I don't agree with McDonalds, however this woman needs to learn when you give a mouse a cookie, word gets around and they all want one.

My understanding is, that the volunteer dept begged for the food, not the city dept.

You are not allowed to grease the palms of public employees, period.

And constitutes some kind of greasing.

Did she give 'herself' her McDonalds discount on their entire ticket? That would get you fired.

This is how i here it, she wanted to help out, paid for the first order herself out of her pocket. She is going to school, working two jobs, and raising a family. The second order gets called in and she askes her boss, the boss said no, she then asked her bosses boss. The answer was still no. The employee'. Gathered money from there own pockets and paid for the second order. This lady gets in trouble for asking the boss getting the other one in trouble. Someone good doing something for someone in need. Remember how cold it was that night? Have you ever experience . A house fire? Shame on McDonalds. Dont go there. I have seen on several occasions OPD chief get free morning food!

She was fired for insubordination, not for paying for the food, they are saying she swore at a supervisor and hung up the phone. She claims her words were this is freaking ridiculous, they must think she used a different F word.

I work for McDonalds and have for years. If you actually read the story and not just the headlines it says she got fired for cursing the supervisor, ofcourse she claims she said freaking and not f:cking. I hope she doesnt get a penny when she trys to sue. McDonalds should sue her!

Well i say McDonald' s Lost, were do you find a employee that will stay at a place like that, working with incompantant people, and dealing with rude customers. Its hard to get a order of fries correct there. Im not saying all workers there are incompantant, anywere you go its hard to find someone who cares about there job, no matter what it is. And as a employer, it will be a long time before she will be replaced. Good luck with your family, your nursing schooling, and you trulely are a good person. Move on.
