Burgers with bite - McDonalds now serving pre-owned pates
Food, glorious food! The great thing about food is that if somebody doesn't want theirs, you can eat it instead! It's how parents manage to put on extra weight, by hoovering up the pizza and chicken nuggets the kids don't finish. In restaurants, you can just lean over and finish up that last spoonful of mash and gravy! And if you're at McDonald's, you can buy that burger the customer before couldn't stomach. No, wait.
And so to Arkansas in the US, where Ronald's staff served a customer and his wife with a cold Angus burger - with a bite out of it. The pre-owned item was immediately returned to the restaurant, where the duty manager, Larry, disappeared to speak to the kitchen and investigate:
"According to [the customer], Larry then told him it was a hamburger that a previous customer had returned, apologised for it being sold that way, and laughed it off."
How they must have laughed. The customer asked Larry to sign the refund slip as proof, and kept the burger. Why? Because he's apparently considering just how much trouble he can cause for Ronald:
"I wish I could just throw it in the trash, but then I'd feel bad if it continued to happen and someone got sick because I didn't speak up. There's enough negativity in this world without spreading more, so we try to stay positive, but this McDonald's has been a mess for years."
