Apparently, after waiting in line in front of a careless mother and her screaming small child, a man who was having a bad day (and had a headache) decided to ruin that family's day: The child was screaming "I want f**king pie!" so the man bought up every last pie — all 23 of them — and walked out of the Burger King location, turning only to see the enraged mother and child, helpless as the cashier told them that the restaurant had just sold out of pie.
In my days at The Big Fancy, I used to watch women buy the last designer bag to spite each other and then they would return it a week later.
Here's the original post, since the custy deleted it (I guess because he got tired of his inbox filling up with people accusing him of lying).
So a while ago I had decided to treat myself and go to Burger King. I hadn't had the greatest of days and I had a headache coming on. It was a very long line and I was at the end of it waiting patiently. When behind me comes this woman yapping on her cellphone with a little monster of a child. This kid was out of control, screaming, punching his mother throwing around a gameboy whenever something didn't go right in the game. The mother didn't seem to pay any attention to him and his continued yelling of 'I want a Fucking PIE'. After about 5 minutes of the line with these people behind me, I had gone from a headache to a full on migraine, but nothing was going to stop me from getting those burgers. I calmly turn and ask her nicely if she can please calm or quiet her child down. Immediately she gets up in my face telling me I can't tell her nothing about raising her child and to mind my own business. I nod and turn around, shes still yelling at the back of my head when the child cries out again how he wants a pie, the mother consoles him, calling him sweety and ensuring they'll get pies for lunch because she loves him so much. Things immediately go back to the they were and I wait another 5 minutes before getting to the front of the line. It turns out it was so slow because they had 1 trainee on cash during the lunch hour rush. All I can think of is how the people behind me ruined my splurge and gave me this headache. I then decide to ruin their day. 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 eat 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.
What do you think about this RHU? Some say it was deleted because there are holes in the story and his response comments were questionable....Could this be a troll story? We know ALL about those on RHU!
Some Redditors immediately questioned the veracity of the man's story and asked for some sort of documentation that the purchase, allegedly made two years ago at a Montreal food court, took place.
"I have no receipt or proof of purchase for to help validate this event," the man wrote in response. "At the time my apartment was ridden with both roaches and bedbugs, I threw away nearly every possession I own and then went through great expense while moving to ensure my problems did not come with me, thankfully it worked. Since that time I have moved across the country twice."
Others pointed out the similarities between this story and an episode of 30 Rock in which Tina Fey's character buys all the hot dogs at a hot dog stand to spite a rude line-cutter.
"I have never seen an episode of 30 rock before, I did not know the show existed or that Liz Lemon enacted a scene very similar to this during that episode," the man said in response to the comparisons. "Since that time I have viewed your links and now see the remarkable similarities."
As for why he decided to write about the experience now, instead of when it supposedly happened in 2012, the poster said, "I only wrote about this a few days ago was because I had gone to BK where I am currently living and saw a child enjoying a pie there, this reminded me of what I had done and I wanted to know if it was the right choice,” he wrote. “Unable to answer it myself I turned to the vast collective mind that is Reddit to help me solve my dilemma.”
The man has since not only deleted his post, which was updated with the original description by another Redditor, but he has deleted his account entirely, Reddit spokesperson Victoria Taylor told The Huffington Post.
For its part, Burger King told HuffPost, "We have nothing to add to the story at this time."
Redditors continue to weigh in on the post.
"No way that the incident happened like that, and I doubt that it happened at all," one user wrote. "If this woman was real, she would have been on his case while he was still at the counter, waiting while the BK employees stuffed his pies into big bags. She would've noticed that he was taking all the pies before those bags were even halfway full."
But another person, who claimed to be a Burger King employee, wrote "we put the food into bags turned away from the customer. There's been plenty of times when we sold out of something (not due to someone enacting revenge, but 'normal' selling out before delivery), and I'll tell a customer, sorry, we're sold out, and the next person in line asks for the same thing."
What do you think? Is the story legit or a molten hot pie with lie filling?
