An Arkansas couple is suing a Fayetteville McDonald’s after some photos were lifted off of their cell phone.
Phillip Sherman left his cell phone at a McDonald’s back in July. He called the restaurant and was assured that they would secure his phone until he could return. But before he could retrieve the phone, nude pictures of his wife were taken and posted online.
Sherman’s wife, Tina, started receiving calls and text messages about the pics, which is when she learned they had been posted. Along with her name, address, and phone number. Yikes.
The Shermans are suing the restaurant, McDonald’s Corp., and the manager. They claim that they were so embarrassed that they needed to move.
Lessons to be learned from this:
Never, ever send naked pics of yourself to your spouse’s cell phone.
If you do send the pics, don’t lose the cell phone.
If you lose the phone, don’t be surprised if the pics end up on the internet.
Should the employees have posted the pics? No. But posting her name, address, and phone number? Way, way worse.
Truly, the employees shouldn’t have even looked at the phone at all. What were they thinking? Stupid move, people. Really stupid move.
