Restaurant receives one-star review after waiter kicked pumpkin at customer's head
| Last updated
A restaurant has received a negative review after a waiter kicked a pumpkin at a guest.
Halloween may be over for another year, but one food fan’s fright has been immortalised in video form. Take a look:
TikToker and waiter Zac Hodges took to the platform last month to post CCTV footage of him accidentally hitting a customer in the head with a pumpkin.
In a video, posted to the platform, the content creator could be seen attempting to perform a Keepy-Uppy football trick with the winter squash whilst standing by the venue’s host desk.
Unfortunately, as he attempted to use the fruit like a ball, he ended up launching it across the restaurant and smacked a guest in the head. That’s got to hurt though, right?
Posting the footage on TikTok, Zac wrote in overlay text: “POV: you lose your job for hitting a guest in the head with a pumpkin.”
After knocking it into the lady, the creator could be seen running after the pumpkin and we can only assume that he attempted to apologise profusely to her.
On the overlay of the video, a screenshot of a one-star review has also been included.
It was posted on Google Reviews by an ‘anonymous’ reader, and read: “I got hit in the head with a pumpkin while waiting on my to-go order.”
Since posting the divisive video on social media, viewers have come out in their droves to debate Zac’s actions.
One Instagram user wrote: “Why the f**k would you play football in a restaurant?
“Literally the worst place to do it. One star is justified because you're an employee there so you represent the workplace why don't people understand it.”
A second said: “What in the superhero strength is that? Dude barely flicked his foot and sent that s**t flying lmao.”
“Impressive he kicked a pumpkin that far tbf,” wrote another.
And a fourth commented on the video saying: “Should have given her the ol’ ‘Do you want sauce with that chip?’”
Zac has since shared a follow-up video on the platform and has stated that he was allowed to return to his job following Pumpkin Gate.
The second clip has amassed over 40.9 million views and featured overlay text that reads: “POV: Management lets you come back to work after the ‘pumpkin incident’ went viral.
In the caption, the waiter has pleaded with fans to cease calling him a Halloween-themed nickname.
He wrote: “Please stop calling me Mr. Pumpkin,” followed by two crying emojis.
So, to avoid getting a pumpkin to the face, you might want to eat your meal in at this restaurant.
