All of this for a spicy pickle…
By Christopher Murphy @MurphMMA
UFC women’s bantamweight fighter Miesha Tate took to social media to publically humiliate a gas station employee for poor customer service.
“Ok I have to vent (That’s what facebook is for right?) So I’m standing in line at the gas station to buy a spicy pickle and put the rest in the gas tank, when a fan of mine pops up and is like “oh my gosh Miesha how are you, great fight!!” I go on to thank him and its my turn at the register finally so I say clear as day to the lady, take to cost of the pickle out of the $60 and put the rest on pump 4 please” she looks at me annoyed brakes the money as th fan continues to ask if I will give him an autograph I smile politely and oblige. The lady goes on to help the next costume and I ask can I have my receipt please (which she should have given me in the first place but I didn’t have the chance to ask between her rush I and being cordial with my fan) so she frustratingly prints a receipt after letting me know how much check trouble that is for her. I say thanks and go to pump my gas where it is hailing outside and there’s no gas money on my pump… sooo I grab my receipt she gave me and its a receipt for cough drops… Im not amused so I walk back in through the hail again and flag her down to tell her this is the wrong receipt and she also did not put the gas money I gave her on pump #4. Should goes on to lecture me saying that I should wait to engage in conversation until after my transaction is complete. LOL!!! I said “where is your managers number I want to speak to him, you are very rude I am the customer I can do whatever I want and Im sorry that I am nice to my fans” Then she scoffed at me, gave me the run around for the phone number then finally gave me the store number where she is the only one working tonight, so I figured we could all give GALE a call an let her know how much we appreciate great customer service! ***-***-****”
Tate’s celebrity has given this post quite a bit of attention; in less than a day, over 2,000 people have liked the post, and it has been shared over 100 times (not to mention media coverage like).
What’s more is the post has worked, as a woman replied to the post saying, “Good morning fans Im sorry for the trouble at circle k I’m the cashier today answering all calls gale is not here so please stop calling. I’m off at one and would love a break away from answering calls. Thank u. So sorry for her rudeness…”
While Gale may have avoided the backlash, it seems that Tate and her fans have managed to harass at least one gas station attendant.Tags: miesha tate, miesha tate gas station, mma, MMA NEWS, ufc, ufc news
