Netizens said both parties are to blame as they should know better that raging anger may lead to physical abuse or violence.
A person who doesn’t control their temper should isolate themselves from family, friends and in this case, customers.
Some people who fly into rages have low self-esteem, and use their anger as a way to manipulate others and feel powerful.
At the same time, netizens said the customer should have check food prices at the restaurant before ordering.
