This is not what is meant by, "buttering-up the customer."
2001-09-07 12:25:27 AM  
The customer is never right. Never.
2001-09-07 12:28:29 AM  
I know where this employee is coming from.Doing tech support you can hear "customer is always right!customer is always right!"a lot,coming from total moronicans.

I think a bucketful of hot grease is a side order at Church's.
2001-09-07 12:31:20 AM  
I'd like to know what the woman actually said...
2001-09-07 12:37:37 AM  
Heh, I used to work at McDonalds, and lemme tell ya, I'd love to throw hot grease on every-farking-one in the restaraunt, INCLUDING the managers and asshole co-workers. It's rather hard to do though.
2001-09-07 12:39:12 AM  
And let that be a warning to the rest of ya...
2001-09-07 12:39:14 AM  
Why do foolish people get into fights at restaurants? Even if you win and you get your thighs or whatever the pissed off cook is going spit, piss, etc into it. She got off lucky, she could be digesting drain-o right now.
2001-09-07 12:43:08 AM  
Not bad Nanookanano, not bad. King of the quips.

And Skallas, I couldn't agree more. If there is one group of people on earth who's asses should be kissed, it's food handlers. They could mess us up if they so inclined.
2001-09-07 12:47:26 AM  
I smell a big-ass lawsuit. This is way better than hot coffee at McDonald's.
2001-09-07 12:48:29 AM  
So wait, the meal was Chicken Breasts, she wanted Thighs and he got grease on her

the meal was Breasts, she wanted drumsticks, and he go grease on her Thighs?... no

... aww fark it
2001-09-07 12:56:16 AM  
bull shiat.
if the customer wants thighs, give them thighs. If they want drum sticks give them drum farking sticks who gives fark?! if this guy had thrown oil at me I would have mounted the counter and kicked hs farken head in ,citing self defence against grevious bodily harm. sticky little punk. for sure , customers can be arseholes, but the solution to that is ...don't work in a chicken fast food joint or any service industry.
the customer may or may not be right but its irrelevant. without them there is no job for the monkeys.
2001-09-07 12:58:28 AM  
now that is the way to "employee of the month".....

congrates you little bastard.
2001-09-07 12:59:52 AM  
now, I don't really want to say I agree with this employee, or that this particular woman in any way deserved what happened to her, but as a former food service employee, I can at least appreciate this particular method of customer service.
2001-09-07 01:09:14 AM  
I've had jobs before where I wanted to put a foot up a customer's ass sideways, but permanently scarring someone with hot grease would be out of the question for me.
2001-09-07 01:10:15 AM  
The customer is always an asshole!

a cookie if you can name the movie and actor
2001-09-07 01:14:18 AM  
Some countries have laws that mandate a period of military service. The USA ought to have a law that everyone has to work in food service for a little while.

If you think the customer is always right, or that you deserve to have special treatment because you're spending your money, you've probably never been on the other side of the counter.

If you're not getting the service you want, shut the fark up and take your money elsewhere.

NightVis: Mallrats: Ben Affleck, of course.
"What, like the back of a Volkswagen?"
2001-09-07 01:23:11 AM  
Bigpeeler: That sounds a little like "damning with faint praise", but I appreciate it, anyway.
2001-09-07 01:29:43 AM  
Those wiley negroes...
2001-09-07 01:42:14 AM  
Bondulu: WTF kind of comment was that?
"Oh-fried chicken...they must be black."

Or just trolling?
2001-09-07 01:49:06 AM  
Estragon: Close but not quite;

NightVis: Jeff Anderson in Clerks

Must see for anyone who has ever worked any kind of retail or service job.

Disgruntled employee throws hot grease on smart-ass costumer who claimed the "customer is always right

Wow...if hot coffee can earn you $1 million at McDonald's, just try to imagine how much hot grease would net you (even after all the skin grafting surgery)! And it's not like it's hard to find a McDonald's employee who has a terrible attitude problem. Heck, if I wasn't such a damn coward, I'd do this! I'd be set for life.

Also, this headline reminds me of the scene from Oz where one of Eli Zabitz's coworkers smarted off to him and Eli retaliated by throwing sizzling bacon grease on him.

Service industry fights back. Good, let the biatch burn.
Any moron who walks in off the street and thinks they're special should get an education like this woman did.
"No lady, you're just another customer. For eight bucks an hour I'm not going to pretend I like you. fark off and don't come back."
2001-09-07 02:16:25 AM  
Read the article people. It said the crazy lady is sueing for 50,000 dollars. That's right no more zeroes after that number. not 500 G's, not 5 million, not 50 million... just $50,000. I can't believe she's not going for at least 5 mill.
Yes, I've been on the other side of "customer" "service" and it royally sucks. But it also sucks not to get what you want when you've clearly asked for something else. Rounded_Bits got it right, take your money elsewhere.
2001-09-07 02:16:51 AM  
Estragon, you'll dig this.

Monday of last week, I'm in my vehicle and I had to take an unwanted detour through north St.Louis (known locally as Little Africa). So I'm tooling down through the traffic lights minding my own, when I hear this "CLUNK" on the hood of my car. Couple more blocks and "CLUNK". I look and see a couple of chicken bones on my hood.

As I approach the next light, I pull in behind this ratty-ass powder blue mid-80's Cadillac. Inside are two fat ol' heifers killing a big box of Popeye's Fried Chicken. These pigs are sucking the meat off the bone and flipping the bones out of the sunroof (and on MY car!). They had chicken bones from a previous feast laying in the back window!! Aaaahhhhhh.

Now tell me. Kinda hard NOT to stereotype people sometimes isn't it.
2001-09-07 02:18:26 AM  
"Any moron who walks in off the street and thinks they're special should get an education like this woman did."

Her "education" being permanent scarring from hot grease? You're quite the humanitarian, eh? Perhaps you could get yourself a fun job in a Chinese torture chamber. They love people like you.
2001-09-07 02:23:04 AM  
Xanthier: I concede Jeff Anderson was the first (in the Kevin Smith NJ series) to say it, but the sentiment was repeated by Affleck just before Jason Lee farks Shannen Doherty in the elevator.

Hmm...I think that in the Clerks/Mallrats day sequence, Shannon Hamilton might have said it before Randall. I think I'll just go to sleep now and not worry about it rather than figure out when the funeral happens.

Now tell me. Kinda hard NOT to stereotype people sometimes isn't it.

And the millions of others who take their food home and eat normally go unnoticed. Kind of hard to think rationally eh?
2001-09-07 02:42:00 AM  
I dunno. Considering the customer verbally abused the guy, I don't blame him for flinging hot grease on her. She should consider it a lesson in politeness when dealing with unhinged people working crappy jobs who have hot grease near at hand.
2001-09-07 02:49:00 AM  
i've known a couple of people that pissed in the KFC grease. Jason Alexander won't like to hear that.
2001-09-07 03:07:30 AM  
how the hell did the caption manage to spell "customer" right once, but spell it "costumer" first?

Or was the person that got treated to the hot-oil bath a maker of theatrical garments?

Clerks: just because they serve you, doesn't mean they like you. (screw Jay and Silent Bob. Bring back Randal! He's..a berzerker..)

Oh yeah, and Customer is always right? No way. I did my time in food service--a month or so as a host at a TOURIST restaurant in Waikiki, where the seats are almost all visible from the doorway or the sidewalk, and practically every garlanded and sunburned SOB and his brood kept wanting to override my placings and grab the seat that appeals to them from outside the door. How those waitresses don't go crazy dealing with the bastards, I'll never know. And yes, please don't mention tech support.
"What? Why can't you make 100 copies of this tape that I have here by tomorrow, I want to give it out to my students to watch as part of the course."
"Well, um...that's a lot of copies, we don't have the equipment. We're set up to make about five copies at a time, which is usually more than we need. And where was this tape from again?"
"It's just some shows that I taped off of cable TV. Couple different channels, few months ago."
"Thought so. Well, there's also this thing called copyright law, and..."
"I don't understand! Why must you be so mean? I just want to..." ad nauseum.

It called playing the numbers Skallas.

Blacks make up a small percentage of the population where I live, yet do the most,,well I'm not getting into this whole argument.

I don't know if you read my post yesterday, but I explained to a gentleman who like most liberals, tend to bend over backwards for minorities, I explained to him that in the past 14 years, I have been burglarized (home), ripped off/vandalized twice (car & work van), had my motorcycle stolen, my 6 year old daughter sexually molested and my wife raped. All by blacks.

These incidents happened at different locations, different times, different people. Hell, the a-hole who got my baby girl was a 'friend' of my wife's. Someone she thought she knew despite my warnings.

And a couple of years later, when another one got my wife, he had the balls to call me at my work and brag about it while telling me what a "horrible piece of ass" my wife was. He did this on a speaker phone while all his bros laughed in the background.

Needless to say, it's been a rough time. I had to sell my gun for fear of going of the deep end and using it. And what's funny about all of this is that I'm half black.

So to all the liberal namby-pamby do-gooders out there who think they have a grasp on society today, you don't. Not even close. And God help anyone of you bleeding-hearts when you get attacked. The shock of reality may be too much to bear.

I'm not condemning a whole race of people. But I am warning people that it's alot worse than the social programs and pie charts indicate. Be careful and be warned.

And keep on Farking. (Didn't mean to get so heavy everyone. It helps to vent now and then. No someone buy me a beer.)
2001-09-07 03:13:35 AM  
I also like how the woman undoubtably pruned the argument that led to the fight.
Her request for more chicken probably didn't set off this dude just like that. Bets on this being either:

A. a trumped up Ananova story
B. the real result of an hour-long ordeal at the counter as the woman waffled, changed her order, screwed up the money, changed her mind again, took the tray, returned it two minutes later saying there was something wrong with it, and so on and so forth.
2001-09-07 03:20:31 AM  
Jeezus, Bigpeeler, where the fark do you live?
2001-09-07 03:40:15 AM  
damn... are we back to writing books as posts again?

WHY, people....... get to the point.
2001-09-07 03:47:02 AM  
If pot were legal it could have been different, instead of burning her teets he could of said lets go burn a "J", eat a bucket of thighs....and go from there:)
2001-09-07 03:51:43 AM  
The point is irrelevant.
2001-09-07 03:51:56 AM  
I should've taken 500 words to say that...
2001-09-07 05:59:22 AM  
If a post is too long (and thus possibly too taxing) for you to read... scroll down to the next sound bite. Damn, people have a short attention span these days.
2001-09-07 06:02:48 AM  
Can we say... "Service Industry Sucks!"?
2001-09-07 06:26:23 AM  
Were the second degree burns on her breasts or the chicken breasts?
2001-09-07 06:38:16 AM  
You know... I have to admit, as a customer... I am getting fed up with cranky-assed service staff who act like being there, doing their job, that they APPLIED FOR and ACCEPTED and GET PAID to do is somehow a reason to give me shiat! I think that we, as customers should be allowed to do and say whatever the hell we feel like and that these asswipes, too stupid or lazy to get a better education=job=reason to be civil should get down on their knees and blow us!
Especially the really hot, prissy, 18 to 25 year olds girls with those really tight sweet asses, in those sexy tummy shirts...
Ooops... Did I drift off into another thought again?
TO BAD! The Farker is ALWAYS right!
2001-09-07 07:42:29 AM  

My advice to you is to leave that hell hole as soon as possible.

Just read his post, he did.
2001-09-07 08:17:26 AM  
Considering this happened in Maywood, Illinois....She's lucky he didn't put a cap in her ass. Not a nice place.
2001-09-07 09:04:16 AM  
do what white people have been doing for a long time,
move. I would have shot the worthless pieces of crap that did your wife and kid. And I would have gotten away with it too. Just takes a little planning.

But still, the story is ripe for all the racial stereotype jokes you have ever heard.
Just like tornado and trailer park stories.

So as long as everyone realizes that posting to Fark is not going to solve all the social injustice in the world,
but is a place to be honest or funny or whatever in your opinions then say it and move on with your life.
2001-09-07 09:14:40 AM  
only $50,000? Church's is getting off lucky. If I could throw some hot grease on a person like that and it would only cost me $50,000, I would go for it
2001-09-07 09:19:19 AM  
Fast Times at Church's Chicken: "If you don't shut up I'm gonna throw grease on 100% of your ass!"
2001-09-07 09:41:52 AM  
Estragon: My bad.. Yes It was actually in both. It sucks to wake up in the middle of the night and get one of those revalations. "I'm a farking moron"
