While the recent McDonald’s employee meltdown had a certain nihilistic joy to it, with the fired worker made a calamitous exit but in a way that didn’t really put anyone at risk, this footage from a Little Caesars here in Philadelphia is downright terrifying as an angry customer attempts to attack an employee with everything he can get his hands on.

Not satisfied with merely finding the best and worst beef-on-a-bun, CR decided to go for the super-sized option, rating 53 restaurants in five categories to find which ones provide the best food, service and value to customers.
Kyle was annoyed that when he had to change his US Airways tickets, he not only was charged a ticket change fee, he also didn’t get any refund, even though the new tickets were cheaper than his old ones.
