(Newser) – Friendly's Sports Bar and Grill in St. Louis didn't quite live up to its name this Father's Day, when a man found an unusual line item on his printed receipt: "1 f---in needy kids," KSDK reports. The place doesn't usually allow children, its manager says, but he made an exception for the holiday. After the man ordered an extra chicken leg for his son, his receipt came with the insulting charge—though at least there was no price attached to it.

The waitress had intended the item as a joke for the kitchen staff, manager Denny Domachowski says. "So customers with children are a joke? This place isn't so friendly," the dad noted on Facebook, per Gawker. "Normally, those (kitchen) instructions are cleared off the bill before it's printed out and given to the customer," Domachowski tells the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "But, obviously, they weren't." He apologized for the incident. (Read more strange stuff stories.)
