A Texan woman was sentenced to 10 years in jail for running over the manager of a McDonald's with her car because she wanted mayonnaise on her cheeseburger.
Waynetta Nolan, 37, showed no emotion as the sentence was read in court following a trial in which the McDonald's manager, Sherry Jenkins, said she gave Nolan the mayonnaise she requested, but she flew into a rage anyway.
"I gave her everything she asked for — mayonnaise, no mustard, onions, everything I could possibly do for this lady. Mayo, mayo, mayo, and it's still not good enough," Ms Jenkins said outside the courtroom.
Nolan, who was convicted of aggravated assault for the April 23 incident, became so angry when a McDonald's employee told her she could not have mayonnaise that she threw her cheeseburger into the drive-through window, witnesses said.
Ms Jenkins tried to placate her by offering a cheeseburger with mayonnaise, but Nolan continued to make demands until Ms Jenkins finally called the police. When she went outside to write down Nolan's car registration number, Nolan ran her over, breaking her pelvis.
Nolan testified that she was putting ketchup on her cheeseburger when she accidentally struck Ms Jenkins.
