A woman has been fined $500 for an aggressive tirade in a McDonald’s restaurant over the time it took to fulfil her order.
Footage posted to a local Facebook group showed a woman in an orange top yelling at staff behind the counter at McDonald’s in Kempsey, in the NSW Mid North Coast region, after they asked her to settle down on Wednesday evening.
“Twenty f**ing minutes ... Don’t tell me to f***ing settle when you can’t even cook a fresh f***ing meal,” the woman yells.
“Everyone here is fed up with this f***ing restaurant.”
A young child jumps up and down beside her before saying, “stop it, mum”.
Mid North Coast Police District said it had received reports the 28-year-old woman was aggressively abusing a number of staff, including teenage employees, over a dispute on the time it was taking for her order to be processed.
It’s alleged she used “extremely offensive and abusive language towards the employees”.
Police said the woman voluntarily attended Kempsey Police Station the following day after she was contacted by officers and “showed considerable remorse”.
The woman was fined for offensive behaviour which carries an on-the-spot fine of $500.
The management at Kempsey McDonald’s were advised of the outcome and continue to provide support to the staff involved.
