Waitress Shot Dead at Waffle House for Telling Customer to Put Out Cigarette

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Waffle House customer shot and killed an employee after she told him to put out a cigarette at the U.S. 90 business in the early-morning hours Friday, police said.


Biloxi police Sgt. Donnie Dobbs said the 52-year-old employee was shot in the head after arguing with the customer about smoking inside the restaurant around 1 a.m. Friday.

The employee, who has not been identified pending notification of next of kin, died at Merit Health Biloxi a short time later. She had a suffered a single gunshot wound to the head.

The customer, Johnny Max Mount, 45, was arrested as he was walking out of the restaurant. He was booked at the Harrison County jail on a charge of first-degree murder."

The Waffle House is a Southern institution; you can`t drive a country mile without passing one or two of these low-rent roadside cafes.

The only dress code is "no shoes, no shirt, no service ", but otherwise you can wear pajamas, overalls, or Daisy Dukes (acceptable attire for males or females.)

The waitresses call you honey, the customers punctuate their conversations with farts and belches, and you`re lucky if the short-order cook washes his hands after taking a dump.

Post Zombie Apocalypse Waffle Houses will still be open for business, and it will be impossible to tell the zombie customers from the pre-apocalypse redneck diners.

It`s not surprising that a Waffle House server was shot to death for having the temerity to tell a customer to extinguish his cigarette. Anything, and I mean anything, is liable to happen at a Waffle House at one o`clock in the morning.
