Texas diner fees a surcharge if you happen to argue about their masks mandate
A Texas restaurant proprietor, sick and uninterested in anti-maskers coming into his restaurant and debating him on why masks are required in his restaurant, determined to fight the relentless sludge of maskholes by implementing a “mask surcharge.” If the restaurant has to clarify to you why masks are obligatory, your invoice is $50 costlier. And if you happen to attempt to “debate” them on their masks coverage, you simply added an additional $25 to that invoice.
After Texas lifted its masks mandate and allowed eating places to function at full capability, some eating places continued to implement their very own masks insurance policies, which didn’t sit properly with a whole lot of Texans, as a result of, you understand “their freedom” or no matter.
However, Legends Diner didn’t give an eff and put an indication within the window that reads: “Our new surcharge. $50 if I have to explain why masks are mandatory. $75 if I have to hear why you disagree.”
Honestly? We like to see it.
“We are serious about masks precautions,” the restaurant’s proprietor Wayne LaCombe informed Today. “We require masks to walk in. We take temperatures, we have sanitizer on every table. Nobody’s allowed to walk around the restaurant without wearing a mask, because you do have diners sitting down, eating, not wearing a mask…It’s an important subject that needs to be addressed. We know when people do not wear masks, numbers go up, and we’re seeing that right now.”
He stated that he put the enroll after Governor Abbott struck the statewide masks mandate. LaCombe additionally identified that restaurant employees nonetheless aren’t eligible for the vaccine regardless of having to interface with maskless clients all day.
Legends even needed to launch a Facebook assertion underlying (once more) why they’re selecting to implement masks carrying of their restaurant, which is simply exhausting work they shouldn’t should do, however once more…Texas.
“All we ask is that customers wear a mask as they walk past another person that is eating and not wearing a mask. Sure dosen’t seem like a lot to ask…but apparently it is,” they shared in a Facebook assertion.

“(People) were laughing and taking pictures of it coming in, saying ‘I love your sign,’ so I left it up,” stated LaCombe. “We definitely did not expect to get this kind of response….People don’t want their freedom infringed on, but small businesses, especially here, are definitely taking this serious and requesting masks upon entering, so fortunately we are not having any issues with people coming in unmasked.”
