– A new plastic straw law in Florida had unexpected consequences when a Florida Cracker lashed out at a worker at a McDonalds in St. Petersburg
Thanks to Sarkes Corner Contributors friend Chuckie Kofron and sister Cindy Mamelian for this story about another fisticuffs involving a Florida Cracker.
A Florida Cracker, Daniel Taylor, had just received his order at a McDonald’s in St. Petersburg. Cracker Taylor became upset when there weren’t any plastic straws out at the condiment station. He walked back to the counter and got in a heated argument with a McDonald Associate,Yasmine James, about the straws. Cracker Taylor then reached over the counter and grabbed the Associate James.
A city ordinance went into effect on January 1 that requires customers to ask for straws. It’s a way for businesses to adjust before a ban on single-use plastic straws takes effect in January 2020. Since reading is not a strong suit of the Florida Cracker, Cracker Taylor was probably unaware of the ordinance.
Cracker Taylor, demanding that Straws be placed in the condiment station, started yelling that the employees weren’t doing their jobs. Associate James tried to tell Cracker Taylor that they are not allowed to have straws in the lobby but he could get one upon request. Cracker Taylor, a Philadelphia Lawyer, told the Associate James that there was no such law.
Cracker Taylor continued his heated exchange with the Associate James exchanging words laced with profanity. Cracker Taylor then reached across the counter and grabbed Associate James and hit her.
Cracker Taylor grabbed Associate James by her shirt and pulled her close to his face. In response, Associate James started whaling on the man, punch after punch. Like a fight at a Hockey game, Cracker Taylor and Associate James gripped onto each other and would not let go. Fists flew and so did expletives.
Like a referee at a Hockey Game, it took other McDonalds Employees almost 30 seconds to separate Cracker Taylor and Associate James as they continue to wail on each other. After being pulled from Cracker Taylor’s grip, Associate James yelled and cursed as she was led away by a colleague.
Cracker Taylor, obviously believing he was innocent, shouted, “I want her a** fired right now.”
Associate James responded: ”No, you’re going to go to jail. You put your hands on me first,” she yelled, clapping her hands together.
Cracker Taylor hurled more profanities at her, saying he was just trying to ask a question. Another McDonald’s employee asked him to leave.
Before leaving the restaurant Cracker Taylor kicked another employee, Tatiana Bell, in the stomach as she stood near the exit. Ouch
Associate James was not injured, according to the affidavit. Associate Bell, the employee who was kicked in the stomach, complained of pain afterward.
Soon after the incident, Cracker Taylor called the police from a couple miles down the road to complain that he’d been hit repeatedly in the head. Now that takes balls. When the officers arrived, they recognized Cracker Taylor from the video at McDonald’s and took him into custody. Cracker Taylor
was arrested on two charges of simple battery.
A statement issued by Ronald McDonald stated: “Our highest priority is always the safety and well-being of our employees and customers at our restaurants. We have been in contact with the police department and are fully cooperating with their investigation.”
The Golden Arches, the number 1 customer of McDonalds, tweeted:

I support McDonalds 1000 percent on this one. While Daniel Taylor is part of my base, his behavior was unacceptable and was a disruption to other customers waiting for their Great Big Mac or Quarter Pounder with Cheese. Lock Him Up, Lock Him Up, Lock Him Up.

Did you see the video where McDonalds employee Tatiana Bell beat the crap out of Daniel Taylor. Not bad for a small Black girl. I am a Counterpuncher and Tatiana Bell did a great job Counterpunching. Blacks Love Me!!!!

Even though I love my Big Macs and Quarter Pounders with Cheese and of course McDonalds Fries, I am still the healthiest President in History, of all time. No one has the right to interfere with my right to get a great sandwich from McDonalds. Sometimes I order a DOUBLE Quarter Pounder with Cheese. Tasty
