“Very Young” New York Restaurant Server Finds Out What R-E-S-P-E-C-T Means to ARETHA FRANKLIN
Going after that $.24 tax it costs to eat in at a fast food restaurant can end up costing the go-er after-er to have left a sour taste in the mouth of the customer, and well…we know that’s bad for business—especially when the customer is a Queen.
According to our friends at Associated Press, Queen of Soul legend Aretha Franklin had a few words about a New York server.
After performing a sold-out show, Franklin ordered a hamburger at Johnny Rockets and was berated after being told she wasn’t allowed to sit down and eat because she had ordered takeout.
The Queen stated the
overzealous restaurant worker was [quote] “very rude, unprofessional, and nasty” [unquote].
According to a spokesperson for the franchise, the owner apologized for the actions of the employee who they stated the server was “a new and very young employee”
Oh, never your worry about all this Snickers and burger eating the Queen is doing.
According to a recent interview with her native Detroit television station WDIV-TV Channel 4, Franklin said she was determined to never be grossly “overweight ever” again.
In case you didn’t know, the 72 year-old Natural Woman singer has slimmed down quite well and is gone on record for saying she owes it to her brisk walks while visiting stores like Walmart, Kmart, Meijer and the like and is not afraid to work out in public.
Aretha says that to that routine, she is in much better shape now: “The weight that I am at now, I said, ‘I am going to own this weight. I will never, ever, be the size that I was again.”
She confirmed to Billboard just recently that she has been in discussion with TV networks and filmmakers about “a full-length movie.”
