Somebody Watched Too Much BBWs: Red Lobster Customers Attack Waitress For Refilling Their Water Glasses

August 23, 2012  |

I don’t know about you, but there has never been an instance where I complained that a waitress gave me too many refills. If anything, I’ve been mad, dying of thirst wondering why my server thought the melting cubes of ice at the bottom of my glass could substitute as a beverage. But, some folks just don’t have good sense and three women in Belleville, IL prove that.

According to the local CBS station KMOX, three customers at a local Red Lobster flipped out on a waitress for no good reason and are now paying for it:

The three women, all from Belleville, are accused of throwing water on a female employee Friday afternoon, and striking her several times with their hands and a menu. The waitress refused treatment by ambulance crews.

The women were detained by restaurant employees before police arrived.

Charged with mob action and aggravated battery in a public place are: 21 year old Sharrell Evans, 22 year old Britley Green and 44 year old Geneen Green. Bail for each suspect was set at $50,000. They remain in custody at the Fairview Heights Police Department until arraignment.

A witness at the restaurant said the women were upset because the waitress was filling their water glasses too often.

I don’t quite have words for that, but the ladies better find good lawyers who do because they’re each being held on $50,000 bonds stemming from their restaurant antics, reports. I’m really hoping there was some other motive for this foolishness, but unfortunately so far all we have to go on is the women were sick of being given too much water and they thought attacking the waitress rather than saying “no thank you” or not drinking anymore was the best way to handle that. #Fail.

  • The way they look the need to attack a flat iron and a comb. Smh.

  • Brownie Points

    They were probably trying to dine & ditch and her constant doting was interrupting their plan.

  • Kathy Renee

    That awkward moment when you weren’t expecting this to be in your hometown. smh. I eat there. It’s only one red lobster for miles.

  • Candacey Doris

    Damn, no wonder we can’t get good service at restaurants. Waitresses are afraid because of crazy women like this!

  • gracie

    Am sure they were not planning on tipping either.

    • Cinnamon71

      Forget the tip, they probaby were going to dine and dash anyway.

  • Sigh…….

  • realadulttalk

    I really hope they come up with a better explanation…how in the world does too many refills upset you? And hello dummies-if you weren’t drinking the water she couldn’t keep refilling it. Meanwhile I always get the flighty waitresses who forget to bring out things like the main course. Lol

  • They were probably planning to run out on the bill. This type of behavior is so ratchet, it defies logic. I hope the waitress sues the ish out of them! SMH

  • sammi_lu

    I mean I get annoyed sometimes too when waitstaff constantly refill my iced tea especially after I’ve sweetened it just right..but a simple hand over my glass as they approach or a heads up that I’m good normally does the trick. There has to be something more to this story than being fed up with water refills..unless they were rabid or something.

  • IllyPhilly

    Hoodbillies strike again!

    • KSocial

      Love it! Yes that is exactly what they are Hoodbiliies! That’s what my father calls them! LOL!

  • Wow, this is one of the dumbest things people have done to get arrested. I think the server (waitress is an outdated term) deserves a raise or bonus for not smacking them back.

  • Chanda

    Giving black customers a bad name. And we wonder why servers are hesitant to wait on us. It’s not just the no tipping part but the attitude as well.

  • Stacy L

    There has GOT (yes, the grammar is intentional) to be another reason, b/c that is just OD, smdh. Over some water though?? Really?? DO BETTER

  • keeping it real

    Probably they were thinking that the waitress was implying that they were too fat by giving them too much water? Idk, smh.

  • The two in their twenties look like they are in their forties, too! Smh, and we wonder why black folks still can’t get ahead!!

  • Chanda

    I’m assuming the waitress looked better than them, they messed with the same man, or they couldn’t get a job at Red Lobster. I wonder what the waitress looks like though. There has to be more to the story than refilling water glasses.

    • ashley79

      they probably thought that she was trying to check out their man. I bet you they never had good service and thought something was up.

      • Negress

        They didn’t have a man with them and this is the second incident in about a year’s time at this location. Between them and Todd Akin our metro is not getting a good look.

        • ashley79

          maybe they thought they where the ones being checked out?

  • Kitsy

    I avoid Red Lobster because it seems to attract certain types. It’s really a shame but the Red Lobster in NYC (Times Square) always has long waiting lines if the trashiest people – yes, mostly black and I’m embarrassed to say it. *Sigh* It only takes one of us to make things bad for all of us.

    • Pretty1908

      I love red lobster…. I’ll go to any eatery that serves good food and has good service..i understand your point.

    • johnylee

      You need to read “Sister Citizen” because maybe then you will get over your “shame”. smdh “Black folks” need to get over the “if one black person does something wrong it reflects on all of us” ideology! Why are “we” so accepting of the premise that we are the only “group” of people who have displayed “ratchet” behavior. I don’t see “white” people online saying, “Oh lawd, James Holmes is a bad representation of ‘our’ group!” or “Why did he have to make ‘us’ look bad!” Why do we feel the need to take on these women behavior as if we were ‘part of it’? These women represent only ‘themselves’ by ‘their’ behavior! And do not use the ‘reasoning’ that this is how ‘society’ see us! Society can only dictate what ‘we’ allow.

      • TheLovliest…

        Although these women do not reflect who I am as a Black woman other groups WILL. It’s sad that people judge, but it’s life. No one should have anything to prove, but it doesn’t help when wretched Black people, such as these women, make it harder to navigate everyday life.

    • Cinnamon71

      I agree, Kitsy. I haven’t been to a Red Lobster in years but it’s because I found a better seafood place..but this goes for clubs, bars, movies, etc. My experience over the years is just to avoid places that appear to have trouble brewing and extensive loitering. Unfortunately, common courtesy, manners, class and empathy don’t resonate with a lot of our people nowadays and it clearly shows those rotten apples don’t fall far from the tree.

  • Rae Marie

    Really? Shame on that woman for doing her job and giving good service. Are people that crazy nowadays?

  • Ashamed

    NOOOO!!!!!! THAT’S MY HOMETOWN!!!!!!! THE SHAME!!!!!!!

    • ambitious1

      That’s where I live and I am ashamed as well..

  • Estylo702

    These women are 21, 22, and 44??? Who says black don’t crack….?

    • Pretty1908

      yes they look old AF..a hard life will do that to you

    • realadulttalk

      Good black…good black don’t crack–they are obviously from the not-so-good black tribe. Lol

      • LA2DC777

        They are obviously not drinking enough water lol.

  • Mytique


  • Ann

    This is so stupid and ignorant! Grown women. Grown women doing something stupid. This person was doing her job. Dummies!

    • With them as customers she would have probably been damned if she do damned if she don’t. If she didn’t refill their glasses enough i’m sure they would have complained about that too. Now they can sit and jail and think about their actions cause between the 3 of them they probably don’t have 50 dollars let alone 50,000

  • Pretty1908

    I love cheddar biscuits and artichoke lobster dip but geeesh

    • Hello_Kitty81

      My daughter and I love, love, LOVE those cheddar biscuits!

  • Hello_Kitty81

    Is is that hard to tell the waitress to stop refilling their glasses with water? Like they say, you can take a person out of the hood, but you can’t take the hood out of the person.

    • TRUTH IS

      These hoes be acking up…lol
