While we are not sure where this occurred or why it happened, it is clear footage of an unidentified woman lingering outside of a fast food restaurant’s door. From the footage, it appears she was staring at the Black family as they casually ate a meal with their infant child.
After thoroughly analyzing the footage, our theory is that this woman could have been a previous problem starter for this restaurant or that what was recorded was the aftermath of something that occurred between the irate woman and the family. Either way we commend the workers for stepping in and acting as a barrier between the family and the irate customer.
Considering we don’t promote violence or hatred we won’t share what exactly was said. Yet, if you want to know, click here to watch.
The things people do when they’re hungry and upset.
An angry customer at a Zaxby’s in Jonesboro, GA threw under seasoned fries at a Zaxby worker. Then punched the monitor right before she left the restaurant.
According to Action JAX News, surveillance video shows her leaving with the takeout order, then coming back with a man within 30 seconds to complain about the order. Police are searching for the couple.
It’s one of the single most profitable days for retailers as customers run in to dish out money on gifts for their honey buns. Considering the impulsive shopping habits of customers when it comes to matters of the heart, the National Retail Federation estimated that consumers would spend $3.8 billion on this day alone.
With so much money to be made many restaurants including Subway, Fogo de Chao, and a host of others have issued promotions to get their share of the Valentine’s Day pie. Yet, to my surprise, all deals weren’t offered in the US.
After hearing of the free 6” Subway sub promo from a co-worker on yesterday, I sent out a blast text informing everyone I knew. But, after visiting the restaurant to redeem the offer, I was told “that’s not true” and “someone had made it up” by a Subway worker. Made it up? I thought. Who in their right mind would make up such a claim? No one has time for those kind of games.
Taking time out to calm myself, I Googled and saw that the Subway offer was only available in the UK. So was other offers I previously heard throughout the day. Yet, I was not the only customer who was hot over the issue. There were many others.
My question: Does it make sense for globally recognized brands to offer promos in one country and not another? Especially when it is a globally recognized holiday?
As if fast-food could not get any more disgusting.
A fast food worker by the name of Sky Juliett Samuel from Columbus, MS decided she was fed up with one customer and took matters into her own hands. According to nbc4i.com, a co-worker claimed Samuel did the unthinkable and decided to put her menstrual blood and saliva on a customer’s cheeseburger before serving it to them. Now I understand as a woman that time of the month is no fun. But who does this?
Continuing the story, Samuel allegedly did the act on January 7th while working at Jack’s Family Restaurant. Yet, it was Samuel’s on mother who blasted her on Facebook the viral story led to police issuing a warrant for her arrest.
CEO of Jack’s Family Restaurants, Inc., Todd Bartmess, responded by stating “Food safety is our №1 priority and we are investigating this,…We want to talk to everybody involved, get their stories and find out what happened. We take these kinds of things very seriously.”
Samuel has since then turned herself in and faces up to 5 years in prison.
We are sure Vernon Richo never saw this coming as he pulled into a Yulee FL Whataburger for a late night snack run. According to Richo, he pulled into the restaurant’s drive thru line around 1:35 am on December 4th to order drinks.
“I arrived in the Yulee Florida Whataburger drive thru approximately 1:35am December 4th 2016 to purchase a milkshake for my friend and something to drink for myself.”
He was greeted as he should have been and was asked to hold a moment being that there were only 2 employees working, which he did.
“The Drive thru attendant greeted us as expected and asked us to hold for a moment. I agreed.”
After holding for a short while, Richo suggested to his friend that they visit another fast food place which was nearby. That’s when the Whataburger snapped.
“After waiting longer than four minutes with no response, I made a comment to my friend about going to the McDonald’s two buildings over. After the attendant heard my statement she said “My general manager said that because there was only two employees working that shift that they could reject customers service and she then told me to “Go ahead to McDonald’s and leave her Fucking drive thru.”
Taking offense to the worker’s tone and offensive use of language, Richo decided to record the rest of the encounter.
“I then proceeded to record the rest our interaction on cell phone video. I told her to treat me with respect as a customer and serve me politely.”
Being a minister and using the peaceful method of protest, Richo waited for the worker to politely ask him “Hi, can I take your order?”. Yet, he never received that.
“She refused even after the drive through was clear and the customers behind me left the line.. Then she called the Nassau County Sheriff’s office on me to remove me from the drive thru. I waited another five minutes for her to serve me before the cops got there but she didn’t. Then the cops called me out of the line, questioned me, and then suggested that I not seek to receive service from there tonight.”
Yet, this is not the fast food chain’s first time refusing to properly service customers. According to Fox 4 News, a Lewisville TX Whataburger employee told two off-duty police officers that “We don’t serve police officers”.
In conclusion, Richo claimed he was “Mistreated, Refused Service, Cursed, Embarrassed and most of all forced by Cops to leave the premises without being in any violation of any kind” all because he requested proper customer service from a drive thru worker.
A day in which all of America comes together to honor those who risk their lives for the betterment of ours. Without their daily sacrifices the quote “the land of the free…the home of the brave” would not exist in our country’s National Anthem. Yet, this day of honor did not go as planned for one vet.
On Veterans Day, November 11, 2016, Ernest Walker, a disabled veteran who uses a service dog, went to the Cedar Hill, TX Chili’s Restaurant on 376 N Hwy 67 to redeem the free meal for veterans offer. After sitting down and ordering his meal, a customer wearing a Trump shirt approached Walker asking him “Where did you serve?” referring to the military branch he served. Walker, who proudly served the 25th Infantry Division Tropic Lightening in the US Army, took the time to explain which branch he served.
“I was approached by an old white guy, maybe in his 70s, with a Trump Shirt, at Chili’s on Veteran’s Day yesterday. He asked if I was in the 24th unit, and I said “no the 25th?”
Doubting Walker’s claim of being a vet, the customer went to the restaurant manager to tell him Walker was not a vet and should not be served a free meal.
“Then the Manager, MR. Wesley Patrick, comes from the same area in the back, walked up, and rudly informs me that a guest said that I was not a real soldier because I had my hat on indoors. Other guests heard him.”
After arriving at Walker’s table, the manager Wesley Patrick asks Walker to show his military ID to prove he is a vet. Which he does. Then the manager asks for Walker’s information on his service dog. Which he again provides.
“He asked for my military ID, I was calm, and provided it to him. I also provided him with my DD214 which is my discharge paperwork. At that point he should have just said “I am sorry Sir, thank you for your service’ Instead he followed up with “the guest also said your dog is not a service dog.”
Yet after proving his military status and having documentation on his service dog, the restaurant manager tells Walker he to leave. Instead of leaving, Walker decides to film the incident.
“Barack had his Red Service Vest on, and his Certified Service Tags. I was sitting for 35 minutes prior with Barack beforehand. At this point I was grossly offended embarrassed dehumanized and started Recording…Mr. Wesley snatched my food away”
While filming, Walker states he showed the manager his military id and documents on his service dog. The manager became infuriated and continued to ask Walker to leave. Even snatching his free meal from his hands.
According to another source Pastor Marcus King, the restaurant manager did not apologize nor did Chili’s. Pastor King stated Chili’s made claims of firing the manager on Monday, November 14th. Yet as of Saturday, November 12, 2016 the manager is still employed there.
UPDATED November 14, 2016
According to NBCDFW News, Chili’s has apologized to Walker via his Facebook page:
“We are aware of the situation that occurred at our Chili’s Cedar Hill restaurant on November 11th. Our goal is to make every guest feel special and unfortunately we fell short on a day where we serve more than 180,000 free meals as a small token to honor our Veterans and active military for their service, hence these actions do not reflect the beliefs of our brand. We are taking this very seriously and the leaders in our company are actively involved with the goal of making it right. Since the incident occurred, we have extended an apology and we are reaching out to the guest.”
