When you love what you do, you tend to get offensive about your work. Notice how I didn't say defensive, because when you're defensive, you're just trying to avoid what really upsets you. When you're defensive, it's usually a response to someone touching an area that's a sore spot for you. Like if someone says my diet is crap or I have love handles, I get really defensive.

Like this chef who threw chili powder in the eyes of a customer who gave his honest opinion when a member of the staff asked him about his meal.

He claimed the meat in the curry he ordered was "tough and rubbery", was was his appetizer. They didn't mention their dissatisfaction at first.

And that's where things went south very quickly.

Michelle Evans, David's wife, relayed the whole story:

"When our mains came and the meat was like what I can only describe as rubber we told the young waiter when he came and asked us ‘how is your food?’ that the meat was very tough and rubber.

To cut a long story short the Indian chef came to our table he was extremely rude and aggressive and accused us of not wanting to pay for our food.

We said we would eat the rest of our food but the meat was really not eatable.

He started swearing at me so David said there’s no need to swear at my wife, the chef caused quite a scene and was shouting and swearing so David walked back to the kitchen door with him asking for an apology."

It was when David asked for an apology that the chef went berserk and grabbed a bowl of chili powder to throw in his face.
