    Arby's Apologizes After Employee Reportedly Refuses to Serve Pembroke Pines Officer

    http://www.nbcmiami.com/news/local/...-323860901.html?_osource=SocialFlowFB_MIBrand

    According to an incident report, Sgt. Jennifer Martin said she was using the drive-thru when the clerk, identified as Kenneth Davenport, "seemed slightly rude and short with his responses," but she assumed there was a problem with the speaker system.

    But when Sgt. Martin pulled to the window and handed her credit card to Davenport, manager Angel Mirabal approached the window.

    "He doesn't want to serve you because you are a police officer," Mirabal told Sgt. Martin, according to the report.

    Davenport had to be ordered to process Sgt. Martin's credit card and she told Mirabal she felt uncomfortable and wasn't certain she wanted to dine there, the report said.

    Mirabal handed her the food and assured her everything was ok, the report said.

    "Mirabal even laughed and said he is allowed to refuse to serve me," Sgt. Martin noted in the report.

    Sgt. Martin felt uncertain of the condition of her food and decided to go inside and get a refund. She said Davenport refused to have contact with her, ignored her and refused to give her his contact information, the report said.

    At Davenport's home Wednesday, his mother questioned why what her son was so bad, considering he was called in to work again earlier in the day.

    In a statement, Pembroke Pines Police Department Chief Dan Giustino said he was "offended" and "appalled" at the incident, and that the department would be contacting the Arby's CEO to demand an apology.

    Giustino went on to say that the incident appears to be confined to a single individual employee, and is not in keeping with the support the department regularly receives from the Pembroke Pines community.

    I don't understand why they even bother hiring people that interact with the customers. I would just put in service kiosks for ordering.

    Sheetz had had them for years I never saw anyone having trouble. But I never did see an old lady using one either. That must be a hoot.
    Like when they try to use a redbox

    I had Lion's Choice in St. Louis. All Arbys should be bulldozed.

    MTO!!!

    Wawa has them too.

    I think they're great and don't care if they put people out of work. I'd much rather punch my own order in they have to repeat no onions 5 times to some gap toothed Haitian.

    They have them at all the Wawas in this region and people don't seem to have a problem. Then the people make the order and call out the number. Almost zero interaction.

    I'm in the camp that believes the less people interact with each other, the better.

    Why a cop would go to a fast food joint is beyond me.
