Waffle House prides itself in being America's place to eat; offering sometimes good food, and pleasant service with a smile. Though in truth those smiles are often faker then many realize.

Nowhere is this more apparent then the location at 219 So. Clayton St. in Lawrenceville, GA. Arrive any time after the traditional breakfast, and lunch rush, and a cloud seems to fall over the entire establishment.

But it's what happens with each customer entering that is most appalling to me. From salesperson, to cook, they watch the guest, comments like how a mother of six "must be a baby machine" or how every taxi driver "is Spanish."

Another server (who I believe no longer works at the location) refused to take tables that weren't white; stating they never tipped! On several occasions other employees complained about her, but nothing was done until corporate's back was against the wall.

On third shift, which must begin some time around eight or nine a whole different bred of staff comes into play. Particularly the cook; he is rash, drunk, sloppy, on several occasions I have seen him not where gloves after sneezing, or changing garbage bags.

And what he has to say; he is perhaps that worst of them all, he watches cars, people, and trends; referring to a group of European Girls as "Euro trash"; and a female taxi driver as the "Mexican madame"; he speaks of sexual acts and deeds without any care for who might be listening; and yet the other staff members just laugh at him, and even egg him on.

In their effort to maintain status quo; Waffle House will likely continue to ignore behavior such as that going on at this location; getting involved only when necessary; and why not they've gotten away with it this long, why change?
