BOCA RATON, Fla. -- After a South Florida woman picked up her car from valet, something was left inside it- an insult written on the ticket.
"I was mortified," Sharyn Peoples said. "In handwriting it said 'play, red dress, and fat' on it."
Peoples was at Mizner Park in BocaRaton to act in a play earlier this month. She was wearing a red dress.But she said writing the word "fat" on her valet ticket crosses theline.
Peoples was so upset, she reached out to LAZ Parking of Florida.
"It's only words and it's from somekid, and that's one of the things the guy said to me on the phone. Hesaid, 'You know, we employ 18- and 20-year-old kids.' I said, 'Sir,they're legally adults.'"
After their conversation on thephone, Peoples received an e-mail from Dan Silva of LAZ Parking of SouthFlorida that started out with "Please accept our sincerest apologies."Part of it also said that moving forward "physical appearance will notbe written on tickets" and that "this type of situation will never occuragain."
In the e-mail written to Peoples, Silva also offeredher free valet parking for next year and a gift card to a restaurant atMizner Park.
"We deeply regret this incident andthe company has apologized to the customer and the employee has beendisciplined," said Luis Macedo, the general manager of LAZ Parking ofFlorida, in a statement on Friday. "LAZ Parking continues to becommitted to providing the best customer experience possible."
Peoples said she is devastated bywhat happened, and doubts she is the first customer to fall victim tothis kind of treatment. Now, she hopes whoever did it is fired and theinsults are curbed.
"People should not accept employees slandering their patrons in any way, shape, or form," she said.
Peoples doesn't know which employee wrote the insult on her valet ticket, but she has a message for the writer.
"I feel bad for you that yourparents obviously didn't raise you well enough, and I hope youunderstand this is not at all acceptable," she said.
