Greggs Customer Furious After Worker's Joke About How Often She's At The Bakery
21-year-old Kathy Readon said that the experience was her 'worst fears happening at once' and complained online.
So, what did she get as consolation?
A Greggs voucher, of course! Whether or not she'll return to spend it is anyone's guess.
Anyway, Readon went into a Greggs branch in Hampshire that she frequents to buy a slice of pizza the other day, when an employee behind the counter said: "You're in here every day, you're going to get sick of this eventually."
She told the staff member that she couldn't afford to eat in Greggs every day, before taking Facebook to name and shame the staff member and complain to the company.
She says the sent her an apology, and a six quid voucher for whatever she wants from the shop.
She's since been attracting quite a bit of criticism online for what some folks see as an over-reaction.
However, Kathy defended her actions and said that she suffers from anxiety.

She said: "Literally all that happened was I went in - I am a regular there, I work down the road and have been doing so for a year.
"I'm very anxious, I don't really talk to people. But I went in, I ordered what I normally order and I think he was trying to be banterous [sic] with me but it did not come off that way.
"He essentially just made fun of me for ordering pizza and it kind of felt like he was making fun of unhealthy habits.
"It came across like he was picking on me. There were other people in the store and he kept saying that I was in there every single day.
She continued: "I wish I had the income that would allow me to be at Greggs every single day but I don't.
"When I said this he argued with me about it. During the interaction I also told him he was making me feel very anxious and he ignored it."
"He carried on speaking to me in the same manner, saying the same things. 'I have lots of mental health things so I fear public interaction on a daily basis. I'm always worried that something like that is going to happen. I invent it in my head.
"But then it did happen in real life and it was like my worst fears happening all at once."
To be fair, since the incident, Kathy has deleted the post and admitted that she might have overreacted.
She explained: "Greggs have said they're very sorry and that this is not the behaviour they expect.
"They said that they're going to let their area manager know and things are going to be done and apparently I will notice improvements, which is nice. To be honest, I'm quite happy with Greggs' response."
