McDonald's Corporation - They Consider THAT Stealing?
Something I Read While Waiting in the Drive Thru
This evening after Baby Clutzy's swimming lessons, we headed to McDonalds to get her some "Chicken Nuggets, french fries and soda," as she says. While I was waiting for the cashier in the drive thru to punch in my order, I had a few seconds to look at a sign that had been posted at some point in the last week (that's how often I'm there). It listed three things that were considered stealing--I guess by management.
1). Opening Happy Meal toys: Ok, I can see that
2). Getting a fountain drink without manager permission: Once again, understandable although most places I've seen allow unlimited drinks to their employees during their shift.
3). Taking waste food: Wait, WHAT?!
That's right; they consider taking food that would likely be thrown out to be stealing. I can understand perhaps if they take all the unused food to a homeless shelter at the end of the day, but I've never heard of a McDonalds doing this.
Maybe this is standard, but I'm thinking that if they're paying these employees such lousy wages, the least they can do is allow them to take a cold hamburger home at the end of the shift. Heaven knows the paying customers sure don't want it.
