No More McNuggets? Get the Fuzz on the Phone!

mcnuggets.jpgIn these desperate economic times, a 10-piece McNugget meal is a lot more valuable than it once was. Clearly.

Authorities say a Florida woman called 911 three times after McDonald’s employees told her they were out of McNuggets. A police report said 27-year-old Fort Pierce resident Latreasa L. Goodman told authorities she paid for a 10-piece last week but was later informed the restaurant had run out.
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.
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.

What kind of two-bit McD’s operation runs out of McNuggets? Don’t they ship those in 2-ton boxes? I’m sure that gift card for a free meal will make up for it, though. Woo-hoo! Free value meal!

If they grind up a few gift cards and slather them in chemicals, they might be able to get at least a 6-piece McNugget meal for her.

Florida, go figure...

I was a manager at McDonald's for a year after I graduated from college, and one of my responsibilities was inventory and processing our biweekly food orders. Trust me, running out of things happens, but we had several sister stores that we could borrow from when we needed stuff.

But the worst thing that ever happened was when we got a bad order of meat from our supplier and had to go a whole day without burger meat. So that meant no hamburgers, cheeseburgers, doubles, or Big Macs. Period. You try telling your customers that they can't have dollar double cheeseburgers or their daily Big Mac fix. I feared for my life that day.

I don't understand. If they were out, why didn't they just give her a refund of her money? What's that "All sales are final" nonsense? If they didn't have the item she wanted to purchase, then there was no sale. It was just them taking her money and refusing to give her what she paid for.

cmoody I think you and I are the only ones left in this world with any common sense. The McDonald's culture can't think beyond pushing the little colored button on the cash register. I fear de-evolution is upon us.
