A man who stopped by a Burger King for lunch claims he bought every pie they had – 23 in all – to spite a child throwing a temper tantrum and the mother who wouldn’t control him.
The man posted his story on Reddit and while it appears to have gone viral, the original post has since been removed.
The man wrote that he was not having a good day. He stopped by Burger King to pick up lunch when a mother walked in with her child, who was noisy and crying. The child repeatedly said, “I want a f—ing pie!” according to My Fox 9.
He explained that he had a headache when he went in and because of the noise it became worse. The line was long and slow because they were training a new employee.
He asked the mother if she could quiet the child, but was told to “stop trying to raise her child,” then went back to her cell phone, according to his Reddit post.
So he took matters into his own hands.
The man wrote this on Reddit, according to My Fox 9:
“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 it 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.”
While the original post under the heading, “Am I a bad person?” is gone, another Reddit user reposted it, and most of the comments that remain are supportive of the man’s actions.
Here are a few:
“No, this is hilarious. She needs to learn to discipline her child instead of rewarding his bad behavior with sweets.”
“You’re not a bad person, you’re my hero. The little victories…”
“I love me a nice slice of spite pie.”
The man shared the pies with his coworkers, according to My Fox 9.
