One day, Milo, a five-year-old boy with Down syndrome, went to Laurenzo’s, a restaurant in Houston, TX.
The family seated next to Milo started complaining about the sounds the little boy was making and about having to sit beside him. After a few minutes, a waiter named Michael Garcia moved the agitated family to another table. However, the family still wasn’t satisfied: “Special needs children need to be special somewhere else,” the father reportedly said.
But then, the waiter decided to take a stand. Asking to be moved was one thing, but attacking the child’s right to be there didn’t sit right with Garcia. “My personal feelings took over,” he said, and he responded to the father, “Sir, I won’t be able to serve you.” The family then walked out of the restaurant in a huff.
Wow. Good people do exist. Cheers to Michael Garcia for standing up for what he believes is right and sticking up for young Milo!
