After a nice meal out, you might expect the check to hurt your wallet.
But you don't expect it to hurt your feelings.
However, that's exactly what happened to three California women on Thursday night, when their receipt came with the words 'Fat Girls' written across the top.
Christine Duran, Christina Huerta and Isabel Robles were having a good time at the Cameo Club Casino restaurant in Stockton but when they asked for the check they couldn't believe their eyes.

Check: The women were having a good time until they received their check, pictured, and noticed it said 'Fat Girls' on the top
'I got the bill, and I was like, why does the receipt say, "fat girls?"' Duran told News 10.
She said her pals thought she was joking at first.
'I was laughing at her, and she was like, "I'm serious." I'm like, "No, it does not say fat girls, let me see it,"' Huerta said.
Duran showed the receipt to her friends who finally believed her.
'I'm looking at it. I was like, "Oh, heck no,"' Robles said.
The ladies quizzed their waiter when he returned to their table but he denied any involvement.
He said that Jeff, whose name was on the receipt, must have typed the offensive slur into the computer as he was taking their order. But he said Jeff had gone for the night.
The three women, upset and outraged, demanded to see a manager.

Upset: Isabel Robles, pictured, insists the offensive bill was no laughing matter
'He had a smirk on his face, like it was funny, but he was trying not to laugh,' Huerta said, describing the manager.
The manager told the women he was sorry for what happened and offered to discount their bill by 25 per cent. But the ladies were unimpressed by the offer.
'He was like, "Well, I can do 50 per cent," and we were just like, "Are you serious?"' Huerta said.
Huerta took a photo of the receipt so she had proof of how she and her friends had been treated by the restaurant.
The women said they expect people to find the check amusing but insist it's no laughing matter.
'It's not funny,' Robles told News 10, tearing up.
Poor form: The Cameo Club Casino restaurant, pictured, have apologised for the receipt
'I can just see it over and over again, and I still can't believe it. They labeled us "fat girls." It's just something we got to deal with.'
Huerta added: 'I still can't believe it. I still can't get that out of my mind, what happened to us. I still can't believe that somebody would put that on a receipt.'
Cameo Club Casino bar manager Jimmy Seimers said he was disgusted at the staff member's joke.
'I was really appalled, obviously, at the behavior,' Seimers, who wasn't working that night, told News 10.
Seimers said he questioned Jeff when he found out and he admitted typing the words into the computer.
He said the waiter has been suspended as management continues to investigate the incident.
'I just want to tell (the women) that we're sincerely sorry for that, and that we'll do everything in our power to make sure that this never happens to anyone ever again,' Seimers told the TV station.
