A Houston waiter is getting praise and encouragement from people all over the country for doing something, that in other circumstances, might have gotten him fired.

A woman, Kim Castillo and her young son, Milo, were dining in Laurenzo's Prime Rib, a restaurant in Houston, Texas, when a family of four came in to eat, and was seated at a booth nearby. Upon noticing that Milo has Down's Syndrome, the family asked to be moved to a table in a different area of the restaurant. The family reportedly told the waiter, 'Special needs kids should be kept in special places.'"

The waiter told the family that he was offended by their comment, and refused to serve them. The family who had requested to be moved, left the restaurant a short time later.

Kim Castillo relayed the story on her Facebook page later, and the story went viral, prompting thousands of comments on Laurenzo's Prime Rib's Facebook page, from people praising the waiter, and restaurant management for supporting his actions.
