So I chuckle, until she actually has her hands on the turkey and starts to try to take it. I was shocked and asked what she is doing. She said, "I thought you were restocking the turkey, and since you were holding it I felt it was better to grab it from you then have to bend over and grab one and potentially hurt my back!"
"Wait, I don't work here…"
She got really upset and grabbed her husband's attention. He looked at me like I am some snot-nosed teenager, even though I am pushing 30. “Son, you give her that turkey, and maybe I won't report you to your manager.”
I just look at him and say, "I don't work here."
He then raised his voice at me. "I TRIED TO BE FAIR WITH YOU! GIVE HER THE TURKEY ON THE COUNT OF THREE. ONE… TWO…"
Thankfully, the manager was close by and interrupted him
The man looks at him and says, "Your employee over here is refusing to give my wife that turkey!"
The manager said to him, "Sir, this man doesn't work here. Please calm down and I will grab another turkey for you, otherwise I will have to ask you to leave."
The man's face turned red and he just lost it, "HOW DARE YOU TALK TO ME WITH SUCH DISRESPECT!! I WILL HAVE YOU KNOW THAT THIS IS NO MAN, THIS IS A BOY WHO NEEDS TO BE TAUGHT A LESSON IN MANNERS AND I SHOULD GIVE YOU THE SAME TREATMENT TOO!"
His wife looked at me like a teacher would at a misbehaving student and said, "Your mother must have been a horrible parent, if this is the child that she raised."
Oh no. My mother just died a few weeks ago and this....no.
"You know what....here. Take it! Take this stupid turkey. Go. Have it! It is not worth putting up with this Jerry Springer act. So have your damn turkey!" I slammed it into the their cart and stormed out.
I thought that them, but Mr. Anger Management decides that I didn't excuse myself from the table properly enough.
I'd never been punched in the face before, so I can mark that off my bucket list. So yeah, when the cops asked if I wanted to press charges against him, you bet I did!
I didn't get my turkey.
9. The Burger KING.
I work as a manager at a fast food restaurant. On this particular day, I had an open shift (4:30am-2pm) and after finishing, decided I'd pop into the local shopping centre to pick up a couple of things I need and also grab a bite to eat. After my shift, I changed out of my shirt into a plain t-shirt and wore a hoodie over top. Essentially, I was wearing black nondescript pants and a blue hoodie. Anyway, I get my shopping done and decide to head down to the food court to grab a bite to eat. Burger in hand, I sit down at a table and pop my headphones in to listen to some music while I eat my lunch.
All of a sudden, someone slams their hand on my table down in front of me. (continued...)
