Take your own scales to McD's if you think you're getting chip-gypped
Here in the UK, we are blessed with Watchdog – Anne Robinson’s unusual face moves around slowly and makes noises about shabby customer service. Meanwhile her dashing ward Matt Allwright darts around on a motorbike, exposing dodgy builders and mechanics with all the homoerotic undertones that come from getting the job done in biking leathers with his mate.
Over in Japan, this anonymous chap has taken a more low-key approach to consumer justice. Believing that he was being short-portioned when it came to the fries in his local McDonalds, he took his portable scales in with him to prove it once and for all.
The McD’s website claims a portion weighs 135 grams but our intrepid reporter is served just 113 grams of salty chip sticks. He takes it up with the manager and his doggedness is rewarded with extra fries. But look – they’ve screwed him again! Two grams short! Dickhead.
Have any of you ever taken your own independent measures to prove a customer service point? Are any of you really THAT petty? We think you might be. Tell us about the times when your sense of justice overwhelmed normal social behaviour and the best one might win a prize of some kind that we haven’t given much thought to yet…
