I have a co-worker whose son has a fear of food. Literally, he eats 7 foods and he won't eat anything he can't immediately recognize. That's it. He won't touch food at all and doesn't even want to look at it or he freaks out.
She and her husband took him to a restaurant for his 10th birthday (this is where he wanted to go) and told the restaurant not to bring out anything for his birthday because he's scared of food, especially meat and dairy products. Well, no one told the server. This restaurant pies you in the face on your birthday. So, this kid literally got a face full of banana cream pie and it was so traumatic that it sent him to the hospital for 3 days. The restaurant said they aren't liable because they didn't have to eat there and so they are refusing to pay for his hospital bills.
Should she sue the restaurant or was it her fault?
- Yes, she should sueVote A
- No, that's her faultVote B

Honestly if the kid is scared of food Im not sure he deserves to live. Being scared of food is like the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard.
If they never told the server, how were they supposed to know the kid had some freakish phobia.8THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE

I think if someone has a legitimate "fear" of food, I'm not sure why they would go to a restaurant where they will be surrounded by... food. Lol
That being said, I would NOT be happy if a restaurant just randomly pied me in the face without any warning. I would actually be pretty pissed if that happened. I wouldn't sue though, I would just never go back to that establishment again.5THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
