Waffle House Customer Complains, Gets Shot

Mildly amusing article from my local paper today:

MANNING, S.C. — A Waffle House employee has been arrested and accused of shooting a customer who complained about the service.

The Clarendon County Sheriff’s Office says 29-year-old Yakeisha Ward of Manning is charged with assault and battery with intent to kill.

Deputies said Ward worked at a Waffle House restaurant in Manning and was involved in a fight about 4:30 a.m. Sunday. Lt. Tommy Burgess says the fight started when the customer complained about the quality of service in the crowded restaurant.

Burgess says Ward went to her van to get a gun. He says a 27-year-old woman was hit in the arm.

But what really made this worth posting was that hidden among a lot of unwitty comments by readers was this gem by Bluewater: “I guess all the other patrons immediately scattered, smothered & covered.”
