Okay, Adrian Peterson didn’t mean to get the McDonald’s employee fired. McDonald’s fired her because she let Peterson inside at 3:00 a.m. to use the bathroom. The drive-through was open but the restaurant was apparently closed. And that’s a no-no.
Here’s what happened:
“While working the late-night drive-thru shift at 3 a.m., a female employee encountered a man standing outside the window who asked to come inside and use the restroom. After a little while, she realized it was the popular Minnesota Vikings star and opened the door for him to come inside and use the facilities.”
I’m not sure what is more disturbing: that this poor woman had to work by herself at 3:00 a.m. or that Adrian Peterson has nowhere else to go at that time of the morning to use the bathroom except a McDonald’s.
It all comes out with a happy ending, though. The woman got her job back after word got out about what happened. The woman, for her part, said, “He’s a public figure… I know him better than some of the maintenance people that come in and out.”
Well, not really. But still. I doubt Adrian Peterson would let her into the locker room for a bathroom break during a Vikings game.
