Already in 2013, Anna took her sister 7 years old, Arianna, for lunch at Chili in Midvale, Utah. Arianna is autistic, and what he likes things in a certain order at all times.
burgers are the favorite food of Arianna, so that when the wine server, Arianna was ready with your order. But as soon as he got the burger, Anna noticed that her little sister refuse to dig – it was strange, and very unlike Arianna. “Why do not you want it?” He asked Anna. Arianna said, “It’s broken. I need another which is fixed.” Anna realized the burger was halved, and therefore was “broken” his little sister.
When server came back to his table, Anna ordered another burger and explained that Arianna has autism. “I told Lauren knew she sounded silly, but if we could request an additional be happy to pay for it because there was nothing wrong with which it was originally held,” Anna wrote in a viral time of Facebook. The reaction of the server to the strange request was absolutely amazing, and something that Anna never expected … “I want to share the experience my husband, my 7 year old autistic sister and I had today at the premises of chili Midvale, UT. Arianna, my little sister, wasted no time the waitress, Lauren, met us at our table. Arianna quickly ordered his burger with cheese and pickles, fries and chocolate milk before Lauren could even take our drink order. Lauren smiled and Arianna said, ‘All right! I’ll be back with your chocolate milk!’
When we got our food I was wondering why Arianna would not touch her hamburger, but would . the city on their fries I asked, ‘Arianna going to eat your burger “She said calmly:”. no, I do not want’ ‘O cheeseburgers, Krabby Patties’ as we sometimes call them, are your favorite So this behavior was very strange So I asked,’ Why do not you want? “She replied:”.?. It is broken I need another that’s fixed. “Then I realized why I was not eating. Is because half is reduced. “
” Being a child with autism, she has to have certain things in a particular order at all times. A slight change in your routine can change the course of the day instantly. When Lauren came back to check on us, I asked if we could order another burger and just add to our departure. She had a look of concern on his face so he explained that Arianna has autism, and that in his mind, because the cheese is cut in half, she thinks it is broken and can not eat. I told Lauren knew she sounded silly, but if we could ask for an extra we will gladly pay for it because there was nothing wrong with which it was originally held.
Lauren was so sweet and just smiled and went along with Arianna, saying “I brought a broken burger?! You know what, I’ll have to cook them a new one! ‘I loved it because instead of just taking off the table, he actually said Arianna what he was doing. While this seems insignificant, saying Arianna what I was doing, you have to avoid a meltdown.
the manager, Bradley Cottermole, then came to our table, she knelt and told Arianna, “I heard gave him a broken burger! I’m sorry about that! We are making a new brand that is not broken, with pickles! I’ll get some fries to munch on while you’re waiting, ok? ‘
“A couple of minutes later, Lauren returned to our table with cheese # 2. Arianna said,’ FANK OH YOU! You fixded my burger! ‘When Lauren walked away, Arianna sat there for a second and looked at his new burger. She seemed so deep in thought … .just looking … .then let out a big ‘OH that has been lost !!’ and began to kiss the burger again and again
Lauren showed this picture and I said. ‘I think glorifying the burger too!’ She laughed, and asked if he could go to show their manager. She returned a minute later and said it showed everyone in the back kitchen area too, and they all laugh and smile made. I was so affected by this experience. especially because I know people who have been asked to leave restaurants when your child with autism is be harmful. ”
“I was expecting some different things with this scenario based on past experience, but I did not expect this kind and gestures of compassion Lauren and Bradley. Everyone from the hostess with the chef, has played a role in what most people might think it’s not a big deal. But this way completely the way the rest of our days go.
know … a cut half cheese could literally make or break our day. in this case thanks to the professionalism of the crew in Midvale, which made our day. And I’m sure Arianna perked up at least one employee days with his little silly personality. Thank you. ”
