Horse in McDonald's: Rider fined after 'drive-thru' refusal

BBC News - Horse in McDonald's: Rider fined after 'drive-thru' refusal

Quote:
Police said the woman, who has not been named, was in the saddle when she was initially turned away from the drive-through kiosk on Bury New Road.

The woman then led the animal inside, where it "ended up doing his business on the floor", a Greater Manchester Police (GMP) spokesman said.
When the Horse has to go the Horse has to go...

If I was the manager of that McDonald's, I would have run outside with a camera and snapped pics of the horse and rider being served at my drive-thru. Free publicity.

That is funny. I go through the window on my scooter at BK. No problem. I have even walked through when there was no traffic to contend with. I have no problem getting served. Just a lot of strange looks. But always "Service with a smile."

I've walked, rode a bike and a horse up to drive-thrus...never had a problem. The bank does insist on an ID for me, not the horse.

Well it is called a "Drive Thru" not a "Ride Thru".

The Manager of that McD's was a jerk.

Don't know how to soften it.

Take the order from a customer and move on.

He/She learned by having to clean up the equestrian gift left behind.


I've seen worse many, many, many years ago.

I was in a Mc. D's very late at night and couldn't figure out what to order.

I saw some spaghetti on the counter and thought that sounded good.

Until I realized that Mc. D's Didn't sell spaghetti.

A few years ago, we flew to a niece's wedding. Whatever could possibly go wrong during the whole trip, did. The whole thing was a comedy of errors, wish I'd written it all down. Anyway, DH and I walked his very drunk brother away from the reception at the request of just about everyone else there, and we walked him through a McDonald's drive-thru on the way back to the hotel. Even though the restaurant was closed, the drive-thru was still open. We just wanted to get BIL some french fries to try and help sober him up. They refused to serve us since we weren't in a car. Turns out that was a good thing, BIL was on Alli, a diet med, that when paired with a fat, would have caused significant, um, digestive problems.
