Cleaning two-for-one lands convenience store chain in murky water

A convenience store worker took convenience to a new level when he used a mop to clean the floor and then the inside of a microwave used by patrons.

The incident at a 7-Eleven store in Malaysia was made public on Twitter in a four-photo post that got 2.2 million views and was retweeted 14,300 times, according to MSN.

The employee, working in an outlet in Kampung Attap, Kuala Lumpur, has since been suspended and 7-Eleven issued an official statement offering “sincerest apologies for the actions of one of our employees who failed to comply with our strict sanitation protocols.”

“This is a clear violation and does not reflect the high standards we strive to maintain in all of our stores,” the company said.

The company replaced the old microwave with a new one and the store is undergoing a thorough cleaning and sanitation process, the company said.
