Restaurant Owner Responds to Customer

Little Italy Restaurante in Anchorage, Alaska is receiving worldwide praise.

P.J. Gialopsos, the restaurant’s owner, explains the situation on their Facebook page.  An angry customer calls the restaurant.  “The customer wasn’t simply complaining, he was ranting and foul. He informed us our driver was an idiot and strung out on drugs and was FURIOUS!”

The driver is autistic.  The restaurant tries to explain, “It was calmly explained to him, no, this driver is not on drugs….nor does he drink….he is autistic and has a slight speech impediment. The customer called the phone person a liar, had a few more choice words for her and hung up.”

This is how the restaurant owner responds to the issue:

The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, also known as Pastafarianism, is a social movement that promotes a light-hearted view of religion and opposes the teaching of intelligent design and creationism in public schools.

Pastafarianism is back in the news after a Boston woman won the right to wear a spaghetti colander on her head in her driver’s license photo.  She cited her religious beliefs.  Get the full story.
