I visited the 16th St McDonald's last night, and I was especially impressed by a woman at the cash register, named Manuela. There were four EXTREMELY rude people in front of me, and they treated Manuela horribly. Manuela had done nothing wrong, and in fact, was bending backwards to accommodate these people.

(One man was giving her trouble because the fruit didn't look fresh - it was fine, and had quite some time to go before it expired. Three girls were complaining about salt on their fries, and demanded their money back, and were just looking to start something.)

Throughout all of the harassment, Manuela was professional and courteous. When the girls left, they called her a bitch. So not appropriate. But, instead of lashing back, Manuela wished them a good night.

I hope that Manuela is recognized/rewarded for her professionalism and grace under difficult work conditions. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.
