When the meat was served again, the wife was still displeased so the waitress offered the couple free dessert. However the customer pushed back her plate, paid the bill and left. Before leaving, the irate customer filled a restaurant comment card and deposited it in the customer comment box. Ms. Hatton then borrowed the key from the hostess and retrieved the card and accidentally threw it out. Because of this incident, Ms. Hatton was fired from her job.
