Restaurant Server Fired For Obscene Note On Officer’s Receipt

TORRANCE (AP) – A Pieology spokeswoman says an employee for the California-based pizza chain was fired after writing “(obscenity) The Cops” on a receipt for a local police officer’s takeout order.

The Los Angeles Daily News reports the officer, who was in uniform Thursday at Pieology in Torrance, did not respond and left a tip when the female cashier handed him the receipt with the obscene anti-police message, a gesture that started a firestorm Monday on social media.

A Pieology spokeswoman says the employee was fired and the worker’s message does not reflect the attitude of the Rancho Santa Margarita-based restaurant.

The officer, who declined to speak publicly Monday and asked a department spokesman to speak for him, did not talk to the server. Instead, he decided not to make a scene.

  1. You can bet the worker (or workers) at that place have been spitting in the police officers’ food for a long time now.
