A popular Philadelphia restaurateur has been asked to leave another restaurant after complaining that a dog was allowed to drink from a glass typically used for human customers. The woman claims restaurant staff sided with the man because he lives near the business.
On Sunday July 17, Saudia Shuler, the owner of Country Cooking Restaurant and Catering, made headlines after complaining about the service she received at the Devon Seafood and Grill in the Rittenhouse Square area of the city of L ‘brotherly Love.
Shuler, who has more than 422,000 Instagram followers, took to her social media page to share the ordeal with the public. In a two-minute video, she shared with her followers a clip of a man sharing a glass of water with his white poodle at his table outside, an act she deemed disgusting and reprehensible.
The caption of the video read: ‘I was so shocked that he asked people for a glass of water for him and the dog. Devon Seafood Grill has gone too far.
She went on to say that the man knew it was wrong to share the drink but did it anyway. Shuler further stated that the reason the establishment didn’t reprimand the older white man was “he lives there, that’s why they took care of him.”
In one of the three posts, she expresses her outrage.
“Now this man keeps asking for a bowl of water. I want to see what you are going to do. First he asked for a bowl of water and then he asks for a glass of water,” he recounts. she at the moment of Calvary.
In the background, the man can be seen sitting in a chair looking around, while the dog dances happily.
The video of the dog drinking from the glass was deleted by Instagram but was captured by The Shade Room.
Viewers can clearly see the dog splashing glass.
Chef Saud says, “I’ll never drink from glasses at Devon’s again…I’m so fucking pissed off right now.
“They let these white people do whatever they want,” she continued. “I’m so angry right now. It’s not cool at all.
Saud is accompanied by family members, and she asks them: “She sees him doing that too? The waitress sees him doing this and doesn’t say anything?
In a third video, which appears as the first on her Instagram, she says she was so disgusted she couldn’t eat her food.
While modeling her outfit and still referencing the incident, Shuler said she called the manager, who told her it was acceptable in the community and also brought the dog cookies.
“Did I say I come here every week to eat? [I come] because I love food,” she says in a video as her grandson films. Then she said, “Look at the dog, they give them cookies and shit. I couldn’t even eat my g## d##n food. I bring my own mugs from now on. Period.”
Later, as the camera records, she is approached by a waitress.
The waitress begins, “I know you’re upset about…”
The video cuts and then begins with Shuler sharing with her viewers that since she said something, she’s been asked to leave.
The woman denies but raises her voice. Shuler then points the finger at the lady and says, “Who you yelling for, f##k? Don’t yell at me. It is at this point; the waitress fetches her manager.
“I hope you know who I am,” Shuler informs the waitress, who says she doesn’t care.
“You don’t have to worry about it, because it’s a job for you, but your people will hear.”
The waitress responds, “We’re going to have to ask you to leave because this is getting out of hand.”
A fourth post features a screenshot from cuteness.com about the safety of humans and animals sharing the same dishes.
She states in the post, “If I did this. Y’all would have my fucking head on a platter. Devon’s Seafood Grill is out of pocket for giving the man a drink of water to a dog. He didn’t even buy anything. Then afterwards I made a sic problem about it. He brought a beer.
“Mananger and workers were rude to me after I said something,” the caption concludes. “told me I had to leave and everything. I was waiting for my Lyth sic and they said I had to go. After seeing the man giving the dog water through the glass, no one said anything. Then they brought dog biscuits to eat.
She said, “The man smiled at me and laughed.”
