Food News: Woman calls 911 over McNuggets

What is it with these stories of people contacting the police over food orders?  This isn’t the first time I’ve heard of a story like this.  Anyone remember the clown who called 911 over his Subway sandwich?  Listen to the audio here.  

So anyways, this woman in Florida orders some McNuggets but McDonald’s had run out.  I can sort of relate as I once went to KFC and they were out of chicken.  No kidding.  

McNuggets from McDonald's


She says she was refused a refund and told all sales were final. A cashier told police she offered Goodman a larger portion of different food for the same price, but Goodman became irate. “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,” Goodman told police, according to The Stuart News. “This is an emergency.”

Police say Goodman was cited on a misuse of 911 charge. A current phone listing for Goodman couldn’t be found.

A McDonald’s spokesman says Goodman should have been given a refund, and she’s being sent a gift card for a free meal.

So file this under “feel better about yourself”.  If you haven’t yet lost your mind enough to call the cops over a couple of bucks, take comfort in that.  (*Update, here’s the audio)

    I was at a McDonalds on the lower east side in Manhattan once to get either an apple pie or a chocolate milkshake and they were out of both. It was pretty absurd, especially considering I only eat fast food practically once ever 4 years.
