McDonald's worker fired for putting too much topping on ice cream12/18/2012
Sarah Finch was fired by McDonald's for "gross misconduct." Did she get caught spitting in customers' sodas? Dropping burgers on the floor and then serving them? Uh, no. The 19-year-old's crime, at a Welsh branch of the chain, was apparently giving a fellow employee a generous portion of chocolate topping on her purchased ice cream. A McFlurry fury followed: Finch was fired for supposedly stealing food. Luckily, the teen had the common sense to realize how utterly ridiculous this was, and she took the grease-slingers to court for unfair dismissal. On Tuesday Finch got the last laugh, as she was awarded $4,866 compensation and a good job reference. [Source]
