You know how it is. You’re working your shift at the Wendys on the night shift, and you can’t wait to get home to your real passion of reading up on all the latest medical journals to help prepare you for your future career performing surgery on NASA rocket brains. Then, some smart mouth customer pulls up and has the audacity to complain about getting cold food. The nerve! Don’t they know you did them a favor in the first place?!
Huntingdon, Tenn.–A shift manager at a fast food restaurant in Huntingdon has been charged with aggravated assault following an altercation with a customer.
According to the police report, Demarrus Pritchett, age 23, is charged with pouring hot oil on the customer over the drive-through window Tuesday night. ” Is that hot enough for ya now dawg!?”
Seems like a reasonable thing to do to me.
Police said the customer purchased food from the Wendy’s drive-through and returned later to complain his food was cold. The nerve! Pritchett is accused of throwing the hot oil over the customer after a verbal altercation. Pritchett told police he had previously been harassed by the customer.
The customer was treated for extensive burns on his left side and arm at Baptist Memorial Hospital-Huntingdon.
I have seen first hand what burning cooking oil can do to the human body and it’s horrific. Demarrus needs to spend the rest of the next two decades in prison.
