Hint: if you enter a fast food place and notice that everyone behind the counter is as black as an eggplant, leave at once.
You will have to wait an hour for your food, and you will get beaten up if you complain about it.
Six Pennsylvania Taco Bell employees have been fired after cellphone footage was uploaded online showing them beating a customer outside a store.
Footage of the incident was shared on Twitter yesterday by victim Bryan Reese. The beating, filmed by a friend of the victim, allegedly took place on February 24 at roughly 10:45 p.m. outside a Center City restaurant. Police are now investigating, local media reported.
Reese told CBS Philadelphia he waited to release the video because of a lack of action from the fast food chain. The man’s girlfriend was also beaten by uniformed staff in the attack.
The victim told Philadelphia’s WPVI-TV his friends had ordered food at the store but were forced to wait nearly an hour. Other customers were also getting agitated with waiting times, which he said employees blamed on a barrage of orders from delivery website GrubHub.
According to Reese, three Taco Bell employees snapped due to the mounting complaints, jumping over the counter and launching into an assault. More then followed.
“I backed out of the store. They continued to follow me. They put me on the ground, and I don’t really remember too much else. Except for when I got up my girlfriend was on the ground being beat, too. She wasn’t even in the store at the time,” he said, WPVI-TV reported.
