A waiter at a Southern Californian restaurant has been fired, after he asked four female customers to “prove their residency” before he would serve them.
Diana Carrillo posted about her experience at Saint Marc Pub-Cafe, in Huntington Beach, on Facebook on March 11.
Her post has now been shared over 1,700 times.
“My sister and my friend were seated first and the waiter asked them for their ‘proof of residency’ when they ordered a drink,” she wrote.
"My friend in disbelief repeated what he said and his response was, 'Yeah, I need to make sure you're from here before I serve you' (sic)."
Diana said the question was repeated when she and her friend were seated.
