Far more “anti-” opinions than I imagined there would be.
Not sure how many are hostility/impatience toward the disabled, how many are sincerely concerned about possible lawsuits, and how many use “health and safety” (like “hostile work environment”) to get out of doing stuff they just don’t feel like doing…
Why is it always someone else’s fault. You have a disabled son you have had him for 17 years and you still expect organisations to pamper to you. He is your son it is a shame but this restaurant has no obligation to do one off food items and they are not responsible it he chokes as someone has pointed out already There must have been soup, hummus, ect on the menu so why could he not have this. Or take your own food for him. Stop with the whining, take charge of the situation and deal with it yourself it will be a lot let hassle in the long run (…)
At first I thought “that is not very nice”, but when I read the comments I have to say I agreed with them. What if the child would have choked on a lump? We own a restaurant ourselves, and my partner just said “I would not want a potentially unclean utensil in my kitchen, just as I do not prepare food in my kitchen somebody has brought in off the street.” Restaurants are willing to do a lot if it is discussed properly beforehand, like Loran said they will even come up with ideas.
