A woman has gone viral after she shared how her server described her on her receipt.
And it turns out she's not the only person to have experienced this...
Sometimes, it's nice to have a bit of alone time.
Time for self-care and self-love, with no distractions or interruptions.
That could be visiting the salon, going shopping or watching a movie...
Or even going for dinner- it's completely normal!
Well, that's what one woman thought until she went for a solo dinner and left feeling embarrassed and disrespected by her server...
After he wrote a customer description on her restaurant receipt...
And after sharing it online, it's prompted quite the debate...
With some people sharing their own restaurant descriptions.

I bought an apartment last year and every page of the contract describes me as "a married woman, alone."— Charismatic Megafauna (@CharismaticMeg2) April 17, 2021

Years ago, I was at the drs office updating my info with the receptionist. I had a new address and I was now divorced. I told her I was paying cash because I didn’t have insurance and was out of work. She was like “you’re divorced, no job AND no insurance???” Damn. pic.twitter.com/V5jUpyoYOf— M.A.C.

While others argue the description was truthful, rather than disrespectful...
really???? If you are without company, you are just that. And if you are dressed in a red dress, you are dressed in that color....How else would you rather be described?— Bamanyisa Patrick Abbooki (@patmwema) April 17, 2021

So, why do all these people have descriptions on their receipts?
Well, according to bartenders there's actually a pretty good reason for it...
Workers within the industry have explained that bartenders often label receipts with visible details about the customer in order to help with service efficiency.
By labelling the receipt with a clear description of who the diner is, it helps to identify them quicker.
So, for example, if you turn up to dinner wearing a bright red shirt, it's likely your receipt could be labeled as "woman in red shirt."
Which as long as it's not offensive, actually makes sense.
So, you're wondering how they described the woman?
She was described as "girl by herself."
What do you think?
This description is so disrespectful😭😭😭😭😭 pic.twitter.com/x9m8J8IeEh— 🍰The Cake Lady🍰 (@GotMiAAngel) April 17, 2021
Is it disrespectful or is it truthful?
