'Snakes, why'd it have to be snakes?'

SASKATOON — Dealing with harried customers all day, fast-food employees probably get used to all kinds of abuse being thrown their way. But what about reptiles? Two men — unhappy that the onions on their breakfast sandwich were not diced — recently threw a snake over the counter at a Tim Hortons worker in Saskatoon, according to the StarPhoenix. “I’ve never heard of a snake being thrown at an employee by a customer… It was definitely a little chaotic,” said Saskatoon police spokeswoman Alyson Edwards. “The staff was shocked and afraid and fled the store.” Officers managed to find the garter snake and secured “Outlaw” a temporary home until it could be released into the wild in the spring. The two men, both 20, are facing charges of mischief and causing a disturbance.
