Karen's Diner In The News Again

I came across yet another story about Karen's Diner in the news this week.

This time, the Manchester branch of the gimmick restaurant - where staff are rude to customers - was of interest because a family had been thrown out for breaking one of it's 'house rules'.

The rule in question - body shaming.

According to the story, one of the patrons called his server a 'fat slag'. The entire family were then told their business was not required.

On the surface, some - I suppose - would say 'ah, you can give it but cannot take it?' but then - when you delve further - it becomes clear that the insults delivered by the staff do not go down the body shaming route.

It seems fair enough to me when you consider the diner's house rules. This obviously works both ways for both staff and customers.

- No racist, sexist, homophobic or ableist comments or slurs will be tolerated
- No body shaming
- No sexual harrassment 
- Any damage or vandalism of the venue will lead to instant removal from the venue (Charges may also apply)
- Keep your food and drink on your tables, don't throw them, it's not fun

All customers are told about these rules upon entry whether that be by having them displayed or by having them thrown by their server.
