Woman calls 911 three times when McNuggets run out

04Mar09

911From TCPalm, Florida: Told McDonald’s was out of Chicken McNuggets after paying for a 10-piece meal, a local woman called 911.
Three times.
“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,” Latreasa L. Goodman told police. “This is an emergency.”
The McNugget meltdown happened last week at a McDonald’s in the 600 block of North U.S. 1 and ended with Goodman, 27, getting a notice to appear in court on a misuse of 911 charge, according to a recently released police report.
Goodman told investigators she tried to get a refund for the 10-piece McNuggets, but the cashier told her all sales are final.
“I called 911 because I couldn’t get a refund, and I wanted my McNuggets,” Goodman told police.

    Beh..
    a parte l’ovvia preoccupazione del 911 per il rischio di proliferazione di chiamate del genere (immagino abbiano tanto altro da fare), la storia mi pare dirci qualcosa
    sulla forma mentis di questa giovane donna che si aspetta una sorta di Papà Super Man à la carte che la salvi dai mostri cattivi. Ma prima di liquidarla con sufficienza, penso sia utile riflettere sul rango di EMERGENZA dato al fatto che ‘I couldn’t get a refund’.
    Mi pare ci sia un pezzetto di amara verità dentro questa doléance.
    Certamente ha esagerato nel chiamare il 911, ma un consiglio che mi verrebbe da darle è di fare amicizia con il povero cassiere, certamente costretto a dire ‘all sales are final’ dallo stesso inutile formalismo che ha indotto il 911 a citarla in tribunale.
