NYDN - Cold onion rings led to an attack involving a switchblade and Taser at a New Mexico Burger King, alleges a customer. Robert DeYapp filed a lawsuit against the fast-food franchise last week after he said the manager Francisco Berrera tried to attack him after he asked for his onion rings to be heated up, reports Courthouse News Service. The incident occurred at the restaurant in Bloomfield, N.M., on June 7, 2013, the lawsuit states. Berrera took the onion rings back and told a co-worker in Spanish: “This white boy is mad about his food, and he doesn’t even know that I’m going to return it and do whatever I want to it, and he’ll still eat it and never have any idea of what I did to his food,” the lawsuit states. But DeYapp understood what the manager said and asked for a refund, which Berrera refused, the lawsuit states. The customer then claims Berrera took pictures of him and his vehicle as he finished his meal. When DeYapp asked Berrera what he was doing, the manager “came around the counter and began lunging at Mr. DeYapp with a Taser in one hand and a switchblade knife in the other hand,” the lawsuit states. Police arrested Berrera, who pleaded guilty to felony assault with a deadly weapon, the lawsuit states, but it does not specify when. DeYapp, was not injured, but seeks punitive damages for assault, and negligent hiring and training. A call placed to DeYapp’s attorney was not returned. A Burger King spokesman said the company does not comment on active litigation.


Few things going on here that don’t make very much sense, so let’s break it down the old fashioned way:

1) Ordering onion rings at a fast food restaurant is already deviant behavior. I get it, sometimes a playa just wants some onion rings. So when you order the onion rings, you kinda just have to expect mediocrity. It’s like how Chickfila has chicken salad sandwiches on the menu. They don’t really expect people to order it. So when you get one, don’t be surprised if it sucks. You don’t get to Chickfila for anything besides a delicious chicken sandwich, it’s syllabus week stuff.

2) Ok, so he got onion rings. Fine. No big deal. Asking them to be reheated? I don’t throw this phrase around lightly, but that’s an absolute psychopath move. I won’t send my food back at respectable restaurants, never mind a Burger King in New Mexico. Of course they were cold, they’ve been sitting around all day. Jesus Christ dude, think things through for me one time. I have never heard of people sending food back to be reheated, ever. The more I think about it, the more preposterous it is. This guy was really expecting some world class meal. And reheated onion rings? Good luck with that. Talk about soggy. At least ask for a brand new batch.


3) The manager had every right to stab and tase this fool. You can’t trust someone who orders onion rings, asks them to be reheated, and then starts taking pictures of him. Don’t bring a knife to a gun fight..bring a knife and 50,000 volts of electricity. The manager was in fight or flight mode. A lunatic was prancing around his Burger King, what other choice did he have besides take matters into his own hands? He has a business to protect. Well done, manager. Well done.
