The Petty Reason Someone Fired A Gun At This Wendy's Drive-Thru

Staff members and customers at a Wendy's in Euclid, Ohio were taken aback in the drive-thru line when a woman produced a gun after not being satisfied with her order. Euclid Police Captain Mitch Houser toldĀ Newsweek that he had never seen anything like this before, and called this action "disgusting."

Tia Taylor was the unhappy customer and the owner of the gun. Though she did not hit anyone, she is being tried for the crime of improperly handling a firearm. Taylor fired three shots total, and the third hit a sign, according to Newsweek.

This isn't the first time a customer has lost it at a drive-thru of a fast food restaurant. Earlier this year, a driver violently threw an object at the attendant working at an Atlanta-area McDonald's drive-thru, and another woman attempted to throw an iced tea dispenser at employees. It's a pretty big step to go from a disagreement with someone at the drive-thru window to firing a gun out of frustration, but even that has happened before this past April, when a drive-thru customer in Memphis started shooting at a Burger King due to a similar level of impatience (via ABC7).

Wendy's refused to serve her

Some drive-thrus actually have timers, but apparently not the one that Tia Taylor was going through that day.

As Newsweek reports, Taylor was seen and heard swearing to staff when she felt her order was taking too long. The manager then came over and asked her to leave, telling her that she would not be served before she left. This was when she started firing her gun. And yes, drive-thrus can refuse to serve you, unless if they are discriminating against a protected class, according to MyDoorSign.

Taylor appeared in court on December 6, and her bond was set for $25,000, according to Newsweek. One condition that she must abide by is staying away from Wendy's and not carrying any kind of firearm.

Though drive-thru's are meant to be a safe and convenient place to pick up orders on the go, incidents such as this one may deter both customers and fast food workers alike from spending too much time at one.
