Three customers allegedly assaulted a McDonald's employee after being told the ice cream machine was broken, then seeing someone else with ice cream.

It’s always frustrating to pull into a McDonald’s in search of a McFlurry and hear that the ice cream machine is broken again, but three customers at a McDonald’s in Florida took that news way too hard recently and allegedly assaulted an employee over ice cream.

According to Click Orlando News, three women recently pulled up to the drive-thru at a Daytona Beach McDonald’s and asked for ice cream, but the employee on the other end of the speaker told them that the ice cream machine was broken. At that point the women reportedly parked their car and went into the McDonalds, where they allegedly saw another customer eating an ice cream.

Thinking they’d been tricked, the women reportedly started arguing with the employe. After some heated words were exchanged, the women charged behind the counter and started hitting the employee and pulling her hair.

A manager called 911 and the assailants reportedly fled before the police arrived. Fortunately, the employee was not injured, but police are still looking for the suspects.

McDonald’s employee strikes aggressive customer with spatula

In the middle of a contentious year, with Americans more divided than ever by social issues and party lines, it’s very likely we can all still agree on one universal truth: It really stinks when the ice cream machine at McDonald’s is broken.

Knowing this, software engineer Rashiq Zahid, 24, has developed a resource for tracking and identifying McDonald’s locations with nonfunctioning ice cream machines — undoubtedly an invaluable resource for anyone who prefers not to waste precious time in the pursuit of their sundaes or cones.

Zahid’s resulting website, McBroken, can now identify which of Amerca’s McDonald’s locations have the capacity to serve ice cream, pretty much in real time.

“I was like, there must be something that can be done about this,” Zahid told The Verge of first coming up with the idea, which was sparked following a disappointing trip to a German McDonald’s.

Frustrated, Zahid began playing around with the McDonald’s app, to see if the app itself would alert customers as to whether ice cream was unavailable at certain locations. It did.

He then set out to visit McDonald’s locations across Berlin, in-person, to confirm what he learned through the app — and everything seemed to check out.
