Today, while working the drive-through, a woman ordered a large coffee with four creams. I handed her the coffee, and she took a sip. She then hurled it at me, screaming, "I said four creams, not five!" and sped off, leaving me drenched in hot coffee. FML

I work in a restaurant and I'll agree with you there you see the true face of people in customer service work.... Generally either very kind or the embodiment of evil


Yeah.. There's a reason why I left McDonald's and never looked back lol fast good is definitely rough (all customer service is if you do it properly) and it takes a certain type of person to do it. I lost my mind, I couldn't do it anymore. So OP just know, it is a rough job, and hopefully you keep it together unlike me. Good luck with your job and I hope that's the worse you get and the rest of your customers are awesome!

If you ever worked in fast food/ customer service, you would know that closing the window on someone is considered rude. I can't even count the number of times that I wanted to close the window when people were being rude or annoying.

Assault is just the threat. If she never said she was gonna attack her you really can't push assault. It is a common mistake to use them as one charge. It is actually two distinct and different charges.

3- It actually could be a bit worse than that. A girl I used to work with threw her soda back at the lady working the drive thru at Wendy's and she got arrested and charged with shooting/throwing missiles at/into an occupied structure. That's sounds so much worse than it is!

No #48, assault and battery are not the same thing. Assault is the intent to cause the apprehension of contact. Battery is actually causing that contact. If the OP saw the customer throwing the coffee then that would constitute an assault. If the coffee actually hit the OP then threat is a battery. Two different acts resulting in two different charges. As a cop, I would've hoped you should know the law.r

As an FML commenter you should know he's not really a cop. And battery is.... damn battery is draining again. Gotta charge my phone 'again'.

ffs assualting someone IS the act of attacking, hitting, kicking, throwing stuff at etc. battery is the same thing. there is such a thint as verbal assault but an assault is a physical act.

Not entirely true. Assuming you are all talking about the Liebeck v. McDonald's Restaurants case, she accidently spilled her cup. This never ever happened to you? If the coffee had been at a normal temp, it would have been far less of a problem than it was now. She also only wanted her medical bills to be taken care of (in the amount of around 20k dollars), nothing else. McD only offered 800 bucks. It wasn't until later when more lawyers became involved when the outrageous amounts of money were involved...

dracodraco100 is right actually, media just makes it sound ridiculous...

Such an amazing sense of taste and smell, and yet she orders from a fast-food restaurant. Wow.

Mmm, I'd put my money on Tim Horton's any day. We have that in Michigan as well.
