Waiter Refuses to Serve Man who Mocked Down Syndrome Child

There's always a lot of bad things going on in the world. You might even think the world specializes in creating bad. But every once in a while something good happens. And it's worth noticing.

Fox News reports:

Michael Garcia, a waiter at Laurenzo's, was serving a family who have been regulars since the restaurant opened. The family includes 5-year-old Milo, who has Down syndrome.

"Milo wasn't being bad, he was just talking and making little noises," Garcia told FoxNews.com. But a customer at a nearby table who was also with his family began making comments about Milo.

The customer got up from the table and moved his family to another table further away from Milo, but still in Garcia's serving section.

Garcia said the man continued talking about Milo and said, "special needs children need to be special somewhere else."

"My personal feelings took over because that's ignorance in my opinion and I told him 'Sir, I won't be able to serve you,'" Garcia tells FoxNews.com.

The man and his family got up and left the restaurant, while Milo's family was unaware of the incident at all.

"Maybe there were other ways I could have handled it, but Milo is such an angel, he is a gift from God as are all special needs children," Garcia said.

Civil suit? Are jerks a protected class, now?

God bless Michael; Laurenzo's is certainly blessed in having this fine man as a waiter. The next time I'm in Houston I'm going to find the place and splurge a bit.

May Milo's guardian angel pray for all of us. We are blessed in Milo in ways we will not know in this life, but will in the next.

Well, the guy does make a case for eugenics. Not against people with Down's Syndrome, though.
