Nope. I left with a bloodied up face, gashes to my arm from falling, but no burrito. I have no idea what became of it.
Did you get a broken nose or anything? I don't understand why they charged you..... or why you didn't sue the place. I also don't understand how the employee randomly hit you over a bag of food that cost them maybe 5 dollars to make. Violence seems like an extreme response.
It was very extreme - but no broken nose. Also, as mentioned previously he was very intoxicated and already agitated by the crowd.
There were photos of my bloodied face, but we couldn't prove that a punch didn't take place *after* I took out the knife outside, as unfortunately there was no record of the events inside (no video footage), so it was my word vs. his. The only thing the police saw was a random kid (me) outside with a pocket knife out in a group of people that were likely not involved in the initial fight. So that's what they put in the police report. They never interviewed anyone from inside, where it started (those people likely left as soon as the fight broke out), and so none of that made it into the arrest record.
In retrospect I probably could have taken it to a trial, and had a good chance at prevailing. But at the time my father was sick with terminal cancer, and in my college-aged mind the thing I wanted most was for it to simply be over and not prolong it.
In retrospect, your friends should have called the police if they wanted to defend you, stop people inside from leaving before the cops arrive, taken testimony and helped you get the free burritos for life that you deserve.
At no point ever should the customer get their face fucking bloodied. That should not enter the question of burrito ordering. If you're going to get fat, you might as well keep your face pretty.
