Miesha Tate is rapidly becoming a world famous WMMA star. Her bouts against Ronda Rousey and stint on the first mixed gender season of The Ultimate Fighter have cast ‘Cupcake’ in to the media limelight. Her recent rematch with ‘Rowdy’ was hailed as the continuation of WMMA’s biggest rivalry.
It seems Tate has made a new arch nemesis, this time in the form of a female gas station attendant. I know, bizarre right? Check out Tate’s rant on her official facebook account:
Ok I have to vent (That's what facebook is for right?) So I'm standing in line at the gas station to buy a spicy pickle and put the rest in the gas tank, when a fan of mine pops up and is like "oh my gosh Miesha how are you, great fight!!" I go on to thank him and its my turn at the register finally so I say clear as day to the lady, take to cost of the pickle out of the $60 and put the rest on pump 4 please" she looks at me annoyed brakes the money as th fan continues to ask if I will give him an autograph I smile politely and oblige.
The lady goes on to help the next costume and I ask can I have my receipt please (which she should have given me in the first place but I didn't have the chance to ask between her rush I and being cordial with my fan) so she frustratingly prints a receipt after letting me know how much check trouble that is for her. I say thanks and go to pump my gas where it is hailing outside and there's no gas money on my pump... sooo I grab my receipt she gave me and its a receipt for cough drops... Im not amused so I walk back in through the hail again and flag her down to tell her this is the wrong receipt and she also did not put the gas money I gave her on pump #4.
Should goes on to lecture me saying that I should wait to engage in conversation until after my transaction is complete. LOL!!! I said "where is your managers number I want to speak to him, you are very rude I am the customer I can do whatever I want and Im sorry that I am nice to my fans" Then she scoffed at me, gave me the run around for the phone number then finally gave me the store number where she is the only one working tonight, so I figured we could all give GALE a call an let her know how much we appreciate great customer service! 5*&-&^$-£!*&
In case you don’t know, the censored section at the end of the rant is the gas station attendees’ phone number. Beef with a fighter is one thing, but to give a world of virtual weirdos (no offense weirdos) this shop assistants number seems rather out of line.
It appears to be a formality in the grand scheme of things, but the UFC’s code of conduct for fighters spits in the figurative face of formality. Many fighters including Matt Mitrione and Miguel Torres have landed in hot water for media slurs, could Tate be next?
