Barefoot Baby Ejected From Burger King
And other crazy BK stories
I’m not huge about eating in fast food restaurants. I may be huge because I eat fast food a bit too often, but that’s another story. If it’s a hot day and their air conditioning works, I’ll welcome the brief respite. Otherwise, count me out. Sickening decor, tables that aren’t clean, furniture that is uncomfortable, parents abusing their children and mentally handicapped day trippers insisting you play peek-a-boo with them do not make for a tolerable dining experience.
I’ve had experiences like that in a variety of chain restaurants, including Burger King. However, I’ve never encountered a situation like what went down in a Missouri Burger King. A barefoot baby in Burger King was ejected, family and all. The adorably barefoot six-month-old was a code violation that the store’s manager wouldn’t let go. From reports, he even threatened to call the police.
Which brings me to the main thing I don’t like about fast food restaurants
That would be the level of service (or lack thereof). Sure, I understand that the people working there aren’t paid very well for what is a dirty, exhausting job. But don’t people have pride anymore? Wherever you’re working, why not make the best of it and give it your all for as long as you’re there. If you don’t like your job, look for another one on your own time. If you have to go back to school to make that happen, then by all means do so. If you need a little financial boost to pay for books, payday loans with no faxing and short term loans are available.
The Burger King manager who threatened to call the cops on a six-month-old baby is at best customer service-challenged, at worst a malicious moron who smacks his lips at the power he has to deny service to patrons. Either way, he’s bad for business and Burger King has taken instructive action with the manager and staff regarding the “no shoes” policy.
I’m not the only one who thinks this
Amanda blogs at Baby Bangs that this had her and her husband laughing to tears. I find it funny as well, but the level of incompetence on the part of the manager also disturbs me.
Amanda then goes on to tell a little story that any parent of young children (myself included) has experienced. They were meeting grandma for lunch at a restaurant when they noticed that their very young son had managed to kick off his shoes as he was being buckled into his car seat back home. I’ve been there many times, particularly with my son, who is two years old. Yet this didn’t stop them from enjoying their lunch – and the wait staff didn’t have a cow over a small youngster without shoes.
That’s the way it should be. Considering that an infant isn’t walking around on those bare feet, they aren’t picking up those germs on the ground that the Burger King manager was surely worried would knock the fifth star off their restaurant rating. Of course, they could use payday loans with no faxing and short term loans to bribe the inspector – but I would NEVER condone such a thing. I also wouldn’t tell them that they can apply here.
What is the Burger King teaching these people?
Speaking of barefoot and Burger King, one store thought it would be a good idea to bring its employees together for a team-building exercise. I’m not talking about a softball game or three-legged relay race. I’m talking about taking off their shoes and walking on red hot coals.
Yes, the soles of BK staffers were sorely burned that day. Management’s goal was to inspire workers to “see that they could reach beyond their limits and achieve the impossible.” At least 12 of the staff members discovered was that it was impossible for them to avoid hospital treatment for first- and second-degree burns. Considering the sensitive place they suffered their burns, the employees were limited to wheelchairs for some time.
They even get barefoot robbers at Burger King
Perhaps his lordship the Burger King could stand to supplement his security detail with a few more knights and knaves. What with an armed and barefoot cross-dressing criminal holding up a New Orleans BK store, I think the King needs to marshal his forces.
Yes, a man in a floral dress, wig and no shoes drove up to the drive-through window, climbed in through the window and robbed the store. He then climbed back out the drive-through window, got into his truck and drove away.
Authorities reported later that the man was a “genuine” cross dresser because his nails were painted, his wig was “well-made” and his necklace matched the dress he was wearing. Because it’s important to coordinate when you rob. Oddly enough, the same spokesman said the perpetrator was “pretty.”
Can’t get enough of your love, babe
So what have we learned here? Barefoot and Burger King don’t mix. But if you’re a little baby, you’re safe. However, you’re also probably not reading this payday loans with no faxing and short term loans blog if you’re an infant, either.
