An Arizona man was fired from his fast-food job by his own father after the above video of the employee swearing at two drive-thru customers went viral. The expletive-laden altercation began when the customers apparently did not get the sauce that was originally ordered.
In the three-minute long footage, the employee can be seen flipping off the customers from inside the restaurant. When he comes to speak with the customers, he was obviously very annoyed.
“You don’t have to act that way,” the female passenger says, to which the employee replies: “I don’t give a f*ck.” When the customers suggest that they will use the video to get the rude employee fired, he dismisses their threat.
“Where are you gonna post it, YouTube? No one’s gonna f*cking see it. Who are you going to send it to?” he asks.
“To your boss, duh,” the passenger replies.
“I am the boss,” he fired back. “My dad’s actually the f*cking owner so good luck with that.”
The passenger says that the video could result in the entire restaurant being closed down, but the employee remains nonchalant. “Dude, I’ve done this a billion times,” he said. “You guys give me shit all the f*cking time. … I’m not talking about you specifically. I’m talking about you as a customer.”
Contrary to the employee’s prediction, the video went viral and was shared by dozens of Facebook users to Del Taco’s page. In response, the California-based franchisor released a statement distancing themselves from the employee’s actions.
“We strive to provide a positive guest experience at all of our restaurants and were appalled by this behavior as it is not representative of our high guest service standards. We took this incident very seriously and addressed it with the location’s franchisee, who took definitive action by terminating the employee immediately.”
