If you've ever worked in customer service — whether it's fast food, retail, a call center, etc. — then you know that putting up with rude customers is endlessly frustrating. But dealing with straight-up nonsensical people who make you throw up your hands in defeat while declaring, "WTF?!" is the absolute worst. A Burger King worker experienced such a situation recently while on the job, and she decided to vent on TikTok about a woman who berated her for her uniform, of all things.
A customer told a Burger King worker that her uniform was "distracting" her husband.
On May 27, 2021, TikTok user @rockefeller.o posted a video of herself wearing her Burger King uniform — and in less than one week, it had attracted more than 14.8 million views and over 3.7 million likes.
"I had a lady complain today because my uniform was a 'distraction' to her husband ... " a caption in the TikTik video read as she turned around to show viewers her run-of-the-mill fast food attire. "I guess I'll leave my ass at home next time."
As you can clearly see, @rockefeller.o is fully covered in her Burger King uniform with no cleavage or skin showing in "inappropriate" areas, or anything at all that might be considered "immodest." Because it's a fast food outfit that literally all of the workers wear.
Ultimately, the TikTok user came to the conclusion that the woman who felt the need to comment about her uniform distracting her husband was actually talking about her curvy backside.
It wasn't the Burger King employee's uniform at all with which the customer had a problem — it was the fact that her husband was looking at the fast food worker's shapely butt. Which definitely seems like a him/them problem and not a fast food uniform/young woman's problem.
One TikTok commenter rightfully pointed out, "She should be mad at her husband, not you."
Another person wrote, “Distract him from what?? Ordering from Burger King??”
The Burger King worker/TikTok video creator clarified, “Apparently she was trying to tell him something and he wasn’t paying any attention so she got upset.”
Yet another TikTok user suggested, “Maybe her husband should stay at home.”
“For real!!! Our bodies are not a distraction,” another person commented.
In a follow-up video, @rockefeller.o poked fun at the situation again with another video. "Don't forget to leave your ass at home today!" a caption read as she stood there with a purse on her shoulder.
She then lip-synced to sound bite that said, "Oh yeah, I got it in my purse for you right now. I brought it just for you 'cuz I knew you was gonna ask me for it."
@rockefeller.o also took a moment to call out a racist commenter who commented on her original viral video, "Typical [N-word] always trying to get attention and always being a home wrecker." And her response was priceless.
It's nice to see that this TikTok user has a sense of humor about a jealous customer making it her problem that her husband was staring at a fast food worker's butt instead of paying attention to what his wife was saying. Because hey, even if you can't put ignorant people in their place while on the clock, then at least you can call them out for their bulls--t in front of millions of strangers via social media.
