Flashing A Gun To Get A Job Application At McDonald’s Won’t Make You An Ideal Choice

Without a doubt, if you really want to get a job, you should employ your full arsenal — of professional experience, pleasing people manners and other ideal qualities. And not, as one man allegedly did, employ your actual arsenal with real weapons.

Police in Norfolk, Va. say a man who wanted to get a job at McDonald’s flashed a gun at workers in his attempt to get hired, reports WAVY.com.

According to the report, the 31-year-old man walked into a McDonald’s and asked a manager for an application. So far, so good! But when the manager told him that they only had applications online, and clarified that policy a second time, that’s when police say he allegedly lifted his shirt to show the gun he had stowed in his waistband.

The manager remained calm, cool and collected, it seems, inviting the man to take a seat while she went to fetch a paper application. Instead, she called the police.

When officers arrived the would-be applicant was sitting at a table and was arrested, and charged with the misdemeanors of brandishing a firearm, carrying a concealed weapon and disorderly conduct.

Yes, it can be hard to get a job. But it’s harder to get a job if you’re demanding things with a gun.
