Once again, 911 is for SUBWAY-related calls only!

As stupid as it is to call 11 over this, why wouldn't they just give her her money back and send her ass over to McDonald's?

But did she get her western bbq burger?

You steal from burger king -of course 911 will be called.

Burger king steals from you - 911 hopes you die in a ditch.

I worked at Burger King in high school.

It was a pit of misery. Which I deserved.

Anyhow, you don't go to Burger King if you're looking for great service. That would be like trying to find a fine champagne at Wal-Mart.

The line between newsworthy and clickworthy is almost gone.

Wait...gone.

This happens so much, maybe they need to start teaching this is schools. 911 is not to be used about your fast food order.

I've seen it happen in person for a guy who was denied a free refill. Pretty funny. Stupid, but funny.

While I assume this was a non issue and the woman was retarded... if I paid for a service or good I didnt receive, and they refused to right it, I would feel justified in calling the police, as I was just the victim of theft/fraud.

According to yesterday's BK thread, this is a 411 call.
the more you know.

If you get crappy service there are much better ways to seek justice than calling 911.

1) Call the survey line at the bottom of the list.
2) Call the franchise owner and berate his lackluster training and staff.
3) Video the encounter or next encounter and upload to YouTube and contact The Consumerist.
4) YELL AT THE PEASANTS FOR BEING INCOMPETENT!

Now, if you live in a city like Dallas you'll need decent spanish skills to insult the staff. YMMV, don't go back to that location for at least six weeks after making the all female hispanic staff cry.

I love how 911 has become the adult version of that playground teacher you tattled mean ol' classmates on.

It's more like a combination of overblown sense of self-entitlement and ignorance/stupidity. I was at a liquor store once and some kid was giving the cashier a hard time. She said his license looked fake and refused to ring him up. So he dialed 911. I asked what the hell he was calling the number for dire emergencies only and he looked at me dumbfounded. He said it was the only number he knew for the police.

At which point, the cashier and all of us on line went off on him. Cops showed up less than a minute later while the kid was arguing w/us, saying it wasn't for emergencies, it was quick-dial for the cops. Cops heard that part and arrested him for misuse of 911 (or whatever the official charge was). We all applauded.

halB: You steal from burger king -of course 911 will be called.

Burger king steals from you - 911 hopes you die in a ditch.

Did anyone read the article? It's only a few sentences long. The manager corrected the "lady's'" order, gave her a refund on top of it, and still she calls 911.


She says they wouldn't give her her money back and called 911 over it. BK says they corrected her order and gave her her money back.

Odd are, they argued for a while, then she got all crazy and called 911, and then BK gave her her money back.

Unless she just immediately called 911, then just give the psycho her money back and let her leave. Why argue with her about it? You might lose a nutcase of a customer?

Oh, how I wish these places would drop all the clown crap and over-sterilized identity and go back to just serving burgers.

That King guy probably freaked her out man, I'd be calling the Po Po also if that dude was lurking about..touching my food...leering at me...handling my shake...

Umm... When don't you get crappy service and half-assed food at Burger King?

They haven't given a shiat about the state of their customer service, restaurant cleanliness, or food quality in about a decade... Perhaps a little more.

I used to like them. Now I hate going into BK because it's such a f♥cking shiathole.

If BK wants more customers and profits, they might consider fixing this almost-universal perception of their restaurants... Y'know, instead of making expensive ads and spending on stupid gimmicks.

1. Clean restaurants.
2. Employees that are paid enough and treated well enough to give a shiat.
3. Food that doesn't look like it was served in a hospital cafeteria or out of a can.
4. Perhaps some thicker patties. Wendy's is kicking your ass on that one.

Honestly... The last time I ate in a BK, there was a huge soda pop spill on the floor, and all the tables were gross. I watched employees-- including the manager-- walk out to the floor, walk around the spill pretending not to see it, and ignore the situation for like half an hour before I finished up (I was reading, too, so I ate slow) and left.

And that shiat's not uncommon. BKs are GROSS.

In Niceville maybe you do call the police if someone hasn't been nice to you.

The report noted she was "extremely upset and crying."

Really? Crying over your order being screwed up?

I would guess that this woman cries several times throughout the day over ridiculous things. Some people are so emotionally unstable that anything will set them off.

This is one of the joys of having a Vietnamese wife. When I ask her to pick me up a "spicy chicken combo with a sweet tea" from Wendy's, I know I am probably going to end up with a biscuit from Bojangles: No Biggy (pun intended).

It's not misunderstanding.. just watch any episode of Worlds Dumbest Criminals and there's always one dude who called the cops because he didn't get mayo on his subway sub, a lady physically getting on top of the counter and destroying/ complaining because she got a 10 piece nugget meal instead of the 4 piece she ordered... These people took "customer is always right" to mean " you should totes take it as a personal attack if the teenager at the counter didn't give you what you wanted, whether you paid for it or not. Cops aren't customer service.
