TOLEDO, OH — The staff of Alms For the Pour have been caught in the midst of a messy divorce between two of their formerly work married employees. Emily Carter and Seth Bronson much like any other pair, they’ve had their fair share of ups and downs. Today, however, it seems that a tipping point has been reached.
Seth was working window in the middle of the dinner rush when Emily ran up to the expo station and began mercilessly berating him. Those who witnessed her tirade believe that the main focus of Miss Carter’s malice towards the line cook was his opinion on the most recent season of Game of Thrones.
“I had seen them overcome so many things as each other’s favorite,” Mitch Tucker, the expo worker who witnessed the uncoupling, told Sauce On the Side, “they’ve been through bad ticket times, inscrutable mods, and terrible managers together. I never thought something as simple as Game of Thrones would have been able to bring them down.”
Seth’s belief that the eighth season of the wildly popular HBO series was underdeveloped and poorly written seems to have been an unforgivable sin to Miss Carter. “There was some other stuff she said about him never having seen The Wire, but I just kind of tuned her out at that point,” Mitch said, “I know everyone who’s seen it says the show is great, but I just don’t have the time to invest in it. Either way, everyone here can’t believe that something so petty would have torn them apart. It sounds like some middle school playground bullshit. Then again, I guess we do work in a restaurant.”
