QUINCY, Mass. — A Massachusetts woman is facing an assault charge for allegedly punching a restaurant worker for putting too many pickles on her steak and cheese sandwich, police said Monday.

Tina Drouin, 49, ordered the sub from Nathan’s Famous Hot Dogs in the Quincy Center subway/commuter rail station at about 2 p.m. Saturday, according to MBTA police. Drouin started loudly complaining, used a profanity, and made other derogatory comments about the ratio of certain ingredients as the worker prepared the sandwich, police said.

Finally, she demanded a refund. The worker refused.

That’s when Drouin allegedly punched the female worker in the face, and pushed over two large pickle jars, knocking the worker to the floor and shattering the jars, police said.

If she ever goes to that particular restaurant again, she will be drinking piss as well. Don’t mess with the people who make your food.

You have been living a sheltered life. And to answer your question, Dagwood Bumstead and myself.

I’d have seen just how much she ate of it before I did that. If it was more than one or two bites, no.

In my world, pickles are like cats and catsup.....absolutely no reason to even exist.

but do you resort to fisticuffs???

I happen to like ketchup, but catsup?

a good pickle on occasion is welcome.

and cats are not my cup of tea. but for some reason I have had one now for 3+ years, and I have an understanding with this one...Generally though I am NOT a cat person....and neither are my dogs(who also have worked out the same understanding)

I’m not even going to surf for it.
I’m 99.9% likely to be right about what the victim and the perp look like.

Since there was no mention of race, it probably was a factor.

She should have gone to BK: “Hold the pickles, hold the lettuce, special orders don’t upset us...”

It would have been less costly had she just given her the refund this time.... the entire commotion may have resulted in loss business that day, and loss future business... not to mention the mess, the jars of pickles, etc...

Nope, that ‘customer’ is going to jail. She’s been summonsed to appear for assault charge and doesn’t have a leg to stand on - she won’t be able to bully a judge.

If she’s lucky the judge will only make her pay damages.

And look at that hassle... going to court... costly... in time and effort... giving her her 5 bucks back would have been wiser...
