Is this really true??? I don't know whether to laugh or just not believe it or even just put it in social chat!!!

To be honest if Pie Minister ran out of pies I may be inclined to do the same but that's another story.......

Posted:personally i think the bigger problem is she was refused a refund. obviously she did over react by calling an emergency number and becoming "irate", but i am sure it was fair to become annoyed when refused a refund for a product they could not provide.

personally i think she should have told them if they didnt give her her refund she would come over and take it. then THEY would have called the police and gotten bad press for failing a pretty standard business transaction. if you dont have the product you dont sell it.

Posted:I agree with Mr Maj that it's totally McF*ckedups mistake in not providing a refund when they couldn't provide the product. How dare they! Mentally ill Doc, how to you get there? The caller didn't get particularly irate, she sounded quite calm. Unless you mean wanting to eat junk food in the first place. That;s pretty sick.

I want to know where her parents got that stupid name though. What's with these names?

Posted:I would laugh more at this...





But I did once phone the police when I go locked out of an empty hostel in my pyjamas..

At least I knew I was being a twit though.. and it was cold..

The cashier probably *couldn't* refund the money, I suspect their tills are set up the same as the ones I used to work on, so you couldn't do a refund (or open the till, unless you put through a fake sale, and got in even more trouble) without getting the manager. You just need a manager that's a jerk, which I suspect McB****rds has no shortage of.

They effectively stole her money and she had the right to call the police to help solve the dispute.
However, over there 911 isn't for such events (I say that because here in smalltown USA, it is).

I wouldn't have gone that route and told them to give me something else but hey, I don't eat at those crap places anyway.

Must resist racist jokes... about black people liking... fried chicken...

In honesty though, McDonalds should've given the lady her money back, I mean, whenever McDonalds has messed up my order (in Aus), they've been glad to either change it or refund it, I've gotten refunds from them, along with a free meal on a couple of occasions, so I'm not sure if it's just in America or whether the cashier messed up, but that doesn't sound right to me.

And yeah, she had every right to call the police, but 911? She needs to be educated on the meaning of the word "emergency".

Posted:I have to call the police on a regular basis, I see lots of people consuming illegal substances around the festivals, markets, gatherings and such that I frequent. It's no uncommon to see somebody smoking a marijuana cigarette (also known as a "joint") at occasions where there is spinning, so of course I have to call the police, eventually I just put the number in my phone. I can also take photos of people on my camera phone for evidence when the police arrive.

Posted:Geez, no kidding!!! I think someone has picked the wrong hobby to be the local narc!!! The one time that you'd have a pack of very irate hippies on your hands.

And speaking of irate...I think I'd be a bit ticked off if I ordered something, paid for it, and was then told that they didn't have it. I don't do fast food, but I think this woman was completely justified in acting the way she did. The best thing she could have done, tho, is to go inside and ask to see the manager. There is no reason why she should not have been given a full refund and offered a free meal, too. Sounds like an incompetent, lazy idiot probably took her order.

And yet again, another reason I wouldn't go to McDonalds

maybe we need a 'pot smoking and spinners' thread

I tend to agree. It sounds blatantly illegal to have some one pay for something you're not going to give them.

I remember hearing the Baltimore area was trying to promote 311 as a non-emergency number.

That's damn slack of the crew in your placement, MM, not to have amended that.
(Explanatory note.. the emergency number here is 000. IN UK it's 999.)

Which segues to another amusing anecdote
