You Can Have it Your Way at Burger King

Unless of course you Baby doesn't wear shoes.

Burger King: No shoes rule taken too far with baby

Associated Press Writer

SUNSET HILLS, Mo. (AP) - Like most restaurants, the Burger King in this St. Louis suburb has a no shoes, no shirt, no service policy. And baby, do they enforce it. Too much so, the company admitted, after apologizing for restaurant workers who asked a mother to leave because her 6-month-old wasn't wearing shoes.

Jennifer Frederich, her mother and Frederich's infant daughter, Kaylin, stopped at the Burger King in Sunset Hills on Sunday. The baby was shoeless _ Frederich figured tiny baby feet were immune from the rule.

But workers told the family to leave because the shoeless baby was violating a health code. In fact, shoelessness is not a health code violation in St. Louis County.

Ah the joy of dealing with power-hungry minuiam wage workers or maybe they were just nit-wits or having a bad hair day or I guess they could have been just trying to follow the "rules" exactly.

First the creepy King commercials and now this...not a good year for BK.

At least Burger King was smart enough to recognize that they had a problem here and apologized. Hopefully the workers were canned too. But don't worry about them, I'm sure they are now working at Taco Bell or McDonald's.....those places are even grosser than Burger King.
