McDonald’s Customer Gets Wrong Burger Twice, Fires Gun Into Window

Yes, it can be deeply disappointing when a fast-food joint doesn’t prepare your burger exactly how you ordered it. There are many ways to deal with that situation: ask for a manager, complain to corporate, demand that they re-make your meal immediately…or fire a pistol into the window of the restaurant. You could do that, too.

You could do that, but that doesn’t mean it’s a rational response or even remotely a good idea. Yet police say that late last night, that’s how a woman in Grand Rapids, Michigan made her concerns known to her local McDonald’s.

It all began when she came through the drive-thru and ordered a burger, which the restaurant prepared incorrectly. That’s unfortunate, but it happens. Employees promised her a free meal on her next visit when she complained, and she went on her way. That’s all a nice, normal fast food transaction.

Around 3 AM today, the woman came back and ordered another burger. This one was also prepared incorrectly. Instead of going through the normal complaint channels, police say that she got out of the car and fired a round into the restaurant’s window.

Fortunately, no one was injured in this altercation. The woman got back in the car and she and her companion drove off. The thing is, when she complained about the original incorrectly-made burger, she left her phone number behind. Her real phone number.

Our readers often tell us that when you don’t like something and complain about it, the last thing that you want is a coupon or voucher for more of that item. That’s true. We’d suggest requesting a refund before you start shooting, though.
