Worker: *rudely* What do you want?
Me: Hi, Id like a cheese pizza and a six-inch veggie on wheat please.
Worker: You dont need that much food.
Me: Excuse me?
Worker: Youre too small to need that much. Im not gonna sell you pizza just so you can barf it back up. Just stick with your veggies.
Me: Let me speak to your manager.
Worker: No way, Im not going to go get my manager just because you want to pretend you eat.
(Before I can reply, the cashier, who has overheard everything, hurries over and hip checks the rude worker out of the way.)
Cashier: Maam, I am very sorry. Well get what you asked for, and Ill get the manager up here for you immediately.
Me: Thank you.
Worker: No way! Im not going to let you stick up for this anorexic b****!
(At this point, there is a small line behind me and the elderly woman behind me speaks up.)
Elderly Woman: *to the worker* You say one more word and I will haul your butt over this counter and tan it like your mother should have, you disrespectful little turd!
(The others in line laugh. The manager shows up then, and I relate the story. The worker denies it, even though the cashier and other customers back me up.)
Manager: Well, well just get that ready for you, and consider this matter resolved.
Elderly Woman: So, youre just going to allow him to speak to your customers that way? Excuse me for a moment while I make a call.
(She calls someone and says a name that makes both the manager and the workers faces go sheet white.)
Elderly Woman: Okay *her phone towards the manager* My husband would like to speak with you.
(The manager and worker vanish into the back, making denials about what happened over the phone. The woman smiles)
Elderly Woman: My husband owns this particular franchise. Ive been in here enough that youd think those turds would know it. [Cashier], please put this lovely young womans order, as well as these patiently waiting peoples orders, on the house.
Me: Thank you, but you really dont have to do that.
Elderly Woman: No, I dont, but what the h***. You look great, by the way!
Me: Thank you, for everything you did.
Elderly Woman: Hey, it livens up my day!
(After I ate and was leaving, I saw an elderly manthe elderly womans husband and store ownerenter the store and berate the manager and worker. Both of them were in tears as he fired them both.)
