Woman Attacked For Keeping Taco Bell Customer From Getting Breakfast

If you show up at a Taco Bell with only a few minutes to go before the deadline for placing breakfast orders, don’t get mad if a delay in front of you prevents you from getting the food you crave. And, more importantly, don’t pursue and then assault the customer you blame for preventing you from ordering breakfast.

KGUN-TV in Tucson reports that a local woman recently went through the Taco Bell drive-thru. All seemed fine, though it did take about 10 minutes for her order to come out.

Problem is, during those 10 minutes the Bell had switched from making breakfast to the lunch menu. This is not what a customer behind this woman wanted to hear, but rather than blame himself or just suck it up and order lunch like a grown-up, he apparently set out in pursuit of the customer who had done nothing but order food slightly earlier than he did.

The woman tells KGUN that shortly after she pulled out of the Bell, she noticed the SUV that was behind her in line was now following her, honking the horn with the people inside yelling “‘You f-ing b****” at her as they pulled up next to her.

She says she pulled off to a side street and called 9-1-1, but the SUV followed. That’s when the man picked up a rock and smashed her car window.

“He then used that rock and hit me on the left side of my head by my ear and punched me in my mouth and nose,” the woman, who received a broken nose and teeth as a result, tells KGUN.

“The only thing that keeps running through my mind is that this person is just an absolute monster because no sane person in their right mind would do that to anybody,” she explains.

The assault came only weeks before the woman’s wedding. In spite of her injuries, and her concerns that her attackers are still on the loose, she says she’s still moving ahead with the nuptials as planned.

    In fairness, 10 minutes is more than enough time and Taco Bell’s drive thru times have been horrible in my area, Nashville, often 15-25 minutes, so in that sense I put part of that on Taco Bell. I have spoken to the area management and they stated it’s a staffing issue. The worst part is you can get aggravated in the drive thru as many of them are ‘closed drive throughs meaning unlike most McD’s , there is no way to LEAVE so you go in thinking it’ll be 5 minutes and 25 minutes later you’re finally at the drive thru window. If there is an emergancy like a stroke, elpileptic seizure or other reason to leave, you literally can’t get out if there is someone behind you and an ambulance can’t pull in. Bad TACO BELL planning but in fairness again there are other restaurants like that. But its only a matter of time before Taco Bell’s slowness causes more road rage. or Taco Rage.

      Riiiiight. It’s Taco Bell’s fault that some psycho followed a woman, smashed her window with a rock, and then pounced the crap out of her face.

      Next up you’re going to tell me that the people who go into road rage because someone didn’t accelerate from a traffic light fast enough should blame the traffic light. After all, if it wasn’t so long, people wouldn’t go get upset, right?

      Psycho people are psycho people. If you cannot handle waiting an extra 10 minutes for your food, seek professional help.
