There were some big events in 2017, like the new administration and the solar eclipse. But let’s take a minute to talk about these fast-food scandals of the year instead.
Burger King’s impatient manager - When pregnant customer Lizzie Ramsey took too long to place her order at a Burger King in Ohio last month, the manager yelled at her to “hurry up.” Ramsey was annoyed, so she went inside and the manager kept screaming at her, but she filmed the entire scene and the video went viral. Not the best PR for BK.
That couple who had sex inside a Domino’s - A couple in the U.K. was caught on security cameras getting busy at a Domino’s while waiting for their pizza order. Since the dirty deed was captured on film, they were both looking at jail time for “obscene and disgusting acts,” but were sentenced to 12 months of “community orders” - which is punishment outside of jail and a six-month curfew where they had to be home between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m.
The Wendy’s firework display - The day after the fourth of July, a group of teenage guys pulled a prank at Wendy’s in Deerfield Beach, Florida. They tossed a lit firework inside the restaurant and it landed right behind a worker. Thankfully that person wasn’t hurt, but reports say the firework left a seven-inch hole in the restaurant’s wall.
The cop who was refused service at McDonald’s - It wasn’t service with a smile when Officer Scott Naff with the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries was allegedly denied service by a drive-thru worker at Mickey D’s. The employee reportedly said, “I ain’t serving no cops.” And that didn’t go over so well.
Taco Bell’s tea-flinging fight - When former Taco Bell employee Margarita went in to pick up her last paycheck from the Converse, Texas restaurant, she was caught on film trying to empty one of those big tea dispensers onto her ex-manager. But the former boss fought back by hurling a different tea dispenser at the former employee.
McDonald’s “Hamburglar” - Last month, a woman was caught climbing in through the drive-thru of a closed Maryland McDonald’s. She was able to grab a purse and a soda cup, along with a big box of food during the 30 minutes she was inside.
McDonald’s Szechuan Sauce Snafu - When fans of the TV show “Rick and Morty” demanded the return of the Szechuan Sauce that had originally been released with the movie “Mulan” in 1998, the folks at the Golden Arches came through. But they only planned a one-day extremely-limited release on October 7, with only 20 packets at each participating store. Fans were not happy and the cops were even called in to deal with crowds at one restaurant.
