Wrong Order Gets McDonald's Workers a Bullet Through the Window

Michigan woman left cell phone that let police track her down

In case workers at McDonald's thought they could avoid paying attention during their shifts, a new saying might change their minds: Mess up my order once, shame on you; mess up my order twice and you'd better duck. And not because someone is going to yell at you.

Shaneka Monique Torres, 29, allegedly shot through a drive-through window at a Grand Rapids, Mich. McDonald's, according to the Detroit Free Press. The reason wasn't fury at an ex-boss or revenge for a love affair gone wrong. The location reportedly had messed up an order two times running. Luckily, no one was hurt. The event started Sunday evening when a car with two women pulled up to the drive-through window. Torres was the passenger. The women placed an order, pulled out, and then realized that a burger was missing bacon.

Torres complained about the order. She was told that they could come back later and get a free order as a replacement. The two left and returned at 3AM Monday morning, according to WXMI-TV. They got their free replacement order and then realized that, again, someone had left bacon off a burger.


Saying that Torres was displeased would be putting it mildly. She allegedly exited the car, yelled at the people, pulled out a gun, and fired one shot that went through the drive-through window and out the other side of the building, according to WOOD-TV. At first, no one working there realized what happened. It sounded to them like a coffee pot had burst. The car pulled away and the driver brought Torres home.

Unfortunately for Torres, she reportedly had left her cell phone number during the previous visit so the manager could call her. The police used the information to locate her home and allegedly arrest her on multiple gun charges. According to WOOD, police also recovered some food.

WXMI reported that Torres is currently being held on a $50,000 bond. She also reportedly also had a bench warrant for not having paid fines for driving with a suspended license. Torres is due back in court on February 21.

According to WZZM-TV, the driver was not involved in the shooting and cooperated with authorities.

Call it yet another problem that can creep up when you try to bring home the bacon.

Multiple gun charges and a bench warrant for not paying fines on suspended license. Sounds like at least two mistakes. More serious than no bacon. Should pot shots be taken at her?

In the case of the Michigan gun shooting at Mcdonalds----I absolutely don't agree with pulling a weapon on anyone for something as ridiculous as this, however; THESE ARE THE PEOPLE WHO WANTED $15/HR IN WAGES??? This is not an unusual case---every where around the US, burger chains..taco chains, etc; you name it, every day someone is not getting what they ordered in one way or another; and again; they want $15/hr???? Why do these people THINK they deserve that kind of money when they can't get orders right?. Fast food restaurants are made for high school students to earn some money, housewives to earn some extra money to help support their families, so to think they want $15/hr is not feasible, not to mention the prices of value meals and such would at least double, then the profits starts to drastically fall because less and less people want to spend $10-$12 for a cheeseburger meal, now it's layoff time for some employees and possible closing of the restaurant itself. I don't know if this will ever change as far as getting orders right, but if you a persistent problem with a particular chain, call their corporate headquarters and complain to them; don't use violence as a means to and end!!

I would never do that. But to be honest I can understand it. These workers who never get an order right are the same one that want to double minimum wage.

of course you aren't a bigot. It's always the other person. Take a good look in the mirror. Go play your "race card" some other place.
