Hard to believe, but fast food franchises like the Wendy’s in Greenville, Michigan apparently frown upon having human beings take baths in their restaurant’s sinks. Even if it is a bubble bath.
This is a lesson some employees of said Wendy’s in Greenville found out the hard way when they were all fired, according to the Mirror.
The video was originally posted to TikTok and then went further viral when it was reuploaded to Facebook with the caption, “So yeah I’m just gonna tell everyone right now DONT NOT GO TO THE GREENVILLE WENDYS. THIS IS DISGUSTING PLEASEEEEEE SHARE THIS.”
In the video, after one employee wearing a Wendy’s uniform tells the person in the sink to “wash yourself,” he responds, “It feels like, it feels like a hot tub. I’m just enjoying life.”
Christian Camp, vice president of human resources for Team Schostak, the owner of this particular Wendy’s, told the Greenville Daily News, “We take it very, very seriously. We have already taken the proper steps to make sure something like this never happens again,” he said. “As soon as we learned of it, which was this morning, we quickly got into action and approached every person that was involved. We’ve been looking into the matter all day, trying to find out what happened because we want to make sure that we are safe for our employees, and obviously our guests, so we take this matter extremely seriously. We’ve taken the appropriate steps to make sure this doesn’t happen again.”
Camp added, “We’ve taken to the appropriate steps. We’ve looked at everything that was involved in the said incident to make sure everything is clean — per state regulations, at a minimum — but we try to go as far and above as we can.”
One of those appropriate steps, Camp told Newsweek, was the firing of the guy who was “just enjoying life.”
Kids… am I right?
Dear God, I hope he was wearing shorts.
“The bottom line is, we don’t want anything to make our guests feel that they can’t eat at any Wendy’s restaurant, or any other of our restaurants,” said Camp.
The restaurant is currently open, despite the bad press. I assume after a very good scrubbing.
