Waiter to the blind man: 'No, sir. Your gay dog is not welcome!'

Can you believe this? It's like some skit from Saturday Night Live. A restaurant in Adelaide, Australia refused a blind man into their establishment because they believed his guide dog was gay!

A waiter who works at the restaurant was asked if it was okay to bring in a guide dog and the waiter mis-heard the request as a 'gay' dog (I know, I know, like WTF?) and he said "no". The blind man made a complaint about the incident and the Equal Opportunity Tribunal says that the restaurant must pay him $1500 in damages and give him a written apology. And the best part is that the restaurant owners must participate in an Equal Opportunity education program.

Imagine how these bigots must feel towards gay people?
