We’ve certainly read our fair share of stories about impromptu food fights brought on by angry customers and/or irritable employees, but usually the parties involved are somewhat contrite afterward. However, one woman in Ohio is outraged that she was banned from her area McDonald’s eateries after she tossed her sandwich at a store staffer.
The incident occurred last week at a drive-thru window in Chillicothe, Ohio, when the customer got upset about the quality of a chicken sandwich.
It was supposed to have been grilled (she got a fried one) and rather than the bacon and cheese that had been ordered, she tells WBNS-TV, “It had a dab of mayonnaise on it, rotten lettuce.”
Then she claims she was treated rudely by the employee, who took back the sandwich and subsequently gave her one with the proper condiments but still with fried chicken.
“I threw the sandwich back at her through the drive-thru window and I demanded a refund,” says the customer, who apparently thought it was a good idea to go on her local news station to give her side of the this story. “She would have never gotten the sandwich thrown at her if she would have just been polite about the matter.”
The McDonald’s workers contacted the police. In the end, no charges were pressed, but the customer was barred from entering any McDonald’s in the area.
“I threw a sandwich and it didn’t even hit the worker,” Corey said. “Why would I be banned from McDonald’s? It’s wrong.”
We don’t know what this woman does for a living, but we’re pretty sure she wouldn’t like having something she’d goofed on thrown at her by an angry customer.
