Woman Calls 911 Afer McDonald's Runs Out of McNuggets - March 4th 2009, 07:45 AM

Hi Everyone!!

I hope you're having a super duper day.

That's RIGHT.... a woman calls 911 after McDonald's runs out of McNuggets!!

http://www.wpbf.com/cnn-news/18843229/detail.html

McDonald's was wrong NOT to refund her money - but was it an EMERGENCY?!

GREAT BIG HUG
Craig!!

Wow...some people will go to extremes to get what they want. Did she think the police were going to arrest the manager if he didn't give her her money back? What does the meal even cost? Some people need common sense kicked into them. She could have complained on their website and they would have sent her vouchers, like they did with my dad when he complained on their website.


Who do you carry that torch for, my young man?
Do you believe in anything?
Or do you carry it around just to burn things down?

Meet me tonight on the turnpike my darling,
where we believe in everything.
If we sweat all these debts then we're sure to drown,
so let's strap ourselves up to this engine now
with our God who we found laying under the back seat.

Lol, I'd have wanted my money back. While I think only one call was nessisary, they still should have given her the money back. If she had not made such a big deal about it, she could have sued them and had enough for free nuggets for a nice while. xD

The way the article is written makes it sound like a joke..
but anyway.. I think this woman was absolutely right to get angry, but call the police? That's a bit far. All she had to do was write a letter to mcdonalds and she'd have probably got a similar response, and her money back.


..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..

Ahaha, I like this line: "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."

I do think they should have given her her money back, though, since they shouldn't have taken money for a product they didn't stock. While it was only some chicken nuggets, if the same happened with something like a car, you'd expect your money back, so the situation at McDonalds shouldn't be any different.

Why did they make her pay for the nuggets if they didn't have any?

It was still stupid of her to call 911. Urgh people like this annoy me I heard that someone sued a supermarket because they tripped over someone's child. Guess what it was their own child. GRRR.

Hehe, once burned, twice shy.
That was just a stupid employee and a silly lady who thought that being mistreated in a store means you get to call 911.
I do like McNuggets though...

I think it was idiotic of her to call 911 but I also understand why she did so. It was also not right of mcdonalds to not return her money, because that is all she was asking for.

Well, yes. The McDonalds staff took her money, wouldn't give her the product she'd paid for, and refused to give her a refund when they couldn't supply her goods. Around here we call that theft. What she did is nothing like as stupid as the article made out.

Over chicken nuggets? O_o They offered her another product. I mean, yeah, it sucks. But 911? Chicken.. police.... wow.

My store didn't offer refunds, either. We always replaced the product. We'd even give you a more expensive product. No money back. Voucher, maybe. If they'd called the police here, they would have been laughed off the phone.

Granted, they did take her money without giving her a product, however, they also gave her the chance to choose something else to make the sale. Calling 911 3 times over some stupid McNuggets is ridiculous. I'm not sure if McDonalds is responsible or not. Since they didn't have a sign out or didn't tell the person when she placed the order that they were out of the McNuggets, I'm not sure if that would count as a sale. I assume it would seeing as how she gave the money. But, had the employee given the money back, it would have gone against the policy of all sales are final. It's somewhat fishy because it could be false advertising: they say they have the product when they don't, however, if they didn't know they didn't have it, I assume that may also count under false advertising. But calling 911 3 times... FAIL.

Not getting a refund from a restaurant isn't the type of "theft" that the 9-1-1 emergency system was designed for.

Nonetheless, if the store policy is "no refunds" (no matter how idiotic that may be in this situation), she has no right to misuse that emergency system. Citizens need that system in situations where they are getting shot, mugged, or are having heart attacks/seizures/strokes/etc.. When somebody calls 9-1-1 because they didn't get a refund, the news has every right to make them out as idiotic. In this case, rightfully so.

this lady was being rediculous. yea she should have done something to get her money back like asking to see a supervisor or manager or making a complaint on the website. but not calling the police 3 times. somebody should throw mcnuggets at her for being so stupid.

She should get her money back. For sure.

Although, you don't need to call 911, someone else needs it more.... maybe the police at best.

But in all seriousness, you can be charged for misusing 911.
McDonald's should have given her money back.. but they didn't. The woman didn't have to call the police; she could've filed a complaint or spoken to the manager. Misusing the emergency lines means less time for REAL emergencies

There is a huge bold line between what you deal with yourself and what you can call 911 for. I'd much rather have the line open for when I'm dying of a heart attack than when some lady wants her chicken nuggets. And what McDonald's did was perfectly legal.

I do agree with Jack, she forgot congress.

Anyway. Call the manager, call the main McDonald's if you must - I agree, I would be pretty pissed off. Like, I came there for nuggets, not some other food. But I wouldn't be idiotic enough to call 911...

Hi Everyone!!

I hope you're having a wonderful McDay!!

I'm not sure that all of you READ the ENTIRE article!!

Here was the response from McDonald's.

"Carlos Solorzano, operations manager for all McDonald's restaurants in Florida, issued a statement Tuesday apologizing for the incident."Satisfying each and every customer that visits our restaurants is very important to us," Solorzano said. "Regarding this isolated incident, we apologize for the inconvenience caused. In the event that we are unable to fill an order, a customer should be offered the choice of a full refund or alternative menu items. We regret that in this instance, that wasn't the case."We want to correct our mistake. We will be sending the customer her refund, along with an invitation to return for her original order, on us. We never want to disappoint a McNuggets fan or any McDonald's customer. Customer satisfaction is our top priority."

Which is exactly what SHOULD have happened. No doubt - stories like that are nothing but a pain the back side for McDonald's.

Did the customer overreact?! Of course she did. Now if she paid for a Fillet of Fish and didn't get it OR her money back - well - that's a different story. I - for one - would have set the restaurant on fire - waited for a little while - and then phoned the fire department. LOL

GREAT BIG HUG
Craig!!

I do agree with Jack, she forgot congress.

Anyway. Call the manager, call the main McDonald's if you must - I agree, I would be pretty pissed off. Like, I came there for nuggets, not some other food. But I wouldn't be idiotic enough to call 911...
"The manager just took my money and won't give me my money back, trying to make me get something off the menu that I don't want," is what she said, so she'd already talked to the manager. She didn't have a receipt, so writing to higher management would probably have been fruitless. And if it's legal to accept money for a product that you have no intention of supplying in the US, there's a major gap in the law. Yes, using the emergency number was probably the wrong thing to do. But thanks to the behaviour of the McDonalds staff she had few options.

Offending people is easy, being politically correct is a pain in the butt.

What a sensible thing to do. I'm suprised they didn't get a helicopter to bring them over from another restaurent for her...




Live on love.

As I heard it, people have been calling her and leaving death threats.
She apologized and said she didn't understand the nature of 911.

It seems ridiculous, but many people DONT know what 911 is for. It is this general number that many think is a "help line" you can call whenever you want. Like to get rid of traffic or ... get McNuggets.

I think this shows how we need more eduction on exactly what 911 is.

On a similar note: does anyone know what number you're supposed to call in a non emergency, but still in need of cops? (e.g. a house broken into or a couch in the road).

I'd assume it's your local police station, but I'm not sure.
