In an article I read on news.yahoo.com, a 50-year-old man named Jayme John Leon's outrage was cleverly dubbed by police: "McFury." After reading the article, I can remember being annoyed by receiving blotched orders, but this -- this is over the top.
After walking into a local Oregon McDonald's on September 23, Leon ordered a quarter pounder -- without onions. When he returned home, he found that his burger had onions. He then would call the restaurant, complain, and he was told that he was entitled to a refund as well as a free replacement burger. Despite his agitation with the onion-covered burger, Leon reportedly ate the burger and arrived at McDonald's, expecting his refund and fresh burger.
Sgt. Claudio Grandjean, Gresham Police spokesman told the paper: "Since he ate the quarter pounder, McDonald's would not refund his money, sending Mr. Leon into a McFury."
An infuriated Jayme John Leon tossed his drink, broke the register and left the restaurant. His behavior landed him charges of first-degree criminal mischief, second-degree disorderly conduct and harrassment.
Clearly, Leon's behavior was beyond inappropriate, concerning an issue that most everyone encounters in their lifetime. But I am curious to know what you do when you frustrated with bad service.
What do you do when you arrive home, or check your order and find that your order is, well, not what you ordered? Do you return the food or roll your eyes and eat it anyway? If you return the food, how do you conduct yourself after having to drive back fast food restaurant and set things straight?
