From servers to fast food employees to grocery store cashiers, those in the food industry know all too well that dealing with rude customers is just an inherent part of the job. Yet sometimes a customer can take things too far, as is more than evident in these awful statements that were uttered to employees.
"When I went to university, I worked at Taco Bell. Usually, I worked the drive-through. One night, a car pulled up to receive their order, when the driver stated, 'I thought I was hungry, then I got a look at you. I think I lost my appetite.'
While handing her the change that was due, I remarked, 'And I thought I left a town of incompetent hicks, bound for a city with more intelligence and culture. I guess I was wrong, about that.'
The next day, the customer showed up to the restaurant and complained to my boss that I was 'rude to her.' I explained the situation. My boss smiled, looked at me, and said, 'Yup. Still one of my best employees!' I apologized to my boss, later, for the trouble I may have caused. He told me that my witty comebacker was nothing compared to what he may have done. Sounds like my customer was lucky I'm just ugly. I could have been ugly AND mean, like my boss" (Source).
