Hmm.  I wonder if there is any unspecified reason why a man in Georgia would have a huge hang-up about someone else not being sufficiently deferential and polite.

The employee then refused to serve the man, who demanded a refund and again appeared upset because the refund was made in all coins, according to the report.

Baaaahahahaha!

I'm sure the word "uppity" came out of somebody's mouth somewhere in the exchange.

The officer banned the upset customer from the restaurant for two years for disorderly behavior.

"NEXT WINDOW, please"?

Who the FARK do you think you are!? You need to ask if I would like to go to the next window to pick up my McHeartAttack, not demand it. Fark this, I want to speak to the manager.

Wow, a Karen in the new non-gender-biased era. Good for him! Someone's got to be the first to say "I was born a man, but deep inside, I've always known that I was a Karen, and I'm done hiding in the closet! Now, get me your manager, RIGHT NOW!".

I didn't know cops could just ban you from things. I thought that was sort of up to the business.

Many years ago I did one of those black Friday things at best buy where you camped out all night (was getting a bunch of stuff for a business I had, and it just seemed like a fun social thing to do with a few other people). Well just before the store opens, some guy tries to cut in line.  Cop tells him he needs to go to the back of the line. Guy that was in number 3 spot (who had been there like 12 hours) yells out "yeah, carry your ass to the back of the line. " Cop tells the guy he can join him or get arrested.

Property owners or their tenants can tell people not to visit the property.  To make it absolutely clear that any such visit will be treated as trespassing, sometimes a police officer will be the one who notifies the person being so told.

The questions I have for this are many:

1) As in Starship Troopers would say - "Do you want to know more?" My answer "YES!!!!!"
2) Were Drugs involved
3) Was he wearing a mask?  I have 2 different fast food joints, one needs a mask and one doesn't.
4) Was he wearing pants?
5) Could the drive through camera NOT see his MAGA hat?  And that means you must always be polite to someone who worships Trump?

A transcript of the entire exchange would be helpful.   What we know is that he placed and order and paid at the first window, then was told to pull forward.   We also know that when he pulled forward, he demanded a refund and the cashier paid him entirely in coins.  This upset him further and led to police involvement.

So that exchange at the first window had to be something special.   Really need more details about that.

He probably ordered something off menu, like a 1/4 pounder with cheese without the cheese. That'll delay your order and they offer to run it out to as you're parked in the pick up stall. no biggie. This guy is just a dick.

When I managed a Radio Shack I'd ban several people a month, usually for proselytizing while "shopping." I had to call a cop to issue the trespass notice because it has legal authority, thus it has to be done by a sworn officer or a judge at the behest of the property owner or their duly appointed agent. This was in Indiana.

whither_apophis: Holdin' up the line at the drive thru? He's lucky he didn't get shot by the people behind him


Everytime I've been delayed behind another vehicle, inevitably the car is driven by a woman who insists waiting until at the speaker to ask each and every damn kid in the car what it wants?  Then, at the 2nd window, takes the tray or bag, opens it and hands items one by one to each and every damn kid instead of pulling forward to another, out of the way spot, to dole out the food.

My parents knew what we wanted and/or would eat without discussion. I never expected to order because the All-Knowing Being driving already knew what I like and would order that to prevent unnecessary conversation with me.At restaurant, if a server attempted to put a menu in my hand, it was intercepted with a "I'll order for him, I know what he likes" and a smile to me so I knew I would have an enjoyable treat coming. They didn't put me on the spot to suddenly make a decision, causing delay and consternation, and perhaps regret when something unexpected, that I very well probably ordered, was presented before me. I had an uncle with five daughters who was perhaps more surly:"You'll get what you get and be thankful, or you can watch the rest of us eat. You're too young to make a decision yet."

My parents didn't want to make me unhappy, they just wanted to avoid a "scene" or delay. They knew what I liked and would order it for me. The perfect servants. When I grew older, I was not only allowed to choose for myself, I was able to process a complicated menu and know what was and was not available. "Servers have jobs to do for other people too, not just you. Decide what you want before we get there and don't dawdle." To this day, I have my order firmly in mind before I have to order.

People go out to eat, they choose the restaurant in advance. Why do they always act like everything is confusing when it comes time to order?

But, I did like that the adults knew what I wanted. I miss it sometimes. When I see parents asking what a small child wants in a drive-through, I wonder if they don't know their children?

Got into a slight argument with a high school girlfriend over the use of the phrase "make love to you" instead of "make love with you."

Somehow in her mind, there was a vast difference between "with" and "to," she insisted I was disrespectful or some crap like that because I had said "to." Incredible.

Generally, the cops don't ban them.  A representative of the owner of the business (the manager) bans them.  The cops informed him of the ban in writing and will keep a copy of that writing on file so they can arrest him in the future without any other reason.  He's been told in writing that he is not welcome there and a cop on the scene witnessed (and performed) the telling.  It formalizes the process without wasting the court's time with a protective order.  The court would only need to get involved if he goes back there and gets arrested.

Watch Cops or Live PD and you'll see the process in action.

Cop:  Sir, the manager says you're not allowed to come back here ever.
Drunk idiot:  Doug said that?
Cop:  Yes.

That's why many new buildings have 2 lines.  You've got a 50/50 chance of getting thru clean before the merge.  Actually, better, because a lot of people don't seen to grasp the concept and will line up for the inside speaker, ignoring the outside lane.  Of course, that brings up the issue of slack-jawed yokels who don't know how to merge.

There is a thing with a lot of modern parents that we need to ask our children everything, and make everything a choice. Like it's empowering

I had this issue very much so with my ex wife. Our daughter was a challenging child, even as a toddler. she would throw a lot of tantrums and fusses. And her mom insisted on making everything a choice. Which pair of mittens do you want to wear, which of these three snow pants do you like best, do you want this thing or that thing or that thing. Often not even binary choices but triple and quadruple.

People don't always realize that choices are a kind of stressor. It is often easier for us when we only have one selection, even as adults. It's not fair to a 2 year old to put constant pressure on them to make decisions, then get mad when it takes 45 minutes to get them dressed for Canadian winter.

But my ex never did listen, and the issues our daughter has had growing up have always been "someone needs to help us fix this" instead of "how do we help her".

Well, it is a small but rather important difference.

"With" implies mutual consent and cooperation, and enjoyment.

"To" can be inferred to mean using her as a human fleshlight to get off with.

You just reminded me of the first time my parents took me to a "nice" restaurant and allowed me to order for myself.

I ordered a steak, and when the waiter asked me how I would like it I said "Uh... uh... cooked?"

My dad laughed his ass off, and then finished the order for me.
