Social media has today become like this self-proclaimed watchdog that keeps calling out the evils of society in order to keep it in check. And this time, it’s a waiter at a pizza joint that is being schooled for mistreating homeless kids who entered the outlet and sat at the tables.
A video shared by Twitter user Hatinder Singh shows a couple of kids sitting at the table moments before they are shooed away by a server from a Sbarro outlet.
Sharing the video, Singh wrote that if the kids had paid for food, they should be allowed to sit inside the premises of the store. The fact that someone’s financial status decides if they should be treated with respect and dignity shows how flawed our society is.
Don't Know About The Place But If These Kids Have Paid For Something They Should Be Allowed To Sit Inside.
But The Way The Waiter Is Pushing Them Out And Kids Looking At Each Other Shows, We See The Financial Status Of Person And Decide How Much Respcet To Give.

It’s unclear whether the kids ordered something or were just sitting inside the store.
yes,they haven’t order anything or not going to order anything

Whatever the case may be, people online were irked by the actions of the waiter. They also reprimanded the person filming the video for not intervening.
The problem is that even the service boy must not be making a lot of money, still he fails to empathize…

But why people just take these videos instead of intervening?

Recording and sharing wont help or change anything…but intervening and standing against wrong will.

@Sbarro_IN learn to treat kids properly. You definitely wouldn’t HV gvn them free entry n food. Then why? And person who recorded this why didn’t react at all??

The person who is telling the kids to go outside because he is not aware whether they are going to buy something to eat or not so he may have told them to go out and if he will not tell them to go out then he will have to face the consequence from his Senior.

Dear team @Sbarro
Is this how you treat & discriminate people based on their dress, standard and color?
Absolute inhuman 💔💔 https://t.co/N4XGkApTxP

The disrespect is uncalled for. The ill-treatment of the little kids when the establishment is visibly empty was unnecessary. But would you prefer sitting next to them with your kids and eating? Or even thinking of entering a place crowded with them? Just truly answer this to yourself.
We, as a society, are flawed. The moment we are okay with sharing our space with people who don’t look a certain way or belong to a certain class or financial status, that very moment, the problem will be resolved.
