Adrian Peterson costs woman her job (temporarily)

When a McDonald’s assistant manager recently saw Vikings RB Adrian Peterson standing outside her drive-thru window at 3 a.m., asking to use the restaurant’s bathroom, she didn’t hesitate to let him in the doors. She also didn’t expect to get fired for the act.

Yet, according to the Consumerist (H/T to Pro Football Talk), that’s exactly what happened when her bosses discovered that she allowed a customer into the restaurant after hours (the drive-thru was still open).

"He's a public figure,” the woman said. “I know him better than some of the maintenance people that come in and out. I never thought in a million years that that decision was going to cost me my career."

Making matters worse for the fast-food chain was that the woman is a mother of three who (I imagine) is just trying to scratch out a living while working at McDonald’s for the past seven years. After the local media caught wind of the story, management gave her back her job.

So, a happy ending, I suppose.

But there is an important moral to the story: don’t ever let Adrian Peterson inside to use your bathroom.

The true story is the fact that he ordered a value meal but fumbled his soft drink and needed the rest room to clean himself up!  Oh and I just love how big corporations fire people under petty circumstances and when the media makes a stink about it they do the right thing, like firing a mother of three for being courteous to a person whom she could trust. If the media did not pick this story up this lady is still out of a job.  Makes me glad I don't eat at the Salmonella Golden Arches but I do love it when those fat asses order the extra large value meal and then have a diet coke to go with it.  I do hope that Peterson does hook her up in some way though.  That would be cool of him!
