Greggs Customer Says He Got Revenge On 'Bratty Millennials' By Buying All The Pasties
A man claims he bought a whole tray of cheese and onion pasties from Greggs to deprive a family who had given him 'serious attitude'.
Amjad Ali said he had a run-in with 'bratty millennials' who refused to social distance while he was in a branch of Greggs in Burnley.
The 48-year-old said he popped in to buy himself a pasty and a couple of drinks when the family of five teens and their mum arrived and failed to stand behind the lines marked on the ground.
He decided to 'teach them a lesson' and handed over £20 to buy the entire tray of cheese and onion pasties after overhearing that was what the teens hoped to buy.
Ali said: "They were p***ed off when I walked off.
"I did that little pause at the door while they went to the counter and asked for the pasties, only to realise there were none left. I turned around, gave them a smile and walked off.
"I don't even have to wear the mask as I'm exempt, but when there are a lot of people around, especially elderly people, I will put it on.
"It's not my choice to wear it but if it makes other people comfortable [I will wear it].
"I did have my mask in my pocket and it was empty when I walked in. There was a woman at the counter. All of a sudden there were five girls. I'm assuming one was the mother.
"They were just being rude, and invading my space. They were making comments like, 'look at him, he's not wearing his mask'.
"As I'm moving forward they come up behind me and the woman behind the counter actually says to them, 'excuse me, would you mind standing behind that line please?'
"I turned around to look at the woman behind me and she was, I would say, in her early 50s.

"I said, 'excuse me', and they all said I should be wearing a mask. So I thought, 'well she's not wearing her mask either'. The woman wasn't saying anything.
"She wasn't telling them to be quiet or stop being rude. Then they were saying, 'can't wait to have a cheese and onion pasty, I've been dying for one all week'.
"I got to the till, looked back at them, and said, 'I'll buy all of them'. I bought the whole tray.
"When I went out, I went to see the homeless people who live under the car park and handed the pasties out to them.
"The reason I did it was because they looked like brats. Those kids now are going to give their mum grief.
"All she had to do was say, 'stop being so rude, be quiet and be patient'. She didn't. All I know is that she is going to be sitting there another 20 minutes waiting for [fresh] pasties [to be cooked]."
However, when media consultant Ali decided to share the story online, he was accused of making it up with some social media users even demanding he shares evidence that it happened.
Ali, who says he has no receipt, photos or transaction statement to back up his story, added: "I lead a very, very interesting life. I keep myself entertained and keep on doing stuff.
"I do get people who turn around and say I haven't done anything, so I send them proof. I don't need to, but I do it for the fun of it.
"I don't have the receipt from Greggs anymore. I didn't pay for the pasties by card, I paid cash.
"I didn't take any pictures of the pasties. I had them in two bags.
"The point is some people got taught a lesson, others got some food. Job done. That's a good result."
