People really take their manners seriously in South Carolina, at least when it comes to eating in a fine restaurant like Taco Bell. Police are searching for a man that assaulted a fellow customer with a chair at a Tega Cay Taco Bell. The reason for the attack? The victim burped and didn’t say excuse me. From The Huffington Post:
Tega Cay, S.C., police say a 20-year-old Fort Mill man sat down with a friend at a local Taco Bell restaurant on Sunday when a man in another booth asked him if he had belched without saying “excuse me.”
A police report says the man then walked over to the victim, picked up a chair and hit the victim on the left elbow. The victim also told police the man grabbed his throat and tried to head butt him before a restaurant worker told the assailant to leave.
Clearly this guy wasn’t in his right mind for a few reasons. Firstly, he’s eating at Taco Bell in the daytime and without the aid of alcohol. That’s a foul if I ever saw one.
Second, he’s blowing a gasket over a burp like he’s Michael Douglas from Falling Down. This is a post-9/11 world and this kind of jumpy attitude just doesn’t fly for people with a lick of sense. If he ends up tearing up some Korean grocer, I’m calling it.
I can only hope the guy who got choked burped like Booger from Revenge of the Nerds. At least earn your beating a bit with an epic burp.
