Horsing around

You can lead a horse to the drive-thru, but you can’t make the restaurant serve you. A woman tried riding her horse through a McDonald’s drive-thru outside of Manchester, U.K., on July 20. The surprised store workers informed the woman, whom police did not identify, that she had to be in a car to take advantage of the drive-thru lane. Undeterred, the woman entered the restaurant with her daughter and horse in tow. She left after being chastised by McDonald’s staff, but not before her pony deposited a mess on the restaurant’s floor. According to local authorities, the woman was later fined for causing alarm and distress to employees and customers.
