    Default A blind customer tried to order McDonald's in the drive-thru, on-foot, without a car.

    A blind customer tried to order McDonald's in the drive-thru, on-foot, without a car, and has filed a lawsuit for discrimination.

    The lawsuit claims "McDonald’s violates the Americans with Disabilities Act by prohibiting visually impaired pedestrians from ordering at drive-thru windows after restaurant lobbies are closed," CBS Chicago reports. The court complaint cites a specific instance in August 2015 when Magee, who is blind, attempted to order from a McDonald's drive-thru on foot after the restaurant's lobby had closed; Magee says he was refused service and the employees laughed at him. McDonald's company policy is not to serve any drive-thru customers on foot.

    I guess the government discriminates against him too since it won't let him drive on the interstate, just because he's blind? Litigious society run amok.

    ADA is well-intentioned, some good has come out of it, but there have been a lot of unintended consequences. I'd be interested to see if this guy is one of those professional litigators that teams up with lawyers to sue businesses and extort money, basically.

    That said, I was once served in a drive thru like that. It was at the end of a bachelor party and the way the lot was set up, the limo couldn't make the turn into the driveway, so they told us all to get out and we ordered and got food at the window.
