Do Not Retaliate For Bad Customer Service With Bomb Threats

Protip: The best way to deal with poor customer service from a mall is not to turn around and call in a bomb threat. From your office phone. Without blocking caller ID. Yes, a man in a Salt Lake City suburb allegedly did that.

Dispatchers traced the call back to Mountain West Material in Murray. Detectives found the man still sitting at his desk, and the Gateway numbers he allegedly had just called were still on his phone screen, [Detective Pat] Wilkinson said.

The man was arrested for making terrorist threats.
