CHICAGO — Most Chicagoans know that when you go to Ed Debevic’s, you can expect to be treated like dirt.

That’s what happened to Facebook user LaNetta Limb Maxfield, who was visiting Chicago from Idaho. She recorded a video of her waitress “Cherry” sassing her and her group while placing their order.

While hurling insults at the adults for ordering off the children’s menu — “You wanna cheap out, that’s cool” — Cherry was quick to admit that if she provided nice service, she would probably get fired.

“You know what, grandpa? If I was nice to you I’d get canned,” Cherry says. “If you want good service, you go somewhere else. I know Hooters is probably more your speed but you came here on purpose.”

The video has been viewed on Facebook more than 2 million times since it was posted Aug. 10 Check it out below:
