Sometimes coffee is worth the fight, even if it means making a big scene in public. At this point in time, many restaurants have switched to drive-thru service only in order to keep customers and employees safe. One B.C. man didn't seem to like this and blocked the Tim Hortons drive-thru after being refused service while on foot. The entire incident was caught on video and has now gone viral. 

Tim Hortons coffee is one of Canada's main claims to fame and nothing was going to stand in the way of one B.C. man on his pursuit of a cup of joe. 

On the morning of Friday, April 17, a man walked up to a Tim Hortons drive-thru in Aldergrove asking for service. 

The unidentified man was allegedly denied service since he was walking and not driving. 

A man named Andy Bessem happened to be at the Tim Hortons drive-thru at the time of the incident and was able to capture the encounter on camera. 

“They won’t serve this truck driver so he’s blocking it,” wrote Bessem. 

In his public Facebook post, Bessem “shames” Tim Hortons for not serving the man

Narcity has reached out to Tim Hortons for comment and we will update this story when we receive a response.

“I spoke with the owner of this store and corporate office called me as well. they are going to have something in place for the drivers by Monday,” wrote the videographer. 

“As I mentioned at the beginning of all this is their hands are tied with insurance policy and can loose their license for serving anyone from the window. It’s good to know management is working to correct the situation.”

In the video, you can see the rather unimpressed man holding up a line up of several vehicles as he paces back and forth. 

Bessem says “we are waiting for the police to come” during the last few seconds of the video. 

According to the Aldergrove Star, Langley RCMP was called and after talking with the man, he left without incident although, he never did get his coffee. 

Bessem told the news outlet that he was there for about half an hour. 

Even though multiple motorists behind the truck driver allegedly offered to pay for his coffee, Bessem said it was about more than getting your morning cup of joe. 

Bessem himself has been a truck driver for 40 years and, according to the man, the display provided by Tim Horton's workers was disappointing as truck drivers are essential workers.  

Narcity spoke with Bessem who said the manager contacted him on April 20 and stated that Tim Hortons had resolved the issue so that "drivers don't have to go through what this driver did."
