Woman Fires Back At Valet Attendant Who Called Her "Fat"
INSIDE EDITION spoke to a woman who says she was humiliated after she received a valet ticket from an attendant who wrote "fat" on the ticket.
Actress Sharyn Peoples was humiliated when she found a valet ticket left inside her car with a written message describing her as fat.
Peoples told INSIDE EDITION, "I was mortified. Embarrassed. Angry."
She says she was coming out of a play she had performed in at a regional theater in Boca Raton, Florida, when she saw the description which the valet had written on her ticket so he could recognize her.
"It says, ‘Play, Red dress, and Fat,’ on it and I was wearing a red dress,” said Peoples.
Making the situation all the more embarrassing, it was her boyfriend who actually saw the insulting note first.
She said, "It made me very angry and hurt and embarrassed. I cried, I’ll admit it, it hurt my feelings."
She complained, and she says two full weeks passed before a manager from the valet company called and apologized, but she says he didn't seem to take it very seriously.
"He apologized. At one point he even said, 'You have to understand that I’m dealing with 18 and 20-year-old kids," said Peoples.
The valet company, Laz Parking, said in a statement, "We deeply regret this incident and the company has apologized to the customer and the employee has been disciplined."
Peoples believes, "Businesses should take it more seriously to not treat their customers this way."
