you do know that the lady called 911 because the McDonalds counter worker REFUSED to return her money, and informed her to order something else off of the value menu...


I tell you one thing... 1 dollar or 100 dollars... you take my money, and refuse to give it back, you damn well better be calling the cops, because if you don't or I don't... Well, there's bound to be fisticuffs thrown, so police interjection is probably the best option...

"This is an emergency, If I would have known they didn't have McNuggets, I wouldn't have given my money, and now she wants to give me a McDouble, but I don't want one,” Latreasa L. Goodman later told police. “This is an emergency."



Goodman told investigators she tried to get a refund for the 10-piece McNuggets, but the cashier told her all sales are final.


The woman was right to call the police. No debate.

Greetings



Everyone who is arguing that she was right is clearly missing the point. Yes mcdonalds was in the wrong and she had the right to call the police, but NOT to call 911. There is a number in the phone book for the police department. 911 is only for emergencies. She should have looked up the number. Two crimes committed 1: McDonalds taking her ten dollars 2: Blatant misuse of the emergency system. I think it's pretty clear which is more important. I can't believe we are arguing this.

Nobody should judge this woman for what she has done. It is the government's responsibiliy to assure that everyone knows the right numbers to call.

Ridicule isn't beneficial and won't help or improve a thing. Note, it's always easier to stay kewl if you are not caught in the same situation.
PS: no need to star my posting, I know I am right

The government's responsibility? What happened to indivdual responsibility?

They McDonald's managere is at fault for not offering a refund, McDonalds actually has a hotline number for problems like this and is posted througout the store. This does not excuse the women's abuse of 911.

911 is an emergency number and not for a dispute over $1.99. If I were the judge I would order the McDonald's to refund the miniscule amount and have the women do community service. That women could have contacted the local police department via 411 or gone there in person. Stupidity is not an excuse and 911 if for emergencies only. This is a case of stupidity on both sides and given the location should not be a suprise.

No lie,
I had a short lunch break today and I didn't have time to go home and cook (like usual) so I went to Wendy's to get a salad. Because they are delicious salads.

And they told me that they "salad-maker" wasn't in, so they didn't have salads.

That happened today. I didn't call 911 though, haha, or yell. I was like, fine, I'll have a chicken sandwich because I was already there. But I probably won't go back now.

The funny thing is that in my case, the healthiest thing wasn't available.


Actually... Most fast food salads are worse then a burger. The one fast food item with more fat and calories then any other? A salad at Arbys. It even beats out the Triple BK Stacker with bacon. Anyways this woman is an idiot. The police have a job to do and it is not to go to McDs and get you your nuggets. I've had plenty of times I went to BK for Onion Rings and they were sold out. Did I throw a fit? No. I realized that Onion Rings are good, people buy them, so no doubt they might be sold out some times.

Also as for the no refund, rules are rules. No matter how stupid they may be. One place I worked at we had to do the things as they told us. It took longer, was harder to do, but we had to do it that way. But got paid by the hour so hell do it the way they want, take more time to do it, got paid more. So don't be saying McDs is at fault for following a rule even if the rule is stupid as hell.

Refusing a refund is a civil case, not a police matter.

I gotta agree on all that's been written on that point, refusal of a refund while a civil matter and can be mediated by the police is hardly a 911 worth emergency....

She's right to be facing charges for misuse of the 911 emergency system.

To all of you that think it's OK for corporations to defraud and steal from hard working Americans, shame on you...


Not to mention the fact that those same corporations operating the fast-food business are serving extra extra extra super size french fries and bacon cheeseburgers packed with special sauce and extra pickles.


Really? Where again can I get these "extra, extra, extra super size french fries?" And "extra pickles"? I knew their was a pickle conspiracy! I knew it!


Exactly. The corporations are 'guilty' for both stealing from us and making us fat.


Umm, no. I was mocking you and I guess it went over your head. Some corporation is making you fat??? Newsflash - YOU are making you fat.


Oh I am very much aware of that. However I was being sarcastic as you will note by the 'quotes' on either side of the word 'guilty'. So there was no necessary need to make fun of me.

Besides--you want to make fun of someone. There's somebody who posted in this thread who was the first to have brought up the notion about "corporations stealing from Americans" and this same person also said that some people who posted in this thread were making 'racist' remarks when in fact nobody was committing such a heinous act. Apparently THAT went over YOUR head.

If anyone died as a result of rescue workers being detained, I hope she gets charged with attempted murder.

There also needs to be more stupid laws. YOu waste rescue workers time, you pay.



As for McDonalds stealing money, I am sure they would promptly give her a refund, or something else of equal value.

I have been unfortunate enough to work at fast food, and poeple will do anything to get a free meal.
And these days, people are getting more scandelous then ever. My husband is a mechanic and now people are pulling all sorts of stunts, trying to get free work.

I guess it fits under breaking alternative news.

That woman is a complete moron, doesnt she realise that calling an emergency number could be delaying help for a real emergency?

Yes McDonalds should have offered her a refund, but she couldve called the head store or the local police station...sheesh

I am sure no one will agree with me, and her use of 911 was not right use. But, the cops should have arrested the employee from McDonald's for STEALING, Theft by Deception, and fraud. That woulda woke up the dimwitted employee who obviously, as the story states, violated McDonald's rules on giving a refund.

It is against the law to sell something you don't own and to keep the money, funny none of you seemed to pick up on that fact. You prefer to think it's over chicken nuggets and not outright theft and fraud by McDonald's. I personally hope some unscrupulous attorney has already contacted this woman and is ready to file charges against McDonald's. If hot coffee is worth 1 million, theft should be worth 10 million. Besides I bet no McDonald's employee would ever ever ever tell a customer they couldn't have their money back again if McDonald's paid for this blatant fraud, deception and theft.

If it had been me, they would have been arresting me for assault not 911 calls... To all of you that think it's OK for corporations to defraud and steal from hard working Americans, shame on you...



I totally agree with you, i thought it was funny at first and that it was just over the nuggets, untill i heard the actual 911 call, then i understood.

How the hell can a mc'donalds employee tell someone i wont give you your money back after you asked for and paid for a specific item on the menu.

calling 911 was taking it a bit far, i agree but i completely understand this womans frustration.

Community service is a brilliant idea! Sentence her to community service in a chicken slaughterhouse.


BAD idea.

Why you ask?

She'd probably call 911 to report that there are a bunch of serial chicken killers at her location..

Thank you folks, I'm here all night!

(pop pop, is this thing on?)



People like this just lower my faith in humanity more and more.

Where do you even get that info from Rofl?

The defenders of liberty are over weight and Drug Addled?

Who?

George Washington who supposedly throw a coin over the Patomic Jefferson was a fat arse?

And what drugs? hemp?

When did you ever see a Drug addict a real one do anything? and how is drugs relevant anyway? Unlike fast crap food there are a Million different kinds all with different effects

wont get into that topic and violate, but the majority of people who are "drug addicts" never do a damn thing... we haven't been able to get Hemp legal for 60 years let alone change the government

So who are these big lard arses who have changed history and what percentage would they fall into?

As far as your math Genius who drank nothing but Cofee

Yeah

That's called calorie RESTRICTION it's good for you

so are you trying to prove my point?

If your Math genius ate Mc Donalds regularly he'd be a MORON and FAIL

Coffees a stimulant very nice for work... Hunger creates drive to DO stuff

What on Earth is that example to in regards to someone who lives on Chicken Frackin Mc Nuggets...

AND I'M A DIET NAZI?

NO, I'm just not an idiot, I post the truth for those who want to hear... but I won't be advocating any diet laws, I make a living ALLOT easier if most people are mindless and consuming crap they don't need or isn't good for them

Even if you felt like pointing out a few founding fathers or anyone else from anywhere that was Fat in the past and was an advocate of human freedom...

They still would ave gotten fat from Real non treated Meat and Non modified Potatoes and veggies and stuff they GREW

Might get Fat around the waist but not in the BLOOD VESSELS which supply the blood to their brains

Eating WELL and getting Fat is okay, Eating jalapeno poppers and Chicken Mc Nuggets is taking 20 years of your life, even if you stay smart, your limited of energy, and vitality and Duration of capacity


What your arguing and calling Diet Nazi

Is in essence the same argument as standing next to me and putting KY Jelly in your Car engine instead of oil and trying to convince me it's a good thing

Please, run your car on KY Jelly...heck, lets race... You could start in a ferrari and i'll start in a Beatle and I'll finish the race...your engine will blow in a few miles

These stories ALWAYS come out of Mc Donalds lol, think it's a coincidence? The people that make it a regular part of their diet become MORONS

You can tie directly the decline of American educational standards to the rise of fast food year by year, it's an undeniable thing.

AND

It's not Diet Nazi

it's SELF RESPECT

You treat your self like crap, you get the expected results, a complete LACK of intelligence and complete lack of self respect is visable in anyone who would make Mc Donalds something they care about...

a G-d damned clown is where you get your food from? Your personal FUEL? You'll get what you deserve in the end if that's okay by you.

I'm having london Broil with Avacado and tomatoes tonight.. go get that BIG MAC lol

Because Mc Donalds is probably one of the biggest real conspracies going to date against the American People

Doctors have come forward and people have offered that they add ADDICTIVE chemicals to the food to make you crave it, yet they provide zero nutritional value, they sponsor the Olympics and kids watching Athletes being inspired run out and ruin their dreams by never being told it's saw dust soy, hooves and greese what meat there is is taken from the worlds most retarded farm animals, from the worst possible farms, is probably laden with various Prions and will condemn them to Alzheimers in later years of life

The animals are packed together and stand in their own #e all day and are fed parts of each other to each other

It's like the Matrix for cows

This is a woman who... probably thinks Grape Drink is a good choice for breakfast for her kids and then calls up the school to complain "her kids ain't getin an EDUMACASHON"

I think you call the cops over 1.99, and take 911 away from people who need it... they should have a right to put you down when they arrive...for good.

Same type of imbecile who believes Socialism is a good idea because they are too stupid to function and expect to take part of my hard work for themselves..

I HATE people like this with a passion,

She needs to take her Kool aid and chicken Mc Nuggets and go wait in line at the emergency room for a brain scan and not sue Mc Donalds for hot coffee or call 911 for 1.99...

and the kid who wouldn't give her her Mc Nugget money back...

For even obeying that order while his equally retarded boss watched... He is kid just waiting for his Darwin Award anyway in life, so screw him too

Every single person involved in this BELONGS at Mc Donalds

so long as they lock the frackin door and fence the place in once they are inside...

They will have a blast pouring sugar water down their throats and going on the slide all day in between punching each other in the arm and quoting TV Commercials as their sole source of a sense of humor

Well, when you call 911 about something so STUPID, people are most likely going to think that it's a prank call. I mean if I called them they would come and arrest me. Most of the time people like that are high and that was probably one of the reasons that she was arrested, even though they say it was "misusing and emergency line". She was stupid to call though..

Every body knows the McNugget Emergency Response Team (McNert) number
is 915.

Had she of dialed the correct number, the Emergency Response Team would
have been dispatched to 325 Main St Fl within seconds of the Call.
To save time, they cook them on en-route, in order to minimize downtime.
