An angry Sonic customer in Troy is in big trouble for allegedly stealing a couple dollars.
You haven't been alive in America if a fast food restaurant hasn't gotten your order wrong at least once. Fast food workers, just like us, are only human. Mistakes are made. In the grand scheme of things, these mistakes are so small and unimportant. However, customers seem to have a bizarre entitlement these days that leads to fast food rage.
A 20-year-old Detroit woman is being accused of stealing from a Troy Sonic Drive-In restaurant on Saturday, Feb. 6th, after her displeasure with her order according to a police report obtained by The Oakland Press,
A passenger exited the vehicle, walked up to the drive-thru window, opened the window doors, reached inside, and stole $2.27 that was on the restaurant’s counter nearby.
If I were to steal an extra ketchup packet I'm probably going to get the heck out of dodge. But not this person. After the suspect allegedly stole the $2.27 she went back to her car and the driver parked in the Sonic parking lot.
The police arrived and questioned the suspect and the Sonic staff. The young suspect denied stealing money but said she may have knocked money off of the counter when the reached into the drive-thru window. That leads to the question, why were you reaching into the drive-thru window?
The 20-year-old was charged with larceny in a building. All of this over less than $3? Come on people. We can do better than this.
