A female employee of a McDonald's restaurant in the Dutch town of Lemmer was fired with immediate effect in March 2009 because she added a cheese slice to a colleague's hamburger. McDonald's claimed that by adding the cheese slice, the hamburger was no longer a hamburger but rather a cheeseburger, which is more expensive. The regular price of a hamburger in the Netherlands is 1.75 euro (2.47 USD) while a cheeseburger costs 1.95 euro (2.75 USD).

What would have happened if she had taken a cheese slice OFF a cheeseburger - would she have been fired for charging too much?

The moral of this story: if at all possible, don't work for McDonalds.
