A customer was left hangry after finding out their favourite bacon butty place was closed.
The disappointed diner wrote a furious note when they discovered Catherine’s, in Rochdale, would open two hours late on Saturday morning.
Owner Catherine Laycock had told customers on Facebook there would be a delay because she was getting a flu jab.
But one disgruntled person didn’t get the message.
And after walking to the cafe on Edenfield Road, Norden, from their home on Durnford Close – just a quarter of a mile away – they were not impressed.
In a handwritten note left for the team at Catherine’s, all in capital letters, the customer wrote: ‘It’s absolutely disgusting that this cafe isn’t open on time.
‘I’ve come all the way from Durnford Close for a bacon butty. Well you can shove it up your a***.
‘I’ll go to Wildblood’s from now on.’
Catherine shared the note after finding it on her return from the flu jab.
She wrote: ‘All safely jabbed for flu… one little prick at 10am and received this from another on arrival to the cafe… flabbergasted.’
After sharing the note online, Catherine’s was overwhelmed by heartwarming comments from customers who rallied to the cafe’s support.
One person wrote: ‘Omg they seriously need to get over themselves! Rude just rude!’
Another said: ‘Anger management needed for this plonker, I do hope they didn’t choke on their bacon bap.’
A third customer wrote: ‘What a sad sack. One customer you must be so glad to be rid of.
‘You do a great job, we love calling in for a coffee. Makes my blood boil the bloody selfishness of some people.’
Another added: ‘Heads high, beautiful smiles on your beautiful faces, and carry on with your outstanding food and even more outstanding service.’
After receiving well wishes from her customers, Catherine thanked them.
On Saturday evening, she wrote: ‘I’m a half full glass kind of girl, thank you for your love and support and if I can turn this bad press around I will.’
