Nyjah Vest went to a Mexican restaurant on September 7 and reportedly received a receipt with much more than the total of the food she purchased.

Vest and some friends were dining at El Porton Mexican Restaurant in Duluth, Georgia and the waiter who took their order reportedly wrote first name’s down in order to issue the checks after they finished eating.

When the waiter returned from taking Vest and her group’s order, a co-worker asked for Vest’s first name so they could enter it into the restaurant’s system. The waiter then spelled out the n-word letter by letter for his co-worker to enter in.

“I even looked at him and asked, ‘are you sure?’” The waiter, who asked to remain unnamed, told FOX 5 Atlanta. “Even him leaving with that order, I kind of felt uncomfortable as well, because we all know that’s not a word to just throw around.”

The employee then double-checked with with the waiter to make sure the spelling was correct, to which he confirmed it was.

After completing her dining experience, Vest was issued the check with n-word on it.

According to reports, the waiter has since apologized for issuing a check with a racial slur on it, however Vest isn’t buying it.

“I don’t know how the n-word got put on my order,” Vest told the local news station. “I had my (debit) card there with my name on it as well, and I got rung up as the n-word.

“If somebody told me their name was that, I wouldn’t even acknowledge it,” she continued, “I would think they’re prank calling me or something. It’s a joke.”

Vest returned to the restaurant on Sunday night where she received a refund for her food, and an apology from the owner. She says she just wants to be respected and treated like any other patron.

“I really feel disrespected, especially because I’ve eaten here [before],” she concluded.
