All-hail the Mayor
A Deerfield, Fla., city employee has been reprimanded for not saying “Hello” to the mayor when they passed in a hallway. Maintenance worker Cassandra Moye was told that by not acknowledging Mayor Peggy Noland, she had “caused irrevocable damage to the welfare of the department and your fellow workers” and would be suspended. “I was scared,” says Moye, whose punishment was later reduced to a written citation. “They were talking about firing me. My family needs to eat.”

Burger King kicks out patron over shoeless 6-month old
A Missouri Burger King asked a patron to leave because her 6-month-old daughter wasn’t wearing shoes. Burger King employees claimed that “the infant was violating a health code,” even though it was later determined that “shoelessness is not a health-code violation in St. Louis County.” Burger King apologized and said “the franchisee is retraining his restaurant team on the proper use of the ‘no shoes’ policy.”
