New Year’s Eve is a hectic time—not only for the hordes of people trying to find the perfect bar to get into, but also for the waitstaff who patiently tend to all the inebriated customers.
It is also a time where people lose all good sense and judgement, as evident by the events that transpired this NYE at Indianapolis restaurant, Kilroy’s Bar N’ Grill.
A woman dining at the restaurant that evening took to the bar’s Facebook page to vent about what she saw as poor service the night of New Year’s Eve. The cause of that “poor service,” you ask? An “inconvenient” customer who was suffering from cardiac arrest.
In her now deleted Facebook post, a misinformed Holly Jones writes,
Chris Burton, the managing partner at Kilroy’s, responded to Jone’s comment, putting her in her rightful place. Burton writes,
The misinformed Jones was crucified by the Internet for her insensitive remarks, prompting her to delete her Facebook. Kilroy’s and Burton, on the other hand, continued to receive heaps of praise. The response was so overwhelming that even Burton himself began to feel sympathy for Jones. He explains,
And come back and bite her it did. The viral post made its way to Jones’ employer, Serenity Salon, who promptly fired Jones from her position.
Monday morning, Burton shared a GoFundMe page for the victim that underwent cardiac arrest at the restaurant. He states, “The lady survived but has a long way to go. Let’s help them out!” As of the time of this post, the page had raised over $11,000 dollars with contribution from 415 people. One of the donators included Serenity Salon, who gave $500 to help the victim.
