Odd Salty Burger

Here’s an example of a situation where everyone did the wrong thing:

A McDonald’s employee spent a night in jail and is facing criminal charges because a police officer’s burger was too salty, so salty that he says it made him sick….

Bull, 20, said she accidentally spilled salt on hamburger meat and told her supervisor and a co-worker, who “tried to thump the salt off.”

On her break, she ate a burger made with the salty meat. “It didn’t make me sick,” Bull told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

But then Police Officer Wendell Adams got a burger made with the oversalted meat, and he returned a short time later and told the manager it made him sick.

Bull admitted spilling salt on the meat, and Adams took her outside and questioned her, she said.

City public information officer George Louth said Bull was charged because she served the burger “without regards to the well-being of anyone who might consume it.”

The McDonald’s folks should have thrown out the meat. Yes, I know, that costs money and that’s a sad story. Officer Adams shouldn’t have eaten the burger, he certainly shouldn’t have come back to the restaurant to throw his weight around. And whoever made the decision to charge Bull with a crime needs to come back down to reality.
