An assistant manager at McDonald's was fired after allowing Minnesota Vikings star Adrian Peterson to use the bathroom while the restaurant was closed.
While working the late-night drive-thru shift at 3 a.m., a female employee encountered a man standing outside the window who asked to come inside and use the restroom. After a little while, she realized it was the popular Minnesota Vikings star and opened the door for him to come inside and use the facilities. (The seating area at the restaurant is normally closed during the late-night hours.)

Hmmm, the manager must have been a Packer’s fan.
Yes, she did, and that’s ultimately what cost her her job.
She got it back, though. I wonder if AP will give her a gift?
He suddenly notices that something is wrong. His right arm is a lot hairier than it was a moment ago.
RIMMER: Er, Holly, where's my arm? This isn't my arm. Whose arm is this?
HOLLY: I'm sorry, Arnold. (He doesn't sound very sorry.) Your physical data disk has become corrupted.
RIMMER: Don't give me excuses, give me my arm back.
HOLLY: I'll have to refresh the graphics from a backup.
RIMMER: It's got tattoos. "Candy," "Denmark forever." Is this Petersen's arm, Holly? I've got the arm of a Danish moron.
HOLLY: If you'll just bear with me for a few minutes, Arn.
RIMMER: It's not good enough, Holly. It's traumatic enough being *dead*.
(Looks in the mirror)
And whose ears are these, Holly? They're like two giant radar dishes stuck higgledy-piggledy to the side of my head. I mean, just look at them! Look at them! Whose were these ears, Holly? An African elephant's?
HOLLY: They're your ears, Arnold.
She exercised poor judgment. Sure, she recognized him...but it’s not as if an NFL player has never committed a crime before. He could’ve raped her or done worse once inside. Agreed that McDonalds should not have fired her over the incident, but she did a dumb thing.
I wonder if his posse would have kicked the doors down if she said, “No.”
Sad story. Letting someone go to the bathroom is a firing offense? No good deed goes unpunished.
Why is it that the most menial workers are fired over the most trivial of errors, but say, a President who engages in, say, perjury, or a administration Treasury chief who cheats on his taxes, can get away with those things and they are deemed too unimportant to cost them their jobs?
Meanwhile, you can do bats*** crazy, embarrassing, illegal and immoral acts and keep your job ... if you work in Hollywood as an actor:
At the end of the article it states that she got her job back.
Speaking only for myself, I thinking opening the door at 3 AM for ANYBODY who isn’t supposed to be there is a bad idea, famous professional athlete or not.
I’m glad the lady got her job back, though.
She just padded her resume for a much better job related to customer service.
She had to tell everyone about her fame by association. She would have let you pee your pants, or called the cops and had you shot.
Of course he went on to much bigger things like running his own company, instead it's now his kid who drives the streets in the winter and hands out warm food to people in need.
I wonder what became of the jerks at Arby's?
