Over the weekend, a British woman and her daughter decided to swing through a McDonald’s in Whitefield, Greater Manchester after a long day of riding. The two ladies approached the giant screen atop their horses and fired off their orders. Unfortunately, store policy forbid the employees from serving horseback riders, and the goofy diversion from the drive-thru status quo quickly turned into a bitter and smelly mess.
According to The Mirror, the woman became so enraged by the denial of service, she brought the horse inside the restaurant, and the animal proceeded to defecate in the middle of the restaurant. Not surprisingly, that didn’t sit too well with the managers or the customers. Authorities were called to deal with the situation immediately, and upon arrival, they hit the unidentified horseback rider with a fixed penalty notice for “causing alarm and distress”. It’s unclear exactly what monetary figure that equals, but depending on how mad the woman was, she may still think her little stunt was worth it.
Refusing to serve a chick on a horse might seem like a pretty confusing decision, but large food corporations tend to have policies on every little issue in order to keep themselves from possible lawsuits. As such, McDonald’s technically forbids its employees from serving pedestrians, bike riders and horseback riders. The two former banned groups are supposed to keep their employees safe since someone could climb through the drive-thru windows, and the latter entry is there in case the horse gets spooked by the cars, takes off and causes injury to either the rider or someone in the parking lot.
I’m not one of those people who doesn’t get fast food. I like Wendy’s a whole lot better than McDonald’s, but I still logically understand why someone would want to pick up a Big Mac or better yet bacon, egg and cheese biscuit. That being said, I haven’t the slightest idea what compels people to actually eat inside of fast food restaurants. If I’m going to get fast food, I want to make the transaction and get to my house/ car as quickly as possible, not look for an uncomfortable seat in the cold awfulness that is the inside of those restaurants.
Over the years, numerous videos have gone around showing comedians/ magicians/ random people messing with drive thru employees. A lot of the footage is really funny, but honestly, none of it has ever topped the idea of a woman moseying in with a horse and having it literally shit where people are eating. No one inside that restaurant will ever forget what happened that day, nor should they.
