This is my buddy Andy. He's a self proclaimed "foodie"... he's the guy that takes pics of his food and then you'll see it on FB, Instagram, Twitter, etc. But, the guy actually makes money reviewing restaurants.
Anyways, on Tuesday he text me and asked if he's ever had a waitress confront me about a bad tip. I told him no and he tells me that it just happened to him. He was at a new Chinese buffet in the Cities and when he was finished with his meal, he left a dollar on the table... upon walking out into the parking lot, the "waitress" came running out and starting berating him about his lousy tip. He "waitressing" consisted of bringing him a soda.
So, was $1 too cheap? Was he wrong?
THEN, this morning I see THIS story!
An Idaho waitress was arrested and charged with felony battery on a police officer and misdemeanor resisting and obstructing an officer, after she fought with the cops following an alleged altercation with a customer about poor service.
Boise Police officers arrived at PHO 79 on Saturday after the victim was allegedly struck in the face by 29-year-old Truc Huynh following a service complaint.
"She hit the customer. I hear boom. I go out and tell her no no no. That's it.," Pho 79 owner Henry Do told KBO.
Officers saw that the victim had a bruised jaw and confronted Huynh.
“When officers suggested they could speak in a more private area of the restaurant, Huynh grabbed a butter knife and stepped back into a fighting stance, verbally challenging the officers,” according to a Boise Police Department news release. “Officers persuaded Huynh to eventually put the knife down and she was taken into custody. After being handcuffed, Huynh continued to resist, kicking an officer twice in the leg.” Read more here.
