After boasting that nobody would see it, a Del Taco manager in Arizona was sacked after video of his hostile encounter with two customers was posted online, KXNV-TV reported.
The profanity-laden rant apparently came about after the customers pulled up to the drive-thru because their order was missing items and a lack of sauce for their food. As the driver explains that the unidentified manager called him “a f*cking d*ck,” the manager can be seen in the background flipping him off.
A few seconds later, he comes to the window and says, “Hey bro, you want the whole story?” before telling the driver that he had “no information” about their order.
“You don’t have to act that way,” the woman filming the conversation replies.
“I don’t give a f*ck, bro,” the manager says before making fun of the customers, saying, “Where you gonna post it, YouTube? No one’s gonna f*cking see it.”
As KTVK-TV noted, it was actually posted to Vimeo, where the video amassed 90,000 views in three days and was named a “staff pick.”
When the woman tells the manager that they would send the video to his boss, he replies, “I am the boss. My dad’s actually the f*cking owner so good luck with that.” Seconds later, he complains about his clientele and about the two customers.
“You got your sauces and you guys are still being b*tches,” he says. “And I’m f*cking ticked off ’cause I still got orders.”
“Why don’t you quit?” the driver asks.
“Why would I quit?” the manager replies. “This is my f*cking fortune right here. You know what a pot of gold this is?”
The driver then points out that his order was missing items and that he returned to buy them.
“That’s cool,” the manager replies. “But why you gotta give me ‘tude about the f*cking sauce, though?”
The conversation ends not long after that exchange, though the manager can be heard calling the driver a “f*cking dumb*ss” as he drives away.
Del Taco quickly confirmed the manager’s termination in a statement.
“We strive to provide a positive guest experience at all of our restaurants and were appalled by this behavior as it is not representative of our high guest service standards,” the company said. “We took this incident very seriously and addressed it with the location’s franchisee, who took definitive action by terminating the employee immediately.”

Former FBI Director Comey outlines the burning questions he’d ask Robert Mueller
Former FBI Director James Comey has written a lengthy post at the Lawfare blog outlining the most important questions that Democrats need to ask of former special counsel Robert Mueller.
Although many of the questions outlined by Comey are simply asking Mueller to rehash the findings of his final report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, he does ask some questions designed to get Mueller to offer up his own analysis of President Donald Trump's actions, such as, "Did you find substantial evidence that the president had committed obstruction of justice crimes?" and "Did you reach a judgment as to whether the president had committed obstruction of justice crimes?"

Nightmarish ‘Cats’ trailer ignites a wave of mockery online — and has everyone wondering: Why?
My one-sentence response to the trailer for the upcoming film adaptation of “Cats” is simply: “Nobody asked for this — but now I have questions.”
Who knew that CGI fur — called “digital fur technology” by director Tom Hooper — had such a long way to go? Why are some of the cats wearing fur coats over said fur? Why is the term “Furries” trending on Twitter? And when you watch the trailer do you, too, think of medieval artists’ fumbling attempts to draw cats, which often resulted in a grotesque mashup of human faces and feline bodies?
