Freaks in the Fast Food World

My stomach is turning while watching ABC's 20/20. How STUPID can people be? The short of it is (you can read the complete story), an assistant manager of a Mount Washington, Kentucky McDonald's received a phone call from a man stating to be a law enforcement official. The caller said an employee at the restaurant had stolen a purse and the employee needed to be contained in the office until the police arrived.

In the meantime, the caller instructed the assistant manager to make the young employee (18 years old; technically an adult but YOUNG!) remove all of her clothing. Fast forward - the caller instructed the assistant manager to bring in her boyfriend (some big, fat old guy) to watch the young employee. The sickos (the caller and the big, fat old boyfriend) have the employee do jumping jacks naked, spanks her for at least 10 minutes and has her perform oral sex. This poor girl was contained for two hours. If it weren't caught on the security camera, no one would probably believe the story.

Turns out, incidents like this happened throughout the country. Other fast food restaurants received calls and managers acted on the caller's instructions, which included strip searching employees and in one reported case, performing a cavity search on a patron! Gives a whole new meaning to, "You want fries with that?"

Once again I ask, what kind of freaks are out there who think this is acceptable behavior???? I'm not just referring to the caller, but the mindless fast food managers who only see black and white. The McDonald's Employee Manual has a page basically stating no employee will be strip searched by any McDonald's staff member or law enforcement official.

The whiner Mount Washington former-assistant manager says she didn't know that was in the manual. It's probably because she can't read. I just CANNOT believe she's on 20/20. If she thought she'd be defending herself, she's only making herself look more like an idiot than an innocent victim.

Having spent about five years working in fast food, I've worked with some pretty dim-lit managers, but none of them would have fallen for this sick hoax.
