If there is one thing America is known for, it is our love for fast food. Is there anything better than sitting in your cozy car, waiting to put in your order through the crackly speaker box, and then finally getting your warm, salty treats? There is just something about fast food that is absolutely addicting.
It may not be good for you, but every once in a while, fast food can be just the thing you need. When it comes to fast food, one of the best items in the world comes from McDonalds. I'm talking about the mighty chicken nugget. They come in many order sizes, from four to sixty, but one thing is for sure, it never feels like enough.
You always wish you had more chicken nuggets once you're done with your final crunchy bite. That's why one McDonald's employee went above and beyond to provide that extra chicken nugget for everyone who ordered one. While it may be against company policy, he is a true chicken nugget hero.
We are all taught not to steal from anyone, but then we are inundated with the classic story of Robin Hood which has the moral lesson that we SHOULD steal, as long as its from the rich. It can be a very confusing mix of messages for a young mind, especially as they enter the workforce, working for billion dollar businesses. There is no one more rich than a mega corporation, and when it comes to mega corporations, there is no one bigger than McDonalds.
That's why this story of theft isn't one to feel angry about. It is one to celebrate. This is the story of a modern day McDonalds Robin Hood named Cody Bondarchuk. Cody is from Canada and used to work at a Canadian McDonalds. Recently on Twitter, he admitted that he used to give every single customer an extra chicken nugget with their order.
Cody Bondarchuk's tweet went viral after he posted it on November 15th. His tweet read, "I worked at McDonald's for two and a half years and I put 11 nuggets in almost every 10-piece I made." That's the kind of heroic act we need in 2019, isn't it? According to Cody, he wasn't the only Robin Hood at his Mcdonalds. "It was something that a lot of my coworkers did as well. It was really easy to overfill them without it looking weird when it was on the delivery line, and of course there are no cameras on the kitchen line."
Many Twitter users joked that they didn't deserve a hero like Cody, so he joked back with a tweet saying, "I'm seeing a lot of comments about y'all not deserving a hero but I just wanted to say that EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU DESERVES THOSE BONUS NUGGETS"
It turns out that Cody isn't the only hero out there. His story prompted other fast food workers to share their stories of going above and beyond for their customers. All of their stories became very popular. Cody told CTV News, "anything that's a little dig at corporate overlords is popular." Some people weren't so keen on Cody's thievery. They complained that he was essentially stealing by giving away the company's property. Cody did the math on what he gave away, and according to him it only adds up to $1,600, so it's not that big of an issue to him.
It is unclear what McDonalds thinks about this, but it is unlikely that they will pursue any kind of legal action. It didn't work out too well in the story of Robin Hood when people came after Robin, after all.
