That is fast food! New York woman who has been in McDonald & # 39; s restaurant for 34 minutes & # 39; EVICTED & # 39; because the fast chain has a time limit of half an hour for customers who dine
- Jane Malin says she was & # 39; turned off & # 39; at a McDonald's in Little Falls, New York
- Malin drank her drink when the staff approached and asked her to leave
- She thought the staff were joking, but when she realized it was serious, she felt & # 39; offended and ashamed & # 39;
- A representative of the Little Falls McDonald & # 39; s refused to explain the time limit
A New York woman says she was asked to leave a McDonald & # 39; s restaurant in New York after the staff had enforced a policy that limits dinner customers to a 30-minute time limit.
Jane Malin from Little Falls and some friends enjoyed a meal after Sunday Mass at their local chain when they were allegedly kicked by employees.
In a Facebook message that is shared on Monday, Malin explains the quick meeting.
& # 39; In more than 60 years, I have never been thrown out of a public restaurant until yesterday. The local Little Falls, NY, McDonald & # 39; s has a new policy to deport customers after 30 minutes. & # 39;
Jane Malin and a group of customers were kicked out of a Little Falls McDonald's after 34 minutes because the fast food chain imposed a time limit of 30 minutes
& # 39; Three of us having coffee and lunch after Sunday Mass were asked to leave the restaurant after 34 minutes. Another table with 4 women was also set out. The dining room was basically tidy. & # 39;
Malin called the experience & # 39; offensive & # 39 ;, & # 39; shameful & # 39; and & # 39; ridiculous & # 39 ;.
Initially, however, Malin was joking.
It is unclear whether the 30-minute policy has been set by McDonald & # 39; s company or individual restaurant owners
She said Syracuse.com: & # 39; We were just finishing our lunch. I still drank my big iced tea and my friend waited for her coffee to cool down. & # 39;
& # 39; The employee was very polite and we left, but we couldn't believe it. I go there four to five times a week for a number of years, and often after mass on Sunday we go for lunch and catch up, & she said.
She reportedly told Syracuse.com that she believes they should be timed, & # 39; because they arrived at 12.08 pm and asked to leave at 12.42 pm. & # 39;
WKTV reports that the Facebook post gathered nearly 1,000 shares and users were divided in the comments about McDonald's quick approach.
WKTV reported a commentator who said: & # 39; They have a big problem with children hanging out there and not buying stuff and going on their computer for free WiFi. & # 39;
Another user said they were recently aware of the policy through a telephone conversation with a manager.
& # 39; I was recently informed of the new policy, over the phone handed to me by a waitress, with the manager on the other side … what a stupid move to drive away customers.
& # 39; Many seniors and retirees come to their local McDonalds to meet friends and have a cup of coffee or a & # 39; Happy & # 39; share meal. & # 39;
Malin said she had never been kicked out of a McDonald's in more than 60 years because she had been in for more than 30 minutes
WKTV received a statement from a PR company in Pennsylvania on behalf of the owner and operator of the McDonald's
It said: “We strive to offer every customer a great restaurant experience and are constantly innovating to find new ways to best serve our customers at the speed of McDonald's, including the addition of mobile ordering and payment, McDelivery, table service in the restaurant of course the drive-in. & # 39;
It is not clear how long or whether this policy is regularly applied in McDonald's restaurants.
It is also not clear whether McDonald & # 39; s Corporation has required this policy or whether it is at the owners' discretion.
