Have you ever thought about riding your horse to the McDonald’s drive-thru? Last Saturday a woman didn’t just think about it – she did it. But when she and her daughter showed up around lunch time on horseback at the drive-thru in Whitefield, England, they were both turned away.
That’s when things got ugly. Denied at the drive-thru, the woman led her horse inside the restaurant, where the animal promptly defecated on the floor. The staff called the police, and the woman was fined, as the Mirror News reports. “The sight & smell of this caused obvious distress and upset to customers trying to eat, as well as staff members,” the Whitefield division of the Greater Manchester Police noted in a Facebook post.
McDonald’s said in a statement reported by the BBC, “The health and safety of our customers and staff is our top priority, and for this reason we are unable to serve pedestrians, bicycle riders or customers on horseback through the drive-thru,”
Note to self: next time, take the car.
