SLOW BOIL: Woman Filmed Screaming At Michael's Employee Threw A Hissy Fit At Boystown Coffee Shop, Too

Wiggle those hips, girl! Sass. It. Up! | YouTube
SEE THE NEW VIDEO HERE

Let's rewrite the narrative, everybody.

She's a screamer with a big heart and a $90,000 salary—just ask her.

Oh, yeah. And she also yells at white people.

Days after a Boystown woman's rant against a manager at our local Michael's crafts store went viral, a new video has emerged that apparently shows the same woman blasting the staff at our neighborhood Peet's Coffee shop.

"You are the bitch. You are literally the bitch," she bellows at a bemused barista.

Three snaps and a ZEE, girl!

"This is not your town, this is Chicago, and you're not going to call women 'bitches,'" the woman fires, laying down the law as to exactly what kind of conduct is appropriate in public.

The video emerged late Monday, but was reportedly recorded in July at the cafe located on the corner of Halsted and Cornelia in Boystown.

"Oh my God! You're a flooooor managerrrrr," she wails while giving her hips a good wiggle.

Then, she lays into Bobby the manager about "filing a police report against Becky" and all sorts of other hot Halsted Street tea.

According to unverified information posted widely last night, the woman in the Michael's video has lived near Peet's cafe.

"I could stereotype you and call you something," the timid flower warns. "I'm going back to my $90,000 a year job while you sit down here."

Or not.

According to Sinai Health System, the woman in the Michael's video "ceased" working there in September, about 2 months after this video was recorded.

A GoFundMe campaign has raised more than $13,000 for the Michael's manager who was allegedly targeted in the widely-viewed outburst that was filmed last Wednesday at 3131 North Clark.

We have absolutely no idea why the manager deserves $13,000 for that. And the Peet's Coffee employees are probably wondering the same thing.

  2. Once saw a pedestrian throw an emotional tantrum near Addison/Broadway. The man was screaming and calling a driver @ the intersection a b----. I didn't film. I asked him what the problem was, and told him his behavior was not acceptable. He quickly back downed. Let's all breath and think :)

    1. I've thrown at least a couple tantrums as a pedestrian. When your life or safety are severely threatened due to the carelessness of another, I'm going to have to say you are entitled to throw a tantrum. In a coffee shop or business over something so trivial, yes, not acceptable.

    2. I respectfully disagree. This video is going viral and millions are seeing it. In most cases these types of videos are interesting to watch because both parties are being ridiculous, But, in the micheals case the store manager remained calm and respectful in the face of a tough situation that could have easily turned into a shouting match, but didn't, thanks to the manager. We as a society are applauding the manager and showing generosity for her patience and handling of the situation. This type of action, by our society, shows that patience and respect can and should be rewarded. Should everybody get a gofundme account everytime they're patient, No, but not everyone gets millions of views and sends a lesson to millions of members of our society that patience is the acceptable response to such people.

    3. That's the part of the video that we saw. Something else happened at that counter and I'm very sure the clerk was no innocent party.

      After an altercation on a CTA I did my part to report the driver herself instigated AND escalated the situation.

      Delete
    4. Why should anyone be rewarded for being "patient"?? How about having the cops haul her skanky ass to jail and then showing up in court to complain about her behavior? "Patience" is not going to prevent her next public tantrum. Jail time might.

  10. Yea, it seems odd for the GoFundMe. But she felt it was a good idea, and others donated. It really is none of our business.

  11. I can guarantee this is the same exact crazy white lady who has basically behaving in an irrational, insulting and demeaning attitude moths ago, Police officers were called to the scene, and within minutes one common observer could determine it was Peets Employees at Cornelia ad Halsted was NOT at fault, NOT the fault of the exceedingly polite police office officers who came (think 3 did), one cop was an African American and the other female Latino officer, and this wannabe "privileged" white girl wannabe-patron nut started berating the policemen because they were allegedly "racist against white rich women" which was false, despite crazy lady didn't have a dollar in a pocket and wanted to remain on premise even after stating the crazy lazy was not allowed, That is when police were called, and at that point the Screaming Unstable Off her medication lady entered the lobby with all police officers witnessing this saw the poor, friendly, quiet Barista Peets Employee a "fat bitch" and that the lunatic customer lady said she made $95,000 a year and slammed out the door to cry like a baby and then called for police supervisors saying that she was going to contact NBC news to film the poor white lady discrimination she succumbed to. I suggest that Peet's strongly contacts 911, and insists in having her arrested on complaints for disorderly conduct, breach of peace, or for Criminal Trespass. This woman is way off stable and thinks she is a celebrity in her own mind, and perhaps she needs a to have ride to the station in handcuffs for calm down for mug shot because she thinks she can do or whatever she wants berating and threatening people, the only way they learn when they have a wake up call in a processing jail cell with a real street prostitute who ain't gonna take he priveledged white shit.

    2. I herd that she was arrested in Oak Park IL in September for trespassing

      http://patch.com/illinois/oakpark/oak-park-police

      SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 8
      Trespassing Arrest
      Police charged Jennifer Boyle, 26, of Chicago, with trespassing after she refused to leave the Carleton of Oak Park about 12:15 a.m. She was processed and released on bond.

      I think she may be having a mental breakdown.

    3. I don't think this has anything to do with "white privilege". Has to do with an unstable, possibly mentally ill, person who just happens to be white. What would you call her if she was black? Hispanic? Asian? This whole race first thing is getting very old.

    3. LMAO to the response about COH. The threat of "better not show her face in boystown" demonstrates, in simple form, chest pumping. Here we have a mentally ill female white who is verbally abusive but not physically violent. We have threats against her as her behavior is not welcome. Contrast that with the people who are robbing and beating people senseless. Where is your bravado in that instance? Oh wait, it's not a single, unarmed white female and those other people will hurt you, possibly even kill you.

  16. Gotta disagree on the GFM. Its a nice unexpected gesture symbolic of Chicago wanting to reduce racial tensions and heal. It has nothing to do with the "damages" the manager recieved ( a few drinks and hopefully she gets over it). Its the holidays, she received a windfall, hopefully she is a special person as the GFM page indicates, enjoy the unexpected gift lady! right place right time to be on the receiving end of a rant.

    2. I'm not sure why what people do privately with their own money, is our business. No court ordered this and no liberal media said we're all racist if we don't give. It was only supposed to be about $400. A good night in River North.

    The GFM page is odd. I mean, I feel bad for the people who have been verbally abused by this charmer, but wouldn't the money be spent on antipsychotics and therapy for this woman?

  20. The GoFund Me account was not started by the employee. It was started by a customer with a $400 goal to give the woman a few days off from work after a 45 minute public berating. People just kept giving and its almost at 20k now. This employee does a lot of real community work (COH should take notes) and seems to be nice person. The money will probably go to her side craft business or next years tuition so she doesn't have to be berated publicly for $12/hr. As a counselor she'll take it privately for $40/hr. (see what I did there?)

  21. I'd love to get into a political "discussion" with her. As a gay log cabin republican, I'm sure she'd freak out. Oh, what would we all do without white females progs telling us gay men how we should think and feel?? I hope they finally lock her up.

  22. Banned from Michaels? Watch out JoAnn's ... white girl gotta craft!

    I spent a few years at one of these chains (before the age of cell phone videos) and craft store retail is not all fabric flowers and glitter. I've seen my share of scrapbook paper fueled hissy fits over the most mundane 10 cent crap ... but absolutely nothing like this. Most people, even on their worst day, wouldn't think of throwing an adult tantrum.

    I really do hope this angry/spoiled/racist/immature girl is shamed into leaving this city. Count her with the rest of the hopeless trash mentioned in this blog that is more than welcome to leave Lake View.

    The employee who will be receiving the funds sounds like a kind, family oriented and hardworking person. The kind of person we need more of in this city.

  29. Watching both these videos, I see a serious mental health issue. My sister has schizophrenia which manifested when she was 20. Her face was so angelic that people thought she was "normal" but alas she experienced terrible hallucinations and voices. Her behavior was angry and argumentative in the beginning years. Very similar to this young womans.

  32. This, ladies and gentlemen, is the face of Borderline Personality Disorder (I do not personally know this person, she's just a textbook demonstration of the disorder).

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Can you please elaborate? I found this thread after googling this woman and "personality disorder".

      I have a younger sister (we're in our 30s) who could BE this woman (minus the conservative slant, because she's a died-in-the-wool, rastafarian, Clinton Democrat). Being around her is like wondering when you're accidentally going to step on a landmine, and once she's set off, nothing can de-escalate her. In fact the more you try to reason with her the more pointed, aggressive and louder she gets. The rant in the Michael's store could have been a fill-in-the-blank script my sister wrote for this woman. The body language, the theme, the tone of voice, even the stange way she honestly believes someone with deep, down, horrible motives wounded her to the core through doing or saying something something so, so trivial. I've been on the receiving end of one of these rants several times, and my poor mom deals with them daily; Because she looks normal we can't get her help. My mother is in her 70s and I'm terrified of the day my sister's care will fall to me - we're both cursed with an inherited genetic physical disability, and i can barely care for myself some days, and i wish with all my heart I could free my mom from it, but she is determined to keep my sister safe. My sister and i no longer speak, the last rant was enough for me. Here's the most heartbreaking thing, though: My sister is one of the kindest, softest- hearted, most intelligent people I've ever known, but each year she just gets worse.

      I've run across BPD when researching this before and It always seemed like the best match, but i can't prove it because it's not like my sister has these meltdowns while she's sitting in a shrink's office, And my mom isn't tech savvy enough to record her on film (and I'm not even sure if that's legal).

      I don't know if you're up on this subject, but your comment made me think youb might be. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

  36. I don't think she is mentally ill just because she is mad at a lousy retail clerk. I have hated many retail clerks because they were douchebags. Just because I didn't throw a tantrum at them doesn't mean I am more emotionally healthy than her. She gets it all out while I bottle it all up inside. Her way is probably better.

    2. I agree. I spent 8+ years working in retail and dealt with angry, entitled brats as well as people who clearly were mentally ill. In the Michael's video, this woman is angry, yes, but her ranting is all over the place. Saying stuff about that woman's husband cheating and her child stealing and the comment about the manager's father being dead...that's is NOT normal behavior. Entitled customers will rant about how the customer is always right and how they deserve this or that, how they were horribly mistreated, but that's about it. I obviously know nothing about this woman's mental health for certain, but those bizarre personal attacks (and how quickly they rolled off her tongue) in the video suggest something more than "entitlement".

  39. My guess is this situation is kind of like in sports where the original transgression doesn't draw the attention of the refs but the retaliation gets the flag or foul. Her reaction was way overboard but I'm positive the clerk is not completely innocent.
