When three friends finished their meal at a California restaurant, they did not expect to be insulted on the bill.

That is exactly what happened to Christine Duran, Christina Huerta and Isabel Robles when they visited Chilly D's Sports Lounge, part of the Cameo Club Casino, in Stockton, Calif., according to ABC affiliate News 10. When the three diners got their check they saw "fat girls" written on their bill.

"I got the bill, and I was like, why does the receipt say, 'fat girls?'" Duran told News 10. At first, her friends didn't even believe her. "[Huerta] was like, 'You're lying,' And I was like, 'No, I'm serious. Look at it.' She was like, 'fat girls?'"

When their server returned, the three girls questioned him about the "fat girls" label, but the waiter denied any wrongdoing, according to News 10. He said an employee named "Jeff," whose name appears on the receipt, must have typed "fat girls" into the system to keep track of their bill.

A manager went over to explain the "fat girls" check, but he “had like a smirk on his face, like it was funny but trying not to laugh,” Duran told ABC News. Instead of clearing all charges, he offered a discount of 25 percent and then a discount of 50 percent, but the women rejected the offers.

On Saturday, Chilly D's posted an apology on its Facebook page over the insulting bill.

Our Verdict: OMG! As a former server myself, this is an absolute no-no. First off, you should be using table numbers, and if you can't , something like "3 ladies" or "Door Table" will do just fine. I'm pretty sure this server should have been able to remember these women by some other moniker. These women definitely should have gotten their meal for free. How insulting!
