Allergies are no laughing matter

I have food allergies but they are not life-threatening, I just get hives like Woogie from “There’s Something About Mary.”
However, some people get serious allergic reactions and a waiter shouldn't ignore that or make fun of it. Makes me wonder what else they don’t know about the industry they work in.
In response to a reader's dining experience, FloFab replied “Obviously that wait person has been badly trained and the restaurant could use a wake-up call.”
It's important for restaurants to properly train their staff members to keep people from getting sick; be it from foodborne pathogens or allergies.
