Learn how to use food for self-defense!

Worlds biggest food fight

I’m trying to remember if I’ve ever had a good job or a job I liked, most of my jobs have been jobs from hell. Most if not all of them have been like abusive boyfriends. My first job was fun, it really was, it was filled with adventure and danger. My first job was at Wendy’s…..it was the first and only Wendy’s franchise in the inner city and the first to have a $.99 and $1 menu, that was back when hip hop was still clean and fun and NWA were the only group out like that……

I am telling my age, anyway, back in the day- people on public assistance- got their checks on the 1st and the 15th of each month and on these days and in between Wendy’s was a mad house. Now the one thing, I became immune to, was being called” Bitches” and “Hoes” on a regular basis by our customers. During these times, the customers were down right vivcious over $.99 burgers, fries, and frostys’.

It went something like this, ” Welcome to Wenndy’s How May I Help You, this is Mimi, May I Please Take your order” Customer yells as if I’m hard of hearing, “I want 15 jr bacon cheese burgers, 6 biggie fries, 8 frostys, 3 single burgers one with extra pickles!” I repeat the order back to make sure it’s correct and say, ” Please drive up to the window” Now when the woman comes to the window she looks pissed off and irritated, I say hello, she ignores me, I give her the total, she gives me the money, I close the window and wait for her order to be complete as I take the next order.

Ok, her order is ready, I slide the window open and hand her the food she ordered, I turn around and close the window and get ready to walk away and all of a sudden she begins to blow her horn. I reopen the window and she begins to say, ” You stupid bitch didn’t I tell you I wanted extra pickles!”. I ignore the new name she’s given me and remain calm. I reply, “They did put extra pickles on the burger” she then says, “Well it aint enough I want more!” So I take her burger and tell Ishmial to put more pickles on the burger. I go back to the window and present her with the burger with even more pickles. I try to take another order and then, she blows the horn again.

This time she is enraged, “Stupid Bitch didn’t I tell you I wanted extra pickles, you fucking Stupid Ass Hoe!” Now by this time she is screaming at the top of her lungs and my manager Keith hears her yelling and comes over to the window and asks her, “Why are you talking to my employee that way and she responds, I asked her stupid ass twice for extra pickles, so Keith takes the burger back from her, throws it in the trash, mind you she started cussing Keith out in the process and he decides to make the burger hisself Keith gets a fresh bun ,places a fresh meat patty on the bun and then grabs a handful of pickles and shoved them on the bun, now mind you Keith was about 6’2 1/2 at least…….. so imagine how big his hands were and how many pickles went on that burger!

So he opens the window and hurls the freshly wrapped burger at the enraged woman and tells her. “You wanted extra pickles, now you got extra pickles now get the fuck out of my line!” The woman looked shocked as if she could not believe Keith’s behavior and finally drove away in silence. I almost peed on myself from laughing when I saw the big handful of pickles he put on that burger. Was that the first or the last time I was called out of my name over a burger……I would have to say no, nope being verbally assaulted on a regular was nothing to quit over, it took us to get robbed before I did that! But that’s another story…..I was 15 years old at the time.
