Hero or villain? Man buys 23 Burger King apple pies to spite screaming child
A man treating himself to a Burger King after a long day’s work ended up buying all 23 of the restaurant’s remaining apple pies – because a screaming child standing behind him wanted one.
In a post on reddit, the user explained that a child was screaming and demanding pie from his mother, who was on the phone and ignoring him completely.
‘This kid was out of control, screaming, punching his mother, throwing around a gameboy whenever something didn’t go right in the game,’ he posted on the sub-reddit offmychest, where users make confessions.
‘She gets up in my face telling me I can’t tell her nothing about raising her child and to mind my own business,’ he goes on, saying that he asked the mother kindly to settle her child down after he screamed: ‘I want some f***ing pie!’
‘I then decide to ruin their day,’ says the poster, who went and purchased every apple pie in the restaurant.
It sounds like a scene from a movie, and audiences would probably laugh and think the man had dealt with the woman and her child very creatively.
In real life however, is the man a hero or a villain?
The poster finishes his confession by saying that as he left the Burger King, he heard the woman shout: ‘What do you mean you don’t have any pies left, who bought them all?’
He continued: ‘I turn around and see the cashier pointing me out with the woman shooting me a death glare.’
