The Thai Spice restaurant in Adelaide, Australia, has been fined for turning away a blind customer because they thought his guide dog was gay. In 2009, a waiter misunderstood the man’s female companion, thinking she said he wanted to bring a “gay dog” into the eatery instead of a “guide dog”. The owner claims his staff honestly believed it was a regular mutt that had been “desexed to become a gay dog”. After two years, the restaurant has been ordered to pay the blind man $1400 (US) and write an apology letter.
- So Thai restaurants serve dog, they just won’t serve someone with one?
- They actually thought the dog was gay because when they said “shake” he gave them a really limp paw.
- The only eateries in the Far East where dogs are always welcome are in North Korea.
