Ahh, McDonald’s, the fast food that dreams and early onset diabetes diagnoses are made of.
Imagine heading to the local Mickey D’s to order your usual meal — a Deluxe Quarter Pounder — and looking down with dismay to find that you’ve only received one napkin. There’s simply no way you’ll be able to wipe the grease from a quarter pound of juicy beef from your face with only one napkin. You step up to the counter to ask for more, but you’re refused, and handed only a side of racism.
This is what one California man alleges in a $1.5 million lawsuit, and because being shamed by McDonald’s is a hefty burden to bear, he’s been unable to work ever since.
Ba-da-ba-ba-baaa, this guy was not lovin’ it — at all…
According to his lawsuit, [Webster] Lucas — who is black — then retorted, “I should have went to eat at the Jack-in-the-Box because I didn’t come here to argue over napkins. I came here to eat.”
That’s when Lucas says things got racist — claiming the manager (a Mexican-American) mumbled something about “you people.”
Lucas subsequently emailed the general manager to complain — insisting he couldn’t work because of the “undue mental anguish” he was suffering as a result of the napkin debacle — and says he was insultingly offered free burgers in return.
Lucas wants to super size instead — $1.5 million.
This case has definitely got some of that special sauce:
