Bullying may conjure up images of school kids ganging up on each other on the playground, but adults are guilty of partaking in the nasty practice too ? on the Web, in the workplace, and even at restaurants.  Luckily, some bystanders aren't looking the other way anymore.

When two New Jersey teens overheard a cashier getting an unfair earful from a customer, they spoke up. And it not only felt good, but tasted good, too.

On Sunday, Kailee Whiting, 19, shared her story on Reddit, writing: "Stood up for an innocent employee at Wendy's who was being bullied by a customer. She gave us free frosties and chicken nuggets." Whiting also posted a photo of the two shakes sitting atop a piece of paper that read, "You guys are AWESOME. (Hope you like vanilla.)"

"I thought it was really sweet of the cashier,? Whiting's girlfriend, 18-year-old Katie Light, told Yahoo! Shine. ?It was nice to know that she was happy that we stood up for her. Karma gave us something back."

The two Rowan University students were standing in line waiting for their food at a Wendy?s restaurant in Franklin, New Jersey, when a woman in front of them started yelling at the cashier. There had been a power outage 20 minutes earlier, causing a backup in the kitchen, so things had become a bit hectic behind the counter. According to Light, the customer yelled, "If you weren?t ready to take my order, you shouldn?t have called me up!"

"We were very shocked that an older woman would even be so immature," Light explained.

Whiting, who works in retail and at a diner in Sussex County, New Jersey, could empathize with the cashier; she 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," according to Light.

"When we got our food, the cashier smiled and said, 'Here?s your chicken nuggets.' She gave us a free 16-piece chicken nuggets even though we didn?t order any. And when we were done, she came out with a tray of two Frosties just as a nice gesture ? like, 'Thank you for standing up for me.'"

The couple later found out that the frustrated woman called to inform the manager that the cashier gave away two free Frosties, but the manager reportedly didn't mind.  :happy:

Geeze, what a bitch. I am glad the Manager is fine with it too. They really should have taken pictures of the woman so everyone on the internet can know how mean she is.

Goes to show that being older doesn't make you more mature in some cases.

It really is disgraceful how some people treat those that work in the food industry or even just retail. Good on these girls for sticking up for another human being

Was it just me that hoped the article ended with "The older woman received an elbow to the nose later that day".

No? Haha i jest, i jest, but it's good to see people standing up against the ###### of society.

Age doesn't really cure being an ass ;-)

Ah yes, the redefinition of the word bullying so we can use it to limit freedom of speech by labeling everyone a bully.

 

Anyways to the point. I think she's more of a jerk and an a***ole if she was doing all of that. That kind of behavior generally makes you end up with someone's pubic hairs in your burger or someone rubbing your patty in their crack. Sure a lot of you get the picture by now, but luckily someone exercised their freedom to tell her to f*** off! Oh yeah!

As rude and immature as people are today, no way would I work in a service industry. I salute those who have the patience to do so.

As if their jobs don't suck enough without having to put up with stuff.

In my experiences in retail, from sales consultant, right up to business manager, the old people were among the worst every time. They were only beaten in rudeness by those with an inflated sense of self importance from either being spoiled as children, or just being asshats in general

^From what I've observed, the new crop of teens are much worse.

 

No respect, and total selfishness.

Used to work for Verizon Wireless, abuse is a daily thing that you're told to deal with. Granted being warned about it and being "prepared" for it doesn't quite help at all. Glad someone stood up for her.

^ I'm amused at how many customers think they are 'entitled' to be in a restaurant, no matter how bad their behavior is. :laugh:

I was in a Culver's when some old bitty started yelling up a storm because they didn't give her "enough" tartar sauce for her fish. Man...what a tantrum, screaming, banging stuff - 2 year old stuff..

The problem is there was a cop in the store eating his lunch. After she persisted the cop arrested her for disturbing the peace, put on the cuffs, put her in the cruiser, then came back in to finish his lunch. The customers & staff LOL'ed :D

Sadly these tales from people working in any industry dealing with the public, are all too common. Just check out www.notalwaysright.com and cringe at how awful the majority of the public are. I've had first hand experience with people threatening to beat me, and all sorts, all due to my work for a telco
