Companies should have a right to fire anyone, with or without cause
The company was with its rights since the employee violated the rules
They should have given a warning, but it's none of the court's business
The court was right to bring justice to the worker
Seriously, McDonalds sounds like a friggin' stingy-assed company
Aren't restaurants required to give a duty meal? Good grief!

Are you coming to bed?
I can't. This is important.

Since no one really knows the circumstances, it's none of anyone's business. Perhaps this employee was doing this kind of thing regularly and this was the last straw? It really comes down to theft, the employee was giving someone something that they had not paid for and theft is theft, even if it is just a piece of cheese.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
In my state, restaurant employers are required by law to give one duty meal, up to a certain amount of money, while the employee is at work. I'm surprised that civilized Holland doesn't require this
If the standard amount of ice for a soda is one scoop, and an employee gives only half a scoop, resulting in more soda in the cup, and they get fired over it...burn the building down, I say.
I bet the manager of this restaurant has a dozen small claims suits filed on costumers who take items off their order after their order is made or drops a drink on the floor. If an employee drops a product, YOU'RE FIRED!! If an employee mispacks an order resulting in something free given to the costumer when they call to complain, YOU'RE FIRED!!
If you drop a single french fie....YOU'RE FIRED!!!
Man, **** that place.

The real question is if it was a slice of American cheese or not. If it was, then the harlot should be burnt at the stake; Freedom ain't free.
If it was the local Netherlands Cheese primed in the hinterlands, then I agree with the courts ruling.

They didn't mention that this McDonald's was owned by mice, who take their cheese very seriously.
