Notorious Former NFL Quarterback "Ron Mexico" Apparently Works At Chick-fil-a

For those of you who are not aware, there is a certain incarcerated former NFL quarterback who was accused of using the name “Ron Mexico” when visiting medical clinics to get treatment for genital herpes. He’s since been sent to federal prison for his involvement in a dog fighting ring — but it seems that his alias is passing the time working at Chick-fil-a.

After the typical excellent service, my wife paid at the cashier with her check card. She got a copy of the receipt so that she could write the amount down in the check register when we got home. After writing down the amount, she noticed something odd about who checked us out at the register…. it was Ron Mexico. Since we live South of Atlanta, we’re all too familiar with the Ron Mexico name: it is the alias that former Falcons quarterback, Michael Vick, would use when traveling. Since I’m pretty sure Michael Vick isn’t back in the Atlanta area, this is probably just a Chic-fil-a employee having a little too much fun in their spare time. We’ll definitely bring it to the attention of the local store manager, but we thought that Consumerist readers may find it amusing.

Hey, what if that guy’s name really is “Ron Mexico”? Wouldn’t that be sad?
