Randy Moss has made more money in his 13-year career than most people will make in a lifetime, which must give him the right to treat others like dirt.

According to a report by the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Moss screamed at the co-owner of Tinucci’s Restaurant and Catering in the locker room after a Vikings practice last week because he apparently didn’t like the way the buffet looked.

“[Moss] came walking up,” Gus Tinucci said. “There were a couple of guys that were in line. I was carving some meat for a guy and all of a sudden I heard all this screaming and I was like, ‘Are you kidding me?’ I knew who it was immediately. I looked up and there he was.”

Tinucci said Moss used two profane words in a sentence where the ex-Vikings receiver said he wouldn’t feed the food to his dog.

“I was in shock,” Tinucci said. “I couldn’t believe it. It was quiet in there.”

Tinucci said he heard one player tell Moss to shut up. He wasn’t sure which player. A veteran player sent the Star Tribune a text message Tuesday that described Moss’ outburst as “bad.” Tinucci said two Vikings employees approached him afterward and apologized.

These are the type of stories about athletes that make you sick. Tinucci and his staff are professionals just like the Vikings, yet Moss felt the need to disrespect them for no reason. If he didn’t like the food, he could have politely declined and allowed his teammates to enjoy their dinner. He obviously has enough money to buy whatever dish he wants, so why be a jerk?

Of course, this wasn’t about the food. It was about Moss drawing attention to himself because he’s self-centered and self-conscious. He wanted to make sure that he caused a scene because he wants everyone to know how unhappy he is (for whatever reason). He’s a child and a brat, and here’s hoping he loses the use of his hands in some crazy knife and spoon eating accident.

What an a-hole.
