Woman To Wendy’s Employee: You’re Fired

Police are searching for a Euclid, Ohio woman who became upset when her Wendy’s drive-thru order took to long. The customer remained calm before firing three shots at the building.

A woman trying to order Wendy’s in the drive-thru began shooting when the fast food chain took “too long,” police in Ohio said.

A uniformed Euclid officer in a marked police car was working on off-duty assignment behind the Wendy’s restaurant late Friday, Dec. 3 when she heard three to four “very close distinct gun shots,” according to a police report obtained by McClatchy News.

“From our understanding, she was upset with her order,” Euclid Police Chief Scott Meyer told WJW. “She felt it was taking too long and she had some choice words for the staff … The manager heard her swearing at the staff members. He then told her she would not be served and to leave the lane. She was upset with that and she then fired three rounds.”

I may have mentioned this before, but when we were returning from Erik’s visit to Alderson Broaddus, we stopped at a Wendy’s near Harrisburg. We got our order quickly, but the fries took about fifteen minutes. Not once did it occur to me to start firing shots, but then again, I’m not a psychopath… usually.

Meet Joshua James of Jupiter, Florida.

Joshua is an impatient man, and while he enjoys his fast food, he does not enjoy waiting in the drive-thru. In fact, Joshua brings backup when the cashiers take a little too long with his order. In this case, the backup would be an alligator.

A Jupiter, Florida, man was arrested for throwing a live alligator into a Wendy’s restaurant drive-through east of Loxahatchee.

Officials with Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission told WPTV that James pulled up for his order, and after a server handed a drink and turned around, James tossed the 3 1/2-foot gator into the drive-through window.

Joshua James, 23, was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, illegally killing, possessing or capturing an alligator, and second-degree larceny petit theft. WPTV reports that the incident occurred in October, but James had only been arrested recently by U.S. marshals.

Ironically, the gator was hired and later promoted to assistant to the regional manager.
