Next time you hit up a Palm Beach Burger King, keep your eye out for Michael Lohan, Lindsay Lohan's 51-year-old troubled father, who recently applied for a job there.

Lohan was released from a court-mandated luxury stay at Behavioral Health of the Palm Beach's seaside villa. He applied for a job at BK as part of his counselor's advice to reintegrate back into society, according to TMZ.

Enrollment at the treatment facility and application to Burger King was apparently part of his plea deal in the domestic violence case against him in Tampa last October involving his ex-fiancée, Star magazine reporter Kate Major.

Other notable people who have spent time in BHPB are professional athletes Ray Lucas of the Miami Dolphins and NBA star Spencer Haywood. The cost of a typical recovery period there ranges from $12,000 to $80,000 per stay.

While chilling in the recovery village, Lohan was detoxed from several illicit substances, including steroids. Last December, Lohan nearly died from a blood clot in his lung. If genes are any indicator, Lohan's daughter will be a party machine well into her 50s.

Meanwhile, Major recently completed a 90-day stretch at a Boca Ration clinic for alcohol recovery. 

Burger King says it doesn't have a record of Lohan's application, but if the Celebrity Rehab star gets the job, Lohan will make $7.75 per hour, starting wage at BK. 

Lohan won't have to worry about paying rent or anything from the meager drive-thru wages; he has a nice sty at a halfway house until his final release March 16. 

Last October, Lohan was arrested on domestic abuse charges for allegedly raging on his then-fiancée after she refused oral sex. 

So whose way is it going to be? Hopefully yours when you see Lohan punching in your order at the counter. And hopefully he doesn't punch you in face.
