    wow.... that's just a tinsy bit offensive. I'd walk out of a restaurant if I witnessed anything similar. (after accidently spilling the contents of everything on my table.)

    I don't know what I would do in that situation, but I know I wouldn't be quiet...even if I was just an "innocent bystander" overhearing the exchange. And what I would have to say (and/or do) would not be pretty, nor legal.

    Stupid ass waiter, he should have got the food thrown at his face. But the problem is I don't think many people sitting in that restaurant would have done anything about it.

    if asked - where is your mommy? - I'd probably look at my guy and we'd both say that the mother of our children is right here ... * points to me * because I am the worrier, the one who likes learning to cook, the one that gets stuck folding the laundry more often, and the one who plans summer camps - birthday parties - sleepovers - and helps the children with their studies ... " their mother, you ask? she's right here. * points to self * I am the mother, the judge, and the jury ... pardon me, while I masticate this chicken parm. I'll signal you, the waiter, when I need more water. any more inane questions and I'll ask you where your tip is ... "

    * snaps

    I will definitely be watching.

    From the description I believe that the mommies, the children and the waiter will all be actors and that the situation will be presented to see how other patrons in the restaurant react.

    I think if I were to witness such a thing I would go ballistic - that sort of behavior would be completely outrageous!

    i cant wait to watch the episode, the "What would you do?" show always makes me cringe.. i know theyre all actors, but i can think of it happening for real to someone and it makes me angry, i love how some people intervene and stand up for others..

    i remember watching an episode where they had a teen girl at a pharmacy wanting to get the "morning after" pill, and the pharmacist refused to give it to her because of his beliefs.. people behind her were furious at him, while some behind her back agreed with the pharmacist.

    best show ever.



    im excited to watch this one.

    I can't wait until the day comes where some homophobe discriminates against me in public. I am such a drama queen and will yell at the top of my lungs to cause so much embarrassing and negative attention on them (and on myself too I guess but I don't care I'm a low-life anyway).

    Did anyone watch "What Would You Do?" tonight?

    I wanted to cheer some of the people on and wanted to smack a few others upside the head.

    Argh! I just now saw this post! Did anyone tune in? How was it?

    I'm also curious about the special needs topic they said was being covered. What was the situation and what were the results?

    You know what's most upsetting, ABC did not even include this gay piece in the promo for the show, only the drinking airline pilots. PLUS, stupidly, they aired the first "What would you DO?" last Friday, so I thought it would be on FRIDAY again.

    This is why TV programmers have lost A LOT of viewers: they switch days for shows, thinking that it will get more viewers interested. What it actually does is mess up people's viewing schedules, and in the end, people don't watch.

    Thanks for putting up the clip, Vic.

    I'm grateful for and admire the handful who stood up for the family. I'm not sure what I myself might have done in this situation.

    The last guy's words stuck with me though. "That's not being a hero, that's doing the right thing."

    Thats damn crazy..... so in some states lesbians can be tossed out? This seems really strange. Who has the authority to make that call? What its just a woman and her children with a friend? I can see lawsuits out the ass on this one.

    And the idea that a waiter did something like that. I would have called the manager and asked for a different waiter... after I told him to mind own own damn business.
