PalmBayDaily A 7-Eleven patron who said “the customer is always right” threw a sandwich and hot cheese at a store clerk in Melbourne. The incident occurred earlier this morning at 1:50 a.m. when Stephanie L. Hicks, 31, walked into the 7-Eleven store at 1262 Aurora Road in Melbourne to purchase a sandwich and a cup full of hot nacho cheese. While in the store, the clerk asked Hicks not to open the hot cheese dispenser. Hicks told officers she didn’t like the employee’s attitude. When Hicks walked up to pay for her items, the 7-Eleven clerk denied her service. Hicks then threw the sandwich and the cup of hot cheese across the counter, which hit the clerk. The clerk told Hicks she was calling the police. Hicks told the clerk that “the customer is always right” before waiting outside the front door until police arrived. Officers said the clerk had yellow nacho cheese on her hands, feet, and on the floor behind the register. The Melbourne Police officer watched the in-store video of the incident, which shows Hicks throwing the items at the clerk across the counter. Hicks was arrested and transported to the Brevard County Jail where she was charged with Battery.
The customer is always right does not work in every situation, or example, if the customer throws a cup of hot nacho cheese and a sandwich in the face of the clerk who is serving them the customer is wrong. That’s exactly what happened in a Florida 7-Eleven, a Florida woman named Stephanie Hicks tried to pry open the hot cheese dispenser for some reason, and when the clerk reprimanded her she threw hot nacho cheese and a sandwich in the clerk’s face while screaming “the customer is always right.” Stephanie Hicks then stuck around until police arrived to tell her side of the story, but with the clerk still covered in hot nacho cheese and video evidence of the incident, Stephanie Hicks was arrested for battery. If I was hot in the face with hot nacho cheese, I would immediately pop open the nearest bag of Tostitos, and have a delicious snack. You do not waste cheese.
