While it may not be as egregious as the Domino’s Pizza employees who videotaped themselves desecrating their work kitchen, a Burger King employee in Michigan is in hot water after blabbing on Facebook about spitting in the food.
The 21-year-old genius wrote on Facebook that people should stay away from the Detroit-area BK he works at because “we spit in your food for sh*ts and giggles.”
Not surprisingly, the company that operates that particular franchise is taking it seriously.
“The employee has told the Police Department and our company that this was only a joke and he did not jeopardize our procedures,” said Bill Angott, president of TEAM Schostak Family Restaurants, which operates 59 Michigan BKs. “We will continue to support the local authorities in the ongoing investigation.”
The brother of the alleged Facebooking food-spitter thinks it’s all much ado about nothing:
I’m guessing it’s cause he was really stressed out, having a bad day at work… I think he’s more scared, he’s worried about what’s going to happen to him, he don’t wanna lose his job.
