Everyone sometimes gets annoyed at customer support, but this guy is taking it a bit too far during his visit to the Apple Store in Dijon, France.

This morning, the disgruntled customer walked in and started destroying various products with a steel ball of the kind that’s used in the classic French game Pétanque. If you’ve ever played the game, you know they’re very heavy.

In the video above, you can see him calmly undocking iPhones, iPod Touches and a MacBook Air, laying them flat on the table and crushing the screens with a barrage of firm smashes.

He is heard talking about ‘his consumer’s right’ and citing that he’s unhappy with how Apple handles his support case. Minutes later, security turns up and tries to escort him — but not without him trying to escape.

In the end, the team managed to  stop him and have police take him into custody, said Le Journal.
