Woman Attacked by Angry Taco Bell Customer who Blames Her for Missing Breakfast Cutoff


Every fast-food employee knows that the last 20 minutes before the breakfast menu ends are the most chaotic. Customers will storm the the restaurant and drive-thrus demanding they get their morning fix, regardless of the breakfast timer running out. One instance ended in the horrific attack of a Taco Bell customer.

According to KGUN-TV, a woman was ordering her breakfast at the Taco Bell drive-thru when she was assaulted by an angry Taco Bell customer. Detectives believe that the cause of the attack was the vehicle behind had just missed the cutoff for the breakfast menu and decided to take their rage and frustration out on the woman in front of him. This was obviously the best course of action rather than blame themselves for the hours they’ve had beforehand to order breakfast.

The woman reportedly pulled out of the Taco Bell when she noticed that the SUV that was behind her in line was now following her. Upon pulling over to call the police, she could hear the passengers of the vehicle (a man and woman) yelling expletives towards her.

A man then exited the car and proceeded to smash her car windows. Afterwards the man picked up a rock and struck the woman repeatedly in the face. The woman received a broken nose and teeth as a result of the attack, which unfortunately occurred only a few weeks before her wedding.

Despite this vicious assault, she says she will continue to go through with her big day.

Pizza Delivery Guy Attacked – Next Time Remember Those Garlic Knots!

When delivering pizza, one of the most important things they tell you is to make sure you have everything you need before you sit your butt in the car. That being said, is it really worth punching a guy in the face for forgetting to bring you garlic knots? Apparently: Yes.

Robert Wheeler, 48, allegedly punched his Vero Beach, Fla. pizza deliveryman in the face for not showing up with his complete order. What did he forget? Garlic Knots. The 348-pound tank of a man told the deliveryman “give that to the person working on the phone back at the restaurant” according to TCPalm.

While Wheeler admits to striking the deliveryman, he claims it was due to the restaurant owing him money, not because of the garlic knots. Either way, both reasons probably won’t look too great in front of a judge. Wheeler was arrested with a misdemeanor battery charge and is currently out on $500 bail. He will appear in court on Sept. 18.

Now, I’ve forgotten my fair share of food back in my delivery days…thankfully I’ve never gotten more than an stern talking to.

Man Charged with Assaulting Step Daughter with Fries to the Face

Apparently anything can be considered a deadly weapon these days, including a batch of McDonald’s French Fries. A man in Massachusetts was recently arrested and charged with assault for throwing a batch of fries in his stepdaughter’s face when she tried to stop an argument between him and her mother.

The report from the Lowell Police Department stated that James Hackett, 26, was arguing with his wife over money as they, along with his 11-year-old stepdaughter, were in the drive thru of a McDonald’s receiving their order. As the young girl tried to mediate the argument between her parents, the stepfather allegedly chucked a batch of fries from their order at the child’s face and chest area. While the girl did not sustain injuries, the fries had been freshly made and the salt and oil could have caused her burns (insert eye rolling emoticon).

Hackett was later arrested and appeared in court with a plea of “not guilty.” He has been ordered to keep his distance from his stepdaughter until his next court appearance on August 10th. Maybe by then this guy will have seen someone about his anger problems.

As for the for the little girl, hopefully she spends the next few years of her life with as little fries thrown at her as possible. Because I can almost guarantee that untainted fry face won’t last for long — high school can be a cruel, cruel place.
