Have you ever gone to a restaurant, and avoided complaining about mistakes made to your meal for fear of retaliation? We’ve all heard the stories of disgruntled food service employees tampering with customers’ orders and unfortunately, this couple experienced it firsthand!
In upstate New York, a couple went to a Chili’s location to eat. Their experience was less than stellar, as their food was under-cooked, and they didn’t receive their full order. They spoke with the waiter to let him know, and they asked for to-go drinks as they left. When they got to the car, they noticed something unpleasant in one of the drinks. Upon further inspection, it looked like spit, and a lot of it.
The couple returned to the restaurant and asked to speak with the waiter in question, but they were denied. The manager offered them coupons and a refund, while seemingly brushing off the ordeal. So the couple called the police, and sent in the drink for testing at a DNA lab. Officers were able to obtain the waiter’s DNA with a warrant, and the DNA samples were compared.
Unsurprisingly, the waiter’s DNA was a match, and he pleaded guilty in court. He was charged with disorderly conduct, and was fined $125. The couple went on to sue the restaurant as well as the waiter for negligence.
