The woman was about to order her lunch at a MacDonald's restaurant in the Swedish city of Karlstad, when the employee about to take her order bent down behind the counter, revealing a thong. The costumer was appalled and has now lodged a complaint against the fast food restaurant.
The Swedish FDA (Food and Drug Administration) who recieved the complaint say they have never encountered anything like this. "[What type of underwear one wears] is a matter of preference, I can't see how this could be a matter of hygiene" says FDA inspector Lena Bergman-Bokvist. She has never before heard of a complaint like this.
MacDonald's Sweden apologize for the incident.
Susanna Hörnfeldt, spokesperson for MacDonald's Sweden says they have strickt rules for dresses and trousers worn by their employees. They even have rules for shirts and how many buttons are allowed to be open - which is one. They have never before recieved a complaint about any aspect of their dress code.
Admittedly, the chain does not have specific rules regarding the underwear of their staff.
See people? The only way to go is naked! There's nothing but trouble when you wear underwear! I say let's fry the fries and burn the burgers the way mother nature intended!
