Customer OF Pizza Hut in Singapore Saw "Pink Fat Lady" on the bottom of her Receipt

I just read about how a woman, a customer ordered Pizza for take-out from Pizza Hut. When she got home she saw at the bottom of the receipt "Pink Fat Lady". She posted it on the Facebook of Singapore branch of Pizza Hut.and said that even if she knows she was fat it hurt still. She said it was not nice to be described that way by the staff and as a customer she should be respected. She paid for it and does not get it free. She was hoping for an apology.

After posting it I read so many remarks and some people who were so unfeeling and made it look as if it was her fault. She should not take it personally. Well it really depends on the person.

Some people said in business it should not have been and respect is number one in a business.

As a person also plus size I would feel hurt and maybe call the branch. It has happened to me once. Someone was trying to sell me something and I nearly did. But the problem was she suddenly mentioned my weight and size which really had nothing to do what she was selling in the store. So I told her you will lose many customers that way and luckily the manager/supervisor was there so I told them.

I mean we try but sometimes we are just blessed with this body and it does hurt when someone says something bad or even jokes you about it.

What do you think? I don't know how to post the link on here lol. Hope this is ok

Joking about somebody's body or weight is not good. Feelings are same for everyone.. I mean I will feel really bad if somebody tells a bad joke about my body. So I will never joke about somebody else's weight or body!

As for the business aspect of it, yes, it was very foolish. I like how she says she does not get it for free. The employee might want to keep their opinions to themselves, while on-the-job.

Pretty rude really...maybe they should introduce a number system

somoe said they should have written that on the carbon copy which they remove which would be ok as long as she did not see it. Still rude to me

I think an apology was due the customer, but then again anyone insensitive enough to write that on a receipt in the first place likely isn't going to apologize either. If I were the boss, the employee would be looking for another job.

For me, I've been hearing such kind of mentioning to people in the stores and especially restaurants for plus size people, however this is the very first time seeing on the voucher slip which is really unethical because the cashier must know that this slip is going to give to customer who might see it. Nowadays the service quality of the shops are being poor unbearably.

How unprofessional! I read the story and it looks like Pizza Hut has officially apologized. They are also looking into who wrote that on her bill.

Good on you for speaking out against the prejudice overweight people face every day! I've pinned your post to my Diversity board on PInterest, because people come in all shapes and sizes & we ought to celebrate that fact :)

Thank you. There is a time for joking but in business you must be professional

A clerk asked me if my wife was my mother in a men's clothing store once. This what the pinnacle of stupidity for a salesperson.

That is such a horrible thing to do to anyone. Karma will visit that person in one way or another.

It's very rude and unprofessional. There are far better ways to describe someone or how about do your job and ask the name?

paperdaisyflower7 wrote on October 20, 2014, 6:36 AM

yea they could have asked the name so when ready they could just call out that Miss So & So order is ready

paperdaisyflower7 wrote on October 20, 2014, 6:37 AM

That was rude they could subtlety ask how you two were related
