    Truth be told McDonald's is a job for teenagers and slow adults.

    For really smart people, normal people are like the disabled.
    Can't make them stop fighting to prove they're not wrong.

    Liberals could learn from her. Even though you have a disability you can still get off your ass and get a job.

      sam I have worked with people with disabilities including people with down syndrome for 27 yrs. One of the clients that I worked with in a group home I will never forget. He had down syndrome and severe MR/DD, and was non-verbal. Every morning at 6:45 I would arrive for my shift, open the door, and he would be standing there with his arms crossed with a grumpy look. As soon as he saw me he would smile and greet me with a good morning bear hug. I truly can't think of a better way to start your day.

    I love stories like that, it comes to show nothing can stop you from living a normal life, working and supporting yourself. Those who just say "I can't work because..." are looking for excuses (with excuses of course, I'm not generalising).

    people like this lady here inspire me to no end! as a youth i use to scoff and make fun of people with disabilities. as i grew older i grew wiser and gained consciousness. these people are truly amazing! 32 years of getting up, dressed and going to work. how many non-handicap people does one see crying about "i can't find work"? this lady did, and she did it for 32 years...congratulations on your retirement !

      Goddamn you were raised by wolves! I don't know if I feel this because I was raised by poor Mexican immigrants but I was taught from an early age to respect working people and not to make fun of disabled people. Good for you for not being a fucking jerk anymore.

    McDonald's loves to hire the disabled because they pay NO taxes or social security plus get a tax write off.

      SatansRaven666, you really need to respect others no matter who they are because their lives matter too. Freia is a very special woman. Please give her a chance, she deserves care and empathy. So SatansRaven666, watch what you say!

      Someone is going to spit in your food, piss on it and rub their stanky ass all over it. While you're eating it you won't notice the different taste cause you yourself is made of shit.
