Lady Calls 911 Over Critical McNuggets Shortage


A lady who attempted to order Chicken McNuggets at her local McDonald’s was shocked to discover they had run out, and felt she had no recourse but to summon police to the scene; with police already on the way assist her with this pressing crisis, she made three 911 calls, pleading for aid.

The dire straits she was in were summed up in her desperate 911 call, prompted by her failed attempt to order 10 McNuggets:

“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.”

She apparently attempted to secure a refund, but the implacable corporate giant stood by its policy that “All sales are final”, leaving her no recourse but to summon the law.

The lady felt she could not accept the offer of an even larger portion of food in exchange for the payment, and the cashier reported that her stressful ordeal caused her to become irate, yelling “I don’t want a McDouble and small fry!”

She explained her difficult predicament later: “I called 911 because I couldn’t get a refund, and I wanted my McNuggets.”

During the emergency she summoned police on no less than three occasions, and was informed that an officer was coming to assist each time.

The lady was later ticketed by police for abusing the 911 service. The report on the incident stated “Goodman maintained the attitude ‘this is an emergency, my McNuggets are an emergency.’”

Via the Sun-Sentinel.

Although clearly the prospect of running out of McNuggets may be uniquely pressing to some Americans, idiosyncratic “emergencies” reported to police and similar are a universal phenomenon; the Japanese equivalent is concern over one’s ice cream melting necessitating police intervention

    how stupid can this lady be? you don't call 911 for something as stupid as running out of nuggets. go home for christs sake and make something else. it takes a winner i guess to bother police for something that stupid

    Since when are all sales final at McDonalds? Here in the states, they will gladly refund your money. Makes me wonder how they think they can get away with a customer service travesty like that.

    Also, that woman needs to be fined for misusing 911 (or 119 as it is in Japan)

    True, but she called 911, which is meant for emergencies only. She should have just called the police, rather than the emergency hotline.

    But regardless, just yet another example of the general stupidity of humanity...

    The women should just get another order instead to summon the police for the sake of a Mcnuggets. People nowadays are very addicted to McDonald.

    I can't believe this story made it to this site, this shit happen at the Micky D's not even 20 minutes away from my house. The real question lies in if they were out of the nuggets, why did they even agree to the sales transaction as opposed to just telling her they were out before said sale had occured?

    OMFG i mean she deserved after all that not an emergency but i think its more the McDonald’s fault i mean where's the "the client is always right"? she gave the money for McNuggets so either they should give what she asked or refund in case she wouldnt want the alternative menu. omfg wheres the world going to *creating idiots since...the beggining of time!?* i mean im seeing so many shit(stupid ppl doing stupid things) news in here, can't help wondering if this ppl even have a brain. i mean if it was a person with mental issues it would b acceptable but we r talking about normal ppl, what happened? did they hitted with their head too hard on something? the give a whole new meaning to the word FAIL

    The women was right. wasnt she ?

    Why does she have to pay for something she doesnt want ? Even if she would get something better.

    Well.. what a very unimportant news, but it draws so much attention to it... including me.... xD

    Thats how to make small and unimportant news important. Just add a nice picture to it xD

    Calling 911 was very stupid though. In fact, they gave her 3 times before they arrested her for calling for this B.S. that could've been solved by asking for the manager or franchise owner. This is the face a of someone who voted for "change." ;)

    When I see these W instead of M type of illustrations, I always think yeah Wc fits them more as their food is as bad as something from a toilet. Once I ate some McCookies and they tasted like wood powder...

    I agree...and yet I still eat there!
    Must be the delicious hydrogenated vegetable oil.

    Not the McNuggets though, as I always feel a bit queasy when I see those.Probably due to the famous Mc-Chicken's Head©...

    All they needed to do was break up generic chicken sandwich into bite-sized pieces and give it to her.

    Well in this case, everyone loses.

    Even though it should be a fat person, it wasn't. News article with the picture of said person. Looked like your normal teen that isn't obese/fat.

    Call a spade a spade, guys (I'm black btw). That's what she is, but don't use the N-word (-er ending) like this in a time of P.C. gone wild. Other *ignorant* black ppl reading this and will take it the wrong way.

    Just saw this on the news. Not getting nuggets is not an extreme enough situation to call 911 but McDonald's made the mistake of not giving a refund when they didn't have nuggets to give. C'mon, it's just a few dollars and McDonalds could've avoided this whole mess. Did the lady even try talking to the manager?
