Shop Assistant Suspended For Calling John Terry A ‘Pig’ In Front Of His Wife

A 23-year-old shop assistant has apparently been suspended by her employers after calling John Terry a “pig”.

According to The Sun, Elisha Ram, who worked at Bentall’s swanky department store in Kingston-upon-Thames, was working behind the clothes counter and greeted Terry when he walked in.

As Terry walked away, Elisha then turned to her colleagues and said, “He’s quite good looking in real life – but he’s a pig” in reference to you-know-what.

Elisha’s colleagues then frantically began telling her to be quiet – for good reason, as it turns out.

“They were like, ‘Sssh sssh sssh,’ and I said, ‘What? Why?’ And his wife was right there,” Elisha told the tabloid.

Sadly, the comment was indeed overheard by Terry’s wife Toni. The Chelsea defender then asked to see a manager as Elisha burst into tears and apologised.

“She looked right at me and then she looked away. I didn’t even know she was there — I didn’t know what she looked like in the first place. My heart dropped and I felt so bad.”

“He was coming towards me and said, ‘I don’t appreciate you calling me a pig in front of my wife,’” continued Elisha.

“I said, ‘Oh my God,’ and I turned into a little child. I said I was really, really sorry.”

“Then I just snapped, got defensive and retaliated, saying, ‘You’re a disgrace.’”

Amazingly enough, Miss Ram’s parting shot didn’t help alleviate the situation as she was then suspended from her job at Bentall’s All Saints concession, pending an investigation into her conduct.

A written apology was also then sent to Terry on behalf of everyone at the store.

Make of that what thou will.

    Could have been Ryan Giggs the sister in law shagger, or Rooney the scouse slag shagger…make of it what you will.

    The funniest thing about it is that Terry knows hes a pig, so does his chav wife, everyone in that store…..and everyone in the world. Shes just saying what we all know.

    “…in reference to you-know-what.”

    The infidelity with a team-mates ex? The racist abuse? Attacking a bouncer with a bottle? Drunkenly abusing a group of stranded American in a hotel as they watched the events of 9/11???

    We need more information here Elisha!

    We are all entitled to our opinions however as an employee your opinions take back stage to your employment. Her behaviour was totally un-professional and warrants immediate termination. BTW good luck trying to find further employment with such an attitude.

    Just a little loud-mouth trying to make a name for herself – soon to be appearing in some tabloid rag, no doubt.

    As an employee serving a customer, you should show respect to that person, whatever their background or your opinion on them.

    Please don’t judge her as a hero – she’s just another addition to the growing collection of the UK’s morons!

    Well I don’t think J.Terry could say that the comment was either ‘slander’ or ‘defamatory’ given his history.

    However, the pig community could possibly sue as they are having their name besmirched. I can see ‘babe’ or ‘danepak’ taking this shop assistant to court on reasonable grounds.

  8. Blue says:

    Just saying what most of us think… But you do it when the customer’s gone, not still in the shop

  9. Al says:

    To be fair she thought he was gone and was having a discussion with a colleague about a customer which every shop worker in the land does, just unlucky his wife was there. You would think he would show some humility and just let it go given the gulf in social status, I mean as someone else pointedout everyone know’s he’s a pig so whats the problem, but no, true to form he reports her and likely gets her the sack. The cheek of this minimum wage nobody

  10. Zam says:

    Jesus, a pig is about the closest thing to a compliment I can imagine calling the utter scumbag.

    If the shoe fits and all that…
