McDonald’s Just Can’t Get It Right

What ever happened to the days when disgruntled customers would ask to speak with a manager or call customer service if they were dissatisfied with a meal? Apparently those days are long gone if you consider the growing number of stories every week where customers are taking their anger out in surprisingly ridiculous and violent ways.

In a McDonald’s in France, a man pulled an ax on an unsuspecting drive-thru employee after he  was allegedly sold cold fries. The attack happened around 2 a.m. Sunday, Le Parisien reported. The man threw the ax and shattered the drive-thru window before driving away. The police caught up with him soon after and took him into custody.

Unfortunately, McDonald’s has been the victim of similar attacks – like the two Tennessee men in 2012 who were arrested after throwing bricks into the restaurant’s windows. They claimed that their cheeseburgers lacked the right amount of onions.

Or more recently, the couple in Mesa, Arizona who allegedly called the police after they failed to get the hash browns they ordered. The couple, Michael and Nova Smith, an employee from the store, and a customer all called 911 after the Smith’s threw their food at an employee.

In an interview with ABC15, Nova explains why she threw her food at the employee. “…that was out of frustration which I probably shouldn’t have done, but I did. Fighting over $2 of hash browns is ridiculous. It is ridiculous to have to fight that hard just to get customer service.”

The couple have been charged with assault and disorderly conducted , the Associated Press reported.
