Why would anyone expect anything else? After all, the people they hire are just a part of a "Chain of Fools"!

In most cases, people who do that, feel no need to tip, happens here occasionally and I call them on it. Cheap aholes!

Whether she is a celebrity or not, to yell at a woman in her 70s who decided to sit down to wait for her food is heartless.

And these are the same folks who believe they should earn fifteen dollars an hour for saying "You want fries with that?"

Why would one order a meal to go, and then sit there, but regardless of that, there was no need to yell at customer. I could care less about his or her status. If a customer paid for their meal, no caused a ruckus, or what have you, why bother them?

They would order a meal to go and sit there because someone had to make that meal to go and when you're 72 years old you just might want to sit down and rest while that is being done.

Especially just after performing a show.

What incredibly unprofessional behavior. I can tell you if I order a take out and I'm tired and see a likely spot, I'm going to sit down. If I accidently sit in the wrong place, I won't insist on that spot,  but I do expect a civil apology, explanation, and, if at all possible, another comfortable place to wait. I'm 54 but the age and status doesn't matter it's only common courtesy. Maybe they have had trouble with people sitting down who are not customers (coming in off the court), but there is no excuse for such ugly behavior. Sounds like the waitress just 'waving her fists', not caring who she was or why she was sitting there. I hope that waitress has straightened her act. Saying she can't sit because her order is a take out was over the top but the remark 'don't you know who she is?" is pointless. A shrieking waitress wouldn't be listening, anyway or care if she did.

Often, when I hear of someone acting in a very unprofessional or unusually impolite manner, I try to work backwards; what could have caused such behavior? It was pointed out as a possibility elsewhere in this thread, but what makes the most sense to me is the possibility that the particular branch had a history of people getting orders "to go", and then taking them to a table and eating them there, requiring a clean-up and screwing a wait staff member out of a tip.

 Certainly, that may have part of it. Also, the wait person may sometimes be a nice person but was also overworked, tired and stressed out (in a food court, especially) but such circumstances are still reasons not excuses. Maybe the area needs to be reorganized as well.
