Man Teaches Mom And Screaming Brat A Lesson
Good for him
(NY Daily News) A Burger King customer bought all 23 remaining apple pies in a restaurant to spite the mother and screaming child behind him in the line.
The man posted on reddit that the young boy was screaming and demanding pie, while the mother was on the phone and ignored her kid’s requests.
“The kid was out of control, screaming, punching his mother, throwing around a Game Boy whenever something didn’t go right in the game,” he posted on the website.
“She gets up in my face telling me I can’t tell her nothing about raising her child and to mind my own business,” he said after he told her to settle her child.
“I want some f***ing pie,” the boy finally screamed.
The man then spent $35 to purchase all the apple pies at the location. His post on Reddit is entitled “Am I a bad person?” Here’s his full post
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’. 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. Things immediately go back to the they were and I wait another 5 minutes before getting to the front of the line. It turns out it was so slow because they had 1 trainee on cash during the lunch hour rush. 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. 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.
Most of those responding at Reddit feel that he is not a bad person, and that he did good. Many also feel that the mom will not learn a lesson.The posters also tend to blame the mother for the child’s behavior. Hey, kids are kids.
I used to be one of those people who made fun of those who disciplined their children in public when I was younger. Now, I give silent kudos. You know how wireless stores used to have brochures out the ying yang? One of the major reasons they were mostly removed had to do with parents allowing their kids to run wild. I remember one time watching a child yank them out and throw them around, at which point I pointed this out to the parent. She told me “he’s just playing”. Yeah, well, she didn’t have to clean the mess up, and throw lots of damaged ones away. I’ve seen kids do the same with the accessories. Rarely have any parents, male or female, done anything to stop that.
