It’s not every day that one of these messed up order food feud stories goes from fight between customer and cashier to all out drunken brawl, but that’s what happened in Toronto over the weekend. So much for Canadians being nice all the time, I guess.
Paul Michael, 23, was at the restaurant when the brawl began at around 2 a.m. He said it started when a woman entered the restaurant on Queen St. E., at Broadview Ave., and complained that her pizza order was late.
“They didn’t call her to tell her it was ready so in the middle of the Pizza Pizza, she started screaming how she wasn’t satisfied,” Michael said.
“She was making this big scene and then someone else said something and one person just started grabbing another. The big thing just started happening when she jumped over the counter and started throwing the chips on the floor. So everything just started going crazy.”
That’s when Michael started recording. The video has been watched almost 10,000 times on YouTube as of early Tuesday afternoon.
“Everyone started pushing each other,” he said. “I don’t know how those other people really got involved. I just sat there and filmed the whole event.”
Sorting out charges is a little confusing, as depending on which source you go by (including different lines in the same article) either nobody was charged with anything or one person was dinged for public intoxication. But for now, that’s really not important. What we really want to know is what became of the pizza at the centre of all this.
“She did get the pizza,” Michael told the Toronto Star. “She was yelling about it as she got it. She ended up throwing it on the floor.”
Good thing she went to all that trouble.
