Taco Bell Apologizes After Posting Sign Calling Out Late Workers

My biggest pet-peeve is tardiness and it looks like this Taco Bell in Ohio feels the same way as well. According to Fox News, the boss at the Fairlawn, Ohio Taco Bell location was more than fed up that his Taco Bell employees didn't show up to work on time. So in his anger, he posted a note on the door sharing that the dining room was closed until "this store's workers can show up to work on time". Ouch!

Boss Calls Out Late Taco Bell Employees with Sign

I absolutely hate it when people are tardy. Being late wastes time and shows me that you don't care that you are making people wait on you. My family has always had this problem (bless them) and whenever I invite them places I always tell them to meet me 10-15 minutes earlier to make sure they show up on time. So I totally understand their frustration. However, some people thought the fast-food restaurant could have handled the situation a little better.

Paula Duhon Boss posted a photo of the sign on Facebook and reactions were mixed.

Dining room is closed until this stores workers can show up to work on time! We will happily serve you through the drive thru as quickly as possible. We're very sorry for the inconvenience. Please bare with us until we find the right team to best serve our community

Some found the note comical while the higher-ups at Taco Bell did not. According to a statement, a spokesperson for Taco Bell said, "The posting of this sign should not have happened, and the team was immediately re-trained on proper protocol. We can confirm that the dining room reopened within an hour, and we apologize to our customers for any inconvenience."

Let's just say those restaurant employees will probably never be late again.
