A McDonald’s worker in Virginia who refused to serve uniformed police officer was fired after the officer’s wife wrote about the incident on Facebook.
When Scott Naff, 25-year law enforcement veteran of Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, stopped at a local McDonald’s to grab a bite to eat during his 13-hour shift last Thursday, he was taken aback by a drive-thru employee who told him, “I ain’t serving no cop.” The worker who refused to give Officer Naff his food has now paid a steep price, as his boss had the perfect reply to his insolence.
Cathy, Naff’s wife told the newspaper that the employee saw the uniform and told her husband: “I ain’t serving no police.”
She posted the incident on her Facebook page to inform her close friends about the incident, and the story went viral, the report said.
“The young man who was working that window looked at him and backed away from the window mouthing something to my husband. My husband couldn’t hear him since the window was closed,” the officer’s wife wrote on Facebook.
“The guy finally walked to the window and slid it open. My husband told him that he couldn’t hear him and the guy said ‘I ain’t serving no police’ and closed the window. The guy proceeded to tell everyone in McDonald’s, including the manager, that he was not going to serve the police.”
Cathy said it was not her husband’s intention to cost someone their job, but she wanted to bring to light what police officers go through while interacting with the public. Cathy updated her Facebook status to say a manager at the McDonald’s had told her and Scott the employee in question had been let go.
“My husband is one of the great guys and would have never treated this young man disrespectfully,” Cathy said.
