A Del Taco manager is out of a job after customers posted smartphone video of him getting mouthy in a dispute—just like they warned him they would, the Arizona Republic reports. "I don't give a [expletive], bro," the manager says at the drive-thru window in the viral video (WARNING: FOUL LANGUAGE), per ABC News. "Seriously, go ahead alright. Where you going to post it, YouTube? No one's going to [expletive] see it." Seems the disagreement started when the two customers—a man and a woman—didn't get sauce with their food, and the manager accused them of having a bad attitude. "Dude, I've done this a billion times," he says. "You guys give me [expletive] all the [expletive] time."

When the woman says she's never patronized this Del Taco before, the manager says, "I'm not talking about you specifically. I'm talking about you as a customer. So how long you guys want to do this? Five minutes? An hour? I can do this all [expletive] day." When the customers say they can get him fired by sending the video to his boss, the manager says, "I am the boss. My dad's actually a [expletive] owner, so good luck with that." In a statement, Del Taco says it was "appalled" by the manager's actions and fired him "immediately." Facebook users are debating the nearly three-minute-long video on Del Taco's Facebook page, with some calling the manager rude and others saying the customers over-reacted.
