What a wussy. If he'd only been armed, this whole contretemps would have ended in a brief standoff and then a friendly exchange of fire, as is only fit and proper. The real trick is to spend your entire life at the range and practising your draw. That cranky waitress wouldn't have lasted a second if she'd tried this with a proper southern gentleman.

That's exactly the kind of service I expect at a Waffle House.

She "tipped her and everything". After sending her order back twice, and being held at gunpoint, she still paid the tab and left a tip? I can't believe nobody videotaped the interaction. I'd like to see it.

I could tell some stories about rude, scary, weirdo graveyard shift Denny's patrons. If I worked there now (*shudder*), hell yes I'd conceal carry my little bitty Ruger .380, if only for walking to my car at zero dark thirty. I used to sit at the counter and wait for cops to come in before I could walk to my car.

You order to go. You pay and tip. You walk about three feet, look in the bag. You turn around and say, "Hey, I ordered this with cheese." and you realize it is 3 am and it is the end of this lady's shift and you just farked up.

Probably walked in there and said, I'd like my order smattered, colored, and wafted, and who is supposed to know what to do with that?

If we're just making up stories to paint the victim as the bad guy, I prefer to assume he arrived hallucinating and waving a katana while screaming its name, Cheese Eggs.

I came to say because it's Waffle House, but I bet I'm beat.

Anyways, some people in the bottle violence by teenage girls, feels that a bottle is just as dangerous as guns [so guns should not be regulated, is their point].

He should just have grabbed a ketchup bottle from the table, and the cutlery.

Maybe they pay upfront like at McD? Likely actually, or they'll just have drunk and or homeless people eating for free.

From TFA it sounded like he got out of there when she drew the gun.

This is just wrong.  Waffle House does not have cheese.  They have something that is yellow, pre-sliced, and likely made from vegetable oil instead of milk.

"They must have some good eggs and cheese in there. It's never that serious," Franklin said.

NEVER THAT SERIOUS!? That kind of flippant attitude is why you have a gun pointed at your face. WAFFLE HOUSE IS SERIOUS BUSINESS! Act accordingly.

I didn't think she would shoot then she cocked it back. So, I was like maybe she is about to do something. Now, it's time for me to turn into Rambo and get out of there," Franklin said.

Yeah. If anything he should have said "like George Washington." He knew how to retreat and keep things together. Then you can send an emissary to France and have them send a team to help handle the waitress. Maybe that farmer that bulldozed the McDonald's a few years ago, if he is still alive. Pretty sure a firearm carried even by an American waitress wouldn't punch through the blade.

The more prudent action in a cheese dispute is to call security on the customer

I thought you only got the handgun when you ordered hash browns "all the way."

At least the other restaurant patrons covered and scattered.

I'd wager he was being abusive. It's never just about the eggs.

In case you haven't been out in public since the pandemic let me break it down for you. People are crazy.
I mean serving the general public has always sucked but since the pandemic kicked off the number of threats, assaults and outright murder of people in the service industry has risen sharply.

Add to that these people were labeled 'essential' and had to keep going to their shiat paying jobs while the pandemic raged risking themselves and their families for a wage that at best could be called a starvation wage. The mental toll on them must have been terrible and that always leads to trouble in the end. Tips have dropped and hostile encounters have increased, its prudent to do what you can to maybe be able to protect yourself since management and the law won't.

So yeah I can see why you might want a gun if you are in these jobs dealing with these asshats day in and day out.

For what it's worth, my local Waffle House forbids carrying guns while inside, though all they can really do is ask you to leave and have you arrested for trespassing if you don't.

She'll get transferred to another location, somewhere else on the Marta line.  Waffle House is not about to fire someone willing to work in combat settings, like Marietta St, in downtown Atlanta.
