Insulting Restaurant Staff On Twitter While You're Still In The Restaurant Might Get You Kicked Out Of Restaurant

Think of this as the counter-point to the earlier Twitter-related post. A diner at a Houston restaurant was given the boot after she decided to Tweet her opinion of the staff while she was still at the eatery.

According to the restaurant’s owner, a manager was checking out Twitter from home when he saw a Tweet from the customer calling the establishment’s bartender a “twerp.” The Houston Press reports that she also used the hashtag #jackoff in her since-deleted Tweet. The manager called the restaurant to speak to the diner and then told her to leave.

“Any business is allowed to set the tone of their establishment,” explains the restaurant’s owner to KPRC-TV. “If you go to someone’s house and start calling them names, I wouldn’t really expect to stay too much longer after that.”

The booted diner took to Twitter once more as she was leaving, saying she exited the restaurant “in tears after the GM called up and asked the bartender to hand me the phone. He proceeded to curse at me and ask me to leave.”

What do you think of the manager’s decision to kick out the Tweeter?
