Restaurant Identified Customers as 'Blackchick' and 'OtherBlack Chick'

Last Sunday, Sylvia Faulkner and her mother went to Your Pie, a pizza joint in West Ashley, SC, then things got a little racially-insensitive up in that bitch.
They were celebrating Sylvia's birthday with some pizza, but immediately after placing their orders, Faulker's mother glanced down and noticed "BLACKCHICK" printed on her receipt. The daughter then proceeded to look at her receipt, where she saw "OTHERBLACK CHICK" also printed on the paper. The cashier responsible, Courtney Nowell, is also an African-American. The restaurant's owner, Cary Chastain, says that it's all a big misunderstanding, "She described the customers the best way she could, and she was in a very big hurry." "She realizes now that was a big mistake and certainly against the way we train everyone to work here and that will not happen again," Chastain said. Chastain also said that the incident occurred during a rare 4 p.m. rush and Nowell says she was just trying to keep the line moving. "The first thing I saw was the color of her skin, which was kind of wrong [...] it's not an offensive matter or anything, cause I'm African-American as you can see, and I didn't mean no offense in the matter at all," Nowell said....."It just took so much extra work for her to type those letters in than to just put in Sylvia, which is far less letters than 'other black chick,' " Sylvia said.
The restaurant says it usually issue patrons a card with a celebrity's name on it, but they were all out that afternoon. In the end, Sylvia and her mother ate free, as the restaurant comped their meals. Which reminds us, Burger King workers are rude as hell!
