    i love this guy :cheer:
    We’ve all had to stand in line next to some insufferable brat of a child who won’t stop shouting out his desires for the entire world to hear. But most of us don’t have the gall to do what one Burger King customer claims to have done.
    In a post on Reddit (cue the disclaimer that his entire story may be B.S., but it’s worth discussing anyway), a man claims that he was just trying to end his bad day on a good note by treating himself to some BK.

    “When behind me comes this woman yapping on her cellphone with a little monster of a child,” he writes. “This kid was out of control, screaming, punching his mother throwing around a gameboy whenever something didn’t go right in the game.”

    He says the mom paid more attention to her phone than to her kid, who was screaming about how much he wanted an apple pie.

    The customer says his already bad headache got worse and so he asked the mother nicely to quiet her kid 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,” recalls the customer, who says the mom rubbed it in by calling her kid “sweety” and assuring him that he’d get his pie.

    By the time the customer got to the front of the line, he says he could only think about how the loudmouthed brat and his mom had spoiled this little trip to BK.

    “I then decide to ruin their day,” explains the customer who ordered all 23 pies the store had in stock.

    “I take my order and walk towards the exit,” he recounts. “Moments later I hear the woman yelling, ‘What do you mean you don’t have any pies left, who bought them all?’ I turn around and see the cashier pointing me out with the woman shooting me a death glare.”

    It’s one of those scenes that, were it in a movie (and it may be from a movie for all we know), you’d probably laugh and think the guy was an evil genius. But does the same hold true in real life?

    here's a blurb that he posted on another site that's so very lulz...

    Moments later I hear the woman yelling, what do you mean you don’t have any pies left, who bought them all? I turn around and see the cashier pointing me out with the woman shooting me a death glare. I stand there and pull out a pie and slowly start eating eat as I stare back at her. She starts running towards me but can’t get to me because of other lineups in the food court. I turn and slowly walk away. :hilarious:

    Not really a very nice thing to do. Do you really expect a kid to behave 100% of the time in public? If you do, you've never had children of your own. Doesn't sound like the mom was being a good mother either. It did more harm to the guy's bank account than it did to her.

    Plus, I'd be really surprised if that was true. Fast Food places buy those things by the case. They probably had more in the freezer. He probably bought all they had defrosted.

    not nice is allowing your kid to scream and throw a temper tantrum IN A PUBLIC PLACE while you obliviously chat on the phone.
    most likely this pig didn't learn her lesson but the guy had a good time attempting to teach her.
    sure they had more pies in the freezer, but it takes time to cook them and she ain't got time fo dat.
