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.
