I've never been a big fan of Burger King's food. I think it's garbage. Angry Husband was a big fan when I met him. Really, it was the only fast food restaurant that they had at the Marine base that he was stationed at. He ate there A LOT.
I just happened to catch this article on one of my parenting forums about a mom and her six month old baby. Apparently the baby's toes caused a "health hazard". The woman was asked to put shoes on her baby. She was there with a church group. Umm yea, Angry Toddler would not and did not wear shoes at that age. He would barely keep on socks. That is ridiculous.
Can we get some common sense? Oh yea, I guess they don't teach that anymore? Did they ever teach it?
I was telling my husband about this at the dinner table. Well actually, I was sitting on Twitter while he was painting his models. He asked me if I heard about the one-armed man and Burger King? I said, WHAT?
So of course, I had to do some online searching...
In June, a man went into a Florida Burger King and ordered a Whopper. He asked the employee if they could cut the burger in half. The employee got the manager involved. They told him that they could not cut the burger. The man (customer) only has ONE ARM.
Here is the article.
I understand that its fast food and they follow certain standards. But asking a mother of an infant to put shoes on her child and a simple request from a handicapped man? SERIOUSLY~
I'm glad that I loathe Burger King. We stopped eating there years ago when Angry Husband got pretty sick from eating something there. He vowed to never eat there again.
