A California man is suing McDonald’s for $1.5 million. Ironically his case is based on a Whopper of a story.
A McDonald’s customer is suing the fast food restaurant for $1.5 million because he was given only one napkin with his meal.
Webster Lucas claims he is now unable to work because of the “undue mental anguish” and “emotional distress” caused by the incident.
Mr Lucas, who is African-American, says the he was racially abused by the manager when he went back to the counter to ask for more. The employee, who is named only as “Angel” and is said to be of Mexican-American appearance, is alleged to have mumbled something that sounded like “you people,” Mr Lucas claims.
Okay, I am already calling b.s. McDonald’s has no shortage of napkins inside their restaurants. If Lucas received one napkin, he could have easily stood up, walked three feet, and grabbed another one. But no, instead, he stood up, walked ten feet, and asked the low-information voter behind the counter for one.
Then… amidst all the noise and confusion common inside your average McDonald’s, Lucas heard a barely audible “You people” from a man with a Spanish accent. Uh-huh.
Then… Lucas was SO OFFENDED by this murmured remark and the lone napkin that he decided to sue McDonald’s for $1.5 MILLION DOLLARS???
How about this. McDonald’s gives you a satisfying settlement of $0 million dollars, a lifetime ban from eating inside its restaurants and viewing their commercials, and three napkins for the low,low price of on the house.
Now go get your f**king shinebox.
