As if in response to this afternoon’s post on public apologies, this story popped up. A 21 year old McDonalds manager at a island resort conference took phone shots of her 48 year old room mate sleeping naked and showed them around the next morning.
The room-mate, who had slept naked in the belief that she had a single room booking, was understandably enraged.
In court, the young photographer said:
“I am very, like, remorseful for what I did.”
Which should be added to the previous list of things not to say after you’ve done something appalling.
The other notable quote came from her defence lawyer, who said:
“Despite her being a manager of McDonald’s, [Murison is] a manager of flipping burgers, not a person who is trained up to deal with situations such as these.”
As if you need special training not to take nude phone shots without permission and show them around a conference breakfast.
Conference managers everywhere will be thinking: this incident represents one percent of the stuff we have to deal with, if the rest of it made it into court nobody would ever hold a conference again.
