A restaurant chain known for its flame-grilling humour has sacked one of its employees for using vulgar language in a receipt to customer.
Nando’s came to the decision after a photograph of the receipt issued by Nando’s IOI City Mall branch on May 17 was shared widely on social networking sites.
In the receipt, the customer is called “C*bai” in a Hokkien derogatary term. Why this happened, it is unsure.
“Dear friends of Nando’s. This incident has ruffled all our feathers at Nando’s and we do take matters like these very seriously. As of today, the staff in question has been officially terminated from employment.
“We thank all of you for your support and we apologise on behalf of our staff for any offence he may have caused anyone else,” Nandos said in a comment on it Facebook page.
Nandos, which is known to take digs at current events and its rival chains in its ads, found itself being roasted in social media after the photograph was shared.
The manager on duty at the time has apologised to the customer and managed to get her contact details as well, it said.
