A lesson learned

Taco Bell employee faces charges for allegedly spitting in customers drink

STAFFORD VIRGINIA - An employee at a Taco Bell is facing charges after she spat in a customer's drink.

Shaleesheya Ford, 18, was fired from her job and is charged with adulteration of food, obstruction of justice and making a false report.
Police say the incident happened April 14 at a Taco Bell along Garrisonville Road when a customer couldn't get some tea. The 35-year-old victim says it happened after he complained at the drive thru that he didn't get the drink he ordered.
When he received the drink he took the lid off to take a sip and that is when he saw a strange substance floating in the cup.
If Ford is convicted she could face up to 10 years in prison.


10 years!! whoa. that's some harsh punishment. the newsreels need to publicize this a bit more so that those who always wonder if people spit in their food can throw in the prison threat along with whatever insults/demands prompt them to think "they so are going to spit in my food/drink."

no way! 10 years? well, from the sound of her name she seems to be black...and african americans get worse sentences than white folks...but ten years? for spitting? well, if it has to happen i am glad that it happened at a taco bell so that i know people will think twice before spitting in my food.....

Shaleesheya.
Adulteration of food.

Two things I came away with after reading this article.

Interesting.

Also, I worked in restaurants. Send food back to the kitchen at your own risk.
