oops hit post before I could write the post LOL
I don't kow how many of you are aware of the situation but a young mother in our area was fired by McDonlads after 8 years of employment and it has caused a big cry of outrage.
Apparently shortly fighting a fire last week a group of firefighters came in to get breakfast. The girl paid for their food ( reports vary between $75 and $80) out of her own pocket. a short while later another group of fire fighters came in with a large order. She contacted the owener, and coperate offices to see if they would donate/comp the food and was told no so she and two other empployees pooled their money and paid for the food onc eagain. McDonalds is claiming that she swore at superiors, she is claiming that she only said "This is fricken rediculous". A lot of people in our area are very upset about her being fired.
The whole situation has gone viral. It has the news in Dallas and Philidalphia (I am sure other places I am not aware of), and talked about on Nacy Grace. We even have a meem about it now. Who would have thunk our little city would ever bee the focus of so much attention. I think the last time was back in 1974 when we had a school shooter.
The good news is, she has had several job offers which I think is great.
here is a link to one of the stories if your interested:
