First of all, Credit to this guy for getting the shit smacked out of him and for instantly engaging in hand to hand combat. He could have easily allowed to Ihop man to hold him back but not him. He’s got too much Chad in him to allow that.
But next time, He’s gotta see this smack coming. I mean, How could you not? When has an argument at Ihop ever ended with one Gentlemen saying ” Agree to Disagree, Good Day sir” The answer is never. It’s never happened ever. If someone comes at you at an overnight pancake spot, You either gotta be prepared to throw hands or run. No other option. So I give the man credit for fighting but I would say his awareness needs some work.
