A man angrily berated fast-food employees and nearly hit a worker with his truck when a drive-thru clerk told him the restaurant was out of french fries, police said.
Gregg Luttman, 22, was charged with assault, reckless endangerment and other charges stemming from the confrontation at the Burger King restaurant in Sandy Township about 5 p.m. New Year's Day.
Township police Sgt. Rod Fairman said Luttman made an obscene gesture to the drive-thru clerk, then entered the building with another man. Luttman repeatedly cursed at the restaurant staff then walked back to his vehicle; when he noticed restaurant workers taking down his license number, Luttman revved his pickup in reverse, nearly hitting one of the employees, Fairman said.
All I can say is, wow. That certainly ranks up their with the guy who threw his lit cigarette at me (missing my face by inches) and then got pretty damn indignant because we 1) wouldn't let him use the phone to call his father, the attorney; 2) kicked him out the store and 3) wouldn't let him or his friends back in to use the bathroom. Odd, that.
Or the drunk guy who threw his drink at me. That was fun. I got to ride in a police cruiser and ID the punk.
Or the dumbass who jumped over the fence that seperated our parking lot from the next-door McDonald's, and landed on the hood of my car. There was still an impression of that moron's head on the car when I got rid of it last month. Oh, and for more amusement, this moron got a job at Burger King a few months later...amazing that he didn't last that long.
I could go on, but I won't. Randy probably has even more Amusing Stories of Dumbassitude®, since he worked at BK longer than I did.
Did I ever mention how glad I am not to be working at Burger King anymore?
