Local Wendy’s Customers Defend Server Against Bully
Two Rowan students stood up for a Wendy’s server, and got a tasty award in return…
Meet 19 year old Kailee Whiting, and 18 year old Katie Light. They happen to be standing in line at a Wendy’s, when a customer in front of them started to outright bully the cashier.
Apparently, the fast food restaurant had a 20 minute power outage, resulting in a backup in the kitchen. You can probably imagine the stress behind the counter.
According to Katie Light’s story on Reddit, the customer began to yell at the cashier, saying ‘If you weren’t ready to take my order, you shouldn’t have called me up!’
According to Yahoo, Kailee ‘explained to the displeased woman that working in the food industry is difficult and that the cashier was doing her best. Her words, however, weren’t so well received. The woman shoved her hand in Whiting’s face and told her to “shut up and stop talking.‘
When the disgruntled customer finally left, the cashier gave Kailee and Katie a free 16 count chicken nuggets meal and two frosties, with a message that read ‘you guys are awesome, I hope you like vanilla.‘
Meanwhile, our bully found out about the free treat the girls received, and complained to the manager.
The manager didn’t mind.
Many of you have probably witnessed bullying in some way or another. We recently talked about the disgruntled Apple store customer that is now a Youtube sensation. While we laughed at the video, we ignored the bullying.
We’re not ignoring the lesson learned in this situation.
This story proves that sometimes it’s OK to speak up, free nuggets or not.
