Diner Takes Quickie Look at Young Server’s “Gross” Appearance and Demands New Waitress:


A waitress has been flooded with messages of support after sharing her story about a customer who asked for a new server because of how she looks. Maybe it’s the customers that should have been thrown out on their asses? Ashley Chiarizzio, 24,  works at the Mt. Juliet Red Robin and has blue hair and tattoos. I don’t know about you, but I think she looks just fine.


“This is me,” Chiarizzio told News 2. “I like the wow factor from family and friends.” In a Facebook post, Ashley Chiarizzio says she was in tears last weekend after her manager at a Red Robin in Tennessee told her a customer was offended by her dyed hair, tattoos and piercings.

“He told me, ‘She doesn’t like the way you look,’” Chiarizzio explained. “He said, ‘She doesn’t like the way you represent – the tattoos, the piercings, hair – she wants a new server.’” A Red Robin spokesman said they’re aware of the situation and that Chiarizzio’s hair and tattoos fit into the dress policy.

“I’ve never had someone look at me and decide I wasn’t good enough to serve them,” she said. After a good bit of crying, Chiazrizzio wrote about the incident on Facebook and the story took off.

When she came to work the next day, her co-workers had colored their hair and were sporting temporary tattoos.

“To basically say, ‘look, if you didn’t like it, you can’t sit with any of us,’ you know? Because now we all have blue hair and tattoos,” says Chiarizzio, who has also gotten thousands of messages of support online. Ashley says she hopes her story will help someone think differently about a person who doesn’t look like they do.

Hobo John here, I am a fifty year old man currently living in a small town in Idaho, this is also where I grew up. Like any Idaho boy I love the outdoors, and am a sports enthusiast. But I also love the arts and paint a little myself. In Proverbs it says, "A man's pursuit is his kindness, " and that is my only true mission in life. I like to write about just about anything; songs , children's stories, politics, short stories, however, I have not attempted a novel yet. I also consider myself a bit of a philosopher, after seven years of living the homeless life I actually started to enjoy it. I started writing little phrases that I hope contain some wisdom. I call them Hobo Metaphysics. "Gentle beats the shit out of aggressive," being one of my favorites. Peace to you folks, "I love you with everything that I have." That is my motto and the truth of things.
