Florida Restaurant Owner Tries to Shoot Unhappy Customers

All this over some miso soup.

All this over some miso soup.

Ah, hospitality: A Winter Park, Florida, restaurant owner joined a cook in attacking two diners last week after both complained about their meal and one refused to pay. James Marshall Phillips III and Destin McMahon say they were leaving Wazzabi restaurant after a real bummer of a meal when a line cook and Quoc Tran, the restaurant's owner, charged outside into the parking lot and began kicking Phillips's car. Tran produced a .22 caliber handgun and fired at least two shots at Phillips's car, hitting his bumper. "This man wanted to kill me over a $19 tab," Phillips tells the Orlando Sentinel. "It's really scary that that kind of stuff can happen. This man tried to take my life." He has vowed to only go to restaurants now where customers have sex on the tables instead.
