Friday Fuckwit

Good evening punters. Another Friday, another weekend. This one's a bit busy since Clare has kind of left home. I hope to get her right out the door by tomorrow. There's a blog post in that. My son has a new throbbing  red hobby . . a Honda CBR and I'm doing lunch on Sunday so next week should have something worth visiting.

In the meantime, for your reading pleasure:

Burger King customer Francisco Perez was handed a receipt with the message ‘Fuck You’ on it. Not once, but twice. Those responsible were grilled – and fired.
The customer didn’t make a whopping order, but that surely doesn’t excuse the rude receipt.
In total, he spent $9.22 on a Double Whopper with cheese, onion rings and a small drink in the outlet in Sacramento, California.


Perez told KCRA 3 TV: ‘I’m embarrassed. It’s humiliating.’
To make matters worse, when the red-faced Perez pointed out the profanity to the worker who gave it to him, he just laughed.  It must have been confusing, because Perez certainly wasn’t aware of any beef that the employee had with him.  Burger King HQ clearly agreed that the message was a flaming insult, because heads rolled without any further ado. 
A spokesman said: ‘Burger King Corp and the franchisee that owns and operates this restaurant deeply regret that this incident occurred. The franchisee has taken immediate corrective action and both the manager and employee are being terminated. The franchisee will be reaching out to the guest directly
Have a good one folks! I'll be going back to work for a little resty poo on Monday.  The clips irreverent and irrelevant but it has that word in it.

Thank you so much for saying what you said last night. I was starting to feel a bit desperate. Not for me, for those people out there

True story - my best friend since childhood's older brother is the head of all of Burger King. I've known him since I was 9.

Great story. Have a fun weekend.

"The franchisee will be reaching out to the guest directly". That is a marvelous sentence and probably sums up in just ten words most of what is wrong with the current age.

Brian Miller said...

Huh, well head's rolled with that little incident FOR SURE! Wonder what would have happened had the receipt gone to someone else...possibly NOT as high strung?

Hmmm I think I'd be more worried about what they were putting in the burgers*!*

Who eats at Burger King? Oh...wait...me on Tuesday...

I'm tired and tipsy.

Our cutie smarty office gal confessed to me today that she told her parents she was thinking about moving out. "Time to be a big girl," she said to them, she said...

Why does this remind me of the unfortunate pair who renewed their wedding vows in the Maldives recently? The world has gone tip over head even without global warming!

I think if I were him I would have "accidentally" knocked a few things off the counter on the way out. Preferably nice messy things like tomato ketchup or sugar or coffee.

e said...

Throbbing red hobby, indeed! I agree with Alan...

Hmmm. I remember my first job out of uni was at the ANZ bank as a 'trainee bank manager'. We had to insert a 'with compliments' slip in everything we did.

It was 1989, so with the ingenious use of scissors, sticky tape and a photocopier, I made a couple for some workmates (the couple that I liked, not the others) that read 'Eat Shit and Die'. One accidentally got sent out......

Wow ... but now I want to hear the story behind that 'Fuck you'. Was it printed? Written on in biro? Tomato sauce? Blood?? Who did it - the manager, or the server?

Not sure I wouldn't have scratched my head and laughed it off, but I suppose it would depend on my mood.
