Waiter Refuses to Serve Family for Mocking Special Needs Childcarolyncastiglia
A Houston waiter made the news this week when he refused to serve a gentleman and his family for mocking a special needs child. Michael Garcia, who works at downtown restaurant Laurenzo’s, was attending to Kim Castillo and her 5-year-old son Milo, who has Down syndrome. Milo was apparently being a bit boisterous, and a family at a nearby table moved to the back of the restaurant. As the group walked away, Garcia could hear the father saying, “Special needs children need to be special somewhere else.” When Garcia approached the family, he told them he couldn’t wait on them, so they left. Garcia’s bosses were totally supportive of his decision, and Castillo was shocked and thrilled that someone took the time to stand up for her son.
