This Sydney Man Impersonating A Police Officer For Free Nuggs & A Big Mac Is All Of Us
In news that’ll make you go LOL, a Sydney prison guard has been fired after he posed as a police officer to get a cheap Big Mac and 24 nuggets.
According to news.com.au, the man attempted to flash his ID to the drive-thru staff at McDonald’s in Kingsford on December 29, asking for a police discount worth $10.53 on his Big Mac and nuggs.
However, staff noticed the badge read ‘NSW Police — External Contractor’ and when questioned he said that it was his off-duty badge.
I’m not going to lie, I’m rather impressed.
It’s unclear whether he got the discount or not, but now his one little lie over Christmas has got himself into a lot of trouble. He was not only fired but has pleaded guilty in the Waverley Local Court on Tuesday. He was convicted on a charge of impersonating a police officer but granted a section 10 non-conviction in court.
Magistrate Jacqueline Trad said regarding his shifty actions:
“You’ve got to understand it’s a fine line that people step when they start flashing these things for different purposes and then the next thing and the next thing and it becomes more serious,” she said.
He’s still a hero in our eyes.
