Using a drive-thru is pretty simple: Drive up to the order window, make your order, pay and pick up your food. But the first part of those instructions -- the driving part -- is key. A U.K. woman from Greater Manchester was denied drive-thru rights at a local McDonald's when she rolled up not in a car but on a horse.
Not one to be deterred, apparently, she then brought the horse inside the restaurant. And... it defecated on the floor.
The Facebook page from the Greater Manchester police, Whitefield division explains the incident:
On Saturday the 20th of July Police from Whitefield received a call from McDonald's on Fountain Place regarding a woman on horse using the Drive Thru.
The staff refused to serve the women due to company policy. The women then took the horse into the restaurant who ended up doing his business on the floor.
The sight & smell of this caused obvious distress and upset to customers trying to eat, as well as staff members.
Officers arrived at the location and woman was issued a Fixed Penalty notice for causing alarm & distress to other customers and staff.
