Sadie Elledge, 18, explained to WHSV that the customers, a man and woman, were unfriendly to her throughout the encounter. "They wouldn't talk to me. They would just nod their heads," she said. Even stranger, the woman apparently had an accent herself.

"I was born here but I'm Mexican and Honduran," said Elledge.
The owner of the restaurant refuses to have the offending couple back in her establishment. And several neighbors sent Elledge a letter, in which they "covered the tip and then some."
But Elledge's grandfather was probably the angriest of all. He gave a furious interview to The Washington Post, in which he explains how he posted the receipt to his Facebook account—which triggered a return to the restaurant by the offending couple. Elledge happened to enter the restaurant at the same time.
