Obviously 911 was a poor choice as a way to contact the police in this case, but, to be fair, she was calling b/c they refused to refund the money they had taken BEFORE they informed her they were out of nuggets.

Not offering a refund is very poor business policy. I know that McDonalds doesn't operate this way and that the employee who refused the refund should be handed his hat.
Calling 911 was a bit foolish, but getting the authorities involved when someone has stolen from you is the right thing to do.
Now, what would you do in a similar situation? Let someone just steal 5 dollars from you? The amount is irrelevant.
There is a law around here called "theft by deception". Even though a person willingly gives you their money, they are giving it for a product or service that the vendor knew could not or would not be delivered.

They should have offered her the new McMeltdown.

What's annoying is that it can be really hard to find the non-emergency number for the police in your area. But you always remember 911.

The point is, emergency resources are being wasted dealing with a stupid complaint, putting people in REAL NEED into jeopardy.

The woman was stupid. Fact.

Agreed. She should have taken the employee's name, time of day, and a brief description of the incident. And hold on to the sales receipt, noting the time on receipt vs. the time she was informed that the store had no McNuggets. She then should have asked to see the manager and/or the phone number of the district manager. McDonald's does not want or need negative publicity.

Or call the national McNuggets crisis hotline at 555-277-4653.

Where i work, if we sell something we don't have in stock, it's a refund no questions. Plain and simple. That's common sense...

So, you're saying Burger King IS better?

Also, she should have insisted on a tour of the kitchen and taken digital photos and footage of the fryers in question, making a brief note of said fryer's serial number. A brief interview of the cook staff would help if the case goes to court.

Now you're on to something. Make sure the photos are digitally time stamped. Also, always get names and always note the time. There are several good mass tort lawyeres who could get you a good deal of money for mental suffering.

I think she had "mental suffering" before she went into the place.

She should learn how to cook good food and then won't get into trouble both health wise and with the legal system as well.
Silly person to call 911 it's not life threatening and is probably a good lesson for all those persons who have to be shown the result of their actions in order to think first
NO sympathy here!!

Hey, if you listen to the tape, she clearly states that they are trying to force her to eat something she doesn't want to!

And she's at McDonalds!

No tab, she said "they can't force me to eat something I don't want." No one was "forcing her" to eat the meal. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

What do you think they were holding her down while someone shoved another meal in her mouth? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Gezz, Walmart does this to me all the time on returns. Maybe I should call 9/1-1 on them. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

You know when I finally listened to the tape I thought it was a Saturday night live comedy act.

Mc/customer.. "My emergency is my chicken nuggets is a bit underdone! I can't eat um this way because I like um well done I tell ya!
