A**hole Takes Revenge On A Bratty Child By Buying Every Pie At Burger King
I think everyone has had the experience of being in public and having to endure the screams of an unruly child. Of course, the general public always thinks it’s mom’s fault, so this guy who endured the screams of a bratty child while he was in line at Burger King and took it upon himself to take revenge on said child is being lauded as some kind of hero. He’s not a hero. He’s an asshole.
The guy posted his story to Reddit this week:
“So a while ago I had decided to treat myself and go to Burger King. I hadn’t had the greatest of days and I had a headache coming on. It was a very long line and I was at the end of it waiting patiently. When behind me comes this woman yapping on her cellphone with a little monster of a child. This kid was out of control, screaming, punching his mother throwing around a gameboy whenever something didn’t go right in the game. The mother didn’t seem to pay any attention to him and his continued yelling of ‘I want a Fucking PIE’.”
I’m already rolling my eyes at “treat myself and go to Burger King” and “I had a headache coming on.” Seriously? People throw around the term “special snowflake” in regards to bratty kids all the time, but have you ever been to a Burger KIng? Why would you expect it to be some kind of relaxing respite from your oncoming headache? Also – great idea to throw a sodium bomb at a migraine.
“After about 5 minutes of the line with these people behind me, I had gone from a headache to a full on migraine, but nothing was going to stop me from getting those burgers. I calmly turn and ask her nicely if she can please calm or quiet her child down. Immediately she gets up in my face telling me I can’t tell her nothing about raising her child and to mind my own business. I nod and turn around, shes still yelling at the back of my head when the child cries out again how he wants a pie, the mother consoles him, calling him sweety and ensuring they’ll get pies for lunch because she loves him so much.”
Yeah, I call bullshit. What mother in her right mind is going to call her kid sweetie after he’s used the term “fucking pie?” How old is this kid?
“All I can think of is how the people behind me ruined my splurge and gave me this headache. I then decide to ruin their day. I order every pie they have left in addition to my burgers. Turned out to be 23 pies in total, I take my order and walk towards the exit.”
Oh wah! Seriously? He’s the one acting like a spoiled child. All I wanted was a burger! My head hurts! You ruined my day! I’m going to spend $30 on stupid pie to prove a point. Give me a break. Here’s what the internet has to say about Mr. Pie Hero:
Really? I just think he’s a jerk. I’m not excusing the terrible behavior of a child, but this guy is a grown man. He’s at a Burger King, not the Four Seasons. I’m sorry that your wait in line wasn’t the picture of serenity you expected it to be, but contrary to popular belief, no one in public enjoys total peace and serenity. That’s not how the world works.
