Woman Denied Service at McD's for using feet

Denied service for using her feet, woman says.

DRIVE-THRU DEBACLE | Says McDonald's workers balked at tiny hands, short arms

In a lifetime of using her feet the way most people use their hands, Dawn Larson never felt as discriminated against as she did at McDonald's, she said.

Born with Holt-Oram Syndrome, Larson has diminutive hands about six inches from her shoulder.

On Nov. 3, Larson pulled up to the speaker at a McDonald's in Rockford and ordered food for her and her boys totaling $23.59. She drove to the first window and passed them her credit card, gripped with the toes of her left foot. The cashier took the card, processed her payment and handed the card back to her.

When Larson pulled up to the second window to get her food, an employee said "with a tone of disgust and repulsion," "What's the matter with you? . . . You ain't got no arms. ... Let me see your arms," and drew back the bags of food from Larson's outstretched foot. - Chicago Sun Times

At such a thoughtless comment, I would have retorted with something like, "What's the matter, you ain't got no brains? And the crime of it is that those with disabilities are being shoved off of SSDI/SSI and admonished to "go get an education, go get a job"....when this is the kind of discrimination and prejudice encountered.

Congrats bro Jacqueline S. Homan you got PERTAMAX...! hehehehe...
