Fight Against Maturity

File under “Really Dumb Court Decisions”

A Brazilian court ruled this week that McDonald’s must pay a former franchise manager $17,500 because he gained 65 pounds while working there for a dozen years.

The 32-year-old man said he felt forced to sample the food each day to ensure quality standards remained high, because McDonald’s hired “mystery clients” to randomly visit restaurants and report on the food, service and cleanliness.

The man also said the company offered free lunches to employees, adding to his caloric intake while on the job. His identity was not released.

Seriously? They stood over him with a gun and made him eat fatty foods? He had no responsibility for what (and how much) went into his mouth?
