    Good grief! That's awful!

    I'm a bad person, though, your subject line gave me a giggle. I was thinking, "Angry Hooters customer shoots two...? Two what? Two hooters?" Sorry, I've never actually grown all the way up...
    Just thinkin' out loud....

    Maybe he was expecting more for his money?

    OMG I never even read it that way. I'm sorry if that offends anyone now.

    It made me think of when I briefly worked as a hostess in a family restaurant... we had our share of angry customers... I can't imagine one of them turning around and doing this!

    Don't their cups of coffee cost an arm and a leg, on the basis that "No one goes to Hooters for coffee." is what I heard, but it might just be an Urban Legend?

    I have never ate at Hooters but I heard they had really good food, and yes I heard from GUYS and GIRLS.

    The customer who was shot has died: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,318972,00.html

    The patron who died from his injuries has been identified as 35-year-old Stacey Sherman of Applegate, Mich. Police said he was believed to be visiting family for the holidays.

    How sad.

    The suspect is a white male with missing front teeth, wearing jeans and a black jacket decorated in rhinestones.

    They're still trying to find him.

    This is a tragedy for the man who was killed.

    That having been said for some sick reason I have been ROFL over the title of this thread, and I did the same when I heard it on fox news this morning.

    Okay, that's it - I'm PM'ing a mod... I am not insulted though, LOL. I just don't want people rolling on the floor while we should be kind of solemn for the poor guy who died. Or something.

    Hey Janet, I poked fun earlier but I totally understand what you are saying...a guy died...over PURE BS...it's really not a laughing matter...
    BUT I mean damn, how hard is it really to keep up with what you have spent...if you have to be watching what you spend to start with it seems like you WOULD be watching what you spend!
