A large McStupid with fries, please

Most people I know would not consider a dearth of Chicken McNuggets an appropriate reason to call 911 once, let alone three times. Apparently, however, a lady in Florida felt otherwise.

According to the story, she ordered 10 Chicken McNuggets and was told the restaurant was out. The cashier offered her a more expensive alternative at no additional cost, at which point the lady went what can only be called McStupid. Instead of taking advantage of this offer, she demanded her money back and was told that all sales were final.

Now, to be fair to the lady, McDonald’s policy is apparently to provide a full refund when an order can’t be filled and the customer doesn’t want an alternative. Apparently, the employee she was dealing with apparently wasn’t aware of this policy. It still doesn’t excuse that happened next.

It was somewhere around this point that she started calling 911.

She told police “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. This is an emergency.” When the police showed up and took her complaint they wrote in their report…

“Goodman maintained the attitude ‘this is an emergency, my McNuggets are an emergency’”

Her “reward” for being McStupid is an apology from McDonald’s, a full refund and a free meal courtesy of McDonald’s and a notice to appear in court on a misuse of 911 charge.
