McDonald's Out Of McNuggets? Call 911

By Robert Paul Reyes


"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.

Police say Goodman was cited on a misuse of 911 charge." The Associated Press

The McDonald`s manager should have issued a refund to Goodman, and sent her away sans McNuggets. Goodman was offered a larger portion of a different item in lieu of a refund, but she had a jones for Mc Nuggets and a Big Mac or a Quarter Pounder wasn`t going to sate her appetite.

Goodman acted in a self-centered and foolish way by calling 911 not once but three times to complain about not getting any McNuggets. This story is worth a chuckle or two, but we must not lose sight of the fact that tying up the 911 line with prank and irrelevant calls can result in death to a victim in need of real help.

Goodman told the 911 Operator: My McNuggets are an emergency. Goodman should be slapped with a hefty fine, and be forced to watch footage of traffic accidents. She needs to put things in perspective, and find out the real meaning of an emergency.
