So today went to dd and ds to a fast food resturant after we went to cinema. I was in the que ordering and a middle age man starts shouting at the staff. This man was complaining about his burger. So we were giving our order to a young boy who was probably around 16 and this man starts shouting at the boy rudely and he was trying to explain that it was to do with the burgers seasoning (something only that line). So a more experiance member of staff begins to speak to the man meanwhile we are still ordering. To which the man then throughs the burger at the boy/other member of staff. Ive now got ketchup on my clothes and so does dd ds and the other member of staff.

So as the man leaves i tell him hes should be ashamed of his behavior and that hes a complete twat. I said to the boy does this happen often, he said quite regulary.

I know i probably should not have used the word twat but he was so rude to the boy/staff calling them stupid, thick and scum. DD and Ds are both teenagers so its not like they were young.

What a horrible experience for everyone concerned. If he wanted a five star menu he should have gone to the Ritz!

YANBU
I think I would've lost my temper with that man too.

On a separate note I'm trying to break my addiction to coke zero (I've been off it for 3 weeks) and your username is giving me cravings... grin

Magpie sorry smile . Tried to give up too its really hard.

Yanbu. Wouldn't throwing an object regardless of what it is be classed as assault? It'd look great on the twat's criminal record 'assault charge in respect of throwing unseasoned burger'

That rude old geezer sounds like my dad! What an arsehole!
If it was my dad he'd have told you how the animal was slaughtered before you ate the burger!

You can tell a lot by a person by the way they treat waiters, serving staff etc.

I would have simply said that.

DinosaursRoar Mon 03-Aug-15 21:35:16

Quiz - I agree with the OP that it's reasonable to call a male who isn't old enough to vote a boy.

And it's also reasonable to call someone who behaves like a twat a twat.

You can tell a lot *about a person

IloveCokeZero Mon 03-Aug-15 21:36:24

But he was so un reasonable. Okay you don't like the burger no need to swear be rude etc.

Yanbu OP, What a twat and how horrible if that staff member had been your child taking that at work!

I remember being a teenager and my dad taking me and my friend to mcdonald's as a treat after the pictures we had only been in there when 2 men started arguing with 2 young poor members of staff who were probably still at school.

Things got out of hand (over a mcChicken sandwich with mayo that shouldn't have had the mayo on it apparently!) and one of them picked the fire extinguisher of the wall and threw it behind the counter at the staff, My dad jumped in to protect the young girl it was aimed at in the process ripping his own jacket and taking a smack to the face, the staff didn't bat an eyelid! Said it happened all the time.

My mum was fuming when my dad told him hed got his coat torn and rung up the manager to complain about and we got a voucher for £10 to use in McDonalds. Still gets talked about at family parties - the day of the voucher from Maccy d's grin

You were deff nbu!

I worked in McDonald's when I was 16, I was spat at, had milkshake thrown at me and one particularly lovely man tried to drag me out of the drive thru window by the front on my shirt hmm all for the joyus sum of £2.70 an hour confused

IloveCokeZero Mon 03-Aug-15 21:46:55

Gosh Iccle.

Smokeyrobinson Mon 03-Aug-15 21:51:35

YANBU - that man sounds like a twat of the highest order.

lucylooloo Mon 03-Aug-15 22:00:43

He was a twat. And its not like you used the C word, YANBU

I wonder if they have CCTV? In their shoes I would want to make sure men like that were barred from every branch of McD's.

People chucked stuff at me on a regular basis when I was at Maccas. It sucks

Gottagetmoving Tue 04-Aug-15 13:31:54

I am surprised you were so restrained,..I would have been tempted to pour a bottle of sauce over his stupid head grin

Inforabumpyride Tue 04-Aug-15 14:06:47
