Huh, every McDonalds I've been in for the last few years has had napkin dispensers in the dining room so I can take as any as I want.

Same here. They're generally near the soft drink dispensers, next to the straws & lids.

Personally I'd like to see the U.S. follow in the footsteps of other countries regarding frivolous lawsuits. In some countries if you file a frivolous lawsuit & lose the court makes you pay for things like court fees, attorney fees for whomever you sued, etc. IMHO that makes people less inclined to file such lawsuits.

There is weird trend happening where customers take ALL the available  condiments and napkins.  I've seen it several  times.  I even saw a woman take an entire tray of sliced lemons at Chipolte.

I used to work with a guy who  took bundles of paper napkins every day at lunch.  He would cram rolled up bundles into all his pockets.  I asked his why and told me he did it so he wouldn't have to buy toilet  paper.

I assume neither of you live in a city? D.C. isn't that bad, but the McDonalds in Philly would ration everything. You had access to the ketchup pumps, but they would't even give you the little cups without asking - people just stuck their trays under them.

The inner city ones have limits on everything, and huge signs posting how long you can loiter inside the restaurant.  The dispensers would disappear if they weren't bolted to the tables.

People would come in, order one thing off the 99 cent menu, and "eight waters with lemon slices...THOSE ARE STILL FREE, RIGHT?, yeah, and some extra cups, extra napkins and I mean a lot, ketchup, mustard, salt & pepper, gimme ten of each McNugget sauce, extra forks, knives, spoons, and gimme a bunch of extra bags, too.  WHAT?  WHAT?  WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THE CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS RIGHT?  I THOUGHT THIS WAS AMERICA!"

Well, until a year ago I lived in Eugene, Oregon, the second largest city in the state & I never had any problems getting napkins & I never saw anyone have to ask for the little ketchup cups (don't get ketchup myself). The counter person would ask them if they wanted ketchup with their order & if they said yes, they put the cup on the tray.

It's not a weird trend, but it tends to happen in lower-class, crime-ridden neighborhoods..

This particular McDonald's is in Pacoima, a real shiatty part of the Valley that I visit only when absolutely necessary. I haven't been there in well over a decade.

It's assholes like that is the reason why there are limits to lawsuit damages in states like Texas, where people will only get a few measly thousand dollars, IF they can miraculously win a legitimate lawsuit against a corporation and their army of high-priced lawyers.

McD's should be sued for those DINKY-ASS little soufle cups for ketchup! Dafuq they think they're kidding? Who dafuq wants to dip a 1/2 inch into a leeetle teenytinyittybitty cup and nibble on one french fry? You may as well drink your soda with an eye dropper! When I dunk fries, I want to DUNK fries. Not lightly touch in an area where ketchup may be possibly in the vicinity.

Why didn't he just steal the TP from work?


Seriously though, some people are farking weird.  Get them around free food, and they're stuffing their pockets, get them around free anything, and they're stuffing it in their pockets.


Usually, it's people who could otherwise afford they stuff they're taking, but, hey, free stuff!?


Oh, and as far as the article goes, the guys a moron, and any judge will laugh this one off.

I was in a Taco Bell once when I briefly lived in Savannah. The girl working the counter was named Kimchi. She thought I was farking with her when I mentioned Kimchi was a food. It was...funny. "Kimchi ain't no food, it a name, white boah!" This was before smart phones, so I couldn't prove it.

I have no idea how one would play with white or brown liquids, aside from perhaps filling levels, but that would be fairly retarded. Doable, but retarded. Also, chess has 64 spaces.

How did you differentiate the pieces?

If you used them to play checkers, I could understand, but chess...

Q, K, R, KN. P, B written on the top of whatever you're using for pieces...
/have played chess with less
//actually, we drew a crown for the King, used K for knight

WTF?

I thought you were using the cups (filled with either white or brown liquid) as the pieces?  You used them for a board?  How'd you play on a 32 space board?

I have no idea how one would play with white or brown liquids, aside from perhaps filling levels, but that would be fairly retarded. Doable, but retarded. Also, chess has 64 spaces.


So, I am sorry, maybe I am retarded.  You said you took 32 cups to play an espresso vs white hot chocolate chess match.
Unless there's some euphemisms here, I am truly not understanding the mechanics.  can you please indulge me, and explain what 32 cups did for you , in relationship to a chess match?
What role did the 32 cups play?

I was in a Taco Bell once when I briefly lived in Savannah. The girl working the counter was named Kimchi. She thought I was farking with her when I mentioned Kimchi was a food. It was...funny. "Kimchi ain't no food, it a name, white boah!" This was before smart phones, so I couldn't prove it.

That is TERRIFIC!!
I was at a place dealing with a receptionist. She answered the phone and said "this is Brushetta". Classic and true.

Bathia_Mapes: BizarreMan: Huh, every McDonalds I've been in for the last few years has had napkin dispensers in the dining room so I can take as any as I want.

Same here. They're generally near the soft drink dispensers, next to the straws & lids.

Personally I'd like to see the U.S. follow in the footsteps of other countries regarding frivolous lawsuits. In some countries if you file a frivolous lawsuit & lose the court makes you pay for things like court fees, attorney fees for whomever you sued, etc. IMHO that makes people less inclined to file such lawsuits.


That makes sense for cases like this, but some other cases that are not so cut and dry might cause people to not take on big companies out of fear of being labeled frivolous and owing big bucks.

I assume neither of you live in a city? D.C. isn't that bad, but the McDonalds in Philly would ration everything. You had access to the ketchup pumps, but they would't even give you the little cups without asking - people just stuck their trays under them.

Well, until a year ago I lived in Eugene, Oregon, the second largest city in the state & I never had any problems getting napkins & I never saw anyone have to ask for the little ketchup cups (don't get ketchup myself). The counter person would ask them if they wanted ketchup with their order & if they said yes, they put the cup on the tray.

I remember grabbing 32 of the those paper cups to play an espresso vs. white hot chocolate chess game.

I wasn't the one playing with the liquids. That was God Is My Co-Pirate. I was just relating how I've played chess sans actual pieces. One could take 32 cups, turn them over, and write corresponding letters on the bottoms/tops. I've played with a few makeshift pieces.

It's called making your own food/going to better restaurants and shopping online. It's not hard to avoid these people.

I see what happened.  Sorry, it's late.

I covered that. For instance, I've played chess with pieces of paper. You write a K, Q, B, P, R, Kn(knight) or similar. I've played with pennies, nickles, dimes, quarters dollar, and half dollar coins. I've played with checkers marked such.

If you wanted to make your life difficult, and play with liquids, you could use levels of such to differentiate between pieces. But even dudes in prison don't do that.
