It is not every day that we see a man start a brawl with an employee over not able to find any straw, but it has happened at a fast food joint in St. Petersburg, Russia. Going by the reports in CNN, a Florida man started a physical fight with a female employee at the popular food-joint McDonald’s just because he was upset over not finding any plastic straws at the condiment station.
A video has gone viral on the internet in which the man is seen grabbing the employee standing behind the counter and initiating the fight. The man, identified as Daniel Taylor, is 40-year-old and homeless and is seen trying to threaten the employee by the end of the video. However, the woman employee gave a tough fight to him by showering him with punches the moment he grabbed her. According to an ABC report, the woman employee behind the counter, identified as Yasmine James, told the police that the man “forcefully grabbed her” and “pulled” her up onto the counter. To defend herself, she hit back and punched him in the face as he held onto her collar.

She said, “He was yelling and walking toward the counter and the young lady behind the counter told him that it’s the law now that we’re not allowed to have straws in the lobby.” As per the news report, according to a new law effective from January 1 in St. Petersburg, restaurants cannot have straws out and the customers have to request for them. Moreover, they are to be completely stopped in 2020.
