Wendy’s employee shot over dipping sauce

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, logging is the most dangerous job in America, followed by fishing. One job that doesn’t make the list but should is working in a fast food restaurant.

Wendy’s employee shot over dipping sauce

In 2018 a McDonald’s manager was punched and choked by an irate customer who wanted ketchup. In 2015, a 16-year-old McDonald’s employee was violently pulled through the drive-thru window and beaten.

Sometimes, the job proves deadly. Earlier this year, a Burger King worker was shot to death over the length of time it took for a drive-thru food order to be completed.

The most recent shooting of a fast food restaurant employee wasn’t deadly, though that’s not for lack of trying.

So what was the reason that a 31-year-old male worker at a Wendy’s was wounded in the torso and arm? The two-word answer is “dipping sauce.” According to Fox St. Louis affiliate KTVI, the shooting occurred at about 1 a.m. last Tuesday. The injured man told police he had gotten into an argument with a customer while manning the drive-thru window. (Working the drive-thru line seems to be an especially dangerous job.)

… [W]orkers at the resturaunt told FOX 2 the male suspect asked for extra dipping sauce with his order and when he didn’t get what he wanted, he shot into the store.

The worker is reported to be in stable condition.

LA Students to be FORCED to take COVID-19 Vaccine if they want to return to school…

LA Students to be FORCED to take COVID-19 Vaccine if they want to return to school…

Once COVID-19 vaccines are available to children, Los Angeles students will have to be immunized before they can return to campus, Supt. Austin Beutner said Monday.

Beutner however, did not suggest that campuses remain closed until then. Instead, he said, the state should set standards for reopening all schools, clearly justify the directives, and then require campuses to open when the standards are achieved.

A COVID-19 vaccine requirement would be “no different than students who are vaccinated for measles or mumps,” Beutner said in a pre-recorded briefing. He also compared students, staff and others getting a COVID-19 vaccine to those who “are tested for tuberculosis before they come on campus. That’s the best way we know to keep all on a campus safe.”

But a vaccine will not be in the arms of students for some time. The two vaccines that have received emergency use authorization from the Food and Drug Administration so far were tested almost exclusively in adults. The clinical trial of the shot made by Pfizer and BioNTech included 153 16- and 17-year-olds, and some of the experts who reviewed the data for the FDA said there weren’t enough teens to determine whether the vaccine is safe for that age group, let alone for younger children.
