women via ABC and said Jeff had been suspended pending an investigation.

Restaurants might want to consider sticking with a numbered system to track its customers, as this isn't the first time a reminder note has offended a diner.

A Papa John's employee in New York City described a customer as "lady chinky eyes" on a receipt in January and was promptly fired.

The New York Daily News headline for the story spelled out what many were surely thinking. "Here's a tip: Get some manners, bro."
